A pair of quality prep quarterbacks are taking their games to the Louisiana schools Southland Conference.

St. Charles Catholic’s Lloyd Nash committed to Nicholls State, and Cam Arnold of Cypress,Texas pledged to Northwestern State.

Nash will line up at cornerback for the Colonels. The 5-foot-10, 155 pounder is a two-way performer for the Comets with a darting type running style. He usually produces a number of eye-popping plays each game. He has a high football IQ with super athleticism and 4.4 forty speed.

Nash is also an All-State performer on the baseball diamond with a .439 batting average last season including a perfect 37-for-37 in stolen bases, 23 RBIs and eight doubles.

The gridiron highlight last season for Nash was a 322 rushing yard outing against Newman. He totaled 1,785 all purpose yards in 2016 on the way to earning district co-MVP honors last fall.

Nash is the first commitment for the Colonels and head coach Tim Rebowe for the ’18 class.

Arnold (6-1, 200) is a pro style signal caller who considered offers from Incarnate Word and Midwestern State while drawing interest from Rice, Baylor, SMU, North Texas and ULM.

A two-time Academic All District honoree, Arnold tossed for 1,537 yards last season, completing 66 percent of his attempts.

Arnold has a quick release, setting his feet well and showing patience in the pocket. He displays good accuracy with nice placement on his tosses. His favorite player is Tom Brady, the consummate pocket passer.

Like Nash with Nicholls, Arnold is the first pledge for the Demons for the 2018 signing class.
