Excuse St. James offensive line coach Ronald Barrilleaux if you see him pinching himself this week. After the 2010 season, he was bypassed as the East St. John head coaching after taking over on an interim basis to close out the season.  He did stay on as the Wildcats offensive coordinator, but when another head coaching change occurred at East St. John at the end of the 2014 season, he was not retained on the staff. ...

A betting man likely would have put money down at the beginning of the year that Lutcher would win a state championship this year when taking into account the Bulldogs were back in Class 3A. Upon realizing Lutcher had a junior quarterback, a betting man likely would have doubled down. That’s because all off Lutcher’s previous state championships have come when the team was in Class 3A. Plus, current quarterback Jontre... Keep Reading

It was a history lesson members of the St. James football team were eager to learn. Prior to Wednesday’s practice in preparation for St. James’ Class 3A state championship game Saturday against rival Lutcher, the Wildcats heard from one of the school’s all-time greats – Keith Falgoust, the quarterback of SJH’s last state championship team in 1979.

Two St. James Parish teams playing for the Class 3A state championship sure has the River Parishes coaches talking. “I think it’s awesome,” St. Charles coach Frank Monica said. “One of the goals is to get to the Superdome and you have two teams not just from the same parish but the same district playing each other. I think that bodes well for River Parish football. “A Lutcher-St. James... Keep Reading

More than one opponent had done a double-take this year when peering into Lutcher’s defensive secondary. Among jersey numbers beginning with a 1, 2 or 3, there is a No. 68 that seems like it doesn’t belong – until people watch Ben St. Pierre play. At that point, the consensus is that he could play anywhere. “He has been Mr. Utility on the defense,” Lutcher coach Tim Detillier said of St. Pierre. &ldquo... Keep Reading

For the first time in a decade Lutcher and St. James played each other on the football field earlier this season, resuming a long but on-and-off-again rivalry. Although it was a one-sided 32-0 win for Lutcher, partisans would be hard-pressed to find something to top the atmosphere surrounding the Week 7 encounter. The topper should come Saturday afternoon with the two St. James Parish high schools meeting in the Superdome in New Orleans in the Class ... Keep Reading
