|OCS readies for improved Lake Providence squad|
Off to a hot start, it would be easy for the Ouachita Christian School Eagles to sit back, relax and admire their handy work.
Instead, OCS, the No. 2 ranked team in Louisiana in Class 1A, would prefer to become a football team.
"We have had some good offensive execution," said OCS coach Steven Fitzhugh. "I have been proud of the kids."
"But we still need to improve on both sides of the ball," Fitzhugh said.
OCS (2-0) will get an opportunity to improve Friday when the Eagles host Lake Providence (2-0). A 7 p.m. kickoff at Eagles Stadium is on tap.
Sonny Nason, a former Bastrop assistant coach who helped direct the Rams to the top of Class 4-A, is in his first season as head coach of the Panthers.
"They are a much improved team," Fitzhugh said. "(Nason) has created a new attitude."
One big improvement Nason has made is in the way the Lake Providence community perceives his team. He has grown the number of players on his squad to 48.
A spread offense is the key to Lake Providence's success. The Panther wide receivers and running backs have speed, which will certainly challenge the OCS defense.
"They have the skill players to make big plays, Fitzhugh said. "They are very strong at the skill positions."
Senior linebacker Rober Atkins leads the Lake Providence defense in tackles through the first two games of the 2008 campaign.
In part because of Atkins, Lake Providence has given up just six points on the year, dominating Grambling 18-6 in week of the season one before bombing Tensas 36-0 last week.
