[/quote] Barbe was a very cocky team for not having won a state title with this group. Granted they may have had one of the most talented offenses I have seen in high school, but their window has closed for a while now.

I love beer just as much as anyone. In fact, I'm a homebrewer. That said, I admire people who place other people's feelings ahead of their own...especially family. In this particular case, it was not your party and if ordering a beer would've caused uneasiness, then the mature and considerate act...

He's a senior this year. Just started punting last year. There's no kick/punt coach on the h.s. staff so he's basically learned technique on his own through youtube and a few sessions with a local coach. I think there's upside potential if he were to work wi...

My son is the punter for Barbe and is having a relatively good year. After 10 punts in 4 games, he's averaging 40 yds/punt with 3 touchbacks and 3 caught/downed inside the opponent's 20. Longest is 53 yds. He's had very little coaching in terms of technique/mechanics so I think there's a little u...
