WHITE CASTLE, La. (WAFB) - Stop No. 43 for Sportsline Summer Camp meant a trip to Iberville Parish to visit with the White Castle Bulldogs.

The guys were back in the weight room on Monday, July 27, after a two-week parish-wide postponement. The Bulldogs look to get back to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome after last year’s Class 1A state title loss to Oak Grove.

With Aaron Meyer at Central Lafourche, Marc Brown is now the team’s head coach. Last June, Brown had recently accepted the same position at his alma mater, Baker High School, but stepped down for what he describes as a better opportunity.

“The biggest things for me are the resources that Iberville Parish has, the facilities, and also the talent,” said Brown. Those three things are what you can do to build a program, longevity, year after year. That, to me, in the grand scheme of things, was really the deciding factor in making this decision.”

After spending the last three seasons as head coach at Livonia, Brown is now taking over for the Bulldogs and outside of switching the defense to a 4-2-5, Brown said there won’t be any big changes schematically.

Senior Tahj Favorite will be the man under center, while Jacob Green and Keith Landy are just a few names who will be catching his passes.

“We’re underdogs, everybody is going to look down on us,” said Favorite. “We got mostly skill guys. We do not have that many big people around here, so we’re small but we do not look into it or none of that. So, we just take that as motivation.”

“Every day, when we get in this building, it is working towards getting back to competing for a state championship. It’s a lot of things that have to go your way but one thing that we can control is how we work each and every day. Having that championship mindstate and that championship effort in everything that we do,” Brown added.

The Bulldogs finished the season with a 9-4 record.
