Three of the Lafayette Area's Best Headed to Baton Rouge Community College

Foster in 2008 while  at Christian Life
Former Christian Life coach Todd Foster continues to get off to a fast start in building the Baton Rouge Community College's men's basketball program.

Foster is expected to sign arguably three of the top five players in the Acadiana area in first-team All-Acadiana selections Xavier Blackburn of St. Thomas More, Jacoby Colbert of Westgate and Keelon Lee of Abbeville on Wednesday.

Colbert was honored as the All-Acadiana Most Valuable Player with Blackburn being the runner-up to that award. Colbert and Blackburn were both second-team All-State selections on the Class 5A All-State team, while Lee was a first-team All-State selection on the Class 3A team.

Louisiana Basketball Report's Assessment on each player:
Jacoby Colbert- Westgate High School 6'3" Guard
District 4-5A MVP and All-Acadiana MVP
2nd Team 5A All-State 21 ppg. 5.5 rpg 3.6 apg
  • Colbert is a quick, athletic wing that can handle the ball and has great range. One of the top shooters in the Lafayette area and has developed as a player each year he has been at Westgate. Colbert was dual-sport athlete and was also a star on the Westgate football team

Keelon Lee- Abbeville High School 6'7" Forward
District 5-3A MVP and All-Acadiana 1st Team
1st Team 3A All-State 17.2 ppg. 10 rpg
  • A physical athletic post that beat you with athleticism, speed, quickness or just pure toughness. Lee is still a little raw offensively but can finish at or above the rim with ease. Very good shot blocker and defensive rebounder, Lee is a versatile big that can step out to hit an occasional jumper.

Xavier Blackburn- St.Thomas More 6'4" Guard/Forward
District 4-5A 1st Team and All-Acadiana First Team
2nd Team 5A All-State 17.8 ppg. 8 rpg.
  • Blackburn is combo type player. A mixture of a wing and a forward. Blackburn has good enough handles to be a wing but has more natural skill on the low block as a post. A kid with a developing skill-set that once he gets in the gym with Coach Foster could be a heck of a player. A hard-worker that is coming from a great program and legendary coach in Danny Broussard
