Louisiana Season Preview and Schedule of Games

Tigers vs. Tigers

The Tigers of Terrebonne and Hahnville opened the delayed 2020 season with impressive victories and hope to be the team advancing to 2-0 after Friday’s District 7-5A matchup.

Terrebonne started the season with a hard-fought 42-34 victory at home over South Terrebonne. The Tigers racked up 393 total yards of offense, with 316 of those yards coming on the ground. If Terrebonne wants to win this game, the defense will need to improve against a Hahnville offense that scored 49 points and nearly 400 yards of offense.

First-year head coach Daniel Luquet began his Hahnville coaching career on Friday night with an impressive 49-0 victory over L.W. Higgins. Luquet was formerly the head coach of Woodlawn High School in Baton Rouge. The Tigers offense outgained Higgins 398-85, and the defense pitched a shutout with two sacks, one interception, and six stops on fourth down.

The Tigers return eight players on offense and expect to see Hahnville throw the football more often with the 37-year-old Luquet at the helm.

Players to Watch 

Terrebonne 5-star defensive tackle Maason Smith (6’5″/297 lbs.) is one of the most sought after recruits in the country. The 6’5″/297 lb. senior is ranked by Rivals as #5 overall recruit in the nation, #1 defensive tackle and #1 in the state of Louisiana.  Smith is currently undecided about where he’ll play college football, but he has offers from just about every top D1 program in the country.

Terrebonne’s 3-star ATH Jaylin Lucas is a player who gives opposing defensive coordinators a lot to worry about. He’s a threat on the ground and as a receiver. In Friday’s game against Terrebonne South, Lucas ended the night with 304 yards rushing/4 TD’s, including a 97-yard touchdown run late in the game to seal the win. He also caught five passes for 77 yards. Lucas is only a junior, but he’s already received an offer from the University of Virginia.

For the Hahnville Tigers, senior QB Andrew Naquin (6’2″/180 lbs.) leads the offense. In his junior season, Naquin threw for 1,328 yards and 12 touchdowns. In Friday’s victory over Higgins, Naquin threw for 146 yards/4 TD’s on 10-of-14 passing. He added an additional 43 yards rushing.

Senior RB Trey LaBranch leads a potent ground attack for Hahnville’s version of the Tigers. In Friday’s win, LaBranch rushed for 188 yards and one touchdown. Wide receiver Troy Kendrick contributed with six receptions for 92 yards. Coach Luquet says LaBranch has big-play potential. “He has the potential to take it to the house every time he touches the ball.”

Shamarr Moses – 6’2″ 190 lbs, Senior, Middle Linebacker. He played outside linebacker last season. He was moved to inside linebacker this season. Coach Luquet says he is a returning starter that understands the defense and what they are trying to do. He is a good tackler who can run with the backs. Coach expects that this will be his breakout year.
