The Howard-Bech Connection
Cougar QB Walker Howard might be the son of former LSU QB Jamie Howard, but he plays like a guy determined to forge his own legacy. He’s one of the nation’s top quarterback prospects in the Class of 2022 and is already committed to his Dad’s alma mater.
Howard’s chemistry with Bech, who’s headed to Vanderbilt in the fall, is undeniable. The first-half stats were mind-bending.

Player of the Game: Jack Bech
Bech ended the night with 10 receptions for 224 yards and two touchdowns. He was undeniably the player of the game for the Cougars, making plays on both sides of the ball.
A Great Game Among Great Friends
This is what it's all about! Two great ones QB Walker Howard of St. Thomas More and OL Emery Jones of Catholic High.
