Abbeville, LA (KADN)--  The sound of snapping the football is something the Abbeville Wildcats are even more thankful for as they prepare to face St. Martinville for homecoming.  Monday was only their second practice back with the entire football team.

"South of 14 some kids didn't get power back until Wednesday and some kids not until Saturday,"  Abbeville football coach Roderick Moy said. "We are more thankful for the small things than ever before." 

"We was all over,"  Wildcats senior cornerback Mckinsey Nicholas said.  "Everybody didn't have power so we couldn't get into practice." 

The Wildcats dont' have to look far to find hurricane damage.  Two pieces from the awning off a equipment shed are laying just outside the edge of the practice field. 

"You don't want to discount the opportunity to be able to play because it could be gone in a second,"  Roderick Moy said. 

There are 15 seniors are the team hungry to win their first homecoming in their high school careers.  Friday's game is scheduled at 7pm at Abbeville.
