"Basically, that's all it was (watching the defense strut its stuff)," said Dural. "Our offense played alright, but the defense kept getting turnovers and scoring. We had a couple of scores on offense. Josh Faulk, our 'B Back,' ran for a touchdown. He and Adrian Menard are the starters at running back. Adrian is the 'A Back.' When Darian (Thomas) went out (with a broken leg early during the regular season), Lamar moved over from defense to starting running back. Then, Lamar switched back to defense and Josh Faulk got the start at running back.
"Josh is a junior who isn't quite as fast as Lamar or Adrian, but he's really strong. He's around 5-foot-11, 200 pounds. He has nice size. Josh Williams scored on a pick six. He's been shutting receivers down and doing his thing. He's a senior who is getting looked at by Northwestern (State)."
Dural added another touchdown to his resume last night, too.
"I caught a one-yard fade for a touchdown and had another 30-yard catch," he said. "I have 19 touchdowns and around 500 to 600 yards with 45 catches.
"Vandebilt (5-6) was very disciplined, but they also made a lot of mistakes. Their coach told us after the game how they're a young team. They should be good next year."
Breaux Bridge is at home again next week in the second round of the playoffs. The Tigers (10-1) entertain No. 13 Salmen (7-4), which got past No. 20 Broadmoor.
"The only thing I've heard about Salmen so far is that they have a big defensive front," said Dural, who refuses to get overconfident for any opponent, especially in light of the No. 1 and No. 4 seeds (St. Paul's and Dutchtown) in Class 5A getting ousted in the first round. "I was shocked to find out (about St. Paul's and Dutchtown losing). That shows that you can't underestimate anyone. You have to come out with that fire or something like that will happen every time."
"LSU/Bama was a good game," he said. "I got to see it in bits and pieces, because I was also occupied with my family. LSU came away with a win in the end. That's what good teams do; win at any cost."
