VC quarterback Hunter Frith hands the ball off to freshman Kalix Broussard in the fourth period.

When the game was over, classmates of VC freshman Kalix Broussard came up to him and congratulated him for how well he played against the bigger, stronger Catholic High Panthers. One female classmate told him, “I did not know you play varsity.”

The day before Coach Gary Adkins is going to have tests done, he was busy helping the players change their decal on their helmet at school on Thursday.

While most high school head football coaches are preparing for their first game of the season, Abbeville Head Football Coach Gary Adkins is also doing that, plus, he is preparing to have a brain scan and a biopsy this morning. Doctors found cancer in a thyroid gland in his neck earlier this week.

Sometimes you just have to break tradition and go where your heart is at that moment. The Abbeville Wildcats travel to Kaplan on Friday to battle the Pirates in a non-district game. For years, the game has been billed as the biggest rivalry in Vermilion Parish.
