Destrehan Wildcats: All-District 1st Team
In 2011, Destrehan's offense went as far as senior running back Kevin Smith could carry it. Smith, who also played defense, rushed for 808 yards on 137 attempts, which equates to 5.8 yards per carry. Smith also scored nine touchdowns for the Wildcats.
When running back Kevin Smith broke through the line, many of his big carries were behind junior offensive lineman Noland Sharpe. The 6'2, 245-pound lineman not only paved the way for Smith on numerous carries, but also kept defenders off the back of his quarterback.
Destrehan senior defensive tackle Dereck Robinson was his team's primary run stopper, recording 64 solo tackles and nine assists. Robinson also got into the backfield on a regular basis, finishing the regular season with 23 tackles for loss and five sacks. He also caused four fumbles and recovered two.
Destrehan senior kicker/punter Daniel Cimino was a busy man in 2011. Cimino punted 42 times for the Wildcats for a 38.1 average. He also connected on 20 extra points and nailed five field goals for the Wildcats.
Destrehan senior defensive back Spencer Bentley has been a three-year starter for the Wildcats, and wrapped up his final high school season with some impressive stats. Bentley finished the year with 43 solo tackles, 21 assists, two tackles for loss, two fumble recoveries and a caused fumble.
