Mild surprise

Any other year a West Monroe exit in the second round of the football playoffs would have been a great surprise.

Not this year.

For whatever reason, the Rebels looked vulnerable this year. Maybe it was the turnovers on offense. Maybe it was letting inferior teams hang around with them. But there was something that suggested this wasn't a great West Monroe team.

On Friday night, the Rebels looked the part in a 21-14 loss to Sulphur.

The Rebels will still have some of the state's top prospects in Will Blackwell and Luther Davis. What they won't have is a trip to the Superdome for the state championships.

So if you thought Class 5A was wide open, now you KNOW it's wide open.
