Recruit Video Interview: OC Riley Lawrence, Dutchtown High School
by Jace LeJeune
As it is every other day here at Louisiana Football Magazine, it has been pretty busy especially over the last couple months when we have conducted our Louisiana Football Magazine photo shoots over that time period. We have finished our 23rd annual magazine cover shoot, but this year will mark the third straight year in which we have conducted both a North and South photo shoot. This year, we shot the North photo shoot at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches and we shot the South photo shoot at Catholic High School in Baton Rouge. Both events were really successful, and we would like to thank everybody who has helped us make both events so special for the players that were involved. Besides taking the photos, Louisiana Football Magazine’s owner Lee Brecheen and editor Jace LeJeune got the chance to talk to some of the top Class of 2020 players in the state of the Louisiana. Both Brecheen and LeJeune talked to the recruits about their top schools, goals for the upcoming season, hobbies, and so much more. The good news is that football season begins this month. Here at Louisiana Football Magazine, we know that you have been waiting long enough for some Louisiana football to start so we will post these video interviews featuring some of the best players in the entire state that were taken at both photoshoot events to help you get through that time!
In today’s recruit interview, we go to Catholic High School where Lee Brecheen got the chance to talk to Dutchtown High School senior OC Riley Lawrence!
Riley Lawrence: There are a lot of qualities that you want in your prototypical offensive lineman, but two of the biggest qualities an offensive lineman should have are intelligence and versatility. Those two words perfectly describe Dutchtown High School senior Riley Lawrence. He is the type of player that Coach Guy Mistretta absolutely loves. Here is a guy that has a 4.6 GPA in the classroom and sets a great example as a student athlete. Lawrence brings versatility to the table as he has played every position on the offensive line during his time playing for the Griffins. Wherever the team needs him to play, that is where he will play whether it would be center, guard, or even tackle at 6-2, 290 pounds. Last season, those attributes stuck out to a lot of the opposing teams and players as Lawrence received 2nd Team All-District and All-Parish honors. Now, in his senior season, Lawrence looks to not only improve as a player, but as a leader trying to set the foundation that Coach Mistretta is trying to help build. As of right now, the Dutchtown High School wrestler and offensive lineman’s top schools are Louisiana Tech and Lamar, but he is still open for more collegiate opportunities.
In today’s recruit video spotlight, Louisiana Football Magazine’s recruiting guru Lee Brecheen caught up with the standout Dutchtown offensive lineman to talk about how he achieves over a 4.6 GPA while playing football, the position on the offensive line he will be playing this year, and much more!
