Multiple Teams · JC vs. Parkview…A clash of Championship Programs!

Their are few teams that can claim as much dominance on the football field as the John Curtis Patriots this decade. This week’s opponent, the Parkview Baptist Eagles, has a serious stake to that claim. Try this on for size. Here are the Patriots’ accomplishments this decade on the football field:

2010 – State Runner Up
2011 – State Champions
2012 – State Champions and National Champions
2013 – State Champions
2014 – State Runner Up
2015 – State Semi-Finalists
2016 – State Semi-Finalists

Now, check out the Parkview Baptist Eagles’  accomplishments this decade:

2010 – State Champions
2011 – State Semi-Finalists
2012 – State Champions
2013 – State Semi-Finalists
2014 – State Runner Up
2015 – State Champions
2016 – State Runner Up

Comparing the two programs, each has won 3 state championships this decade. Each has 2 state runner-ups and each have 2 semi-finalist appearances. Perhaps the only thing that separates the two programs this decade is the Patriots’ 2012 consensus national championship. The results on the field, however, show something a bit different. The Patriots have had the upper hand in both games they have played when facing one another. The Patriots defeated the Eagles soundly, 41-14 in 2014. The Eagles, however, significantly narrowed that gap last season, as the Patriots escaped with a 34-31 victory. In a weird twist, the Patriots traveled to Baton Rouge both of those years. They will do so again this year, due to the Eagles having a home stadium to play on Friday night. With the Patriots’ inability to have a true home stadium, availability to municipal “home” stadiums for a Friday night game in New Orleans is very difficult. So, to Baton Rouge, the Patriots will go.

The Eagles are coming off of a very impressive 29-7 win over the East Ascension Spartans last week. This was coming off of a devastating walk-off, last second, touchdown pass completion by Catholic High, where the Bear wide receiver barely touched his toe down in the back corner of the endzone with a Parkview defender draped all over him in coverage. It was a game for the ages, as the Bears eeked out a 27-25 victory. The Eagles showed no side effects from that devastating loss to Catholic, who is one of their Baton Rouge rivals, by traveling to Gonzales and whipping the East Ascension Spartans. All Catholic High did was go whip 5A non-select power Zachary, 24-14, following their “pinch me, I’m dreaming” finish versus the Eagles. The reason we are saying all of this is because Parkview Baptist is a VERY formidable foe for the Patriots.

Coming off of a very physical game vs. Grayson, GA last week and traveling to Shreveport, returning home very late on Saturday and getting back on the road and traveling to Baton Rouge will test this team’s mettle this week. For our fans, we encourage you to come support this team. They will need every bit of encouragement and support. They work extremely hard in school, on the field, in the weight room, in the film room and in all other areas that it takes to be a successful team. For those who do support them, or have supported them, we thank you and ask for continued support!

Go Patriots!!
