Neal Michael Theriot Jr., a 2015 Berwick High School graduate, was awarded one of 81 Dixie Youth Baseball scholarships given out nationally. The $2,000 award is open to anyone who at one time during a baseball career played in a
Dixie Youth baseball league. Of the 1,340 scholarships that have been given since 1961, Louisiana has been represented by 125 recipients. Of that total, Theriot is the area’s fourth recipient and second in as many years. Other scholarship winners include the late John Guarisco of Morgan City in
1968, Josh Bailey of Patterson in 2008 and Bobby Boudreaux of Berwick in 2014. Above, Theriot receives his award from Louisiana District 3 Dixie Youth Baseball Director Seth Thomas during a closing baseball ceremony for St.
