Bachman turn for overdrive: Calvary travels to New Iberia

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La -

The Calvary Cavaliers have come a long way since their 1-4 start.  After battling through one of the toughest out of district schedules in the state  the Cavs find themselves just one win away from playing for a state title.  Head coach John Bachman says it's all thanks to the work his team puts in when no one is watching.  "The biggest thing I think that's lead to our success is, we've really been practicing well. We're really going hard against each other.  We are using that mantra that the guy across from you in practice needs to be the toughest guy that you face and if it is, then Friday night shouldn't be that difficult."

Son Jason Bachman is the team's offensive coordinator who likes the way the tough schedule has toughened his team.  "You've really got two choices, You can hang in there and fight or you can quit.  That's really kind of the message that you get in life if things don't go your way, you can hang in there in fight or you can quit.  You know the outcome if you quit, but you can change it if you fight and the kids just hung in there and they fought.  Like I said, it's a testimony to how hard they've worked."

Thanks to the first round bye Calvary will now have to hit the road in the semi finals all the way to New Iberia.  The Cavs will face a Panthers team that also started the year slowly but have won their last seven.  On Friday night one of those streaks will have to end as both teams look to punch their ticket to New Orleans.

Quarterback Shea Patterson knows he and his teammates should have their hands full.  "I've heard a lot of good things about them and their program.  We've just got to prepare all week and look good going into that game."

"Great tradition down there," says John Bachman.  "You watch them on film, typical Catholic school.  They're going to play very hard, not going to beat themselves, and be where they're supposed to be.  Just an overall well coached football team."

The younger Bachman agrees. "They're a scrappy football team.  I believe their three losses came against opponents who have made it to the semis and quarters and two of them are still left playing.  Same identity same backgrounds and I'm sure their coaches would say the same things about them.  Their kids showed up, they got better each week, they bought in."

And with both teams averaging 50 plus points during their win streaks we can expect plenty of fireworks in Friday night's game.
