Most Friday football games in Vermilion Parish moved to Saturday

Five out of six high school coaches moved their first game of the season to Saturday because of wet fields.
The only game still scheduled for Friday is Kaplan’s road game to Acadiana High in Scott.
Delcambre was scheduled to travel to South Cameron on Friday, but that game was completely canceled.
Tentatively, the Gueydan Bears will play against North Central on Saturday at 11 a.m. The start of the game may be pushed back, depending on the weather.
Head coach Roderick Moy said playing on Saturday gives his field another day to dry out.

GHS coach Roderick Moy

Gueydan airs it out this summer

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.
