Purple Knights News · The Marching 100 to appear in the 2017 Bayou Classic Parade

Bayou Classic Parade Moved to Game Day: Saturday, November 25, 9:30 a.m. 

The Marching 100 is set to participate in the parade opening the 44th Annual 2017 Bayou Classic. This year’s annual Bayou Classic parade will be held Saturday, November 25 at 9:30 am. While it traditionally takes place on Thanksgiving Day, Parade Director, Jon Kardon, says it has been moved to the same day as the game to build momentum throughout the day.

The change in date is expected to increase excitement and crowd size, as well as get parade goers in a “Bayou Classic state of mind.” In 2016, nearly 80,000 attendees flocked to the streets of Downtown NOLA to witness the spectacle and this year, the attendance is expected to be bigger and better.

The route will begin at N. Peters Street and Elysian Fields and end at Loyola and Perdido.

Performing will be 14 “cream of the crop” high school marching bands, such as New Orleans’ own St. Augustine High School, McKinley High School’s Big Blue Machine from the East Baton Rouge Parish, the U.S. Marine Corps Band and the drum line from Dr. MLK Jr. Early College, native to Denver, Colorado. There will also be bands featured from Maryland and Georgia. Bayou Classic sponsors, including Cricket Wireless, will have floats in the parade as well as local organizations such as the mentorship program, Son of a Saint.

Kardon says he “works very closely with the New Orleans Police Department from the beginning [of the parade] to the execution.” He ensures that the force is active in the route planning, highly aware, and “very vigilant.” He is confident in their ability to protect and eradicate impending disruptions.

In fact, he believes there’s no better police force to navigate parade festivities and enforce safety measures. The goal of the Bayou Classic parade is to experience family-oriented fun. Kardon hopes to eventually have “the largest collection of marching bands in the city.” He believes he already has the best bands participating each year and looks forward to showcasing their talent as well as inspiring future, aspiring musicians.

CCS offers live streams of Jesuit-Holy Cross, St. Augustine-Brother Martin matchups

The action starts Friday with the 98th renewal of Louisiana’s oldest prep football rivalry between Jesuit and Holy Cross at Tad Gormley Stadium. The live stream on CCS begins at 7 p.m. with kickoff at 7:15.

The Blue Jays (1-3) and Tigers (2-2) have alternated hoisting the Golden Football for the last five years, with Jesuit blanking Holy Cross 38-0 last season.

Jesuit features a balanced attack with the passing of quarterback Alex Watermeier, who has six touchdown passes on the season, and the running of Michael Torry and Willie Robinson, who have combined for 378 yards.

Holy Cross’ offense leans more toward the run, with nearly 70 percent of its snaps on the ground. Landen Bates has accounted for 430 rushing yards and six touchdowns.

Lenny Vangilder and Terrence Jones will describe the action of Friday’s matchup.

On Saturday, CCS will have a live stream of the Gentilly rivalry between St. Augustine (3-1) and Brother Martin (1-3), also at Gormley. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.

St. Augustine running back Garland LaFrance, a Texas Tech commitment, has accounted for 257 total yards and three touchdowns. The Brother Martin offense is led by quarterback John-Paul Pierce, a returning starter who has thrown for 593 yards.

Last year, the Purple Knights rallied for a 24-18 victory on a last-second punt return.

The St. Augustine-Brother Martin game will be simulcast on WGSO 990 AM.

The other District 9-5A rivalry matchup of the weekend between Archbishop Shaw (0-4) and Archbishop Rummel (3-0) from Joe Yenni Stadium at 2 p.m. Saturday will also air on WGSO. Ken Trahan will handle the play-by-play of both Saturday games.

The Rummel offense, led by quarterback Chandler Fields and wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase, has scored 79 points and accounted for 1,026 yards the last two weeks. Fields has thrown for 11 touchdowns in three games season.

Shaw, under first-year head coach Tommy Connors, lost its district opener to Holy Cross last weekend.

Multiple Teams · St. Aug football game vs. McDonogh 35 moved to Sunday

The St. Augustine High School football team’s season opener against McDonogh 35 on Friday night was rescheduled for 5 p.m. on Sunday, September 3.  Possible bad weather and street flooding in the Greater New Orleans area related to Tropical Storm Harvey forced the move.

St. Aug and McDonogh 35 were scheduled to play on Friday, September 1. However, due to the potential impact of the remnants of Tropical Storm Harvey on New Orleans and the surrounding area, the game will be played on Sunday rather than Friday night.

Kickoff is at 5 p.m., on Sunday, September 3, at Tad Gormley Stadium.
