Three Eagles earn honorable mention LSWA Class 1A All-State honors

The Central Catholic Eagles had three honorable mention Louisiana Sports Writers Association Class 1A All-State Boys Basketball Team selections.
Central Catholic seniors Brooks Thomas and Elijah Swan and freshman D.J. Lewis were chosen.
Thomas had district per-game averages of 17.8 points and 3.5 assists.
“Brooks was our leading scorer, made first-team all-district,” Central Catholic Coach Ree Case said. “Just had a great senior year. Really improved from last year.”
Swan averaged 15.8 points and 5.2 rebounds in league play.
“Elijah had a great season, made first-team all-district, was our second-leading scorer,” Case said. “(He) did a great job the whole year.”
Lewis had per-game district averages of 13.2 points, 10.4 rebounds and 3.1 blocks.
“I was really excited about D.J.’s (selection),” Case said. “He averaged a double-double. You don’t normally see a guy that makes second-team all-district make honorable mention all-state, but he had a great playoff run and a great semifinal game where he had 18 (points) and 14 (rebounds).”
Chanse Robinson of Lincoln Prep was named Outstanding Player, while Apphia Jordan of Class 1A state champion North Central is Coach of the Year.
Other representatives from District 7-1A, which Central Catholic competes in, that made the all-state team were Terrence Jones of Lafayette Christian Academy (second team) and Javian Howard of Lafayette Christian (honorable mention).
