NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Using one word to describe De La Salle this season is easy: Dominating. The Cavaliers are undefeated at 9-0, outscoring opponents 396-82. But now they need to step up their game to another level, fighting for a district title tonight at Lutcher.

"It's here, and like I told the kids it's one week season. Before we start another three week season in the playoffs," said De La Salle head coach Ryan Manale. "We're blessed with this opportunity. Cannot praise my kids enough, just great kids on and off the field. Players just buying in, and just knowing what De La Salle football is about now."

Last season Lutcher won this matchup 21-12, and took the district 9-3A title. This time around the Cavs are using that loss as motivation.

"We needed to fail last year to succeed. Whatever happens, and whatever the outcome is on Friday, I believe we're a better football team because of what happened last year. Now we're in the same spot, and we're excited about the opportunity," said Manale.

De La Salle doesn't own a state title in football, but with a #1 ranking in Class 3A, they're no doubt thinking about December in the Dome.

"We want to compete for a state championship. That's what we want to do here at De La Salle. We want to win championships," said Manale.

Garland Gillen: De La Salle has made it to one state football championship in football, that was way back in 1960, when they lost to Istrouma.

    Drew Brees is entering his 18th year in the NFL. Which, would usually mean a players career is on the tail end, but for Brees that is not the case. He works out year around, and still has a lot of tread left on those tires. "I think early on you feel like you're pretty invincible you're young, you can wake up every day and go Mach 3 with your hair on fire and you don't really think twice.
