5-feet, 11-inches


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


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.


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.”
