Wrapping up football

The Superdome Classic completed the 2006 high school football season. The Classic had some surprises and some of the same familiar faces.

Few would have expected West Monroe to be absent from New Orleans back in August. But Sulphur took out West Monroe in the playoffs. Sulphur, though, couldn't hold a fourth-quarter lead and Acadiana, last year's runner-up, won the 5A title.

Bastrop won as expected in Class 4A. This year the Rams will get to keep the trophy - we think.

But Bastrop wasn't alone in the dog-bites-man category. John Curtis rolled through Class 2A. And Evangel came back in the second half to win in Class 1A.

Lutcher's championship in Class 3A wrapped up another year of football.

It may not have been the greatest year for high school football in the state, but it wasn't the worst either.
