LAFM: Name, position, school?

My name is Jarrett Elliott, and I am a OL for Comeaux High School.

 

 

LAFM: Current weight and height?

6-2,  275 lbs

 

 

LAFM: Current ACT score and GPA?

22 ACT  3.5 GPA

 

 

LAFM: Max bench, max squat, max clean?

My max bench is 300 lbs, max squat 475 lbs, and clean 265 lbs.

 

 

LAFM: How did the season go for you and the team?

 

It went pretty good and better than I expected. On a team level, I thought we played unselfishly this year and as a unified team. We finished 6-5 on the year.

 

LAFM: What has been your favorite game this season?

Acadiana-For me personally it was the game in which I faced the most competition. Number 91 is a great player for them as well as the rest of their DL. I enjoy playing against tough opponents.

 

 

 

LAFM: Who is your favorite football player of all time?

I think as of right now, I would have to say Brandon Albert the LT for the Chiefs. I also like Ben Grubbs for the Saints. My all time favorite is probably DE Deacon Jones. He was nasty.

 

 

LAFM: How old were you when you started playing and where?

I was in 7th grade so about 12 years old.

 

 

LAFM: Do you have any family members or friends that have had a big influence on you as you play football?

I would say my dad. I see his hard work ethic in everything he does. It makes me strive for that mentality and work harder in everything I do.

 

 

LAFM: If football does not work out for you, what do you see yourself doing? Have you thought of a major in college?

I want to be a pastor in a church if football does not work out. I am heavy on my faith. I want to major in business because I feel like that would help me run a church.

 

 

LAFM: Are any schools recruiting you right now?

Nicholls and Northwestern are two schools that are recruiting me. McNeese is slightly recruiting me as well.

 

 

 

LAFM: What positions are you being recruited for? What is your favorite position?

I am being recruited as a Guard or Center. My favorite position before this year was LT, but now I enjoy Guard. I love pulling and nailing people. I love being able to embarrass a safety every now and then when they come down to my level.

 

 

LAFM: What was something special about your team this year?

This is our first winning season since 2005. It was the first time we made the playoffs since then as well.
