Riverside Academy faced a bit of everything early in the Rebels’ final scrimmage Saturday morning to conclude spring practice. Only two plays into scrimmage, the defense came up with a big play on an interception by linebacker Nick Washington. On the next play from scrimmage, the offense responded on an 80-yard touchdown run down the left sideline by running back Chamar Jackson. The offense then marched on a sustained 80-yard drive, including a key... Keep Reading

Unlike most River Parish football teams, the Lutcher Bulldogs opted to end spring practice with an intra-squad scrimmage Thursday rather than face an opponent. “What it did is it gave us time to teach,” Lutcher coach Dwain Jenkins said of no spring game. “What we were able to do on Monday and Tuesday was really slow down and not have to prepare for somebody. We were able to go in and make... Keep Reading

Two old buddies decided to get together to have some fun on the field and decided to bring their teams along. That’s why a River Parish team like Hahnville was taking a team from Mississippi in a spring game Thursday night in Boutte. Nick Saltaformaggio and his Tigers got the best of Eric Collins and his d’Iberville Warriors in both a timed quarter of action and in situational play. Hahnville dominated... Keep Reading

Destrehan showed early in its Spring Game on Wednesday that the Wildcats continue to have quick-strike ability. In a scrimmage that feature Destrehan’s first- and second-team units alternating series against visiting Covington, the Wildcats scored twice in their opening set of 12 plays. Over at West St. John’s three-team scrimmage against Riverdale and KIPP-Booker T. Washington, the Rams scored early as well but it was the WSJ defense that looked rock solid. ... Keep Reading

Before taking the mound in a key District 7-5A matchup at H.L. Bourgeois, Destrehan pitcher Landon Marceaux admitted he was suffering from a headache. By the time the game was over, it was the Braves hitters who who were left scratching their heads as Marceaux pitched his first no-hitter of the season, the third of his career in Destrehan's 1-0 win. "It was just hard work," said Marceaux. "You're not really... Keep Reading

NEW ORLEANS - Someone finally forced Hahnville to throw the football and someone kept Anthony “Pooka” Williams from breaking any highlight reel-type runs. That someone was Zachary and the Broncos are state champs for the second time in three years. Zachary spotted Hahnville an early 7-0 lead but built a 27-7 halftime advantage on its way to a 34-14 victory to capture the Class 5A state title Saturday night at the Superdome. &ldquo...

NEW ORLEANS - Yes, defense still wins championships.

Offense was hard to come by as two championship-caliber defenses squared off. West St. John’s defense actually built the Rams’... Keep Reading

Except for a 26-second span late in the first half, West St. John dominated its Class 1A semifinal game Friday night against visiting Logansport, the defending state champions. Because of that 26-second span, what appeared a likely three-touchdown lead for the Rams at halftime suddenly became a precarious 21-12 edge for West St. John at the break. That gave an even greater urgency to the opening possession of the third quarter. West St. John had... Keep Reading

The legend of "Pooka" just grew exponentially. As if three straight 300+ rushing yard playoff performances hadn't already solidified Hahnville's Anthony "Pooka" Williams as the most dynamic player in the state, his heroics in the 5A State Semifinals which included 212 rushing yards, four more touchdowns (including a 99-yard kickoff return), and a walk-off game-winning two-point conversion led Hahnville into the 5A State Championship Game with a 43-42 overtime win at Acadiana. "All I was... Keep Reading
