Hurricane Ida devastated Southeastern Louisiana early last week. People have been dealing with damage, flooding, lack of electricity, hunger, thirst, and more as most roads and stores have been shut down. The prospectus has been looking up, and that things will get better, but there may not be electricity for some people for a month. Fortunately, Baton Rouge has electricity for the most part, and that is going to allow us to have football this week in East Baton Rouge Parish, after last week’s games were cancelled.
Belaire High School is back to practicing, preparing for their matchup at home against Northeast High School (Pride, LA). They lost in their Jamboree matchup against Scotlandville High School (Baton Rouge, LA), but there were plenty of things to take away from those 2 quarters. Here is my Coaches Corner with HC Byron Wade, where we talked about what happened in that game and how they can improve, and more:
Weekly Standout: Junior Linebacker Jayden Butler had a couple big tackles in the running game against Scotlandville High School in the Jamboree, and was a bright spot for the team.
Next Game: Northeast High School (Pride, LA) at Belaire High School on Friday, September 10th at 7pm in Baton Rouge, LA.
