The quiet town of Minden in Northern Louisiana just might have the best kept secrets in the State in Glenbrook Quarterback Regan Edwards. Glenbrook School recently moved up to class 2-A in the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools (MAIS). Head Coach Greg Tibbitt and Assistant Coach James Thurman have the luxury of having a four-year starter under center to help with the transition.

Prior to Edwards transferring to Glenbrook, he played for rival Riverdale Academy near Coushatta, Louisiana his 9th & 10th grade years which I am sure makes the Glenbrook versus Riverdale match up even that more interesting.

During his freshman year at Riverdale, Edwards started at Quarterback and played well enough to grab the attention of opposing district coaches to win All District despite the team’s 1-9 record. Edwards sophomore year started off bumpy to say the least. Riverdale moved up from 1-A to 2-A then before the season’s jamboree, Edwards torn his ACL in practice. After consulting with his family and Doctor, Edwards played the season despite the injury. Edwards improved his stats even with a completely torn ACL and won All District Honorable Mention. Edwards passed for over 1500 yards and accounted for 20 touchdowns that season.



Edwards has had an even bigger season then he had last season as a junior. Last season Edwards threw for almost 3100 yards and accounted for 44 touchdowns while winning District 3-1A Offensive MVP and making the Fab 15. Edwards lost top Wide Out Maurice Moore who transferred to Lakeside High School but Glenbrook did pick up a stud Wide Out, Arthur Jones from Booker T. Washington High School in Shreveport, Louisiana. Edwards said “Arthur is the best wide receiver I have ever played with. He has great hands and is very strong. With Arthur and the addition of several other new players plus the returning players, we have a chance to be special.”

This season, Edwards currently has over 3,500 yards and 49 total Tds while completing over 68% of his passes. Edwards has helped lead Glenbrook to a 7-3 regular season record and as co-district champs in district 3-AA with rivals River Oaks and Riverfield. Glenbrook beat River Oaks in the first round of the playoffs this past Friday to avenge one of their 3 losses on the regular season. Edwards went 22 for 34 for 311 yards and 3 passing Tds, he also carried the ball 19 times for 121 yards and 2 Tds.

With the win it sets up a 2nd round playoff game against Adams County Christian School (ACCS). The matchup will allow Edwards and the Glenbrook Apaches to try to avenge another loss from the regular season.
