Lutcher didn’t quite heed the warning of coach Dwain Jenkins and the Bulldogs paid the price with a 36-27 loss to previously winless Parkview Baptist in the District 6-4A opener last week. “I just knew that Parkview was so much better than what maybe people were considering. You are talking about a program that is really consistent and that doesn’t happen to them often with the type of start... Keep Reading

With five, 15-yard penalties in the first half alone, it was far from pretty, but the Hahnville Tigers will take it. What they will take is the 33-7 non-district win over Pearl River last week that snapped a four-game losing streak. While still unable to throw the football, the Tigers found their running game as Hahnville rushed for 329 yards on the ground, with Brandon Comardelle leading the way with 209 yards. “At the end of...

You can’t get caught up looking at their record. They are motivated because they would love to beat a pretty good football team. We... Keep Reading
