Corey Davis, Lafayette, 6-2, senior
Davis was the best player on a Lafayette squad that went undefeated in District 3-5A and earned the No. 6 seed in the playoffs.
The senior guard has consistently improved throughout his high school career, culminating this season when he led the Lions and landed a scholarship from Louisiana-Lafayette.
In a season full of highlights, the 31 points Davis dropped on district rival Acadiana, including 23 points in the second half to preserve the Lions’ undefeated district record, stand out.
Carencro coach Christopher Kovatch said the Bears designed several schemes throughout the last couple of years to slow Davis but could never stop him completely.
“The way he can score is just something you can’t teach,” Kovatch said. “He has such great physical ability. For him to continuing to score the way he does even though everyone knows he’s their top guy is truly impressive.”
Corey Davis, Lafayette
Kalob Ledoux, Lafayette Christian, 6-5 junior
A key cog in Lafayette Christian’s run to the 1A final. Ledoux blended prototypical perimeter size and speed with an improved shooting touch from outside to dominate top competition throughout the state.
Cole Kelley, Teurlings, 6-7, junior
Kelley averaged 22.4 points per game for Teurlings this season and his 6-7 frame was a key part of an effective Rebels defense.
Jeremy Wiltz, Cecilia, 6-8, senior
Wiltz was the heart and soul of a frisky Cecilia squad that hung tough in a murderous district. The bouncy forward averaged 26 points per game and used tremendous effort to crash the glass on the offensive end for put-backs.
Denzel Austin, Beau Chene, 5-11, senior
Austin was the leading scorer for a high-powered Beau Chene offense that shared a district title with Washington-Marion. Austin’s 3-point range on offense allowed a perimeter-oriented Blue Gators offense to run smoothly.
Hunter Register, Comeaux, 6-5, senior
Register, who signed a football scholarship with Minnesota during the season, was the emotional and statistical leader for a young Comeaux squad.
Peter Kishbaugh, St. Thomas More, 6-5, senior
The senior sharpshooter has a polished game that looks ready for the next level. Kishbaugh averaged 12 points per game.
Jacob Siner, Carencro, 6-2, senior
Siner was one of two seniors to start for Carencro this season, along with center Devante Parker, and was the Bears’ primary ball handler. Siner’s play this season allowed the Bears to get into the playoffs and then pull off a stunning upset over New Orleans powerhouse St. Augustine.
Greg Williams, Lafayette Christian, 6-5, freshman
Williams ranked as one of the top freshmen in the nation heading into the season and backed up the acclaim with a successful debut season. Operating as the Knights’ third offensive option, behind the Ledoux twins, Williams flashed impressive athleticism to go with strong playmaking skills.
Drapper Anthony, St. Martinville, 5-10, senior
Anthony received less acclaim than backcourt teammate Bradley Savoy heading into the season, but the sweet-shooting guard was the rock the Tigers leaned on during this district-winning season.
Bry’Kiethon Mouton, Acadiana, 6-4, senior
The stocky Mouton used a slick handle and strong frame to lead the Rams in scoring. Mouton operated as a point forward and stood out in a stacked district.
Jacob Ledoux, Lafayette Christian, 6-5, junior
Jacob’s game is much like his brother’s, and his explosive athleticism helped him finish around the basket. Jacob acted as more of a facilitator for the Knights’ offense, while Kalob scored more thanks to an advanced shooting stroke.
Galen Alexander, Breaux Bridge, 6-6, sophomore
Alexander was a breakout performer in District 5-4A as a sophomore, using top-notch athleticism and a lanky frame to evolve into a consistent scorer averaging 17.8 points per game in his sophomore season.
Bradley Savoy, St. Martinville, 5-8, senior
The combination of Savoy and Anthony earned St. Martinville a No. 8 seed in the 4A playoffs, with Savoy adding flair to Anthony’s more workman-like game.
Christian Freeman, Lafayette, 6-5, forward
Freeman provided toughness and explosive athletic ability down low of the Lions throughout the season. Working off the ball and providing solid defense, Freeman helped the Lions form a formidable defense.
