Sports2-a-Days Preview: Parkview Baptist Eagles
BATON ROUGE, LA - Physicality on both sides of the football has been something Jay Mayet has preached ever since stepping foot on the Parkview campus. Last year the Eagles dominated district 6-4A, running the table with a 5-0 record and winning their 11th district title.
In 2017 the Eagles triple option attack was run through quarterback Alexander Aucoin who rushed and passed for more than 1,000 yards each.
This year that won't be an option.
The Eagles graduated Aucoin and their stud tailback Connor Joffrion. This spring and summer Mayet has worked out three quarterbacks and expects the battle to extend into fall camp.
"Our offense is a little bit different," said Mayet. You need somebody who can be a game manager and from our standpoint it's a little bit different in not turning the ball over. You know it's somebody whose going to check us into the right play and out of the wrong play. But, it's also somebody who can throw the football and is a good athlete that can run the football."
Colton Jumonville, Roman Mula and transfer Anthony Safford all split reps during the spring, but none created enough separation to land the starting job.
