KLFY Athlete of the Week: LCA guard Pierre Dupree

Athlete of the Week

Senior Guard Pierre Dupre plays well for the LCA Knights, so well this team overcame a 16 point deficit in the State Semi-finals vs. Opelousas Catholic.

Coach Errol Rogers says this team picked it up at the right time, something they have been trained to do! 

“They turned it up, and I mean they turned it up!  they understand how to win, and believe it or not, we never thought we were going to lose,” he explains.

Dupre helped cap the turnaround…  hitting a key three-pointer during the 23-0 run.

I’ve been playing with these boys for 4 years now, and when it comes to the fourth quarter we have the heart of a lion,” he says. 

LCA goes for consecutive state championships against Hamilton Christian, on Friday.
