This summer has brought a change of culture at Loachapoka, and the Indians will ride on a talented group of senior leaders to make a run at the playoffs this season.

To be a role model, I have to do everything right so I have everyone else looking up at me. If I do right, they’ll do right.

I’m trying to be a leader and leave an example for the younger guys, for them to look on and be like “I gave it my all in the field” so they can give it they all.

In small communities like Loachapoka, Friday nights in the fall are huge for the town. And the support that the community has given isn’t forgotten by Head Coach Reco Newton or his team.

It feels good. It’s a great feeling right now. We haven’t even took the field yet, I have so many people in the community saying coach we’re going to support you, we’ll do anything you need, offering help, anything they can do to help us. Right now it’s a great feeling, it’s a great thing to be a part of this school.
