SAINT JAMES, La. — Lowell Narcisse has long been a household name — at least in the River Parishes of Louisiana.
The 4-star dual-threat quarterback already boasts a handful of records and holds even more potential than words can give credence to, but his junior and senior seasons at St. James (La.) High School have been hamstrung by ACL tears in each of his knees.
The first cost Narcisse the majority of his junior season, but he marched back to lead his team to the Louisiana Class 3A state championship game. The second occurred in the final tune-up before his senior season, meaning he would never see the field again as a high school football player.
Next up for Narcisse is a career at LSU. Narcisse committed to the Tigers in the spring to remain close to his family and lead his in-state team back to the promised land.
After suffering two torn ACLs, Narcisse now carries the weight of even more heading into his college football career. He’s always been a prodigy and is anxious to live up to the weight that’s been put on his shoulders.
