TAMPA, Fla. - Whatever is needed, running back Louis Bonnet gets the job done.
The Freedom High School runner even played a little fullback this past season when his coach needed him. The 6-foot, 189-pounder put together 600 rushing yards, averaging over six yards per carry. That has colleges taking a look at him and his stock rising this spring.
"I'm getting letters from schools like Auburn, LSU, Florida, and a couple of schools like that," Bonnet said. "Right now, I like Auburn quite a bit. I just like their running backs and they always produce good ones every year.
"Hopefully I could maybe go up there to be one of those top running backs."
Florida gave him an invitation to the junior day and Bonnet says that their interest makes him want to take a trip there.
"They wanted me to come for their junior day even though I'm not sure I can make it," Bonnet said. "I'm going to try and get down there at some point to check them out. I like them a lot. I think they're the only school in the SEC that runs the option, so I really like that."
Bonnet says this year he wants to continue to help the team inch closer to the state title and make a big explosion in his stats.
"I just want to break over 1,500 yards and continue with no fumbles like last season," Bonnet said. "I'm more of a power running back and I'm not a selfish player. If I have to get in there and just block, I'll do that too."
