Lafayette, LA– Acadiana beat Destrehan in 2014 to win the state championship, but this is Coach matt McCullough’s chance to win his first state title as a head coach. The Rams will have an extra day to prepare since the game is not until Saturday, however, McCullough wants to keep things as normal as possible.
Acadiana’s passing game was huge in the win over Zachary. McCullough insists that was always in their bag of weapons but it was their first real chance to use it. he didn’t want to run up the score during the regular season. now they’ll have to slow down the Destrahan running game.
“Our defensive line has to play well and we are going to have to tackle,” McCullough said. “[Kyle Edwards] is a downhill runner and he is strong and fast. We are going to have to come off the football and play good technique and our linebackers are going to have to make big plays. We are going to have to stop the run and we are going to have to be able to stop them in the passing game with big plays.”
