CTK: Junior leaders enter spotlight at ASH

By  | 

ALEXANDRIA (KALB) -- It was a big summer for ASH stars Jacobian Guillory and Bud Clark. After a solid showing on defense as sophomore last season, the duo followed that up with successful summer camp showings. After picking up numerous scholarship offers, including LSU, both now get set to enter their junior seasons with lofty expectations lifted on their shoulders.

The good news for the Trojans, both Guillory and Clark want that added pressure. In fact, they crave it.

Just ask Clark who, despite having carved out his niche as a dominant safety for two seasons, did not hesitate when head coach Thomas Bachman came to him about potentially moving over to quarterback for 2018. And now, Clark is taking more reps under center than he is on defense and loving every minute of it.

For those that are just assuming this is the usual case of putting a team's best athlete at quarterback, think again, Clark has the arm and looks the part.

Meanwhile, Guillory continues to be an opposing offensive line's worst nightmare, he'll anchor an athletic defense that Bachman believes will be the real strength of this team.

It's a team that is doing everything it can to work it's way into the conversation of District 2-5A contenders with West Monroe and Ouachita.

The work towards reaching that goal begins with a tough task as Ferriday comes to Butch Stoker Stadium on August 31.
