Lafayette, LA (KADN) The STM Cougars are grateful to be practicing Thanksgiving week as they get ready for a semifinals matchup against St. Charles. Louisiana Sports Hall of Famer Jim Hightower is thankful to be coaching his team. The Cougars travel to St. Charles this Friday at 7pm for the Division II state semifinals.
“This football team has been a wonderful team to coach,” Hightower said. “Talented. Very unselfish group. Enthusiast. They bring a lot of very fun energy to the practice field. Very fun group to be around.
Hightower is slightly concerned about his special teams because they haven’t had to punt much this season. However, with the character of this group he’s confident they can execute in tight late-game situations.
