LSU football lands commitment from Breaux Bridge wide receiver Kavahra Holmes
BATON Rouge – The LSU football team landed its 13th commitment for the 2012 recruiting class when wide receiver Kavahra Holmes pledged to become a Tiger.
Holmes, who is 6-feet-1 and 180 pounds, is the second Breaux Bridge wide out to commit, joining teammate Travin Dural. He was impressive in an LSU camp on Monday and invited back Tuesday for a formal scholarship offer. He jumped at the chance and committed right away.
It’s always important to keep all the home-grown talent from da bayou country inside the state of Louisiana. It translates to more team loyalty, more commitment, and pride. It even helps the game attendance because friends and family show up to see “da boy do good”. A player works harder when his friends and family are watching, not to mention girls from his home town.
It makes it even better that he grew up around LSU after he became three years old and even lived in Baton Rouge for a while. He’s driven past the school before, and smelled the excitement. He’s watched the games, felt the electricity around him as big plays were made and football legends were born.
That’s the kind of kid LSU needs. Even better, he adds more offense to an already potent team. You can never have too much offense. A great defense is wonderful to have, because you don’t have to work as hard to catch up when you get behind.
BUT… Points win the game every time.
