Stephen Burks III was named District 2-1A MVP after leading the Lincoln Prep Panthers in scoring as they made it to a third-year straight state tournament. Burks finished his last season with 10-straight double-doubles, including 18 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists in the semifinals on March 6th, against Crescent City. His selection as the District 2-1A MVP gives Lincoln Prep the distinction for the second-year straight, after Bralyn Mayfield won it for the 2022-2023 season.

Along with Burks, Lincoln Prep guards Amarjae Young and Joseph Spann ("Trey") were named to the first team. Trumarion Smith, who led LPS in charges and assists, as well as an assist-to-turnover ratio of 4-to-1, was named to second team. Devin Burton and Zion Hicks received honorable mention by district coaches.

      Lincoln Preparatory School faces a big game and a tough challenge as Panthers play at Ouachita Christian Thursday night.

      OCS stands at 8-1 overall and 3-0 District 2-1A while the Panthers are 3-6 and 1-2 in district play. 

      The Eagles also stand at No. 1 in the Louisiana Sports Writers Association Class 1A football polls and third in GeauxPreps.com’s Division IV Select School Power Ratings.

      Lincoln Prep is coming off its most disappointing game of the week in last week’s 55-0 loss at Cedar Creek. Cedar Creek held the Panthers to 58 yards of offense and didn’t allow Lincoln Prep  to get its initial of two total first downs until there were only five minutes remaining in the contest.

      Panthers coach Glen Hall said he team had turned in a solid week of practice before disappearing on the field from the opening kickoff against the Cougars.

      Now he’s working on not letting that happen again this week at OCS.

      “We’ve had good practices. We don’t really have bad practices. That’s why I get so surprised when that doesn’t carry over to the games. “

      “The players are out there working hard,” Hall said. “They’re enthusiastic. Then it just disappears come game time. We got a lot done. We did mainly defense (Monday) and worked on offense (Tuesday). The team was focused. We just have to find a way to keep that same attitude when an actual game kicks off.”

      Lincoln Prep currently stands at No. 24 in GeauxPreps.com’s Division IV Select School Power Ratings, which would get them into the playoffs at this point.

      “Playing a team as good and highly-ranked like OCS, hopefully even if we lose it won’t hurt us that much,” Hall said. “I don’t think we would drop. What we need is for somebody we played to win a game and with them playing River Oaks, we can hopefully at least end up 23rd. They (River Oaks) jumped up over us, but barely.”

      River Oaks is playing undefeated Glenbrook on Thursday, so if the Mustangs can’t pull off a stunning upset, that match-up should play out in Lincoln Prep’s favor.

      “If the teams that beat us all win, we should be in,” Hall said. “And in all honesty, I’d love to be in that 23rd spot,” Hall said. “That might get us another shot at St. Frederick.”

      OCS is coming off a 49-18 win over Mississippi’s West Marion High School. But West Marion trailed only 21-12 at halftime of that contest, and reviewing film Hall saw some things that make him believe that if he can get his Panthers to focus from the get-go, they might be able to at least push the Eagles on Thursday.

      “They played a team last week that kind of hung with them for a while,” Hall said. “That team ran quick slants, they ran the ball inside on them, they played offense a lot like we do, and it worked for a little while.

      “OCS had a fight on their hands. They actually didn’t pull away until midway through the third quarter after they ran a punt return back.”

      Hall said he believes his Panthers won’t back down.

      “I was up until 2:30 (Tuesday) morning looking at film and game planning,” Hall said. “OCS is a great team. But anybody can be beaten on a given night. I’m going in there trying to win.

      “We’re going to go out guns blazing. And I’m sure (OCS coach Steven Fitzhugh) is telling his team that we’re going to be going in there with nothing to lose, so he’ll have his team motivated.”

      Playing a perennial powerhouse won’t be anything new for the Panthers, who last year played in the same district as Haynesville and defending Class 1A nonselect school champion Homer among others

      “Last year we played district games against Calvary (Baptist), Haynesville and Homer,” Hall said. “My older guys have played in games like this before. But to be honest, I don’t really know how they’ll react against OCS.

      “I don’t understand why my older guys haven’t stepped up more this season. It’s a mental thing. So all we can do is work hard to prepare and hope that they come out with that same attitude they’ve shown in practices and that they’ll be ready to go. They’ve capable. But they have to want it. That’s what I keep on preaching.”

      Hall said for those seniors Panthers, the time is now.

