Crescent City Kings football in 2022 playoffs

NEW ORLEANS – New Orleans’ very first developmental football club, The Crescent City Kings look to defend their APDFL title, hosting the Bayou Lacombe Cardinals in a playoff matchup on Saturday.

After winning the 2021 National Championship, the Kings continued their run of dominance with a commanding undefeated regular season (10-0), earning a first round playoff bye.

This weekend’s game is a rematch from earlier this season when the Kings defeated the Cardinals, 40-18. Kings Head Coach Fredrick Washington and General Manager Tony Flot have been charging their team with the task of executing in all three phases of the game.

Since the organization was founded nine years ago, the Kings have empowered their former players with the skills and resources to extend their playing careers into various professional leagues across the United States and Canada. Just recently, Defensive Assistant Coach ((and former Kings player), Rene Bryant Carter received an invitation to join the National Arena League, playing for the Mississippi Raiders.

“We don’t want the Kings to be the end of your playing career. Everyone on this team should look to advance beyond us,” said Washington.

Saturday’s Round 2 game against the Bayou Lacombe Cardinals is slated at Joe Brown’s Victory Field in New Orleans. Kickoff is at 7:00 p.m.
