|West Monroe linebacker selected as Army All-American|
West Monroe High School linebacker Barkevious Mingo will play in the annual U.S. Army High School All-American game.
The announcement was made Tuesday at the school. Mingo, a senior for the Rebels defense, leads the team in tackles and has been an integral part of WMHS reaching the playoffs the past two seasons.
Mingo is the second player in the history of West Monroe to play in the game. Former linebacker Luke Sanders, who later played at LSU, was also selected for the honor in 2003.
The crowd gathered for the press conference included the entire football team and coaching staff.
"He is well liked by everyone," head coach Don Shows said. "He is not just a great player but he is an even better individual. He always has a smile on his face."
Mingo took up football his junior year after being a basketball starter for the Rebels, where he still plans to continue after football is over.
Mingo visited LSU to watch the Alabama game last week. While he enjoyed the visit, the senior said he wants to finish his high school career strong and not worry too much about college plans right now.
Mingo said he wants to wait until after the Rebels finish playing to make his decision on a college. He will take more visits and will not announce the decision on the U.S. Army All-American game broadcast as many top prospects choose to do.
In local action, Mingo will be looking for his first state championship ring on the football field when the Rebels begin their playoff season at home against the Scotlandville Hornets. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
Bastrop quarterback Reuben Randle was also selected for the U.S. Army High School All-American game.
