RAYNE — It's a homecoming for new Rayne Head Coach Kaine Guidry who returns to his alama mater in 2019.
And new coaches mean fresh starts.
The Wolves lose 22-seniors from last season's 3-8 team. A disappointing year for a team that went to the 4A semifinals the season before.
Guidry brings a new take on offense and defense. The Wolves will use both three and four man fronts on defense and switch to a pro-style offense.
"We're still going to pride ourselves on running the ball, a power run team," said the first time head coach. "But we're going to do it out of a lot of formations. We'll be a pro-style offense but have the ability to jump into a lot of different formations and spread people out to run it."
A new system signals new roles for a number of Wolves like senior running back Jamarcus Monroe.
"Offensively he's probably our best athlete as far as someone who can go up and get the ball," said Guidry. "We'll hand him the ball and play a little wildcat quarterback. We're going to ask Jamarcus to do a lot."
"I'm not going to be cocky about it, but I'm glad he's talking me up," said Monroe. "That's good. Now I just got to show him what I can do on the field, that's it."
2018 Record: 3-8
