Porter’s Chapel Academy football players Ty Mack and Taylor LaBarre feel destined greatness in 2023 and are pumped up about the upcoming season.
Mack was a dominate force in 2022 where he helped lead PCA to the second round of the playoffs. He finished the year with 507 rushing yards, five rushing touchdowns, 277 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns.
“My stats wasn’t the best but I’ve been working hard this summer and I’m ready to show everyone the outcome,” Mack said.
With multiple players returning from last year, Mack feels that the Eagles will do big things this year.
“I know we’re going to go undefeated for the first five games and that’ll give us the confidence to keep fighting and win the rest,” Mack said.
Mack is a senior this year and is a member of the basketball team.
LaBarre starred at wide receiver and in the secondary last year where he compiled 25 catches, 272 receiving yards, one receiving touchdown, 57 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown.
“I feel pretty good about last year and I have some big games but I’m looking to do more this year,” LaBarre said.
LaBarre set the school record last year for most catches in a game with 11 receptions for 133 yards yards against Prairie View Academy. He still feels that PCA has more to prove in 2023.
“We’re aiming to win more games and go deeper in the playoffs and we’re going to do whatever it takes to get there,” LaBarre said.
