NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Karr still holds the top spot after avenging last year’s loss to De La Salle. Ehret reenters the rankings after beating Destrehan, 37-35.

1. Karr

Last year, De La Salle beat Karr at Tad Gormley. Last Friday, the Cougars got payback at Behrman, running all over the Cavs, 34-7.

2. Warren Easton

The Eagles continue to impress by beating Class 5A powers three weeks into the season. Jesuit, Brother Martin, and Landry-Walker all found out the hard way Easton is primed for a trip to the Dome in Class 4A.

3. John Curtis

The Patriots sit at 3-0, and are finally getting healthy. Quarterback Collin Guggenheim returned last week to help Curtis beat Parkview, 21-0.

4. John Ehret

The Patriots pulled out the most eye-opening performance of week 3, beating previously unbeaten Destrehan, 37-35. Ehret quarterback Travis Mumphrey accounted for 5 touchdowns in the win.

5. Terrebonne

The Tigers continue to dominate schools in the Bayou Parishes. The latest victim, Assumption, 41-6.

6. Destrehan

Yes, the Wildcats did suffer their first loss of 2018, but they’re still one of the most talented teams in the state. With John Emery, Jr. toting the rock, anything is possible for Destrehan.

7. Holy Cross

Goodness, the Tigers really put it to Chalmette last Friday to the tune of, 35-7. Holy Cross possesses a dynamic offense, and a defense that could stand with any squad in the Catholic League.

8. Lakeshore

The Titans haven’t lost a regular season contest since 2016. Honestly don’t know when the streak will stop, Lakeshore is that good.
