Travel Dunmiles and Jontrell Lockett

Treval Dunmiles
Hahnville - Position FB

Tiger senior Treval Dunmiles made a huge sacrifice late last month when he was asked to move to fullback after an injury to starter Mike Ford. Dunmiles has been a star linebacker for the Tigers, but has wasted little time making an impact on the offensive side of the ball. Aside from being what his head  coach calls a “blocking machine,” Dunmiles also scored two important touchdowns to lead his team to a victory over West Jefferson. What makes Dunmiles success even more amazing is that his right leg was run over by a car less than three months ago.

Jontrell Lockett
Hahnville - Positon DL

Hahnville senior Jontrell Lockett has made a huge impact on the Tiger defensive line this season. Though Lockett has been named player of the week before, he might have had his best game last week in his team’s 35-31 win over West Jefferson in the first round of the playoffs. Lockett, who spent almost as much time in the backfield as the Buccaneers quarterback, forced two huge fumbles and recovered one of them. The last fumble was especially important because it allowed the Tigers to jump out to a 14 point lead over West Jeff.
