The Saints were 25th in the NFL in punt returns last year. Ted Ginn Jr and Tommylee Lewis held down that responsibility last year, but neither player did a great job.

Former LSU and Breaux Bridge star Travin Dural has suffered a broken arm, which will hurt his chances of making the team. Dural spent last year on the practice squad and was hoping to secure one of the final spots on the 53-man roster.

Two outstanding high school football prospects from south Louisiana have committed to Georgia. One of them is Destrehan’s John Emery, who is considered one of the top running backs in the country. Four-star wide receiver Makiya Tongue from University High in Baton Rouge has also committed to the Bulldogs.

UL Lafayette football received three verbal commitments over the weekend, includine one from New Iberia’s Ja’Braylon Spencer, who is one of the top linebackers in Acadiana. West Monroe defensive lineman Dalvin Hutchinson and Southern Lab Tyler Guidry also committed to the Cajuns.

Former West Monroe linebacker John Bailey Gullat has reportedly transferred to ULM. The All-Stater originally signed with Army and he’ll be eligible to play immediately for the Warhawls. Gullat ranks number one at West Monroe for tackles over a prep career.
