Central Catholic High School senior Lloyd Grogan has concluded his basketball career at the Morgan City school just as he started it five years ago as an eighth grader: on top.
The Eagles’ standout recently picked up his fifth consecutive District 8-1A Most Valuable Player award when the district’s coaches selected the all-district team.
Grogan, a first-team selection, finished his senior season with averages per game of 26.5 points, 11.5 rebounds and three blocks.
CCHS coach Ree Case was honored as the district’s Coach of the Year after he led the Eagles to an 8-0 mark in league play.
Grogan was joined on the first team by teammates, juniors Dontrell Brown and Josh Singleton. Brown averaged 20.2 ppg, 7.3 rpg and 5.6 assists per game, while Singleton averaged 12.2 ppg and 4.1 apg.
The Eagles’ trio made up three of the five slots on the all-district first team. They were joined by junior Trevor Derouen of Gueydan, who averaged 16.3 ppg, 10.4 rpg and 4.3 apg, and Emile Chassion of Vermilion Catholic, who finished with averages of 25.4 ppg and 7.2 rpg.
CCHS also had two players named to the second team, sophomores Nick Case and Tyler Hoffpauir. Both averaged nearly identical numbers as Case tallied 10.2 ppg and 3.5 rpg, while Hoffpauir put up 10.1 ppg and 3.5 rpg.
Other second team selections included seniors, Chase Businelle of Hanson (9.3 ppg, 4.1 apg and 3.6 steals per game), Blair Landry of Vermilion Catholic (8.3 ppg and 7.4 rpg) and Jazz Dalcourt of Ascension Episcopal (8.3 ppg).
CCHS’ honorable mention selections were senior Jovon Johnson, junior Lamar Grogan and sophomore Brent Green.
Joining them on the squad were Gueydan’s Marquis Victoria and Quintan Martin, Hanson’s Austin Bodin and Taylor Barilleaux, VC’s Joey Faulk and Reiss Hebert and Ascension Episcopal’s Kane Fontenot.
