|Parish athletes elect to stay home|
At least 10 football players from Ouachita Parish have elected to stay at home this season and play for the University of Louisiana-Monroe. With the first full day of football practice looming large on the horizon, the Warhawks are eager to get started again.
Especially after coming off a season which saw them get several firsts.
For instance, it marked the first time the Warhawks had ever beaten Alabama, the first time they had been declared bowl eligible since coming to Division I and their first overtime game, a 33-30 three-overtime victory against Florida Atlantic.
The 10 include, Greg James, a 6-1, 210 lb. , junior from Carroll, Darrell McNeal, a 6-0, 212 lb. wide receiver from Neville, Frank Goodin, a 5-9, 196 lb. sophomore running back from West Monroe, LaGregory Sapp, a 6-3, 200 lb. senior wide receiver from Ouachita, Scott Love, a 6-0, 205 lb, junior punter from West Monroe, C. C. Carpenter, a 6-0, 224 lb. freshman linebacker from West Monroe, Cardia Jackson, a 6-2, 232 lb. junior from Wossman, Andrew Stout, a 6-2, 277 lb. sophomore offensive lineman from West Monroe and Antron Mason, a 6-0, 201 lb. freshman quarterback from Carroll.
Practice is scheduled to begin Friday, Aug. 1 with the first game coming Saturday, Aug. 30 when the Warhawks go to Auburn.
Following the Auburn contest, ULM will be traveling to Little Rock to take on the Arkansas Razorbacks at War Memorial Stadium.
The next game on Sept. 13 is at home against Alabama A&M. The following Saturday the Warhawks will travel to New Orleans to take on Tulane.
The next home game is Oct. 4 when Louisiana-Lafayette comes calling. The next Saturday, the Warhawks go to Jonesboro, Ark., to face Arkansas State.
The Warhawks have three home Sun Belt Conference games in a rwo when North Texas, Florida Atlantic and Troy all come in.
November is another road month as the Warkhawks travel to Middle Tennessee at Murfreesboro, Ole Miss at Oxford and Florida International at Miami to close out the season.
Last season the Warhawks caught fire midway through the season and won five of their last six contests and they should have won against Middle Tennessee, a game they lost 43-40.
ULM Coach Charlie Weatherbie is hoping the momentum will carry over to the start of the 2008 season and beyond. even though the season is a tough one.
James and Love have both been named to the Preseason All-Sun Belt Team which was announced by the league this week during the Media Days sessions in New Orleans.
Weatherbie was unavailable for comment this week.
