Hebert Leads the Way

Archbishop Shaw is always a force to be reckoned with on the gridiron and 2010 will be no exception to that rule. With offensive lineman Chet Hebert opening the holes for players such as Lawrence Breaud, the Eagles are sure to soar this fall. Read further to find out which game is circled on Hebert's calender.

Louisiana schools engaged in preseason scrimmages last weekend and Archbishop Shaw, led by offensive lineman Chet Hebert, matched up with Mandeville in a contest that saw plenty of offensive production.

"Our offense was strong," said Hebert, who has scholarship offers from Louisiana Tech and ULM. "We did really well - four touchdowns on four drives. I graded out at 97% for the scrimmage.

"We primarily ran the ball and we had no problems. I'd say that we averaged no less than six yards per carry. We have a dominating offense with Lawrence Breaud. He mostly played running back, but he also played some wide receiver and had four or five catches."

This week, the Eagles play John Ehret in the jamboree, followed by the season opener next week against neighborhood rival Higgins.

"We know that they're coming after us," Hebert said of the Hurricanes. "We expect nothing but their best. They had three players on the preseason all-metro team -- two linebackers and a cornerback. It's a rivalry, because the schools are located close to each other, but it's only our second year playing them in awhile."

While Hebert -- a two-time all-metro selection himself -- focuses on the task at hand each week, the senior admits that he's looking forward to a particular game.

"November 6th," he emphatically stated. "Archbishop Rummel; there's no doubt in the back of my mind. It's a game I'm ready for. That's our arch-rival and last year, they beat us 18-17. It's a game for bragging rights and the megaphone, which is on the line.

"They took the megaphone from us last season for the first time in five or six years. I'll definitely be matching up with their defensive tackle, Johnny Bertucci. I went against him last year too."
