The success of a football team definitely depends on how well both the offensive and defensive lines play. That is unless it is 7-on-7 football, where lines are non-existent.
The Abbeville Wildcats put their pass-skel abilities to the test Tuesday morning when they traveled to Acadiana High to take on the Wreckin’ Rams.
“I think we did pretty good,” Abbeville head coach Larry Breaux said.
The Wildcats made several plays, including three interceptions by defensive back Trevor Brailey. Quarterback R.J. Frederick capped one particular drive with a touchdown pass to Brett Meaux.
“We did some good things,” Breaux said. “I think we have a lot of work to do.
“But for where we are I think we are looking pretty good.”
The Wildcats will look to continue that play into this weekend when they take part in a 7-on-7 tournament at Cajun Field put on by the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Breaux said the field will include around 20 teams.
“There will be some solid competition there,” Breaux said.
Teams will start play around 2 p.m. Friday and will continue Saturday morning. The teams will be seeded Saturday after lunch based on records during Friday and Saturday morning games.
“They told us we would be guaranteed about five games,” Breaux said.
The Wildcats will hit the field full force Aug. 20 when they scrimmage at Rayne.
