Photo Feature: We will rise again

The absence of spring sports has left a hole in the hearts of prep athletes and fans. In uncertain times, one thing is for sure — The River Region will rise again after every disaster. The following photos are from a September 2012 edition of L’OBSERVATEUR, as football teams returned to the field eager for a distraction after Hurricane Isaac devastated the community.

St. Charles Catholic Coach Monica is one of many who had flooding in his LaPlace Home during Hurricane Isaac. Following the storm, he balanced responsibilities with his team and family rebuilding efforts.

West St. John’s Justin Bethancourt and St. Charles Catholic’s Taylor Cochran were able to return to the field soon after Hurricane Isaac.
