    The Hornets have a lot to live up to this season, following in the footsteps of a 21-win team that won it's first playoff game in 11 years. "I think that we have what it takes to be the best team that Grand Lake has ever seen," said head coach Mark Caldwell. "We don’t really back down from anybody, it’s kind of a quiet confidence." "Our goal is to make it to Burton, it’s the same goal every year," admitted Hornets guard Andre...More >>

    The Lake Arthur boy’s basketball team has come a long way since their one-win season in 2015. The Tigers now hold the 5th spot in the Class 2A power rating after earning wins over Barbe, Acadiana and Breaux Bridge. “We’re worked hard. We won some games we shouldn’t have won and lost some I thought we should have won,” Freddie Thomassee said. “This year one of the reasons why we’re being successful is that those guys took their ...

    "My dad's best attribute was his relationships with people,” Jeptha Wall said. “Especially with young kids. That's probably got him more wins in life than anything." "When I think of coach Wall I get a warm and fuzzy feeling because he left that impression with me," James Marcantel added. "I love him,” Talbert Courville said. “Everybody that knew him, loved him." "He was the man in Welsh," Lance Guidry said. Former We...

    It's been a remarkable year for former Barbe wide receiver Trey Quinn. After transferring from LSU in 2016, Quinn led the SMU Mustangs in nearly every receiving category in 2017, including setting the single-season SMU catch record with 114 receptions. "I think it was a little throwback for everybody to the Barbe days because we were slinging the ball around," said Quinn. "I think that is the best part about football, it's the passing game."

    "It's just been a big ole blur." That about sums up recruiting in 2017. Players are pulled in different directions with schools aiming to get their signature on signing day. Sulphur tight end Christian Trahan, was no exception. The 3-star made his choice this week, signing with the Houston Cougars. "It's really exciting and it's a real stress relief too, because it had been building up with all of the schools," admitted Trahan. "Now I know I can j...More >>

    “I don’t really remember, the whole time I don’t remember,” Pearse Migl said. A magical season for the Welsh Greyhounds, but a not so magical ending of Pearse Migl’s senior season, who went down in the dome with a concussion, but even from the sidelines, he knew his team would bring the bone home. “All my confidence was in them,” Migl said. “It’s not about anyone. There’s no I in team and when I went down I knew anyone coul...

    "I was done, I was happy with where I was,” Eddie Michalko said. “I spent 33 years in Louisiana." Eddie Michalko never thought this day would come. Ironically enough, the East Texas Chambers head girls basketball coach hit his 1000th career win last night at Barbe high school - his alma mater.  "It means I had some really good players,” Michalko added.

    The Welsh Greyhounds are just a step away from a state title appearance. Welsh hosts No. 4 Many on Friday with a trip to the Superdome on the line. Welsh star quarterback Zach Hayes has been on a tear since moving over from wide receiver in 2016. The Greyhounds have only lost a pair of games since. "Everything on our offense is based around him," said Greyhound coach John Richardson. "The fact that he is very intelligent and he is a leader on the field,...More >>
