JACKSON, La. (WAFB) - Friday night’s Sportsline Summer Camp took the crew to East Feliciana to visit with the Tigers.
After coaching his oldest son, Cedric, who is now a defensive back at Northwestern State, veteran head coach Cedric Anderson is now looking over his second and youngest son, Caleb, who will play quarterback and other positions for the Tigers.
Caleb Anderson has many college offers so far, including Tulane, UL-Lafayette, Virginia, Army, Navy, and Air Force.
East Feliciana finished 6-6 last season and reached the second round of the playoffs.
“Each year is a little bit different, but a lot of times when you have kids returning, they have that bitter taste in their mouths from the previous season,” said Cedric Anderson. “So hopefully, that will push them to work that much harder.”
“It’s been great; we’re a lot farther than last year,” added Caleb Anderson. “Better participation during the summer and we’re closer. We hang out an hour after practice just joking and talking.”
What are you expecting from the O-line, D-line? How are y’all working?
“We’re working good, getting the footwork down,” said senior offensive guard Cordarius Wright. “We’re ready.”
Cedric Anderson is the only head coach East Feliciana has ever known, as it was born 10 years ago when Jackson and Clinton merged.
Caleb Anderson will be one of the true leaders called upon in 2019, as the Tigers only have four starters returning on each side of the ball.
“Probably got about 17 or 18 offers so far. And what’s good about that is he didn’t get lazy. He worked that much harder. I’m expecting some good things from him - leadership, as well as on the field,” Cedric Anderson explained.
“Me and some of the guys, while we’re at school during the off periods, we watch film to get a scope of the defense - gaps and everything we can exploit,” Caleb Anderson stated.
Sportsline Summer Camp will feature Amite on Saturday.
