  • Bastrop High’s Rueben Randle has been named to Parade Magazine’s 46th annual All-America High School football team.
    Randle, who spent the majority of his high school career at wide receiver before playing quarterback as a senior, is listed on the team as an all-purpose player. He is rated as the No. 1 wide receiver prospect in the nation by rivals.com.
    This marks the third straight year that the Rams have been represented on the Parade All-America team. Wide receiver DeAngelo Benton became the school’s first-ever Parade All-American in 2007, while quarterback Randall Mackey made the 2008 squad as an athlete.
    Randle is taking an official visit to LSU this weekend. He is also considering signing with Alabama, Auburn, Oklahoma and Tennessee, with Ole Miss as a longshot.
    Randle is one of three Louisiana standouts named to the team, which also includes Leesville running back Michael Ford and Slidell Northshore lineman Chris Faulk.
    Austin (Texas) Lake Travis quarterback Garrett Gilbert, who has verbally committed to the Texas Longhorns, is Parade’s Player of the Year.
    Selected by coaches, journalists, scouts and recruiters, the entire team consists of 58 players from 25 states.
    Parade Magazine established the nation’s first high school All-America team in 1963.
    Fifteen Parade All-Americans have gone on to win the Heisman Trophy, including Tim Tebow, Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart, Eric Crouch, Chris Weinke, Ron Dayne, Herschel Walker, Charles Woodson, Rashaan Salaam, Marcus Allen, Billy Sims, Earl Campbell, Tony Dorsett, Steve Spurrier and Mike Garrett.
    The Parade 2009 All-America team will appear in the publication’s Sunday issue.
