High school football players from river region had their chance to shine at the 1st Annual River Parishes vs. Bayou Parishes All-Star Game at Nicholls State University, but lost 36-20.
The All-Star team included four distinguished Hahnville High School football players, Dustin Ockman - line backer, Jordan Stephany - running back, Early James - quarterback, and Shane Boyle - defensive back.
“We simply underestimated them,” said Ockman. “It’s really easy for the offense because the defense has to stay and cover three guys and couldn’t blitz any linebackers, so the quarterbacks had too much time to throw.”
Boys soccer loaded with firepower
HHS boys soccer team beat East St. John High School 4-2. “The boys’ soccer team is absolutely afire with energy, skill, and teamwork,” said Krystal Coates. Team picture on page 8C.
