STM Ready for State Title Rematch

STM Ready for State Title Rematch

Posted: Dec 24, 2020 1:10 AM

Lafayette, LA (KADN) -- The STM Cougars are still undefeated. That's their goal in 2020. Be the first undefeated state champions in school history, but they have one game to go the state title game against De La Salle on signing day last week. It's a rematch of last year's state title game that STM won 58-10.


"It feels really good," Jack Bech said. "We have been working on this since last season ended all throughout quarantine have an undefeated championship season. We are on the verge of it as seniors and we are going to try to knock it out."


They are two completely different teams they are a seasoned group," STM head coach Jim Hightower explained. "Last year they played a freshman quarterback. he is a sophomore and he has another season under his belt. Their junior running back is now a senior and you can tell the difference in maturity and size and strength."


Because of the pandemic this year the Cougars' motto is uncaged and after the pandemic, they can't wait to let themselves loose on the state championship trophy after four winning quarters of football.
