It should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with Louisiana high school football, but big things are expected from John Curtis Christian heading into 2012.
The Patriots feature heavily in this week's FAB 50 Offseason Primer from ESPNHS writer Mark Tennis. It's hard to raise the expectations on a team that went 14-0 on the way to a Class 2A state title while racking up head coach J.T. Curtis' 500th career win, but the Patriots return a lot of talent. The program sends plenty of players to major college football - Joe McKnight, for one. Curtis tight end and 2012 prospect Dillon Gordon will join LSU's roster this fall.
I covered Curtis on multiple occasions in 2011, and regardless of the losses, the Patriots return essentially their entire devastating backfield.
Tennis has the full scoop here, where he also highlights Class 4A runner-up Edna Karr.
