From his primary position of wide receiver, the 5-10 senior had 23 receptions for 318 yards and two touchdowns. Doucette also rushed eight times for 85 yards and a score. While those numbers are respectable, the Cougar spark plug did his real damage on special teams, averaging 21 yards every time he returned a kick. Out of 13 kickoff returns his senior year, Doucette took two to the house for touchdowns.
At this time the Cougar hasn't committed to play at the next level, but that could be changing real soon. Congratulations Marquise Doucette, the VYPE SETX Fan's Choice Football Player of The Year!
