Northwood's Jim Gatlin is Superior Coach of the Week Sept 27, 2013!

Superior Grill,Northwood High School,Friday Football Frenzy,2013,Sept 29,Coach of the Week

Northwood High School's head football coach Jim Gatlin 
has pulled his team back up by the boot straps after losing starting quarterback Jerrick Peterson in the first half of the season opener.  They outmanned North Caddo in that season opener, but struggled in a 13-10 loss to Shreve the next week. 

With his team at a crossroads Gatlin and his staff guided the Falcons to a 62-6 win over Bossier.  Labeled a district favorite prior to the season opener, the Gatlin Gang righted their ship restoring the confidence among the Falcon faithful! 

Congratulations Coach Gatlin, for winning Superior Coach of the Week. This puts you in the running for coach of the year!

Captain Shreve's Richard Lary is Superior Coach of the Week Sept 20, 2013

Captain Shreve High School's head football coach Richard Lary...
and his Gator defense showed up big against Northwood, limiting the talented Falcons to 10 points.  The Gator's pulled out a thrilling 13and 10 win on Andrew Doughty's game winning field goal! 

The Gator's defense has proven they will be competitive all four quarters, every Friday night! When they find some offensive dynamite, even the Swap People won't be able to contain this rough and rowdy crew! 

Congratulations Coach Lary, for winning Superior Coach of the Week. This puts you in the running for coach of the year!

Loyola Coach Alan Carter is the Superior Coach of the Week!

Week 1 Top 10 Poll

There was a little movement in our Top 10 Poll... and that's what to expect from preseason to first game results. 

Parkway dominated Calvary in week one, much to the surprise of most of us who had the Cavaliers tabbed as the number 6 team in the preseason.

This week's Top 10, as voted on my various media members in Shreveport:

Rank     School                        Votes                   Last Week
  1.         Parkway                     (79)                        1
  2.         Byrd                           (70)                        3
  3.         Haughton                   (54)                        4
  4.         Evangel                      (49)                        2
  5.         Airline                        (48)                        5
  6.         Northwood                 (43)                        7
  7.         Loyola                        (23)                       NR
  8.         Calvary                       (19)                       6
  9.         Mansfield                    (16)                       NR
10.         Green Oaks                 (13)                       NR
Also receiving votes: Captain Shreve (6), North DeSoto (4), Southwood (3), Minden (2), Bossier (2), North Webster (2).
Dropped Out: North DeSoto (7th last week), Bossier (9th last week) and North Webster (10th last week).

The poll was voted on prior to Thursday night's Loyola win over Green Oaks. The Giants have one big supporter among the media members...someone ranked G.O. 3rd! 

Parkway has thoroughly impressed every voter except for one, who has the Panthers ranked 2nd. 

The biggest mover this week is Loyola who appears in the Top 10 for the first time at #7. Byrd inched up one spot from 3rd to 2nd after blowing Zachary out of the water.
