Over the last 8 years Edna Karr football is arguably the most premier program in the state of Louisiana. It’s safe to say they are on their way to becoming the face of the boot, if they haven’t already. From the famous “rock entrance” going viral on social media almost every Friday, to playing in the state championship 7 out of the last 8 years, winning 3 state championships in the last 8 years including back to back (2016 & 2017), to 119 kids signing scholarships on signing day in the last 11 years have put this program in elite company in this state’s history. Also, since 2008 Edna Karr has the most power 5 signees in the state with 20.
It’s been amazing to see the evolution of this program year to year. 23-1 in the last 2 years has been nothing short of fantastic & this team seems to be in great position to win a state championship for the 3rd consecutive year. Head coach Brice Brown & his staff has made it a point of emphasis to their players to not dwell on repeating as state champs and just to trust the process. After getting a inside look into what goes on behind the scenes, it gives you a pretty good perspective to why this program has been so successful.
On Thursday, Edna Karr will take on district rival Warren Easton who is ranked #1 in 4A. Many believe Warren Easton is the only team in the state that can dethrone the Cougars from repeating again this year. It’s no secret Warren Easton has what it takes to not only beat Karr for the district championship, but to hold that trophy up in the dome come December.
With so many former Edna Karr players & coaches on the staff for Warren Easton, it has made the storyline for this game very interesting to say the least. This has become one of the better rivalries throughout the state over the last few years, & I expect a hell of a game on Thursday night in Behrman stadium.
