Marceaux steps in as quarterback for VC and delivers

MORGAN CITY - VC senior Andrew Marceaux delivered when he was called on.
Marceaux is the backup quarterback for Drew Lege, a junior who has thrown for 5,200 yards over the last three years.
This season Marceaux gets to play quarterback when VC is leading by far. He has appeared in nine games.
But on Friday, that changed.
On VC’s second possession of the game, quarterback Drew Lege injured his ankle and was sidelined for the rest of the game.
With the district title and a No. 1 powerpoint ranking on the line, no one panicked when Lege did not come back in.

Erath escapes Abbeville with a win and a share of the district title

The Erath Bobcats escaped the Wildcat Stadium with a 24-22 win and a piece of the District 6 3-A football title.
The Bobcats, St. Martinville, and the Kaplan Pirates share the title with a 3-1 district. A piece of a district title still counts as a district title. Football district titles do not come around too often at Erath High. Before Friday’s win, Erath had only won five district titles (1958, 1959, 1962, 1963 and 1998). It’s been 21 years since their last district title in 1998. None of the Bobcat players were born the last time Erath won a football district title.
