A local football player has claimed one of the nation's top honors for home school athletes.
Russell Broussard of the Acadiana Home School Commandos has been named the 2013 National Player of the Year by the National Home School Football Championship Series. Broussard passed for more than 1,100 yards and rushed for more than 1,000 yards during the season.
The Commandos, who finished the regular season with a 6-4 record, will take part in next week's national home school tournament in Panama City, Florida.
