A local prep football standout has received a scholarship offer from a school in The Lone Star State.

Princeton Malbrue, an outside linebacker, who attends Lafayette Christian Academy, has received an offer from Houston Baptist, a member of the Southland Conference.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Malbrue will enter his junior season when the Knights open up their regular season schedule this weekend, and is scheduled to graduate next spring.

Malbrue has also reportedly been offered by such schools as Louisiana Tech, Cornell, McNeese, and Nicholls St.
