High school football in Louisiana is entering week 8 of the season and here is a look at the top…
Landor Leading Rebels Playoff Drive
"There is no doubt they are playing with more confidence now that Jasper Turner is back at quarterback and a few of their defensive players returned from injuries," Landor stated. "When you look at them now and what they look liked at the beginning of the season, Northside is a totally different team now."
District 6-4A consists of schools that are relatively close in proximity to each other and every team is considered a rival. Are district games tougher to play than non-district teams on the schedule?
"There is no doubt about it," said D'Shaie. "You better be ready to play each week because the rivalries between our schools are intense and we have a lot of students from St. Martin Parish. I've played sports against a number of these guys from Northside, Cecilia, Breaux Bridge and St. Martinville when we were in middle school, so we know each other pretty well. And now you add St. Thomas More in the mix with those schools and it really is a tough district."
With this week's preparations, are the Teurlings Rebels ready to play Northside?
"We've been working hard and we know they will be ready to play Friday night," Landor stated. "We'll be ready to play; there is no game you can circle on the schedule and say that should be a win in this district. After we played STM, people were saying they didn't play well and our game against them was a fluke. Then we beat Breaux Bridge the next week and STM losses to Breaux Bridge the next week after that game. You better be ready to play every week in this district and that is what we've focused on each week."
UL host Louisiana-Monroe for the Ragin'Cajuns last home game of the season, will D'Shaie Landor be in attendance?
Yes, I plan on going in with my parents for the game," said D'Shaie. "I've come in by myself and with Dylan Bossier to the other games, but I wanted to come in with my parents to the last home game. We talked about it and we are really looking forward to coming to the game against Louisiana-Monroe and watching the seniors play in their last game in front of the home crowd."
