High School Football Recruiting: TCA Baton Rouge

Josh Sibley played football for approximately thirteen years. He is now a scout with Louisiana Gridiron Football and is currently scouting high school level talent throughout Louisiana. He hopes to help recruits reach their full potential and get to that next level of play.

The Church Academy (TCA) is located in Baton Rouge, LA. Last season they won one game, but they had tremendous issues at the quarterback position, having four different starters throughout the season.

Darrel does flash speed at times, but with his undersized frame will be at a DIII school. Here is a link http://www.hudl.com/profile/7489615/darrel-vessel
