Livonia ready for first state title
BATON ROUGE - In the days leading up to their state title game in the Superdome, head coach David Brewerton has his team simulating dome conditions at the LSU Indoor Practice Facility.
"That dome turf is going to get warm," Brewerton told his team Wednesday in the huddle. "And make sure you start hydrating now."
It's that state title experience that will come in handy Friday at 8:30pm vs Union Parish.
In fact, Brewerton has winning experience in the Superdome.
The head coach was a part of the Redemptorist Wolves coaching staff that took down John Curtis in the state championship game in 2003 - a feat not easily accomplished against the 26-time winner.
"It's big not only for the town of Livonia...but also for our Parish," the Wildcat coach said of Pointe Coupee Parish.
His top-seeded Wildcats will have their shot at their first-ever 11-man state title in the school's history Friday night against #3 Union Parish.
For more on Livonia, tune in Friday night at 6 & 10.
