We capitalized on two or three of them and turned them into points. We are going to win... Keep Reading

By William Weathers Destrehan football coach Stephen Robicheaux acknowledged the inevitable: He’s not looking forward to the school’s commencement exercises in May. That’s when it will become official when after a span of 12 years; Robicheaux won’t have the luxury of coaching a member of the football-playing Jefferson family when the youngest – Justin – graduates. “It’s going to be hard seeing that,” Robicheaux...

Opening District 9-3A with lesser opponents in the league has Lutcher coach Dwain Jenkins trying to impart lessens of a different sort to his Bulldogs. In a 56-13 win a week ago against McMain, the Bulldogs scored to final 36 points of the game to pull away. A total of 14 penalties and two long interception returns for touchdowns helped to keep the game close for awhile. “We only had four possessions in the first... Keep Reading

The Comets held on for an 18-12 road win and Monica was back evaluating tape in his office the following day. “It was a huge win... Keep Reading

The St. James Wildcats did what was expected a week ago in a 44-0 home win over overmatched Clark in the District 9-3A opener. “We left the game healthy and we were able to get some quality reps. Even when you watch film and you know that you are a much better team, you have to respect the game of football. We were able to do that. I was pleased with that,”... Keep Reading

Sheldon and Leonard from The Big Bang Theory aren’t likely to spend their time looking over game film of the first half of Hahnville’s last three seasons, but if they did, they might compare it to a time warp sequence out of Star Trek or The Twilight Zone. The previous two years, Hahnville opened with wins over Woodlawn and Patterson, followed by losses to Riverside Academy, Destrehan and St. Thomas More.... Keep Reading

Two wins in four games sounds a whole lot better to East St. John coach Alden Foster than two wins in 10 games. Something else sounds pretty nice as well. “It feels good to be 1-0 in district. To be able to come out and run the ball last week like we did to set up the pass was tremendous, especially when you have your third-string quarterback,” Foster said. In his first year as...

When Destrehan lost starting quarterback Kohen Granier late in the first half with a knee injury and its 14-0 halftime lead by the third quarter, the Wildcats’ long regular-season winning streak and its recent domination over rival Hahnville seemed to be in trouble last Friday. The Wildcats held things together behind sophomore quarterback J.R. Blood, who led the Wildcats on a late drive that included several third-down conversions to pull out a hard-fought 3...
