|Parish bragging rights at stake in Ouachita-West Monroe tilt|
The stands will be rocking and emotions will be high. After all, this is West Monroe at Ouachita on Friday night.
Ouachita (2-1) will not just be playing for bragging rights against the second-ranked team in LHSAA Class 5-A. West Monroe (3-0) and the Lions will also be battling for the lead in the District 1-5A standings this week.
"We know how talented they are," Ouachita head coach John Carr said. "We will get their best and we will be real excited to play the game, too."
Senior D.J. Banks ran and passed for a touchdown last week to lead West Monroe over Byrd, 17-7.
Banks has moved to quarterback from wide receiver in 2008 and is making some big plays for the Rebels.
"D.J. (Banks) is so talented," Carr said. "He can make plays throwing and running the football all over the field really. They do so much shifting on defense that is a problem, too."
West Monroe has allowed just 14 points in its first three games combined. The Rebels have moved Barkavious Mingo all over the field from safety to defensive end to confuse opposing offenses. The strategy seems to be working pretty well.
Linebackers Blake Brassell and Robert Lay have contained the backfield each week and made life miserable for most offensive coaches on the other sideline.
On the West Monroe sideline, a few stitches to the lip of running back LaDarius Abrams has Rebel fans concerned. He left the game in the third quarter against Byrd and did not return.
Abrams is questionable and will test his ability in practice late in the week for coaches and trainers to decide his number of carries for the game on Friday night at Ouachita.
Ouachita has excelled on offense and wants to improve its ability to hold onto the ball and limit penalties.
Quarterback Corey Treadway and running back Montrell Conner have made a statement the past three games to make sure opponents know the Ouachita offense means business.
Ouachita limited Airline to just 35 yards passing in demolishing the Vikings 31-7 last week.
The Lions defense, which has remained injury free this season, will test the Rebel offense with a stellar rush to the football.
The game will be broadcast live on 92.3 FM and 105.3 FM on the local radio dial beginning at 7 p.m.
