Big win last week, big challenge this Friday for Glenbrook’s Apaches

Celebration of an historic and impressive opening football victory is short lived at Glenbrook as the Apaches turn their attention to the defending LHSAA Division IV state champion Calvary Cavaliers.

A week removed from their first-ever LHSAA football game, the Apaches now focus on the No. 1 team in Class 1A. The Calvary Cavaliers will host a fiery, but outnumbered Apaches squad Friday night.

Although the Cavalier roster is double the size of the Apaches, Glenbrook head coach David Feaster hopes that last year’s game against Greenville Christian has provided his team with the experience and courage needed to stand up to the challenge.

“We are hoping our guys are not intimidated by those guys and go over there and put forth a great effort.”

Calvary will enter the game with one of the state’s top-ranked quarterbacks in Louisiana Tech commit, Landry Lyddy, running their offense. Last week Lyddy carved up the Logansport defense en route to a 477-yard, five-touchdown performance.

Lyddy’s favorite target last week was sophomore receiver, Aubrey Hermes, who hauled in 11 passes for 232 yards and three touchdowns.

The Apache defense will need a strong effort from Hayden Harmon, Maddox Mandino, and Tre Kent in order to slow down the explosive Cavalier offense.

The Apache offense will once again look to spread the wealth and get the ball in the hands of their plethora of weapons in order to keep pace with the Cavaliers. Glenbrook rolled up 45 first-half points in a 59-28 romp over former MAIS rival River Oaks last Friday night.

Kickoff is at 7 o’clock Friday night at Jerry Barker Stadium on the campus of Calvary Baptist Academy in Shreveport, in the first District 1-1A contest for both teams.
