2023 Preview

The South Plaquemines Hurricanes are prepearing for an exciting 2023 football season, and there's an air of optimism surrounding the team.

Coming off a solid 6-4 record in 2022, the Hurricanes are looking to build on that success and make a deeper impact in the playoffs. Head Coach Lyle Fitt, entering his 7th year at the helm, is confident in his squad's abilities, and with good reason.

The Hurricanes have a strong foundation with a substantial number of returning lettermen, totaling 24 players. This experience bodes well for the team's overall cohesiveness, which could prove crucial in high-pressure situations. The offense is in good hands, as 9 out of 11 starters are returning, including sophomore sensation Roderick Parker, who showcased his talent by throwing for over 1,700 yards and 25 touchdowns last season.

On the defensive side, senior Richie Espadron is a force to be reckoned with. His leadership and performance were instrumental in the previous year, recording an impressive 62 tackles and seven sacks. Additionally, the versatile Alex Phillips returns, having racked up 82 yards, six sacks, and two interceptions. With these defensive stalwarts leading the charge, the Hurricanes are sure to be a formidable presence on the field.

Coach Fitt has expressed high expectations for the upcoming season, emphasizing the team's growth and overall strength. A crucial factor will be maintaining the team's health, ensuring that key players are available throughout the season and the playoffs. If they can keep their roster at peak performance, the Hurricanes could indeed make a deep playoff run, leaving fans eagerly anticipating the kickoff and the exciting journey ahead.
