Catholic High School in Baton Rouge has a long history of turning out great running backs that not only excelled in college but made it all the way to the NFL

The list includes Warrick Dunn (Class of 1993) and Travis Minor (’97), both of which continued on to Florida State. Clyde Edwards-Helaire (’17) and Derrius Guice (’15) starred at LSU.

Corey Singleton, Jr. may not be in the class of his predecessors but the 5-foot-11, 200 pounder had declared for Army West Point over Navy, Air Force and McNeese State. He is the 19th pledge for the Cadets in their ’22 class.

Singleton compiled 662 yards and seven scores with a healthy 9.6 yards per carry average for the 2020 state champion Bears. Possessing 4.5 speed, he blows through a hole, runs away from pursuit and recognizes an opening quickly Singleton is a no frills runner who fits the Army option scheme.

Very humble and soft spoken, he holds a 3.5 GPA.
