Class 3A All-State football team
Two Patterson High School football players were selected to the Class 3A Louisiana Sports Writers Association All-State team.
Junior Daylon Charlot was a first-team selection at wide receiver, while senior quarterback Spencer Landry was an honorable mention selection.
Charlot caught 48 passes for 1,055 yards and scored 16 touchdowns this season.
Landry, who was injured on the first series of the Lumberjacks’ Week 10 contest against Franklin, finished the season with 2,523 passing yards, completing 149 of 252 attempts. He threw 30 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
“It’s a great accomplishment,” Patterson coach Tommy Minton said, noting that both contributed to “a large part of our success.”
Minton also said he thought standout sophomore receiver Mykel Jones, who finished with 982 yards receiving and 15 touchdowns, deserved a place on the squad.
“I thought Mykel was just as important to our passing game,” Minton said. “It gave us a threat on each side.”
Minton noted that Jones had more receptions than Charlot, just not as many yards.
Patterson finished the 2013 season with a 10-3 record and advanced to the Class 3A quarterfinals where it fell to Jennings.
The ’Jacks’ season included a 10-game winning streak after starting the season 0-2 with losses to Class 5A opponents Brother Martin and East Ascension.
Patterson won the District 9-3A championship with a 4-0 mark.
The individual awards on the Class 3A All-State team went to Nick Brossette of Division 2 (Class 3A and 4A select schools) state runner-up University High School, Kenny Young of Division 2 state champion John Curtis and John Craig Arceneaux of Church Point. Brossette was named Outstanding Offensive Player; Young, Outstanding Defensive Player; and Arceneaux, Coach of the Year.
District 9-3A also was represented on the team by Rene Thibodaux of E.D. White, an honorable mention selection at place kicker.
