Thibodaux High head coach Chris Dugas is motivated after missing the playoffs last season for the first time since 2018. Hurricane Ida played a big part into the Tigers lack of success last year which caused some key starters to transfer out.
"I really like the way we've looked the last few weeks," Dugas said. "We have good leadership on both sides of the ball with Ean Rodrigue & Rashaad Jackson so that's a plus for us. We have some playmakers at our skill positions that we're excited about & we have really good quarterback play to get those guys the ball."
Here are some prospects for the Tigers to keep an eye on this upcoming season.
(Sr.) QB Ean Rodrigue is one of the most underrated quarterbacks in the state. He's a true dual threat that has the ability to put a team on his back & get this Thibodaux team back to the playoffs. Rodrigue should be in for a big senior year.
(Sr.) ATH Demarcus Singleton will be the ultimate playmaker for the Tigers this year. Expect him to move around a lot playing running back & receiver so he can get the ball in his hands a variety of ways.
(Jr.) LB Rashaad Jackson is what every team needs on their defense. He loves to be physical in the run game & he can also play the pass because of his athleticism. Jackson is due for a breakout year for sure.
(Sr.) RB Jaylon Brown will make an impact for the Tigers as a return specialist & at running back. He has the ability to take it the distance anytime he touches the ball.
(Fresh.) WR Khyren Folse has a chance to be the next big time prospect to come out of Thibodaux. He will play a major role early on in his career & if he can get up to speed quickly, he can definitely make an impact in year one for the Tigers.
(Soph.) DB Lawrence Bangura
(Sr.) WR Ashton Jones
Other notable names to lookout for are (Soph.) OL Jaxon Granier, (Sr.) WR Owen Murillo, (Sr.) DB Kemon Folse, (Sr.) RB Kanye' Holmes, (Jr.) DL Jase Robertson.
