NEW ORLEANS – The Saints and the LHSAA reached out to every high school in the state during the offseason and collected one helmet from each school that elected to participate, thus collecting well over 200 helmets from high schools.
Minden High School was among them, and Principal Robin Tucker expressed her pleasure with the Crimson Tide helmet being featured in our state’s most recognizeable stadium.
“I just think it’s a wonderful honor that the LHSAA is recognizing these schools and the role football plays in our state,” Tucker said. “Especially in the Minden community. We hope we can be successful enough this season to go down their and get to see our helmet live and in color.”
Louisiana annually ranks amongst the nation’s elite in discussions surrounding which state offers the most competitive high school levels of play. Each year countless former Louisiana high school football players help compromise NFL rosters, a tradition that dates back to the formation of professional football in the United States.
“We are proud of our organization’s long-time association with the Louisiana High School Athletic Association.” Saints President Dennis Lauscha stated. “We believe that athletics plays an important role in teaching values and important life lessons and fostering teamwork among peers.
These helmets reflect the dedication and determination that those who wore and wear the helmets of their high schools represent.”
