Trio of CCHS Eagles earns Class 1A All-State recognition

A trio of Central Catholic High School senior football players earned Louisiana Sports Writers Association Class 1A All-State honorable mention honors.
Central Catholic running back Davidyione Bias, offensive lineman Michael-Anthony Hill and linebacker Nathan Hebb each were honored.
Bias finished his senior season with 193 carries for 1,221 yards and 18 touchdowns.
“He was pretty much the focal point of our offense,” Central Catholic coach Tommy Minton said. “We were a run-heavy team, and he was pretty much the go-to guy. He doubled up the next guy in the number of carries, so he was a workhorse for us. He gave us some explosive plays during the year, and he gave us some hard-earned yards between the tackles. … The best compliment you could give is our offense ran through him.”
Hill helped pave the way for many of Bias’ yards.
“Michael-Anthony was a four-year starter for us,” Minton said. “He started as a freshman, so that’s pretty uncommon. He’s been a three-year all-district player.”
Minton said Hill “set all of our protections in the pass game, also.”
On defense, Hebb had 86 total tackles, two sacks, four tackles for loss, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries
“Nathan was a two-way player for us,” Minton said. “He played just about every down in every football game. He played H-back on offense. He played linebacker on defense, and he was our defensive leader. You could find him around the football pretty much every play. (He is) a physical football player.”
As for the all-state individual awards, junior quarterback Hunter Herring of Division IV state champion Ouachita Christian is the Offensive Most Valuable Player, while senior linebacker Collin Chatman of Class 1A semifinalist Oberlin is the Defensive Most Valuable Player. David Simoneaux of Division IV runner-up Catholic-Pointe Coupee is the Coach of the Year.
Other members of District 7-1A, which Central Catholic competes in, to make the squad were Vermilion Catholic linebacker Andre Leblanc (first-team), Vermilion Catholic’s Saul Dartez (honorable mention), Vermilion Catholic’s Colin Mier (honorable mention), Vermilion Catholic’s Drew Lege (honorable mention) and Vermilion Catholic’s Moe Maxile (honorable mention).
