When you are 0-4, the negatives may be easy to spot. The positives, on the other hand, are a bit harder to find. In East St. John’s most recent loss – a 34-21 defeat at H.L. Bourgeois last Friday in the District 7-5A opener, the Wildcats never punted the football. Of course, not punting the football could come from turning the ball over, something the Wildcats have done a lot of... Keep Reading

The East St. John Wildcats learned facing a team like John Ehret while playing poorly on offense is not a very good combination. The Patriots rushed for almost 300 yards while the Ehret defense came up with eight sacks, leading to a 30-0 domination of the 0-2 Wildcats last Friday. “We played the worst game offensively that we could pick to play. But from the same time, you go from there and you learn from... Keep Reading
