Landor Leading Rebels Playoff Drive

Landor Leading Rebels Playoff Drive

Teurlings Catholic Senior QB D'Shaie Landor is leading the Rebels towards another 4A payoff appearance this season. The "6-0", 175-pound athlete continues to put up gaudy numbers through the air and on the ground.

Don't look now, but Teurlings Catholic QB D'Shaie Landor the his Rebel teammates have taken care of district rival's Breaux Bridge and Cecilia in consecutive weeks. Landor has passed for 1,688 yards, completing 117-of-203 passes, 8 int and 16 TDs on the season. He has also picked another 600 yards and 6 TDs on the ground to add to those passing numbers. Up next, neighborhood rival Northside High.

"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." Recommended Stories
