Southern Offers Acadiana’s Thaos Figaro
A local prep football standout has been extended an offer by a school in the Southwestern Athletic Conference.
Thaos Figaro, who currently attends Acadiana High School, shared on social media last Friday that has been offered by Southern.
Earlier this month, Figaro shared that another SWAC school, Alcorn St., had extended him an offer.
In May, Figaro was offered by two Southland Conference schools, Northwestern St. and Nicholls St., as well as Lenoir-Rhyne University, a Division II school located in Hickory, North Carolina.
In early April, Figaro was offered by Harding University, another Division II school located in Searcy, Arkansas.
Division II schools do not offer athletic scholarships, but they do offer spots on their respective rosters.
In late-April, Figaro was offered by Southeastern Louisiana and Stetson.
A 6-foot-2, 225-pound defensive end/outside linebacker, Figaro is the son of former Lafayette High/Notre Dame/NFL linebacker Cedric Figaro, the current head coach at Lafayette High.
Figaro is scheduled to graduate in the spring of 2021.
