Mamou Green Demons

2017 Record: 1-9

How it Happened: For a lot of teams a 1-9 football season is hardly anything to get excited about. But for juniors and seniors on this year’s Mamou Green Demons team, last year’s singular win was the first of their high school careers.

Mamou suffered through two straight winless seasons in 2015 and 2016, before finally beating Port Barre 15-14 last season in week 4.

Defensive coordinator Dwight Collins takes over the head coaching reigns this season, while junior backup quarterback Justin Fontenot has been catapulted into the starting role.

The Green Demons will switch from a spread offense to a Wing-T under Collins. And have only lost two starters on each side of the ball from a year ago.

But with so much change, Collins says, don’t be surprised if you see a different Mamou team than your used to seeing in 2018.
