One of the most spectacular games of the 2021 football season was the LHSAA Class 4A Championship game.
Westgate’s defense was stuck on their own one-yard line with 3:02 to go. The Tigers have stopped Warren Easton four times in a row to win the program’s first LHSAA football championship.
This thrilling victory set the stage for Westgate to claim the Louisiana Sports Writers Association Class 4A All-State Team honors.
Quarterback Jordan Doucet was voted best offensive player, while defensive back Derek Williams took top defensive player honors for the Tigers. Ryan Antoine of Westgate was named Coach of the Year for the team selected by a panel of sports journalists from across the state.
Westgate, the No.5 seed in the Class 4A playoffs, was a big underdog but ousted No.1 seed Edna Karr in the semifinals and then beat third seed Easton in the game for the title.
Doucet had 1,686 passing yards, 1,176 rushing, 204 receptions and 32 total touchdowns this season. He also contributed as a wide catcher and was a dynamic threat as a runner.
Williams, a four-star rookie according to 247Sports Composite, had 145 tackles and 14 lost tackles at the end of the year. The junior’s versatility and defensive prowess led a unit that kept Edna Karr and Warren Easton at the lowest point-per-game totals of the season.
