St. Augustine plays DeSoto this Friday 6pm streaming

Live Stream


quote:

DeSoto will play St. Augustine from New Orleans in the Nike Kickoff Classic at 6 p.m. Aug. 26 in Beaverton, Ore. The NFL is partnering with Nike to put on the event, and it will be televised on the NFL Network.


quote:

“We’re a Nike school. It was a chance for our kids to go play another high-powered team across the country,” DeSoto coach Claude Mathis. “It’s going to be a national game. We’re fired up about it. I think it gives our kids an opportunity to be seen across the country. More importantly, it lets people know about DeSoto.”

Coming off an 11-3 season and appearance in the Class 6A Division I Region II final, DeSoto returns six players who are ranked among the top 100 recruits in the Dallas area. That group is led by four-star wide receiver Johntay Cook II and four-star running back Tre Wisner, who are both committed to Texas.

St. Augustine was 4-6 last season, but it has a lot of talent. Four-star recruit Tyree Adams is rated the 20th-best offensive tackle in the nation by 247Sports, and three-star defensive lineman Kyran Bourda is ranked as the 21st-best player in Louisiana in the Class of 2023.

“St. Augustine is really, really good. They’ve had some powerful players come through that place in past history and still have probably about five or six DIs on that football team, FBS guys, if not more,” Mathis

They have a 6’5 300 OLman on DeSoto that’s itching for an LSU offer. Originally from Monroe and a huge LSU fan.

He might be talking about Darrien Lurks. If he is I had no idea he was originally from Funroe.

They have another big ole boy by the name of Ronnie McClain.

But I'd be more interested in Lurks.

I can never remember his name, but he’s going to the 10th grade. I met the young man back in November.

Probably, for all the illustrious talent that has come through that program to only have 3 state championships (all in 1970s) is borderline criminal. Too much parochialism and affirmative action hires have lowered the ceiling.


The alumni would rather lose big with a black alum coach than win state with Saban as coach.

Ronell Mclain is a 2024 kid that plays LT/RT for DeSoto.

His sophomore HUDL isn't bad at all, but I'm not capable of determining whether or not the kid is a D-1 talent. Plus, he's yet to be ranked by 247 or on3.

Below are links to his HUDL, as well as, his 247 profile.

That might be the most difficult high school football schedule ever seen. 2 recent state champs, the best team in MD, Skyline, SOC and Mansfield produce D1 talent like crazy. Karr might be the weakest team on the schedule. Thought and prayers for Desoto’s season.

Absolutely. I bet our whole recruiting staff will be there if not a dead period. Those schools pump out D1 players.

Talking about Byron Washington? I know he’s originally from Monroe and is an OL for Desoto.
