Eric Mouton dropped some news on Bumper to Bumper Sports with Ben Love when he joined the program on Tuesday. The Ascension Episcopal Blue Gators basketball head coach talked about a bevy of topics, including his son Eli Mouton.
Eli, who followed in his father’s footsteps and joined the Louisiana Ragin Cajuns basketball program as a walk-on, will be transferring over to LSU-Eunice to play for Byron Starks’ program according to his father. Mouton appeared in only five games his freshman season, averaging 0.2 points and an assist per game after being a three-year starter for the Blue Gators.
Starks was previously the head coach at Lafayette Christian Academy which played in 7-1A, the same district as Ascension Episcopal. The Bengals opened up their inaugural season as a program with a 14-15 record.
Eli may be leaving the program, but according to Eric Mouton, he is not leaving on a sour note and handled the situation the right way.
Listen to the full interview for a lot of great insight from one of the premier high school coaches in the Acadiana area.
