Times writers selecting All-Parish team

The Natchitoches Times is doing something a little different this year. All three schools writers have come together and decided to make an All-Parish team. We believe certain players deserve a little more recognition, so we have made a Preseason prediction team, and at the end of the regular season, the Times will announce their official All-Parish team. Without further ado, we announce the Natchitoches Times Preseason All-Parish Team. OFFENSE