      “It’s now or never,” Hall said. “I told them (Monday), ‘Look, I’m coming to work every day. I’m watching film until late every night like I always do, because I expect them to go in there and produce. I need them to execute. I need them to work at it like I do. I need them to want it like I do and like all the coaches do.

      “Last week, Cedar Creek’s main thing was that they took away (Panthers receiver/quarterback and running back) Brandon Heard. They were all over him. So I tried to use him as a decoy and started motioning him to the back side. But my other receivers and backs didn’t step up and take advantage of that.”

      Hall hopes he can get into his players’ heads and pull out a strong performance against OCS.

      “I called one of our key seniors in today and asked him how he wants to be remembered,” Hall said. “Because out of the 12 or 13 seniors we have, most of them will never play another down of football again.

      “All of our seniors need to figure out how they want to be remembered, because it’s now or never.”

      Sister, Sisterrrrrrr. Talk about a two-way twister. Big congratulations is in order for Lincoln Prep's Lady Panthers Twin basketball stars Jesse and Jade Anderson(@_50.shades) Today the entire school witnessed them reveal that they will continue their basketball career in Jackson, Tennessee at Lane College.

      When asked why they chose Lane, their reply was simple "It felt like home." The twins helped lead the Lady Panthers to a winning season and a quarterfinal appearance. Lane is getting 2 athletic guards that you don't wanna defend 1 on 1 or leave open.

      Jesse finished the season averaging 15 pts and shooting 42% from the Trey. Jade finished averaging 8 pts, 7 reb, 7 ast, and 3 stl a game.

      3 times a charm as the Twins are the 3rd to sign an athletic scholarship this school year with many more to follow. Twins we over at Grambition congratulate you and love ya.

      If you were to contact current Lincoln Prep Head Coach Antonio Hudson to talk about his current team he would tell you that everyone is special. And that is true because Lincoln Prep plays some basketball. What you might not expect is for him to mention is a sophomore guard that floats between 5’11 and 6’0 that plays like he is 6’11. That sophomore is Chanse Robinson.


      “The first time I saw Chanse, I saw a tough athlete with unlimited potential. He is one of the hardest playing players that I have ever seen. I knew with some tweaking of his skills and him learning how to play the game he would be something special.” -Coach Hudson

       Robinson started raising eyebrows with his aggressive nature to get to the basket for a layup or a dunk all last year during his freshman campaign. Robinson finished the season averaging 17 points and 10 rebounds a game. His performance was good enough to get the attention of one of the top AAU programs in the state.  He excelled at AAU and it helped propel him to some top rankings in the state and country. Colleges are looking and one has already offered before the start of his sophomore year. 

      (Pictured) Chanse Robinson has been playing above the rim since he got to high school.         

      Robinson hasn’t taken anything for granted since being considered “The Man” of this year’s Lincoln Prep basketball team. “I got off to a good start but we are still trying to figure some things out and get everyone on the same page” Robinson stated. “We got off to slow start early in the season but it is my responsibility as the point guard and leader to get everyone involved and making plays. We have got to grind every day and keep pushing.”

      Robinson, 16, knew with the departure of some key seniors from last year’s semi-final team that he would have to grow up pretty fast on the court.

      “I knew going into the off-season after my freshmen year that teams were going to be focused on stopping me. So I prepared myself and that is how I train” Robinson stated. And it shows because through 17 games Robinson’s stat line looks something like this… 26 points, 12.5 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals and 1 block a game. His season high is 40 points as well as having 4-30+ point games already this season.

      “His skill set has come a long way. He has always been able to penetrate and finish around the rim but if you got a chance to watch us play this year, he is shooting better and making plays. He still has a long way to go but he puts in the time to get better every day.” -Coach Hudson on Robinson’s performance so far this season. 

       “Coach Hudson pushes me every day in practice to be the best which mentally makes the games easy to me most of time. It really gets me going. The things he tells me it works I just try to do my part.” Robinson stated.

      Robinson does not plan on stopping his quest to lead his team to a district title and another Great 48 appearance. If you have not had a chance to see the kid play in person you need to check him out. 

      When asked if he thinks Robinson will be one of the greats to come through Grambling, Coach Hudson had this to say, “Yes I do think he will be one of the greats when it is all said and done. At least he has the potential to be. If he continues to work like he does and strive for greatness, I don’t see why he wouldn’t be.” 

      We over at Grambition wish the best for Chanse Robinson and the Lincoln Prep Panthers we will continue to support and cheer them on every game. #GRAMbition

      Robinson makes sure to give all praises to God for his God-given ability.
