The CHS Bears capped off an incredible championship run with a 31-28 victory over Archbishop Rummel to capture the 2015 LHSAA Football Division I Championship. In a game that saw the lead change hands several times and both teams fight to the bitter end, CHS Bear Parker Fontenot, kicked the winning field goal as time expired.
For the Bear faithful, this kind of heart stopping finish has almost become commonplace. In the Quarter-Final round of the playoffs, the Bears stopped Brother Martin’s two-point conversion with :17 seconds left to win 49-48. A week later in the Semi-Final round, after trailing 21-0 at halftime, the Bears battled back to beat Evangel Christian 28-21 in overtime!
