It took longer to prepare to postgame jambalaya Wednesday than it did for Lutcher’s intra-squad scrimmage to close spring practice. Some spring games can take longer than a regular-season game but the Bulldogs made quick work of things by finishing up their scrimmage in less than 90 minutes. “I just thought we got enough possessions in and didn’t want to risk any injuries. Injuries happen when kids get tired. We just... Keep Reading

The goals for Thursday’s spring game against visiting Terrebonne seemed to work pretty well for Frank Monica and his St. Charles Comets. “I went into the scrimmage thinking I really wanted to work on our passing game,” Monica said. “If you can’t protect it, though, it doesn’t matter if the routes are open or not. I think we protected pretty good, for the most part.” ... Keep Reading

With both teams playing without their starting running backs, Destrehan’s spring game at Covington on Wednesday was a low-scoring affair. Destrehan’s younger runners had the better outing as Kyle Edwards and Ed’Juan Green scored the only two touchdowns in the controlled portion of the spring game while neither team scored in a 15-minute quarter to conclude the evening. “We made too many mistakes for a spring game. The... Keep Reading

It may only be spring but it looks like West St. John already has found the latest in the long line of workhorse running backs. Nico Davis powered his way to 149 yards on 20 carries as the Rams defeated McMain 21-8 in West St. John spring game Saturday in Edgard. “We definitely have a next-man-up philosophy here and he’s been tearing it up this spring. Our guys don’t want to tackle... Keep Reading

It may appear that when you are a two-time defending state champion, you can start practice as late as you want to. That may have seemed like the case for Lutcher’s football team but there was more to it than just a late debut for the 2017 Bulldogs. “We were just trying to make sure we just had as many guys here as possible,” said Dwain Jenkins, who is conducting his second...

April showers, May flowers and Frank Monica conducting practice as a high school football coach are sure signs that spring has arrived. Monica and his St. Charles Catholic Comets were back at it Monday afternoon with the start of spring practice. “We were sluggish but we threw a lot at them, so that was to be expected,” Monica assessed. “We need to correct that because we will only get eight or nine...

It’s great,” the fourth-year Hahnville coach said during the Tigers’ opening day of spring football practice. It was easy to confuse the seasons Thursday.

Third-year coach Alden Foster liked what he saw of his East St. John squad on the Wildcats’ first day of spring football practice Monday afternoon. “You like to see the kids competing,” Foster said. “We are young but we are competing. There are some licks being blown but that’s the result of the weight room and the kids being confident in knowing the system.” The Wildcats were enthusiastically... Keep Reading

A couple of things were different during West St. John’s opening day of spring football practice Thursday afternoon. “I’m excited to be back here with (the Rams players) with the ‘smell of the turf,’” said West St. John coach Brandon Walters. In past years, the start of spring allowed the Rams to “smell the grass.” During spring practice last season, the team’s field... Keep Reading
