Bogalusa celebrates “Senior Night” this evening with a District 7-3A home contest against Archbishop Hannan at 7 p.m.
“We’re treating it like the playoffs. We feel like if we beat Hannan, it’ll help our seed, so it’s a very important game for us,” Bogalusa coach David Roberts said.
Bogalusa enters this week with a 4-4 overall record and 2-1 district mark. Bogalusa comes in after defeating Jewel Sumner, 29-13. The Lumberjacks are 21st in the LHSAA Class 3A unofficial power rankings.
Bogalusa had a solid rushing game last game last week, led by Dianté Lenoir, who ran for 249 yards and four touchdowns on 34 carries.
“He’s got great vision,” Roberts said. “He runs real hard. He’s hard to tackle and then he turns around and plays on defense and plays really well.”
Lenoir is a linebacker on defense.
Chas Smith posted 59 yards on nine carries last week.
Defensively, the Lumberjacks held Jewel Sumner to 177 yards of total offense.
O’Trevious Gatlin had 11 tackles and recovered a pair of fumbles.
Keltron Harry had seven stops, one for loss.
Charles Taylor put up seven stops, including one for a loss, to go with a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
Roberts said that defensive lineman/linebacker Harry, linebacker Gatlin and lineman Cody Sumrall have been the defensive leaders.
“Hannan’s got a big and good offensive line, so we need those guys to play big this week,” Roberts said.
Hannan begins the week at 7-2 overall and 4-2 in district. The Hawks began the season 7-0, but have lost two straight. Last week was a 35-12 loss to Loranger. Hannan is eighth in the unofficial LHSAA Division II power rankings.
“It’s an extremely important game for us,” Hannan coach Scott Wattigny said. “We’ve dropped two the last two weeks. We’re looing to get back on the winning train. We’ve been in the games, but now we’re looking to finish the season with a win and go in the playoffs feeling good about ourselves and playing good football.”
The quarterback is Chris Rabensteiner with Brendan David at running back.
The wide receivers are Jacob Gaude and Daniel Labourdette.
Dawson Millen is a wide receiver/running back. Seth Caillouet plays wide receiver and tight end, but will also see time at running back and fullback.
