The 2012 football season is about to kick-off! Go Saints, as in Go Goretti Saints! As far as NORD football is concerned, New Orleans has maintained a decent amount of community-based parks and the teams associated with them even Post-K. I am biased toward Goretti football since that is where I played for two seasons decades ago. Nevertheless, these are the top five teams who always put strong teams on the grid-iron every season:
5. Lakeview Vikings
We used to crush Lakeview. Here’s their website: http://www.lakeviewvikings.com/
4. Milne Raiders
Very good in baseball, pretty good in football, Milne had some serious people to come through there, in baseball that is.
3. Joe Brown ?s
Joe Brown had some speedy finesse players. They were legitimate.
2. Harrell ?S
This team was almost as good as us. They were our best matchup every year.
1. Goretti Saints
Goretti was the quintessential playground and football program in New Orleans. We won many championships before I played as well as after I played.
Honorable mentions: Pontchartrain Park, Kenilworth Park, Hunters, Willie Hall, Bunny Friend, Digby, Carrollton,…
I found a website while writing this post that has all the contact info and locations for these playgrounds. Good job Partnership for Youth Development! http://nolayouthmap.org/resources/146393
