Comeaux Spartans

2017 Record: 4-6

How it Happened: Comeaux had a subpar 2017 season finishing the year at just 4-6 and losing in the first round of the playoffs to Acadiana.

Lafayette School District’s rezoning hit Comeaux’s football team particularly hard this offseason. The Spartans usually field a roster of about 90 players, but fourth year head coach Doug Dotson says this year’s team will have about 57 players.

Accordingly, many Spartans players will be forced to play both ways in 2018. Most notably, Comeaux’s wide receiving core will pull double duty as the teams defensive backs unit and running back Donovan Batiste will be adding the position of cornerback to his resume this season.

Additionally, senior defensive lineman Landon Rabeaux will make the move to offense as the team’s left tackle.
