Height:

5-feet, 11-inches



Weight:

190 pounds – something like that.

Favorite thing about football:



Just bonding with my family – getting to be around my teammates and my coaches and just having fun with them and practicing together with the hope of accomplishing a common goal.

Best advice ever given by a coach?

That would be to play as a family – play as a team. The advice was to not worry about what’s going on around you when you’re on the field – don’t worry about what college is looking at you or anything like that, just do your job.



Favorite song:

‘Tiger’ by Kevin Gates

Favorite movie:



Remember the Titans

Favorite athlete:

Drew Brees



Why?

Because he doesn’t take no for an answer. He has a fierce work ethic and he’s always willing to work hard to be a better player for both himself and also his teammates. That’s something that I admire about him as a football player.

You’re also a baseball player, correct?



Yes Sir. I play shortstop for our school’s baseball team. That’s another sport that I truly love.

OK then pick one – touchdown pass or home run:

That’s easy – it’s always going to be the touchdown pass. I love baseball, but I just prefer football. That touchdown pass is a feeling unlike anything else. The atmosphere here at Thibodaux High is great. I love home runs, but I love touchdown passes even more.



Goal for the rest of the 2014 football season:

My goal would be to make some noise in the playoffs, leave everything out on the field and from there, see what happens and enjoy how far we can go.

Credentials:



Thibodaux High School senior Peyton Bonvillain is a heck of an athlete – that’s putting it mildly. A standout on the football gridiron and also the baseball diamond, Bonvillain takes pride in playing his sports the right way – with exuberance and energy. On the football field, Bonvillain’s Tigers are currently 8-1 and are one of the top teams in Louisiana throughout all of Class 5A. Bonvillain said the thing he loves the most about being a Thibodaux Tiger is the, “family-like atmosphere present in our school and community.”
