Acadiana One Game Away from State Championship Game

Acadiana One Game Away from State Championship Game

Posted: Dec 16, 2020 6:40 AM

It is the state semifinals and the last home game of the year for the Acadiana. a win against Destrehan puts the Rams in the state title game. Acadiana beat the Wildcats last year in the state title game 8-3. Acadiana head coach Matt McCullough says losing to Catholic Baton Rouge earlier this year refocused his team to see mistakes matter even more in big games.


"We just have to continue to work and continue to get better," McCullough said. "Practice is really important having a good week because we are playing another good football team this week and it is going to be another challenge."


"Play fast and play physical and get off the ball on offense and keep our mindset on the game," linebacker Caleb Arceneaux explained as some of the keys for victory.


Only one touchdown was scored in the state title game last year so being able to stay on the field on offense is important.


"That's absolutely paramount in a game of this magnitude," Destrehan head coach Marcus Scott said. "You have to be able to sustain drives and even if you do have to punt you have to be able to flip field positions."

Kickoff for the state semifinals is Friday at 7pm at Acadiana. The winner plays in the state title game at Northwestern State on December 30th at 6pm.
