Football Gears Up for Season with Solid Jamboree Performance
By Andrew Valenti ’04 for Nola.com
Jesuit rode a three-touchdown outburst in the first half en route to a 27-0 road victory against Hahnville in the teams’ jamboree game on Thursday.
The Blue Jays, the Division I state runner-ups a year ago, leaned on its ground game for much of the contest, racking up 142 yards and four touchdowns in two 12-minute halves. Jaron Duplessis, Jasper Parker, Patrick Berrigan and Harry Reinhardt scored one touchdown each, and Duplessis paced the quartet with 53 yards rushing.
Jesuit’s Berrigan was named player of the game. The junior had a number of tough runs in the game and was the first Blue Jay to find the end zone on a 7-yard run with nearly eight minutes left in the first half. He finished the contest with 37 yards and a score on seven attempts.
