‘Them or Us:’ Building for Number 2 Zachary, Scotlandville has become part of the fabric 4-5A | High school sports


When asked to face Scotlandville, Zachary’s coach David Brewerton offers the Yogi Berra an answer.

“Since I’ve been here… and it’s my eighth year… it’s them or us,” Brewerton said. “You try not to build it like ‘the’ game, but that’s what it is for both of us in week 8. And off we go.”

Once again, the District 4-5A rivals face many obstacles. The Broncos, second (7-0, 2-0), host the Hornets (3-3, 2-0) at 7 p.m. Friday to mark a busy week 8 schedule.

Brewerton said the school received about 60 calls on Thursday requesting tickets for reserved seats. With the possible exception of East Ascension (2-3, 1-1) at Woodlawn (3-3, 2-0) and St. Amant (5-1, 1-1) against the first Catholic (7-0, 2-0) in District 5-5A, it’s hard to find a game that includes so much explosiveness.

Scotlandville quarterback C’Zavian Teasett (1,524 passing yards, 12 TDs) and quarterback Zachary Eli Holstein (1,434 yards, 17 TDs) are the region’s top passers.

Chance Williams’ combo and East Carolina engagement Marlon Gunn Jr. of Scotlandville totaled 1,019 yards and 15 touchdowns. Connor Wisham leads Zachary with 518 yards and 10 touchdowns. Camren Stewart has organized consecutive 100-yard rushing games for the Broncos.

“I could give the old clichés about important things,” Brewerton said. “The point is, we have to be ready to play 48 minutes. We had close games with these guys. You have to play to the end.

EAHS Lee game is ready

East Ascension coach Darnell Lee has said he’s ready to see what happens when the Spartans meet Woodlawn.

“This is the kind of game that I would love to have the chance to line up and play,” said Lee. “And if I coached another team and had a Friday off, this is the game I would go to see.”

Woodlawn’s Rickie Collins has 1,303 passing yards, and Lee can’t wait to see what his quarterback, Troy Dunn, does. Dunn has 626 passing yards and four touchdowns.

Give me three

The top-ranked Catholic is aiming for his third straight victory over St. Amant on Friday night at Memorial Stadium. COVID-19 issues kept teams from playing a year ago.

The Bears defeated the Gators in 2018 and 2019. St. Amant earned their last victory in the series in 2017.
