NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Rummel and John Curtis will meet up tomorrow with the Catholic League title on the line. The Patriots and their veer offense have been unstoppable this season. On the other sideline, the Raiders are riding a six-game winning streak.
“They lost a really tough game to Escambia early in the season, but since that time they’ve been on a roll. They’ve played really well defensively. Their offense seems to be getting really into shape. They got some guys back they were out and injured. They’ve gotten back healthy. I expect them to be an explosive team. Obviously they have speed with the (Koy) Moore kid. The (Chandler) Fields boy can throw the ball around pretty good,” said Curtis Head Coach J.T. Curtis.
“You can imagine in college. Teams that play Army and Navy spend one week defending that defense a year. They’ll start in spring, start in the summer. They’ll have one period a week for ten weeks until they play them. Here in high school, you get four weeks, and it’s hard to replicate,” said Rummel Head Coach Jay Roth.
Curtis and Rummel’s campuses are separated by only six miles. They place each other ever year, so there’s no secrets with these squads.
“We’re not far from each other. All the kids know each other. Competed against one another either at recreational level, junior high school. There’s going to be a lot of hype for the ballgame. They’re going to come ready to play. That’s what high school should be about,” said Curtis.
