Kevin Faulk has pretty much done it all in the game of football. As a sophomore quarterback at Carencro High, Faulk helped the Golden Bears win the first state football championship in Lafayette Parish history with a memorable 28-27 overtime win over Neville in 1992.
He then earned All-American status over the next two seasons, ending his high school career with 7,612 all-purpose yards and 89 touchdowns, while twice being named as the Class 5A Offensive Most Valuable Player.
Faulk’s college recruitment was the most celebrated of his era, settling on LSU where he helped to resurrect the Tigers’ program.
He earned All-American status at LSU and three times was a first-team All-SEC performer, finishing his career with 4,557 yards – second behind Georgia’s Herschel Walker. His 6,833 all-purpose yards and 53 touchdowns were the best in SEC history until Florida’s Tim Tebow broke it in 2009.
Faulk was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame last year. He returned to LSU as a player development director and coach and his influence was instrumental during the national title season of 2019.
After being drafted in the second round by the New England Patriots in 1999, he helped the franchise win three Super Bowls. Faulk was voted onto the Patriots’ 50th Anniversary team and he’s in the Patriots’ Hall of Fame.
