LAFAYETTE — In the final moments of last year's game against Acadiana, Comeaux receiver Malik Nabers took a short pass and raced inside the Rams' five-yard-line, setting up Chase Robertson's game-winning field goal. The Spartans beat cross-town rival Acadiana 31-30. Months later that win remains a reminder of what Comeaux can be in 2019.

"Acadiana is the measuring stick in this district. In the state for that matter. Just convincing the kids that we can play that way on a consistent basis is just what we're trying to get across to them," said head coach Doug Dotson.

Comeaux has reason to believe it's offense will provide plenty of fireworks this fall.

The Spartans return starting quarterback Tre Harris, a Louisiana Tech receiving commit. A season ago, after walking away from football, Harris returned to the bench in week three, and earned the starting job a week later. In six games he showed plenty of promise.

"He played at a very high level, but, he's going through the off-season and going the spring," said Dotson. "I can't wait to watch him. He's an exciting player. He's dynamic. He can run it, throw it, he catches it too. He'll play wide receiver in different packages."

Dotson says Harris shows great progress this fall with a full off-season under his belt.

Comeaux has not won a district title since 2005.
