Louisiana’s rapidly expanding 7-on-7 landscape wasted little time launching into its 2021 routine following the COVID-delayed high school season’s Dec. 30 conclusion.

And the efforts of first-year program Louisiana Elite, the football foray of an established basketball organization in the area, to recruit some notable talent their direction was on display during their tryout/showcase event Jan. 9 at Scotlandville.

A handful of the top performers included:

Aaron Anderson — 5-10, 185 WR — Edna Karr

The electric receiver and recent LSU commitment has all the tools to excel in this setting and at the next level and could and should be a difference-maker for the Louisiana Elite team. He tested receivers deep throughout the event, particularly during one-on-one drills and found his pockets of free space underneath and over the middle to make as many catches as anyone during 7-on-7 drills.

Rickie Collins Jr. — 6-3, 185 QB — Woodlawn (Baton Rouge)

The Panthers' passer doesn't get as much attention as some of his 2023 counterparts around the state, such as Newman's Arch Manning and Zachary's Eli Holstein, or even Denham Springs' Reese Mooney and Scotlandville's Czavian Teasett.
