Baton Rouge High doesn’t have many sports. Why can’t they be good at some?


Because the good BRSC kids don't go there in enough numbers to make them competitive.

Exactly. And this applies to all schools in the Baton Rouge area. BRHS stopped being consistently competitive when they moved up a division about 20 years ago. A few years after that, they stopped bringing in premier coaches and voilà, mediocrity.

Where do the players go? BRSC is the #1 LA team in my son’s age group (U13) and they’re always top 5. Seems like gathering 4 years of those best players would yield a damn good team, coach be damned.

re: Season long LHSAA soccer thread
Yeah, we have lots of talent in Baton Rouge, but it gets so spread out among all the schools to where none of our teams can really ever compete for state. The talent is far more concentrated among elite programs in other parts of the state like Houma-Thibodaux, Lafayette, Northshore, and New Orleans.

Catholic is the only program that can field an entire team of club players, and they have to compete with Jesuit and St. Paul’s to win state. The rest of us are just happy to get more than a few guys who have played before high school.

re: Season long LHSAA soccer thread
The elite players, as in the top 15-20 in the city at each grade level, are still spread out in New Orleans amongst Jesuit, Brother Martin, Newman, Lusher, East Jefferson, Holy Cross, Ben Franklin and a few more. The difference is depth. Jesuit had 100 kids at tryouts this year in grades 9-12. Every one of them are year round club players. I suspect Bother Martin was similar.

BRH cant compete with private schools,. Club playing requires alot of time, a parent who can drive or carpool, money, and travel. chs parents can do that but not brh

Meh. The majority of BRHS's student body is female. Compairing their team sports to Catholic's comes down to a lot more than money.

Not to the club and HS rosters of all of those schools, no. The comment was based on observation.
