Bobcats celebrate homecoming

After seven turnovers in a 28-15 loss to Breaux Bridge, Eunice High head coach Paul Trosclair said there wasn’t much need to watch the film.
“I’m not sure that a whole lot of learning should take place,” he said. “It’s pretty common knowledge to everybody that if you turn it over that many times you can’t win.
“I don’t think it will happen again as we didn’t have any turnovers on the season before that,” the coach said.
Facing Abbeville this week for homecoming, Trosclair said his plan is to get back to the basics and play mistake free.
