Brazil and his Loranger teammates were open last week due to Hurricane Isaac. They'll step onto the field this evening vs. a talented University Lab squad that features four-star Tim Williams and acclaimed underclassmen Garrett Brumfield and Nicholas Brossette.
"I went to their game last Sunday," Brazil said of University's 42-14 dismantling of East Ascension. "They looked pretty nice. They manage the game real good.
"Tonight we'll need to execute on offense. I have faith in our defense. Our defense will show up. My teammates have confidence but not the big head. They know U-High is really good."
Projected as a corner (and possibly WR) in college, Brazil is the starting QB at Loranger.
"I'm not sure how much I'll play on defense," he said. "I've been focusing on quarterback a lot."
Loranger reached the second round of the 3A playoffs last year (lost 14-13 to Port Allen). The Wolves are expected to challenge for the state title in 2012.
University, or "U-High," went 12-1 last year. The Cubs are a 2A program.
