Bowl season opens Saturday with the Celebration Bowl’s noon kickoff.

Mark Clements and Jerit Roser will, of course and as always, dive into specific analysis and breakdown of LSU’s next matchup, in this case a Citrus Bowl date with Notre Dame.

Recapping 2017 LHSAA football state championships | Coach Talk

Another LHSAA football season concluded this weekend with an exciting Prep Classic in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Zachary, Catholic-Baton Rouge, Edna Karr, University Lab, West Feliciana, Catholic-New Iberia, Welsh, Lafayette Christian and West St. John finished the fall as champions, with story lines abound.

Smaller school games were the closest of the select/nonselect era, including a Lafayette Christian shutout for title No. 1 and four West St. John interceptions to return the Rams to glory.

Catholic-New Iberia shocked much of the state.

Welsh started fast for its first-ever championship, while West Feliciana pulled away in the third quarter for its own.

U-High completed a dominant season with a strong case as the state’s top team regardless of classification.

Catholic and Zachary proved a year ahead of many people’s expected timelines to win their second titles in the past three years.

And perennial power Edna Karr finally went back-to-back.

Jerit Roser and Woodlawn-Baton Rouge safeties coach Brent Broussard, a Jennings alumnus in his eighth year with the Panthers, recap all the action, including top players and a slight look ahead to the next level for some top prospects and next season for the new defending champions.
