Lutcher quarterback Ruston Matherne, this week's New Orleans VooDoo Athlete of the Week, is having a stellar season and career.
Matherne is in the midst of a stellar season. He has accounted for 24 touchdowns, 13 throwing, 11 running. Matherne played significant minutes as a sophomore, but he really blossomed midway thru his junior season.
"We went back and checked," says Lutcher head coach Tim Detillier. "That is what happened with Dustin Mitchell, that's what happened with Blaine Gauthier, it happened with Gavin Webster, and this time it happened with him. As he goes, we go."
"I see the game a whole lot better, I know what to do what to expect, and it just worked out for me," explains Matherne.
Matherne has accounted for 5,000 plus yards and 81 touchdowns in his Lutcher career.
Matherne comes from a long line of Bulldogs. His father, Taylor, and grandfather, Durel, both played at Lutcher. Durel was a quarterback on the 1958 LSU national champions.
