Future Outlook: Barbe High School

This year at LGF, we will be taking a look at the senior class of some Louisiana high schools and taking a look at their potential to play at the next level. Categories for each position are measured on a 1-10 scale, with 10 being well above average and 1 being well below average. We continue with the senior class of the Barbe Buccaneers.


Josh Thomas DB 5-11 187lbs


Plays corner and safety. Good tackler. Speed is OK. Special teams player is a plus. Needs to add more strength to help in the run game. Future Outlook: D3 corner


Dana Fontenot RB 5-10 190lbs


Good vision and balance. Can catch the ball out of the backfield. Tough runner does not usually go down after first contact. Hits the hole with speed and can run away from the defense. Future Outlook: D1/D2 running back


Dalon Getwood LB 5-10 190lbs


Good tackler in traffic and in the open field. Stiff hips when turning to cover. Good blitzer, speed is a plus. Future Outlook: FBS/D2 LB


Jordan Cordova SS 6-2 205lbs


Big hitter. Listed as safety but built and plays like a linebacker. Very good speed and play recognition. Sure tackler. Defeats/sheds blocks. Future Outlook: D1/FBS LB


Devon Pauley WR 5-8 140lbs


Small stature but willing blocker. Good hands. Decent speed. Lined up mostly outside, probably will need to play slot at next level. Future Outlook: D2/D3 receiver


Sean White OL 6-3 300lbs


Very strong as a run blocker. Stiff movements on pass pro. Technique needs work. Slow off the snap but power helps make up for it. Future Outlook: D2 OL


Chandler Crawford DL 6-3 290lbs


Quick first step on snap. Demands a double team because of strength and quickness. Will need to learn to use hands better as competition gets better. Future Outlook: D2 DL


Mason Caldwell K 5-9 145lbs


Strong leg. Consistent touchbacks on kickoffs. Accurate on short/medium field goals.


Lamarcus Benton DL 5-9 215lbs


Short stature and quickness allows him to beat tackles around the edge. Strong enough to set the edge. Hand technique needs work. Future Outlook: D3 DL


Brayden Adams LS/LB 6-2 210lbs


Has good size for LB position. Hustles on all plays. Solid tackler. Needs to learn how to shed blocks more often. Good LS.


Jarden James DB 5-10 150lbs.


Physical against the run. Good blitzer from the slot. Play recognition is very good. Solid tackler. Has enough size/speed to cover. Future Outlook: D2 corner


Jacob Crawford SS 5-8 150lbs


Tough. Does a lot of the dirty work like setting the edge in the run game. Tackles well. Coverage techniques need work. Future Outlook: D3 Safety


Keandre Turner WR 6-3 200lbs


Good size and uses it to his advantage against DBs. Good hands. Catches the ball away from his body. Enough speed to get behind the defense. Good blocker. Future Outlook: FBS/D2 receiver
