|Two Neville athletes accept college scholarships|
The Neville Tigers sent a pair of student-athletes to the next level when they signed college scholarship offers on campus Wednesday morning.
In football, offensive lineman Justin Ellis signed a national letter of intent to play football for head coach Derek Dooley and the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs.
Ellis was a two-year starter at offensive guard on a team that produced over 4,000 yards rushing last year. Ellis earned all-district honors following his senior season.
Ellis had three rushing touchdowns in goal-line situations for the Tigers in 2008. He was third in rushing touchdowns during a solid 8-4 season that ended with a second-round playoff loss to Breaux Bridge.
"Josh was just an excellent player and person," Neville head coach Mickey McCarty said. "Louisiana Tech is getting a great player who can help their team. His smile is contagious and he is a good student-athlete as well."
La. Tech picked up steam in football recruiting among local high school stars following a 8-5 season in which they ended by winning the Independence Bowl in Shreveport over Northern Illinois.
Truman Van Veckhoven, a two-sport all-district selection, will continue his baseball career at LSU-Eunice.
Van Veckhoven was a three-year starter at wide receiver on the football team and was a starting outfielder in just as many seasons for the Tigers baseball program.
The senior is expected to be a leading offensive threat as well as top defensive glove for the Tigers as they compete for the Class 4A state championship in 2009.
Neville begins their baseball season Feb. 23 when they visit the West Monroe Rebels at Aulds Memorial Field.
