Team Louisiana's 2019 PBR Future Games experience was a great one, as the 2019 group finished the weekend 2-1 with wins over Texas and Arkansas/Kansas. Players up and down the roster made noise and impressions on the hundreds of college coaches in attendance at the event. Over the next few days, Louisiana Scouting Director Trey Sofio and Louisiana Assistant Scouting Director Walt Jones will recap Team Louisiana’s weekend with notes and observations from the prospects in attendance, broken down by position group.
