This past weekend, 4 Ringgold High School football players took part in the widely recognized “best lineman camp” in the nation at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, LA. Over 650 high school football lineman were there in attendance.
Andre Ivory, Nicholas Plunkett, Jyshawn Marshall and Austin Mingo had the opportunity on day 1 to hear NFL Hall of Famer Kevin Mawae speak to the young men about the importance of dedication and technique. The Ringgold football players were privileged to be taught by some of the best minds in the game of high school, college, and NFL football.
“The 4 horseman,” effectually called at the camp, were given multiple compliments on their hard work and attention to detail. Coach Shon Trent said, “I’m so proud of these young men and how they represented Ringgold High School.”
Lastly, as we were driving back from the camp we were told that 2 of the players, Jyshawn Marshall scored a 23 on his ACT while Nicholas Plunkett posted a 24. We try to instill to our kids that without good grades there is no sports!
Now southern Louisiana knows about the Ringgold “GOLDSTANDARD!”
