You read it here first: Kamron Evans reminds me of the area’s very best

By LEE BRECHEEN, Louisiana Football Magazine

I have seen some athletic, big quarterbacks in my time scouting high school football all over Louisiana since 1990 and an elite pair of Caddo-Bossier products stand above the rest locally because they showed the ability to be dual-threat QB’s at the major college level.

Arnaz Battle from C.E. Byrd High School in Shreveport went to Notre Dame and played a few years in the NFL. He was a dynamic high school player, and after a very good run with the Fighting Irish, cashed some checks but nothing like what is going in the bank for Dak Prescott from Haughton High. There’s really not a description required for him – a record-shattering, extremely successful career at Mississippi State before he surprised a lot of pro experts, but not himself, by rapidly emerging as the franchise QB for the Dallas Cowboys. You know that already.

What may surprise you? I believe next in line could be Kamron Evans from Shreveport’s Huntington High School, a Class 2023 prospect about to begin his senior season in a rising Raiders’ program.

As soon as I saw tape of his junior year, like HHS coach Stephen Dennis told me, Evans clearly has the “IT Factor” and has grown into the QB spot. At 6-3 and 215 carved pounds, with 4.55 speed (in the 40-yard dash) or “football” 4.65 speed, Kam has a cannon arm to go with poise in the pocket. He is a smooth player to watch.

Evans had a special 2021 season throwing for 3,630 yards, completing 62 percent of his passes with 44 touchdowns and only seven picks. Can you say WOW and WOW? Those are exceptional numbers. He broke many Huntington HS records along the way.

Here’s a compelling comment from Coach Dennis: “I could talk for hours about Kamron Evans and his on-the-field accomplishments, however, the thing that stands out to me the most is what he does with his time off the field. Kamron displays true servant-leadership every day, a trait rare in a young man his age. Kam has started a mentoring program for kids. During the school year he would meet on Zoom with elementary students and talk to them about how he has used athletics to keep his mind focused and out of trouble. Kam has also organized two ‘high school field days’ to give the young people his age in the area something safe and fun to do.

“In addition to all this, Kamron has organized a free youth camp that is run and coached by a lot of the top football talent in Shreveport-Bossier coming up on June 14,” said Dennis. “This to me is what makes Kamron truly special. Football will end one day for all athletes, but the relationships Kamron is sowing in the community will truly have a lasting impact. He is the personification of our motto at Huntington to ‘leave it better than you found it.’”

NOTES ON KAMRON EVANS: All-State Class 4A in 2021. His first offers going into his junior year are Northwestern State and ULM, with several more colleges talking to him. He’s staying busy this summer and will attend many on-campus camps in order to compete and prove he is one of the best QB’s in Louisiana, a rising prospect who could be a prize signee in the Class of 2023.

I also want to share my condolences with this young man’s family. Kam recently lost his beloved grandmother.
