Since he has been deemed by national recruiting journalists as the best high school football player in the nation, it seems only natural that St. Augustine senior running back Leonard Fournette would also be cited as the Outstanding Player on offense in the Catholic League.
And so he has.
The sensational back, who rushed for 1,802 yards on 194 carries and scored 16 touchdowns, has been cited by NOLACatholicLeague.com for his standout performances.
Fournette (6-foot-1, 215 pounds) also caught 42 passes for 575 yards and four TDs for the District 9-5A champions. In his career, he also competed as a wide receiver, safety, linebacker and punter, in addition to returning punts and kickoffs.
The No. 1-ranked and No. 1-seeded Purple Knight swept top honors of the team with linebacker Kelly Aguillard, a 6-foot-1, 225-pound senior, being tabbed as the Outstanding Player on defense.
Holy Cross senior linebacker Zach Harris was also considered for the MVP.
In his second season at St. Aug, Cryril Crutchfield has been singled out as the Coach of the Year. In the regular season, St. Aug downed power John Curtis 29-28 and Rummel 35-21 and but lost to Karr 32-24. The Knights had their season end in the state semifinals with a 31-28 loss to defending champion Rummel.
All selections are based upon regular-season performances.
