Basile looking to compete in district

BASILE – There are only five seniors on the Bearcats football team this season, but Basile head coach Kevin Bertrand believes that group can help lead the way to a District 4-1A championship.
“They are a lead by example group,” Bertrand said of seniors Issac Cortez, Keeman Ivory, Gabe Duplechin, Isaiah Ceaser and Logan David.
“They have been starters and they have experience in the big games so I think they will be a big part of our success this season.”
Basile will scrimmage DeQuincy on Aug. 22 and then host the Evangeline Parish jamboree on Aug. 30.

With Class 3-A state champion Eunice moving up to 4-A, the Bears could be one of the favorites to battle for the district title this season.

Basile went 8-2 in the regular season and finished 6-1 in district play.
The Bearcats opened the playoffs with a 56-8 win over Tensas and then rolled to a 63-40 win over Montgomery.
