Parkway injury woes headline LHSAA storylines entering Week 3 | Jerit and The Kid

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.

Saturday’s highly anticipated debut of LSU’s new-look offense came and went with 17 pass attempts, 173 passing yards and 27 points against BYU.

The once-again ground-dominant attack’s statistics, which missed the Tigers’ 2016 scoring average, fell shy of at least some vocal fans’ lofty expectations for “Air Canada.”

“(Canada) was fantastic,” LSU coach Ed Orgeron said. “He was on fire tonight. But that’s what I’ve seen is just what happened. You saw what our defense looked like tonight, and there are some days that we can not stop him. And I know he has some more things that he wants to get better at, obviously, but I thought he did a great job of managing the whole offensive staff.
