University High football coach Chad Mahaffey gets a reminder of how good running back Mike Hollins is every time he puts together season highlights.
“I go through every game to look for the best plays on offense and special teams and I save them,” Mahaffey said. “When I am done, I have to cut down the number of plays by Mike. There are so many, which shows his consistency. Over his career, he has always been so consistent.”
Consistency, big numbers and another championship season helped Hollins capture the Outstanding Offensive Player award on the Louisiana Sports Writers Association’s Class 3A All-State team. The Virginia signee helped lead the Cubs to their second straight 13-0 season and Division II select title.
Hollins shares top honors on the LSWA 3A squad with Eunice linebacker Avery Lee and coach Paul Trosclair. Lee was voted the Outstanding Defensive Player, while Trosclair claimed coach of the Year honors after the Bobcats won the 3A title, the school’s first LHSAA title since 1982.
Hollins finished with 157 carries for 1,648 yards, 33 touchdowns and was one of six Cubs on the LSWA team. Lee recorded 101 tackles for Eunice and is joined on the team by receiver Matt Domingues (71 catches, 1,321 yards. 11 TDs), defensive back Carlin Vigers (109 tackles).
Other U-High players on the team were quarterback John Gordon McKernan (123-of-185, 1,929 yards passing, 27 touchdowns), offensive lineman Mark Coppola, defensive lineman Jaquelin Roy (42½ tackles, 3½ sacks, two interceptions), linebacker Jacob Burke (111 tackles, six sacks, three interceptions), defensive back Jordan Clark (44 tackles, four interceptions) and kick returner Christian Harris (503 return yards, three touchdowns).
