This match-up between Jesuit and Holy Cross game is one of the most highly talked about rivalry games in the state of Louisiana every year. This was the 97th annual match up between the two schools and was promised to be another good one. Pregame festivities started that day with a morning assembly at Jesuit High where they had a couple different speakers for all of their students to listen to in their courtyard right before school started. They also had the Great American Rivalry Series trophy shown off to the students and players by SSG Collin Guidry which seemed to spark their flame for the proceeding events that night.
