touchdown were the highest total in the conference. Even in part time duty, White finished 10th in rushing, with a 4.2 yards per carry average.

At 6'7 and 300 pounds, LaBlanc is already showing players and recruiters alike; that he's a major prospect.|

|Justin Mason gets it's done in the classroom and on the field. Mason has had a successful sophomore season at West, being recognized as one of the leagues top cornerbacks.

Justin picked off the pass and ran it back 60 yards for the touchdown.|
|If you attended a Wildcat football game this season, there's a good chance you saw #62 causing havoc. Kameren McNeal quickly made the transition to the next level. McNeal's 4 sacks led the team in this catagory and tackles for loss. McNeal was also tied for 2nd on the team, with 45 knockdowns on the season.|
