Hayden Cantrelle Leading Teurlings Catholic Into 2016 Season [VIDEO]
Teams like Teurlings Catholic don't rebuild, they reload. Last year's quarterback, Cole Kelley, graduated and took his skills to the SEC to play for the Arkansas Razorbacks.
From the outside, you would think losing a QB of Kelley's caliber sets Teurlings up for a bit of a down year. They must not know Hayden Cantrelle.
Cantrelle is a fantastic baseball player, and he already committed to play for Tony Robichaux and the Ragin' Cajuns on the diamond. He's a gamer. Last season for Teurlings, he caught passes from Kelley and made plays on the perimeter. This year, he's going to be the one pulling the trigger.
At 5'10" and under 200 lbs, he's a completely different player than Kelley. Not only is he athletic, he's oozing with confidence. He's dangerous, and he knows it.
"I walk in and play like an athlete at my position," Cantrelle said with a little smile.
He credits his aggression to baseball, and he carries a little edge. When he makes a play, he struts a little bit, and his teammates feed off it.
Teurlings is coming into the season with a little chip on their shoulders. Every year the goal is an outright district championship, and last year they had to share. Cantrelle doesn't like sharing when it comes to football.
"Last year left a bad taste in our mouths, you know," Cantrelle said. He added, "As far as district goes, of course we want to sweep the district. Last year was a let down, we don't like to tie for a district championship too much."
Head Coach Sonny Charpentier is a calm character, but his QB is fiesty. He's going to give Cantrelle the keys to the kingdom, and it's his job to rule the field with an iron fist.
