6. STM-TEURLINGS REMATCH
When the Oct. 23 date rolls around, both coaching staffs will likely try to downplay the significance of this latest edition of Teurlings Catholic vs. St. Thomas More.
Good luck with that this fall.
It began as a game the Rebels would soon want to forget when St. Thomas More jumped all over its crosstown Catholic school counterparts to the tune of a 43-17 lead with 5:50 left in the third period.
Amazingly, however, coach Sonny Charpentier’s club refused to yield. Instead of packing it in and saving their energy for the next week, Teurlings responded with most likely the best comeback win in the history of the Acadiana area.
Teurlings outscored STM 39-3 over the final quarter and a half of football on the road to defeat the Cougars 56-46 on its way to an undisputed District 5-4A championship.
Back are both starting quarterbacks in Cole Kelley of Teurlings and STM’s William Bellamy.
You can bet coach Jim Hightower’s Cougars are counting down the day to this rematch.
And so are big high school football fans everywhere.

NO. 4: Leonard Fournette
