NEW IBERIA — In 2018 Chris Landry moved from defensive back to linebacker, a change that paid dividends.

"I was nervous. I was very nervous. All these 6-3 guys are doing it and now they're asking me to do it," he said."

Landry surpassed expectations for a first time linebacker recording 102 tackles and intercepting three passes. He was named the 6-2A defensive MVP.

"He definitely exceeded our expectations. He's going to study everything that he does. He takes doing things wrong personally," said head coach Brent Indest.

In six seasons of football Landry has won a state title, played in two, and won a district title. What is left? Maybe another title, those are always good.

"That's the only goal, to get back to the state championship," said Landry. "If we get another shot at Notre Dame, that would be awesome. But, getting to another state championship is all it's about."
