Wildcats, Tigers ‘pass’ a good time in 7-on-7 league
"I have to give a lot of credit to Coach (Steve) Robicheaux because he said ‘if you don't mind playing against us, you can join our league," Hahnville head coach Lou Valdin said. "It's worked out great because it's a league where you don't keep score and no one keeps records.
"You just go out there, get work in, and get better for Friday nights."
7-on-7 is a fast-paced game that enhances offensive skills by forcing the quarterback, who has four seconds to get rid of the ball, to throw on each play. Only forward passes are permitted and there is no rushing, tackling or timeouts.
Valdin said that each game lasts 20 minutes and there are five teams in the league with an occasional sixth team added on some sessions.
"It's gone great so far and we are getting in some good work against quality teams," Valdin said. "You work on timing, reading defenses and it gives us the chance to see different kinds of offenses."
Robicheaux echoed that, saying that playing in a 7-on-7 league has been a big part of Destrehan's success over the years.
"We are getting a lot of great work in and the kids really like it," he said. "You get to go out there and run your routes, but the best thing about 7-on-7 is that you get that extra day of practice to make you better."
