HAHNVILLE, LA (WVUE) -

Pooka Williams captivated crowds in the River Parishes for four years at Hahnville. In 2018, it appeared the Tigers shot of making the Dome back-to-back years left with Williams graduation. But that pessimistic outlook changed this summer. Prolific quarterback Andrew Robison transferred from Vandebilt Catholic to Hahnville. The playbook is now revised, and the Tigers outlook for success has shifted upward.

"What Andrew has done more than anything, is made me a better coach," said Hahnville Head Coach Nick Saltaformaggio. "Because now I have to get out of a comfort zone I've been in for 36 years. I'm an old-school, run the football downhill, big offensive lineman, white-knuckle them up, and try to knock you off the ball to win games. Now I have a guy that's a very proficient passer, at a school that has guys on the other end."

"I've had a lot of meetings with Coach Salt and the offensive coordinator, the coaching staff here. We feel like there's going to be some changes. They're not going to change everything. We're definitely going to throw the ball a lot more. Especially with the athletes we have, and me being the quarterback. We can put up a lot of big numbers this year," said Hahnville QB Andrew Robison.

This will not be the first time Salt will guide a gunslinger in his offense. Nearly ten years ago he coached a former LSU Tiger.

"After Katrina I went to Georgia. I walked into Oconee County High School, and Zach Mettenberger was my quarterback. I still ran the football with him. The difference between Andrew and Zach, at Oconee Zach didn't have the receivers to make the big plays on the arm that he has. Andrew does here at Hahnville," said Saltaformaggio.

Robison currently holds offers from Nicholls State and Northwestern State. But with the transfer to Hahnville, and a dynamic offense, more offers should come.

"I think being here will definitely help my recruiting. Having big-time athletes to play around will make me look better," said Robison.
