|OCS looks back on 11-2 season|
The Ouachita Christian School Eagles celebrated one of their best football seasons in school history last week during a banquet that put a smile on every Eagle fan's face.
Supporters crowded into the school cafeteria to honor the team for their accomplishments during an 11-2 campaign.
OCS won a district championship as well as the No.2 overall seed in the Louisiana High School Athletic Association Class 1A playoffs in 2008.
OCS eventually lost in the quarterfinals to Christian Life Academy of Baton Rouge. The Crusaders went on to become state runner-up two weeks later.
"This team was special," OCS head coach Steven Fitzhugh said. "I was extremely proud of everything this group accomplished and how hard they worked to get where they are."
This OCS team became the first squad in the 33-year history of the school to win 11 games in back-to-back seasons. They also reached the semifinal round in Class 1A twice.
"This group worked real hard," Fitzhugh said. "There were no individuals. We were a team and we accomplished a lot through hard work and a good team effort."
The offense was also one of the most prolific in OCS history as they finished with a whopping 41 points per game by the end of the 2008 season.
Besides each player receiving a trophy, the OCS coaching staff and administration also handed out a few individual awards.
The Larry Bristo Excellence award went to senior wide receiver Matt Kennedy. Kennedy was a favorite target of quarterback Jacob Davis during one of the best passing offenses that OCS has ever seen.
Offensive lineman Micah Shackleford was awarded the Extra Mile Award. Shackleford was recognized as the player that went above and beyond what was asked of the senior.
OCS placed 10 of their 12 seniors on academic all-state. This was the most of any one school in the state for Class 1A.
