When David Charles drove down the tree-lined road of the St. James campus Thursday afternoon, he couldn’t help but think of 1979. The Wildcats were playing Wossman for the Class 3A state championship. The game wound up 8-8 after regulation. A new overtime rule would decide the outcome. Wossman won the toss and elected to get the ball first. A stout Wildcat defense stopped Wossman on four downs on the possession that began at... Keep Reading

Brandon Brown was East St. John’s man in motion Tuesday afternoon. On the opening day of spring football practice, the Wildcats’ new head coach was bouncing around from work station to work station with boundless energy. “That’s probably the biggest adjustment, coming here from where I was at St. Helena.

Capturing the Class 1A state title has served as sort of a seal of approval of what the West St. John Rams have felt all along. “We always felt we had a target on our back,” said West St. John coach Brandon Walters on the second day of the Rams’ spring practice session on Thursday. “We get the best from everybody. We know we have a target on our backs. Now,... Keep Reading

The Destrehan football helmet could well serve as a theme for the Wildcats in 2018. The familiar Wildcat logo remains but red has given way to gray or silver. Even the Wildcats aren’t quite sure yet. “It’s kind of a combination. I’m not sure; we just picked one that looked good,” Destrehan coach Stephen Robicheaux said during the Wildcats’ third day of spring practice on Monday afternoon.... Keep Reading
