    How is Amite producing some of the best football players in the country, and who's next?

    Off I-55, around 70 miles from New Orleans sits the little town of Amite. Their top commodity used to be oysters. At it's height, five oyster houses called Amite home. Now there's only one.

First off, De La Salle left the Catholic League years ago, but I'm convinced they could still compete with the storied group of schools. They totally outcoached, and outplayed St. Augustine in a 38-12 victory. Speaking of the Catholic League, Warren Easton is 2-0 going against it, beating Jesuit and Brother Martin handily.

    De La Salle's run to the Superdome ended a week short in 2016, with a Parkview 34-14 win in the semifinals.

    A 4th-and-ten overtime touchdown pass made the name Chandler Fields legendary at Holy Cross. His Tigers would eventually win in double overtime over rival Jesuit thanks to his heroics. Fields couldn't sustain that success his sophomore year, suffering a broken collarbone. Holy Cross' record would suffer in the process, finishing a lackluster 3-8.
