Tappan Getting Much Respect

Tappan Getting Much Respect

Last Season was a very tough year for the Desoto Central Jaguars. They finished the season 0-11 and had very little to get excited about. Fast forward to this season and the Jaguars are off to a 3-0 start and are winning games with their defense. A big change has been the emergence of CB Ricky Tappan. The 5ft9 175lb Tappan has turned into a shutdown corner. The Cajunredzone talks with Tappan.

Last Season was a very tough year for the Desoto Central Jaguars. They finished the season 0-11 and had very little to get excited about. Fast forward to this season and the Jaguars are off to a 3-0 start and are winning games with their defense. A big change has been the emergence of CB Ricky Tappan. The 5ft 9 175lb Tappan has turned into a shutdown corner. The Cajunredzone Catches up with Tappan and talks recruiting.

A big reason for the Jaguars turn around has been the play of their Defense. Tappan has gained a reputation as a shutdown corner and teams are not willing to test him much.

"We are off to a 3-0 start. Thats such a big improvement from last year. We have beaten Lewisburg, Potts Camp, and last week we beat Lake Cormorant. That was a bigtime win for us and our confidence. Our defense is really playing well. I have some tackles, but teams are not throwing the ball my way anymore. I guess thats a good thing."

Recruiting has been pretty steady for Tappan. He is hearing from the same schools with one exception.

"I am still hearing from UL, Arkansas State, UT-Martin, and now Alabama State is on me pretty good. Its been steady and the same. I am just blessed that teams are looking at me."

Concerning the Cajuns, they have had a steady lead for Tappan for quite a while now. An offer would be huge for Tappan, but right now he is focused in another area.

"I call and talk to Coach Hud at least once a week. He keeps telling me he wants to see me down in Lafayette. I plan on going down their for a game. My dad has figured all that out, and I hope thats when I get my offer. But right now I am totally devoted to my team and getting us into the playoffs. Thats my main focus right now."
