Bridgewater Ready for Championship Game

After being knocked out of the playoffs by John Curtis in each of the last two seasons, Evangel is hoping this year will be different.

John Curtis beat Evangel 29-10 in the semifinals of the 2007 Louisiana 2A playoffs. Last year, the two teams met in the finals with Curtis prevailing 35-14.

Thomas Bridgewater is hoping to to help Evangel pull off the victory in 2009. "We have to get better field position," explained Bridgewater. "When we get the ball, we have to mix it up. We need to go vertical, but we also need to make plays out of the screen."

Bridgewater has made visits to LSU, Louisiana Tech, and Alabama. Louisiana Tech is his lone offer at this point.

"I went to a couple of games at Tech," added Bridgewater. "I really like the atmosphere, the fans, and the video board."

Bridgewater said he is close friends with former Evangel stars Quinn Giles and Cerderrick Tyson. Giles and Tyson are in their first year at Louisiana Tech.

"Louisiana Tech is a good place for me," mentioned Bridgewater. "I talk to Coach Eggen a lot. I will probably commit soon."
