The Karr Cougars are Class 4A champions once again.
Aldon Clark tossed three touchdowns to lead the Cougars to a 34-21 victory over No. 1 Neville on Saturday in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Neville defeated Karr, 45-26, in the championship game last year.
"My guys came out and executed. Hats off to them, but we're going to celebrate for 365 days. It feels good. We're bringing it back home to 3332 Huntlee Drive," Karr coach Brice Brown said.
Clark, who was named Most Outstanding Player, passed for 215 yards and ran for 74.
Karr has been in the 4A championship game six of the last seven years, but the last time the Cougars won was 2012, a 29-22 win over Neville, when Jabbar Juluke was the head coach.
"When you get wins like this, it makes it feel even better that the guys sacrifice and do the right things and stay off the streets and just play ball. We live in the city in which so many things can make us look right or left so when we get guys that keep guys straight and follow that path, you can't be prouder."
