Apaches welcome Pelicans to town

Glenbrook welcomes tough Homer team Friday night as the Pelicans look to continue their dominating district run.

The Homer Pelicans, (2-1, 2-0) enter Friday night’s contest on the heels of a two-game district winning streak where they have out scored their opponents 118-0.

The Pelican high-powered offense is led by Takeviuntae Kidd at QB. The senior signal caller has thrown for 12 touchdowns and 647 yards through 3 games.

The Apache defense will look to contain Kidd in order to limit the Pelican scoring opportunities. This effort will be led by defensive linemen Jonathan Bryant, Mason Farnell, and Preston Pope.

On Offense, the Apaches will once again rely on a multitude of weapons to try to penetrate the stingy Pelican defense led by Juniors Walteze Champ and Cameron Winzer.

For the Apache offense to be successful, the trio of Maddox Mandino, Turner Mclelland, and DJ Carter will need to get rolling early and often. Last week, all three were able to find the end zone in the team’s rout of Lincoln Prep.

Head Coach David Feaster knows all too well that Homer will present a much tougher task for his young and undersized Apaches. “Homer is several years ahead of Lincoln Prep. They are not that much different than them, they are just years ahead. Five years ago, Homer and Lincoln Prep would have been a dog fight, but right now they are ahead, and the rest of us are trying to catch up to them,” said Feaster.

In the latest Louisiana Sports Writers Association Poll, the Pelicans came in at #6. The Apache’s week 2 opponent, Calvary, was ranked #1, and their week 6 opponent, Haynesville, is ranked #7.

Game time Friday night is at 7:00pm at Apache Stadium.
