Northwest Louisiana, including the Shreveport and Bossier area, has long had reputation of producing great collegiate football talent every year. One of the most successful high school players to come out of the area is NFL Hall of Famer quarterback Terry Bradshaw, who played at Woodlawn High in Shreveport. Some recent success stories includes Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, who played at Haughton, and quarterback Brandon Harris, who finished his college career at North Carolina after spending three seasons at LSU. Two local stars who are currently making a name for themselves at LSU include defensive back Greedy Williams, who played at Calvary Baptist, and linebacker Devin White who was a beast at North Webster. This year is no different.

Students from all over the area signed with various college programs in December’s early signing period while some will ink their name on the dotted line on National Signing Day with the school of their choice. All this local talent will continue to work hard and look to stake their claim as the next football star to come out of northwest Louisiana.
