Although the official score isn’t kept and stats aren’t recorded, Brusly High School football head coach Erik Willis said that he was impressed with the performance of his Panthers as they scrimmaged against the Broadmoor Buccaneers last Thursday night.
Brusly Middle School physical education coaches Emily Naquin and Chris Cummings are focused on making sure that their students leave the gym this year with lessons that will apply to their entire lives.
Naquin, who coaches girls basketball, volleyball, and track at the middle school, as well as serves as the assistant basketball coach at Brusly High School, said she wants students to not only be healthy on the outside, but also feel good internally.
After weeks of battling each other, football players from Brusly and Port Allen can now take out their aggression on players from different schools.
With one week before jamborees kick off the 2014 season, Brusly entertains Broadmoor and Port Allen visits Kentwood.
Both games take place Thursday at 6 p.m.
One year remains before Akiya Thymes heads to college, but the Brusly senior spent the summer in a university-level study of softball.
Thymes, a LSU commitment, spent the summer with the Wichita Mustangs, a traveling softball team that gave the team a sample of what they should expect on the college level.
