It is a blah week after last weekend's Battle on the Border. That is the one negative to having such a great event to go to. It is hard to follow up with anything any better until it gets later in the season and teams are playing district games and fighting for playoff berths. The biggest and by far best game in the Shreveport-Bossier area in week 3 is the Barbe at Evangel game. Fair Park plays host to Byrd at Lee Hedges Stadium in the oldest series in Shreveport but it won't be much of a game. FP coach Mike Greene is making some progress with the Indians but he doesn't have the horses or depth. Coach Greene might be the only one around these parts that can put an athlete on the field faster than Richard Carthon in Justin Fortson but that is about it for FP. Captain Shreve goes to Independence Stadium to play Huntington in a rematch of the jamboree in which the Gators outscored the Raiders 24-14. Green Oaks at Northwood could be interesting. The Giants have a few athletes but too few players will once again prove to be their undoing in facing a deeper Falcon squad.
