DELCAMBRE — Delcambre football is hungry.

2009 was the last the Panthers celebrated a winning season. It was 2008 when they last won a playoff game. Building a winning culture might be the first task for new head coach Artie Liuzza.

"Delcambre does have a lot of history behind their program, so it's a lot easier or lesser of a challenge because they're so hungry for it," Liuzza said.

Liuzza led Highland Baptist the a christian school league championship appearance in 2011, and was in charge of the program as it transitioned into the LHSAA.

In 2016 he was hired as the Panthers' offensive coordinator. Last year, his unit averaged more than 22 PPG, the most Delcambre has scored since 2012.

He brings back the most starters on offense since he came to Delcambre.

"Toward the end of the season last year I think we really started to execute well," said senior running back Parker Nunez. "I think we need to keep moving in that direction this season."

"It's a group of guys who are all the same page, ready to turn to corner for this program and community," said Liuzza. "You can feel that in the the preseason. I've felt that before in years thast were successful, so I'm excited about what these guys can do."

2018 Record: 3-7
District: 7-2A
