Glenbrook looks to build upon previous strong season
District 1-1A was already a best of a district, loaded with perennial and multiple state championship programs.
It is even better now with a recent addition.
The Glenbrook Apaches finished 8-2 last season, scoring significant wins over Lincoln Prep and state semifinalist and traditional power Haynesville. The Apaches won their last six games of the season but were not eligible for the playoffs as a first-year program in the LHSAA.
This season, Glenbrook is eligible to compete in the postseason.
David Feaster returns in his third year as head coach.
Feaster has a ton of experience, having served as the head coach previously at Many (1996-2003), D’Arbonne Woods, Minden (2004-2006), Sabine, TX (2007), Leesville (2009-2010) and Parkway (2011-2017).
At Minden, Feaster took over a program which had recorded 15 consecutive losing seasons and proceeded to turn it around with three straight winning seasons, including a 13-1 record in 2006.
At Parkway, Feaster posted an impressive 64-12 record while winning or sharing three district titles.
Feaster joined the Glenbrook program as offensive coordinator in 2018 and became head coach in 2020. Glenbrook transitioned to becoming an LHSAA program in 2021 from the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools, where it competed previously.
Overall, Feaster has posted a record of 123-65.
The Apaches compete in a very tough District 1-1A, which includes powers in Calvary Baptist, Haynesville and defending Class 1A state champion Homer, along with Arcadia, Lincoln Prep, Plain Dealing, Ringgold and Magnolia School of Excellence.
Fortunately, Glenbrook has a slew of returning players from a year ago, including 10 on offense and nine on defense.
Senior Hayden Harmon (6-0, 193) is the returning punter while junior Ty Feaster (6-2, 167) returns as the kicker for the Apaches. Senior Maddox Mandino (5-8, 156) is returning a solid return specialist. Harmon is a 6-1, 193 pound senior. Feaster is 6-2, 167 pounds.
An outstanding lineman on the offensive of side of the ball returning is senior Luke Vining (6-1, 220), who will anchor the front.
Top receivers returning are senior Cason Clemons (5-9 159) and senior Turner Mclelland (6-3 ,180).
Senior DJ Carter (5-11, 194) returns at running back to carry the load.
Harmon heads the list returning on defense at middle linebacker as a two-way performer. Senior Rhett Johnson (5-9, 168) is also back at linebacker. Otis Kent (5-9, 157) returns in the secondary.
Glenbrook will open up playing in the Battle On Border Saturday, September 3 against a very strong and senior-laden Cedar Creek team. A trip to Bossier follows before a home game with Delta Charter.
District play opens on Sept. 23 at home against Haynesville, followed by another home game with Arcadia. The Apaches then travel to Magnolia School of Excellence, Ringgold and Plain Dealing. District play concludes on Oct. 28 at home against Homer. The season finale is a non-district contest with River Oaks at home.
With an experienced team and a proven veteran coach who has produced winners in many locales, opponents certainly cannot sleep on Glenbrook in 2022.
