Sports2-a-Days Preview: Lutcher Bulldogs
The Lutcher Bulldogs are in unfamiliar territory after a 5-5 season in 2013.
Head Coach Tim Detillier knows better than most that kind of record doesn't cut it in Lutcher, and he feels the bumps and bruises they felt last season will pay off in 2014 with solid leadership and experience.
The Bulldogs return five players on defense, including their entire defensive line. Coach Detillier says that will be a strength of this years team and the defense will need to carry the load while the offense figures it out.
That offense will be breaking in a new quarterback as Christian Matherne is gone and sophomore Jontre Kirkland is taking over that role. Kirkland is plenty athletic and that improvisation could be both a blessing and a curse come game time according to his coach.
