The second week of the prep football season kicks off Thursday. In one of the best matchups, Bogalusa plays at Slidell.

The Lumberjacks opened with a thrilling 36-31 road win at rival Franklinton. Ashton Levi picked up where he left off last season, completing 12 of 27 passes for 263 yards and three touchdowns and rushing 17 times for 169 yards and two scores.

“We expect Ashton to do that week in and week out and take the bull by the horns,” Crutchfield said. “I saw a lot of effort last week. We had to get acclimated to play a full 48 minutes for the first time. As long as you have that fight and that effort, you always have a chance to win. Slidell has good size and their defense is good. All 11 guys run to the ball. They are fundamentally sound. They are big up front on offense as well. We have to be solid all around in our scheme. If one person aligns wrong, we could be in trouble. It would be big to get a power points win against a 5A school.”

The Tigers, the defending 6-5A champion, lost 10-0 at home to Jesuit. Senior running back Trevell Watts keys the Slidell offense.

“Jesuit got us on the first drive and then we settled in defensively,” Slidell coach Malter Scobel said. “They were well coached and play hard. We have to be more consistent on offense. They were consistent on defense and did not make mistakes. We could not get anything going. Levi is phenomenal for Bogalusa. He’s outstanding. He can run it and throw it. They are tough and have athletes.”
