VC quarterback Hunter Frith hands the ball off to freshman Kalix Broussard in the fourth period.

When the game was over, classmates of VC freshman Kalix Broussard came up to him and congratulated him for how well he played against the bigger, stronger Catholic High Panthers. One female classmate told him, “I did not know you play varsity.”

While most high school head football coaches are preparing for their first game of the season, Abbeville Head Football Coach Gary Adkins is also doing that, plus, he is preparing to have a brain scan and a biopsy this morning. Doctors found cancer in a thyroid gland in his neck earlier this week.
