The Warren Easton senor has caught 53 passes for 1,012 yards and 13 touchdowns this season. The Eagles (7-1), ranked No. 4 in The New Orleans Advocate’s Large School Super 10 and No. 5 in Class 4A, will play Landry-Walker on Friday at Behrman Stadium.

What are your thoughts about Friday’s game against Landry-Walker?

It’s a big game. People are pumping it up and making it bigger than it really is. We still have more games after that. But it’s a big game.

What’s the latest on your recruiting?

LSU is still recruiting me hard. Texas Tech is on me hard. Clemson and Georgia. That’s just a few schools. But I am trying to put all of that on the back burner right now and just trying to focus on winning a state championship.

Has recruiting been stressful?

Yes it’s been stressful. In my position, I have an opportunity to go almost anywhere and probably have a good chance to play. But I have to try to find the place that’s a good fit for me. So that’s the tough part. I will announce in the Under Armour game.

Who is the best defensive back you have ever played against?

I would have to say Deshawn Raymond (East Jefferson).

If you could get anybody from another school as a teammate, who would it be?

I would have to say my close friend Donte Jackson (Riverdale).

What do you do before a game to get pumped up?

I just close my eyes and think about my life and think about where I could be. I listen to my music, usually Meek Mill.

Why do you wear unlucky No. 13?

When I got here, I wanted No. 4, but someone had it. So I just got 13. When I ended up with it my dad said he liked that number. His birthday is on the 13th.

Who is your favorite NFL receiver?

I have a lot of them who I like. I like Brandon Marshall. I like Steve Smith. Cordarrelle Patterson. Julio Jones. I could go all day naming my favorites ones.

Who is your favorite person to follow on Twitter?

Odell Beckham Jr.

Who is your favorite NFL team?

The Saints. It’s always been the Saints, even when they were the Aints. It was starting to look like they were going to be the Aints again. But they have turned it around now.

You have two more regular-season games and then the playoffs? How do you envision the season ending up?

I see us ending up at state (championship). We have to take care of the regular-season games first and hopefully clinch the No. 1 seed. We just have to be disciplined because that what it’s about in the playoffs. It’s not just about talent.
