GUEYDAN - The Gueydan Bears at a 7-on-7 passing tournament at St. Thomas More last week? Were they there to watch and see what a passing game looks like?
They were there to participate against other teams who love to pass the football.
“Our guys performed competitively, “ said GHS head coach Roderick Moy. “I am so glad we went.”
When is the last time you saw a Bears’ team throw the football every play? Never.
In the two day 7-on-7 tournament, teams could only throw the football.
Mikie Bazar and Barron Sawyer are playing for the 13 year old Major All-Star team made up of players from Acadiana. This weekend the two men are playing in Gulf Shores, Ala. and competing in the Mizuno Prospects World Series. On Friday, they upset the No. 1 seed Pennsylvania Team.
Sawyer is the son of Jeff and Dana Sawyer.
Mikie is the son of Nikki Bazar Brasseux and the late Jim Bazar.
To some, the number 13 is an unlucky number. But to 17-year-old Annmarie Broussard that number means a lot.
Broussard is a pole vaulter entering her senior year at Abbeville High School.
She is one of the best female pole vaulters in the state and is striving to be one of the best in the nation.
But to be the best, there is a certain height she needs to jump. That height is 13 feet or better.
