Jesuit 37, Holy Cross 0 (9/9/11)

September 10, 2011

by Leah Little

The oldest rivalry in the state of Louisiana played since 1922 means so much to both of these schools. Both schools were deeply affected by Katrina and have managed to rebuild and continue their rivalry. The day began with pep rallies at both schools followed by a huge tailgate party and parade. Fans were geared up for this annual battle and began arriving at the stadium hours before kick off to party and tailgate.

From the beginning, Holy Cross was never really in the game. Lots of turnovers, fumbles and interceptions cost dearly as Jesuit dominated the entire game. The Tigers lead ever quarter and just kept pouring it on for a final score of 37-0. Debo Jones was named MVP for the Blue Jays.
