Pair of Coaching Veterans Notch 100th Career Wins

In a memorable Friday night showdown, two esteemed football head coaches etched their names in the annals of Louisiana high school football history, each notching their 100th career victory.

Jennings’ gridiron guru, Bret Fuselier, reached this remarkable milestone with a hard-fought 15-14 victory over a determined Iota squad. Fuselier, a fixture in the southwest Louisiana football scene, previously held the reins at Kinder for a decade, where he steered the Yellow Jackets to four appearances in the Prep Classic Championship. These remarkable journeys resulted in two triumphant State Titles and two hard-fought Runner-Up finishes. His prowess on the sidelines was further underscored by his recognition as the 2013 Louisiana Class 2A Coach of the Year and his three-time honor as Southwest Louisiana Coach of the Year.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the football universe, E.D. White’s mastermind, Kyle Lasseigne, also joined the prestigious century club on that same electric Friday night, leading his Cardinals to victory against Thibodaux. Lasseigne has devoted an impressive 15 years to molding E.D. White’s football program, culminating in their first state championship appearance in 40 years in 2021. His tenure has been marked by consistent excellence, with three semifinal appearances in 2009, 2020, and 2022. As if by fate, his 2023 squad stands undefeated and proudly bears the No. 2 ranking in the LSWA prep football polls, a testament to his enduring impact on the team’s legacy.

These two accomplished coaches have proven that success is not just about the number of wins but the lasting influence they have on their players and the communities they serve. Here’s to Coach Fuselier and Coach Lasseigne, celebrating their 100th victories as they continue to inspire the next generation of football stars.


Lafayette Christian’s Ju’Juan Johnson Continuing to Chase History

Lafayette Christian’s senior quarterback, Ju’Juan Johnson, is on the verge of etching his name in the record books. The coveted prize? Evangel’s Brock Berlin’s all-time offensive yardage record, a milestone that has stood since 1999 with an impressive 13,659 yards to his name.

As of now, Johnson has accumulated a remarkable 11,566 career yards of total offense, leaving him just 2,093 yards shy of Berlin’s record. In Friday night’s showdown against Avoyelles, Johnson showcased his prowess, going 11 of 14 in passing for 233 yards and adding 29 yards on the ground with four rushes. More notably, he contributed five touchdowns during the game, underlining his determination to make history.

With five regular season games remaining and the potential for a deep playoff run, Johnson’s quest for the all-time offensive yardage record is in full swing. Will he be able to catch history? Stay tuned as the Knights’ quarterback continues his relentless pursuit, leaving fans and spectators eagerly anticipating the outcome of this historic chase.


Eat. Sleep. Keep The Streak.

In a commanding display of dominance on Friday night, the Destrehan football team continued its impressive winning streak, now standing at a state-best 19 consecutive victories. Their latest triumph, a resounding 49-0 win over H.L. Bourgeois, showcased the Wildcats’ unwavering commitment to excellence on the gridiron.

The last time Destrehan tasted defeat was in a fierce battle against Zachary during the Class 5A playoffs in 2021. Since that pivotal moment, the Wildcats have epitomized resilience and determination, surging ahead with an unmatched winning streak that has become the envy of teams across the state. With their relentless pursuit of victory, Destrehan continues to establish themselves as a powerhouse in Louisiana high school football, leaving an indelible mark on the sport’s history.
