"One of their corners is only 5-foot-5, so we're going to try to get our wide receiver, Tonori Boutte (10.53 in the 100 meters), matched up against him."
The Gents experienced a bit of adversity at the season's outset, but that hasn't stopped Bourque, Boutte, and the rest of the Crowley squad.
Crowley led undefeated Class 4A Jennings for much of the season-opener, but the larger school rallied in the second half for the win.
In addition to beginning the season with a loss, Crowley also lost its starting QB, D'Myrus Daniels, to an injury.
Fortunately, the Gents have been able to fall back on Bourque, who has rushed for nearly 460 yards this season.
"Losing our quarterback hurt in a way," explained Bourque, "but not too bad, because our backup is experienced.
"It hurt us more on defense than anything, because our backup QB was our team leader in tackles until he had to move to offense."
What does Bourque have to say about his own performance thus far in 2010?
"Many of our TDs (he has six rushing touchdowns) have come off whams and other inside plays between the tackles. On some plays, I've hit the hole in the center and then cutback when I saw another wide-open hole (beyond the line of scrimmage)."
Last week, Bourque dashed for 200 yards on only 16 carries with three TDs vs. Bolton. He also has four receptions on the season for 100 yards with another score.
