The LHSAA football season has been full of drama and surprise through two weeks now, but perhaps no story bigger than Parkway’s injury woes.
Panthers teammates Justin Rogers and Terrace Marshall Jr., arguably Louisiana’s top two prospects for the 2018 recruiting class, both suffered notable injuries in a span of just eight days that could have a major impact on the Class 5A landscape.
Jerit Roser and Jordan Burkett discuss this and other storylines in the podcast below, including recaps of Week 2’s biggest games and predictions for Week 3 action.
LSU provided arguably its two or three most impressive offensive plays of the young 2017 season before halftime even arrived in Saturday’s 45-10 rout of Chattanooga.
Senior quarterback Danny Etling capped the Tigers’ first drive with a pair of fakes in the backfield — a handoff to running back Derrius Guice and end-around to wide receiver D.J. Chark — and 36-yard sling on target to a wide-open Drake Davis in the end zone.
After a defensive stand, Etling dropped back on LSU’s next offensive play and heaved the ball deep to Stephen Sullivan, who elevated over two Mocs defenders and hauled in the 46-yard gain.
Even against FCS competition, the two connections with the sophomore Baton Rouge area natives highlighted another potential early-season hint at the revamped offense fans can expect to see under new coordinator Matt Canada.
“I’ve been watching LSU since my ninth-grade year in high school, and I’ve never seen ’em take this many shots,” Sullivan laughed. “We were gonna take whatever the defense gave us. If we would’ve bailed, we would’ve ran it. If they came down, we would throw it over their head. And that’s exactly what we did.”
