One of my favorite games... ever


Recommended Posts

and maybe for some of you youguns, something you've never seen.  This is good old fashioned smash mouth football.  It is the 1996 LA 5A semifinal game between Catholic Baton Rouge and West Monroe.  Catholic featured Travis Minor (Florida State) and Major Applewhite (Texas), they came in undefeated and ranked # 10 in the country.  West Monroe had Tommy Banks (LSU) and were big underdogs.  Both teams had legendary coaches that ended with over 300 wins, Dale Weiner for Catholic and Don Shows for West Monroe

Worth a watch
