Haynesville ready to play "real football" now

Posted: Updated:
HAYNESVILLE, La. -

Haynesville has cruised to the Louisiana 1A state semi finals.  Things have been so one-sided, after last week's win Tors head coach  David Franklin said he's glad they get to play real football now.  The "real football" comes on the road at Kentwood.  Haynesville knows what it takes to get to New Orleans and the Tors feel like they left unfinished business at the Superdome.

In football, second place never feels good, and the day that Haynesville lost the state title last season has been motivating the Golden Tornado all year long.  The Tors are now one win away from making back-to-back trips to the Superdome, but that's not hard to believe knowing Haynesville returned all of their starters from last year's team but one.  And these Tors are averaging 47 points per game this season, while their defense hasn't allowed opponents to score more than 19 points in any contest.  But head coach David Franklin frowned at that last stat.

The only obstacle in Haynesville's way from making a return trip will be their biggest challenge of the season to date, playing at Kentwood, which is a place that hasn't been good to Franklin and the Tornado.  

Even Franklin agrees that getting back to Dome is what this season's been all about.  Haynesville has not trailed for one moment all season and hopes to keep it that way in hostile territory Friday night in Kentwood.
