BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - Last season was a dream season for the Byrd football team until West Monroe made it a nightmare in the state quarterfinals. They handed Byrd their first loss of the year and ended their season.
Head coach Mike Suggs is entering his 18th year as the head man. That number 18 is significant, that's also how many starters Byrd lost at the end of last year. Just 2 returning on each side of the ball.
They do return Deuce Caston at quarterback who now gets a full year under center after starting 7 games last year in place of the injured Tyler Howard. No more Dominic Haggerty at running back. Trey Allen returns to the backfield after tearing his ACL last season.
Byrd opens the season at Barbe September 4th.
