One of the most dramatic games of the 2021 football season was the LHSAA Class 4A championship game.
The Westgate defense was pinned at its own one-yard line with 3:02 left to play. The Tigers stopped Warren Easton four consecutive to win the program’s first LHSAA football championship.
The pulsating win set the set the stage for Westgate to sweep the top honors on the Louisiana Sports Writers Association’s Class 4A all-state team.
Quarterback Jordan Doucet was voted the Outstanding Offensive Player, while defensive back Derek Williams claimed Outstanding Defensive Player honors for the Tigers. Westgate’s Ryan Antoine was voted the Coach of the Year on the team selected by a panel of sportswriters from across the state.
Westgate, the No. 5 seed in the Class 4A playoffs, was a heavy underdog but ousted No. 1 seed Edna Karr in the semifinals and then beat third-seeded Easton in the title game.
Doucet had 1,686 passing yards, 1,176 rushing, 204 receiving and 32 total touchdowns on the season. He also contributed as a wide receiver and was a dynamic threat as a runner.
Williams, a four-star recruit according to 247Sports Composite, had 145 total tackles and 14 tackles for loss by the end of the year. The junior’s versatility and prowess on defense led a unit that held Edna Karr and Warren Easton to season-low single game scoring totals.
