After 22 years on the sidelines, former Teurlings Head Coach Sonny Charpentier decided to hang up his coaching cleats in November.
While he remains at the school as the athletic director for the Rebels, his 194 wins and 11 district titles will be hard to replace on the sideline.
If anyone’s up to the task, it’s his son, Dane Charpentier.
Dane spent last season as Cecilia’s offensive coordinator and was the head coach at Opelousas Catholic in 2014 and 15.
He takes over a Teurlings team that has 13 starters returning including some beef in the trenches.
The Rebels still have some questions at the skill positions but say no matter who starts under Dane, it’s all about winning with speed.
