BATON ROUGE, La. -- Like most high school football players in Louisiana, 2014 tight end prospect Jacory Washington (Westlake, La./Westlake) has had to wait an extra week for his high school season to start.

Washington's Westlake team is based near Lake Charles, La., mostly out of the way of Hurricane Isaac's path through Louisiana. But Westlake's Week 1 opponent, Eleanor McMain, is based in New Orleans. The Warriors, like so many other teams in the state, had their opener canceled.

Washington is one of the top juniors in the state, with interest coming from the likes of Alabama, Texas A&M and obviously the home state school, LSU. He took the opportunity from the cancellation to drive to Baton Rouge for LSU's home opener against North Texas. The trip to Tiger Stadium is just a two-hour drive from Lake Charles -- one Washington said he'd have likely made even with a game Friday. But the bye week made for an eventful trip to campus.
