2019 FOX 7 Football Field Trip: LBJ

LBJ High School football coach Jahmal Fenner's speedy squad has college bound talent all over the field and that includes a 2021 Alabama commit who, according to the school's sports information department, would be the first Austinite ever to play for the Crimson Tide.

Latrell McCutchin goes into his junior season rated as one of the top cornerbacks in the nation.

Over the summer, McCutchin committed to play college ball for Alabama and coaching legend Nick Saban.

"I mean he's (Saban) the GOAT. It's just a mindset. I like winning. He wins," McCutchin says.

With Alabama in his future, the 6'1" and 175 pound two way threat McCutchin will play his next two high school seasons under a massive spotlight.

"With me, football is my life so I deleted all of social media off my phone once the season started. So it's not too hard for me to stay focused because I love the game and I want to get better every day," McCutchin says.

McCutchin isn't the only talented Jaguar.

Junior receiver Andrew Mukuba's getting Division 1 offers from schools like Arkansas and Arizona while Sean Fresch will head to Rice after his senior year.

Fresch and the rest of the team feel they're ready for the new season.

"What LBJ has been specialized to do is speed. We're really fast so when we get on the field nobody can touch us," Fresch says.

Mix all that speed with an up tempo offense which Lamael Hicks says is "...crazy. I don't think anybody in our district or maybe even Texas can keep up with our tempo" and it looks like the Jaguars have a realistic chance at a district title and maybe even more.

The Austin American-Stateman's Thomas Jones and Rick Cantu share their thoughts on LBJ and what to look out for from the team.
