When Pointe Coupee Central was closed over the summer by the Pointe Coupee School Board, St. Edmund was forced to find another opponent. That did not happen, so the Blue Jays have an open date Friday before taking on False River Academy on Oct. 31.
With a 48-0 win to open District 4-4A play, the Bobcats are sitting atop the standings while this week’s opponent is still searching for their first win. But Eunice High (3-1, 1-0) head coach Paul Trosclair pointed out that Washington Marion’s record doesn’t tell the whole story.

Benefit Gumbo tickets available now. Benefit, with proceeds for Coach Trosclair, is scheduled for Nov. 11 at 6 p.m. at Northwest Community Center.

Eunice High’s “Pay IT Forward” Club is gearing up for its different fundraisers and activities. One is to help the school’s head football coach Paul Trosclair. Trosclair, recently diagnosed with Multi-Myeloma, a rare blood-plasma cancer, travels from time to time for treatments at MD Anderson in Houston, Texas.

Benefit Gumbo tickets available now. Benefit, with proceeds for Coach Trosclair, is scheduled for Nov. 11 at 6 p.m. at Northwest Community Center.
