Top 150 Players Shavon Coleman(Left) of Thibodaux and Langston Galloway(right) of Christian Life Highlight the Thibodaux High Tournament
Thibodaux High is hosting their annual Thanksgiving classic starting today Nov 23 - 25 at Thiboduax High school. There is a good group of talent in this event that is headlined by the host Tigers of Thibodaux and the Christian Life Crusaders who are coming off a tournament title at the Ballin on the Red event in Shreveport. Not only did they win the event, they did it in impressive fashion as they defeated 5A Airline, 2A Riverside who is nationally ranked on Rivals.com 100 top teams and 4A Bossier, last year's state runner-up. Thibodaux is coming in short-handed with their football kids still on the gridiron. They will be relying heavily on top 100 player Shavon Coleman who is averaging close to 30 a game to start the season. Coleman is a smooth guard that can flat score the basketball. For THS to have a chance at winning this event they will need a great showing for Coleman and the role players to play solid defense and limit turnovers. This will be a great tournament this week and I want to wish THS coach Tony Clark good luck this week while he hosts this fine event.
