West Monroe High School safety Brooks Miller is a 3 star defensive player and he’s only recently been jumping on the radar of Power 5 schools.
The Baylor football coaches saw his speed and enthusiasm for the game at one of their camps two weeks ago and offered him a scholarship.
Miller will enter his season season in August, and his Rebels will be in Shreveport September 13 to take on the Yellow Jackets’ from Byrd.
Friday September 13th. West Monroe Rebels (West Monroe, La.) vs. C.E. Byrd Yellow Jackets (Shreveport, La.) – 5:30 p.m.
In the first game of BOTB IX, it’s a matchup of old rivals when the West Monroe Rebels clash with the Byrd Yellow Jackets. The Rebels posted an impressive 14-1 record in 2018, with their only blemish coming in a 27-24 loss to the Zachary Broncos in the LHSAA Class 5A State Championship. West Monroe had shut out its first four playoff opponents en route to the appearance in the championship game. In 2018, the Byrd Yellow Jackets returned to their winning ways of the past. The Yellow Jackets went 7-3 in 2018, losing to the Evangel Eagles in the second round. Byrd coach Mike Suggs, the dean of area coaches, will be in his 22nd season as the Yellow Jackets’ head man.
