Lafayette Christian High School
Outside of Lafayette, not many people know of Lafayette Christian High School. The small private school located right off the interstate (University Avenue exit) has a solid football program currently in the making. 2015 will be the teams third season in LHSAA 1A Football. Head Coach Derek Landry has been with the team since their first season. He went to Ville Platte High School and played under Jory Randle before going to Northwestern State. Coach Landry’s experience includes coaching as the DC at AES as well as coaching under Arena League Coach John Fourcade (Acadiana Mudbugs). The team went 6-4 and 5-5 in their first two seasons respectively. Not many coaches have a winning record in a team’s beginning two seasons. They also have produced two Collegiate level players in the last couple years: Sterling Miller at ULL and Desmond Prejean at Northwestern State. OL Joshua Brister and RB Jeremy Joseph are two members from the 2015 class who have options to play college ball as well. Looking at 2015, the 3rd year of the program should be an exciting one. They will have about 10-13 starters returning along with some very strong players. The team has healthy numbers, good athletes, and a good coaching staff. If they work hard this summer, the team should be able to continue there early success.
