The Mallards have signed freshman catcher Wes Luquette and sophomore
outfielder Trey Watkins, both hailing from Louisiana State University, for
the 2010 season.
Luquette fields a rather impressive prep resume. As a two-sport athlete in
football and baseball, Wes attended the same high school (Isidore Newman) in
New Orleans as the three Manning brothers (Cooper, Eli, and Peyton), and he
actually broke Peyton's career touchdown passing mark his senior year in
2008. On the diamond, as a junior Luquette was named to the All-District and
All-New Orleans teams and he achieved the same awards a year later, while
also adding an All-State honor his senior year.
