Football Bears Up The Ante In 2020 Campaign
The Catholic High School Football Program released its schedule for the 2020 season. Comprised of 10 regular season games, the Bears will face some familiar and not so familiar opponents.
The Bears open the 2020 campaign on the road playing crosstown rival Parkview Baptist before hosting nationally ranked IMG Academy out of Bradenton, FL, in week two. This will make the first time IMG has played a high school football game in the state of Louisiana. “In keeping with our vision for the program, we wanted to continue giving our young men the opportunities to compete at the highest level,” said CHS Head Football Coach Gabe Fertitta. “IMG Academy is one of the top prep programs in the country, and it will be an incredible opportunity and test for our players.”
In week three, the Bears host the 2018 Division II State Champion University High and round out the pre-district schedule with contests against 2019 Class 4A State Champion Edna Karr and 2019 Division II State Champion St. Thomas More.
As the Bears begin district play, they will be defending their 2019 District 5-5A Championship with matchups against East Ascension, McKinley, St. Amant, Woodlawn and Dutchtown. “We look forward to testing ourselves again this year with one of the toughest schedules in the state of Louisiana,” noted Fertitta.
