Location: River Ridge, La.
18-19 Record:
13-0
Final Super 25 Rank: Unranked

Why them: Curtis made up for losing the 2017 title by winning last year and going undefeated in the process. Can they repeat and make this run of excellence more notable?

The team looks set up to be sustainable by keeping much of its core together on both sides of the ball. Quarterback Collin Guggenheim, who led the team in rushing, is back, as is the lead running back, three-star Corey Wren. At receiver, Joel Taylor is now a senior after leading the team in receiving yards and touchdowns, while Javon Davis is now a sophomore after seeing nine games during his freshman campaign.

On the defensive side, Matthew Jayne Jr. returns after leading the team in tackles, as does three-star Angelo Anderson, whose 11 sacks and 19 tackles for loss were the most at John Curtis. Additionally, 2021 three-star cornerback Caleb Spann can lead the secondary entering his junior year with Donte Thomas, who had three interceptions last year. At special teams, kicker Austin Mccready enters his senior year after nailing 90% of his PATs and all nine FG tries.

There are some players who need to be replaced – Donald Clay, Jayden Barfield and Joshua Valentine, to name a few – but John Curtis looks like it has another year in them of dominant play.
