Notre Dame’s defensive back Caleb Comeaux
Notre Dame’s Caleb Comeaux tops list of Week 6 Grid Stars
Being in the right place at the right time helps, but having a nose for the football is key for defensive backs at any level of football.
Caleb Comeaux proved that on Friday during Notre Dame’s 48-14 victory over Rayne.
Comeaux, a senior defensive back, logged just two tackles but he made a huge impact in the first half by intercepting a pair of passes and recovering two fumbles, one of which he returned 17 yards for a touchdown.
His performance was more than enough to earn him top honors on this week’s edition of Grid Stars.
Comeaux began his career night by picking off a Colin LaCombe pass on the Wolves’ first offensive play of the game. Three plays later, the Pios scored.
Later in the first quarter, Comeaux recovered a fumble at the RHS 22-yard line to set up another score that put the Pios up 21-0.
Comeaux added to the lead in the second quarter when he recovered a fumble on a kickoff return and took it 17 yards for a touchdown. He then logged another interception just before the half and returned it 36 yards to set the Pios up for their final score of the game.
Comeaux, along with the other Notre Dame starters, gave way to the reserves in the second half.
Other standouts for Notre Dame included Parker Seilhan, Thomas Meche and Dominic Thibodeaux.
Seilhan ran for 61 yards and two touchdowns on just three carries. He scored on a 47-yard burst midway through the first quarter and then hit paydirt from 17 yards out early in the second.
The senior quarterback also completed five of 11 pass attempts for 46 yards.
Meche was the Pios’ leader on the ground with 10 carries for 74 yards, including a 25-yard touchdown run in the second frame.
Thibodeaux added 65 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. He also had two receptions for 30 yards.
Crowley High’s Omar Butler and Nick Williams also turned in notable performances in the Gents’ 59-13 District 6-3A loss to Kaplan.
Butler made a highlight reel play late in the fourth quarter when he reversed field on an 82-yard touchdown run. The freshman finished the night with six carries for 95 yards while also making a handful of tackes on the defensive side of the ball.
Williams, a sophomore, had an impressive 86-yard touchdown run on an option play in the first half. He had seven carries for 89 yards.
