Recruit Spotlight: TE Guy Lecompte Jr, Mandeville High School
by Jace LeJeune
There are many kids that look up to their head coaches as their main father figures in their life. This is especially the case for Guy Lecompte Jr. as he is the son of longtime head coach Guy Lecompte Sr. Guy Lecompte Jr. not only got to experience playing high school football at the highest level in the state, but he did it playing for his dad. The Mandeville Head Coach’s son was a great complement to him because his son was a great leader and was like a coach on the field. Lecompte Jr. may have never put up crazy statistics and numbers, but he definitely was a productive football player and a complete tight end for the Skippers. Over his career, he was used primarily as a blocker, but when he did get the chance to catch the football, he was really productive and a go to receiver whenever the team needed him to produce. He is also very athletic and was a two sport athlete during his high school career. What separates players from being good and great is what they are willing to do for the bigger picture and help the team win. That is exactly what the Skippers did during the reliable senior tight end’s time at Mandeville. The Skippers posted winning seasons and made the playoffs during all three years especially in Lecompte’s junior season when the team went all the way to the semifinals. This year’s team captain for the Skippers made sure that his teammates were getting the job on the field while his father was leading them on the sidelines. The father-son duo proved to be a great combination for the Skippers over the last couple of seasons. Guy Lecompte Jr. will take after his father and will play football at the next level, but this time, it will be for the Northwestern State Demons. In today’s article, we caught up with the Northwestern State signee as he talked about his high school career, playing for his dad, signing with the Demons, and so much more!

LAFM: What was your best game while at Mandeville and why?
My best game at Mandeville was probably the Scotlandville game my junior year because that was one of the closest games I’ve ever played, and I made some key blocks to help my teammates score.
LAFM: Last season was a pretty good season as the team went 7-5 and made the 2nd round of the playoffs. What are your thoughts on last season as a whole?

LAFM: What is your intended major for college?
LAFM: Not a lot of players get the chance to play for their dad. What is it like to play for your dad?
