Bad weather ruined Chad Alfaro's chance to meet and mingle with Cajun fans at a much hyped tailgate for the home opener against Kent State in Lafayette. Fortunately, the rain did let up for game time.
"It was great," said an elated Alfaro, right after his 3-0 Mandeville Skippers had just shut out a top ten district foe in St Paul's 17-0. "I loved it. I really do like the school."
Alfaro came to the Cajuns' summer camp, and didn't really know what to expect.
"I have really come to like the program a lot," Alfaro says. The summer program; what they've done with players has really impressed me.
"I like the coaches a lot," Alfaro said smiling. "Especially coach (Troy) Wingerter… I like him a lot."
As to recent recruiting activity, most of the attention still seems to be coming from inside the state.
"McNeese State is calling me, trying to schedule a visit for me to come up there." Alfaro said. "Nicholls State is trying to get me to go there, but mainly it's McNeese more than anybody.
"I still get letters now and then from Purdue."
For now, Chad Alfaro and Mandeville are 3-0, and life couldn't be better for the Skippers
