[quote]Same goes for HC. We take a kid from the worst parts of the city and mold then into fu king men. We save lives brother one by one. Let's see yall do that? Nope u won't , you would rather put them out or let em skat by if they are an athlete. [/quote]

[quote]Wait? Better programs my ass. The proof is their with the amount of academic and athletic scholarships year in and year out. Did not mean to lump us up there with NMS as it pertains to Jesuit.

I actually like this idea. Seems like a good fit and the southshore isn't that much further of a drive than St Paul's to slidell, Hammond, pontchatoula. Would St. Paul's want to join the Catholic League though?...

[quote]The pool of potential students for the catholic league has been hit hard, but it only manifests itself at the schools not named Jesuit or BM. Those two schools will always have enough kids applying to take who they need to fill the school and still turn kids aways. The other schools are grasp...
