The radio AM and FM Honda VW well the count down to. The class three a title game with -- -- via and that will be followed an 830 by the union parish farmers verses Livonia wildcats. Last night it was an exciting time in the Mercedes-Benz superdome some excellent football games and nobody walked out of that superdome feeling like they didn't get their money's worth. I'm always set high school football is one of the best sports bargains available anywhere in the world. And it lived up to its reputation last night joining us now is the head coach when John criticize the new state championship football team earned it last night. JT thanks for joining us. It is about pleasure Doug you can you could join after a game like that you certainly don't look forward to it in -- exactly right it was. He's sort of got your money's -- last night I was able to. Watched Oreo rubble Byrd high school game what do game it came down the wire -- would agree went for probable high school and and their football program and and so it was a extremely pleased with. Our team played in -- Our victory against you in and I know the people at had and are disappointed but the bottom line is there was two teams play in Europe. State championship in their division and one problem and and there's kids need to be proud about accomplish. Absolutely and of course known -- now has to. State championships under its delegates again about sixteen more to go before they catch -- John Curtis. But congratulations to you JT if you would tell us about you know each team every year year FDA. Has a different identity and personality to me about the personality this year is John Kurdistan. What you know there's no. Doubt about that I you know sometimes people get confused about this you know receiving uniforms in the uniforms -- to -- but the people that are in the uniforms are always. Always different and and to be able to blended -- together and to form the team chemistry. And to be holding here the bond together as a unit and to overcome adversity and controversy. All of that is so important and it's certainly Fisher's team exemplified that we we went through a difficult time. As a school back in May when we -- tragic Arab adept with one of our students. And and then we hear surgery to our quarterback in the summer and then. He comes back from that in and and breaks his -- against car which was an excellent football team we have the last sort of lost the same dog and all all those kind of things can just be completely disruptive to a football team and and sometimes can get you start pointing fingers and and blaming other people but. This team bonded together and determined that they were not gonna allow that to happen -- they would keep focused and keep working toward her goal. And it culminated last night in the dole and and it was a team that. It was a pleasure to coach you knew that every time you went out there they were gonna give you great effort. If they're from their heart and and that's the great thing about high school football. It's so pure and it's guys that are just committed to one another. Offer common goal in there and and it's it's exciting that we. You take the field with a new team. You know JT I was notice in the crowd last night and looked a little bit light you have been outspoken on this new playoff system to select in the non select schools. I don't think there's a lot of people happy about having -- play at 430 on Thursday afternoon. Com is there going to be any remedy the situation well the buzz going on about it. You know our particular situation that our our crowd really really kind of came at a little bit late to be honest with you because of what you said the 430. Start -- was very difficult then and I hope it is going to be I. You know all. I don't like to see division anywhere I think one of the things that we've done. As a as a player as -- stated that we've all competed and played together. It didn't make any difference -- it was a urban or suburban way that was -- The weather was black or whether it was white we all played and in the same association that we all competed. Under the same rules and same regulations and and and I think that's so important that we stay united together and and hopefully. Bad in January our principal sit down and rethink this thing in and put us back together so that we can compete. For a true state champion and and I don't mean that negatively and I include myself for and that we. We were not able to compete against every 38. Or 418 interstate ten and that's -- and there aren't I I would. Hope that we will be able to. Do that picture -- -- world felt the same way I mean you know they get. Can teams in their division and and granted they were in good games. But they're not the same teams that they had to travel through and ordered to win a a state championship as they have been -- So hopefully we can put maybe some of our biases behind us and recognize that we need to work together to they have the best product -- -- is never a good -- -- season with a question hanging was this really the state champion and dot. You remember those days they did that -- college football yeah that was one of the reasons we went to the national championship with a computer. Because there was two or three different national championship that always caused. Controversy and and then now we've got to create that same environment in our state.
