Menard Poised For Big Senior Year

Breaux Bridge's offense should be fun to watch this fall, as the Tigers will feature the pass-catching skills of deep threat WR Travin Dural and a hard-charging ground game led by RB Adrian Menard. Read further to learn more about Menard.

"Last year was my first year starting at a public school," said Adrian Menard (5-9, 180), the junior running back from Breaux Bridge High School. "I transferred from Breaux Bridge Christian Academy, which is a small private school.

"My junior season was a good experience. I rushed for 955 yards and 10 touchdowns. I'm getting mail from Ole Miss, UL, Southeastern, and Memphis. I'm going to Junior Days at UL and Southeastern."

Menard enjoyed his best games last year in district competition.

"Against St. Martinville (20-12 win), I rushed for 185 yards on 15 carries and scored the game-winning touchdown. Against Teurlings Catholic (31-23 win), I carried the team late in the game. I had 140 yards rushing on 10 carries with a TD."

Breaux Bridge, which toils in one of the state's toughest 4A districts, reached the first round of the playoffs last year - where the Tigers encountered district champ Northside (the Vikings defeated BBHS, 42-14). This fall, the Tigers will field an experienced and battle-tested squad, led by Menard and three-star WR Travin Dural (Alabama offer).

"Our entire offense is coming back except for three players," said Menard. "We'll have 16 returning starters; three of us were all-district -- Travin and I were both all-district.

"It's fun watching Travin make big plays. We've been playing together since midget football and he's always been a special player."
