BATON ROUGE, LA — For the first time ever Dutchtown high school will have a former football player selected in the NFL draft.
But, that's not all the history that will be made.
Former Griffins Eric Reid and Eddie Lacy will also be the first set of high school teammates at the draft in the same year.
"We are proud to be a small part of their journey," Dutchtown head football coach Benny Saia said.
Reid played three seasons at safety for LSU. Lacy, a running back, won two national titles with Alabama.
The first round of the 2013 NFL Draft begins Thursday. Rounds two and three will be Friday. The remaining three rounds will be on Saturday.
