Backup Shines for Southside

Gavin Menard

Posted: Nov 11, 2020 6:39 AM

Lafayette, LA (KADN) -- Junior Gavin Menard is on the top of the depth chart after starter Dylan Monette got broke his arm for the second time. He didn't envision this would be his role at the start of the season.


"All I did was write down the plays and make sure that Dylan was recovered from his broken arm," Gavin said. "I was the JV starter. The backup."


Gavin is not as mobile as Dylan but he brings alot of charisma to the table.


"I play with alot of emotion to the table," Gavin said. "You'll see me jumping around screaming. That's going to be one of my strong suits bringing energy to the team."


"He takes the good and the bad about the same," Southside head football Coach Josh Fontenot said. "Young quarterbacks with inexperience bad plays it would get to them. He doesn't do that."


Dylan Monette is still around at practices and games as a resource if he needs help.


"In typical Dylan fashion he's been great," Josh Fontenot said. "He's been right there support everybody. Gavin has been awesome. He came in quickly in the Sulphur game and he didn't have time to think about much."


"Just want to make sure to keep myself composed and make sure the seniors lead us the rest of the way," Gavin said.
The Sharks take on Comeaux Thursday night at 7pm at Teurlings Catholic high school.
