Sterlington (12-2) is back in the championship mix for the first time since 2003.
In his fourth season as the head coach, Jason Thompson will face their biggest test this season in Madison Prep (14-0).
Despite the challenge ahead, everyone around Pantherland are simply thrilled to make the trek to New Orleans this weekend, to display their talents.
Thompson says, “…We showed up back at work on Monday and challenged [the team] to get better individually, and as a team. Progressively, over the last eight or nine weeks we’ve done that, put ourselves in a position to play for the big one. And, I’m pretty excited about it.”
Semaj Colvin, who’s been a star on the defensive side of the ball says, “I didn’t think we’d make it this far. We have a team full of guys that are going to lead and keep their team up when times get tough, and that’s what we’ve showed this year, to keep your head up and keep fighting. And, look where we’ve made it.”
“…I figured after Coach Thompson met with us, we had a pretty good shot of getting back together and blocking everybody out that doubted us, and just blocked them out,” says quarterback Carson Clowers. “I think we have a pretty good shot.”
