BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Madison Prep seniors said the one-point loss to St. Charles Catholic, their only loss of the year that kept them from advancing to the state semifinals, is still on their minds.
"I was heart broken. I just broke down crying," said senior Edwin Kleinpeter.>
"I just use it as motivation. Me and my teammates, you know we just work out two or three times a day, because we just don't want that feeling. Never again," said senior Lyndon Rash.
Madison Prep, a school known for its basketball titles, has a veteran quarterback in Kleinpeter, who's been starting since the end of his sophomore year.
Rash is one of a handful of weapons Kleinpeter can target in the passing game, that also features fellow senior Brian Savoie, who is also a very dangerous guy in the kicking game as well.
Add running back Tyrese Walker, who ran for a thousand yards last year, even though he shared time with another thousand yard rusher Quincy Banks.
Madison Prep also has Brian Savoie, who is not only Kleinpeter's favorite target but a big threat on special teams, and a veteran offensive line that is called the Fat 5.
However, head coach Michael Roach, whose Chargers were 11-1, has to replace several key defenders, like his son and Texas recruit Malcolm Roach. Though they insist guys like Troy James and Donnell Wallace up front and Tasmin Walker in the secondary are more than ready to lead a charge to the Dome.
