|Ouachita football celebrates break-out season|
Head coach John Carr and his staff had much to celebrate last week when the Ouachita Lions gathered for their annual football awards banquet at the school.
The Lions finished the season with a 10-3 overall record including a 7-1 mark in district play. That was good enough for second-place behind eventual Class 5A runner-up West Monroe.
"We had a great season," Ouachita head coach John Carr said. "A lot of kids have a lot to be proud of looking at what they accomplished."
Ouachita went the farthest they have gone in the Class 5A playoffs since 2000 when they lost to West Monroe in the quarterfinals this season.
The top honors of most valuable player went to linebacker Cameron Blakes on defense and running back Montrell Conner offense.
Blakes, a three-year starter, is committed to play college football at the University of Louisiana-Monroe next season.
Blakes recorded 85 tackles, including seven for loss, 13 sacks and one fumble recovery during a solid senior campaign.
Conner, a Mississippi State commitment, leaves Ouachita as one of the best running backs in school history.
Conner rushed for 1,961 yards and 19 touchdowns as well as two receiving touchdowns during his senior season.
The coaches named linebacker Madison Raborn, safety Clay Hust, and defensive end Cornist Broadway as permanent team captains.
This honor has been bestowed on some of the finest team players and athletes to come through the football program at Ouachita High School each season.
Wide receiver Robert Jenkins was the recipient of Scholastic award for his outstanding performance in the classroom as well as his contributions on the football team.
The coaches also awarded scholarships to three deserving players during the event in front of a large gathering of supporters and family.
Keenan Harris was awarded the George Pruitt scholarship. Tim Milton was given the Tom Bond Scholarship, while Brian Washington was awarded the Wincel Bass scholarship.
