Rich Winters: Can Creighton Lebeau Lead Ceb Football To The Playoffs?

By Rich Winter

3c3494764f4da9a4d43ee28d4a390aa5When the Cheyenne Eagle Butte football team takes the field at Red Cloud on Friday, they will be looking to get off to a fast start over a Red Cloud team that lost a lot of seniors from a year ago.

Fast start, shouldn’t be a problem for a team that looks like it is loaded with athletes. Among those athletes is 6-foot-4 senior, Creighton LeBeau.

Now, we all know LeBeau for his basketball abilities, but if he can translate half of that to the football field, the Braves should be in great shape.

As I’m looking down that roster, I’m seeing a deep team that is laden with senior talent. All told, 15 seniors dot the roster and that should bode well for the Braves getting off to a good start.

Senior Rardy Anderson returns at QB.

The offensive line looks solid with big-boy seniors, Dillon DuPree, Remi Beautiful Bald Eagle, Kirby Peterson, Kody Red Fox and Joseph Lawrence and Joseph Balderas among those who will be competing for starting time on what should be a good line.

Running backs Dominic Emery and Trenton Clark, both seniors will handle the bulk of the carries for the Braves.
