Don’t look now but the focus is shifting to John Curtis Christian.
No, we are not referencing the best prep football program in Louisiana. You already knew about 27 state championships on the field.
No, we are not talking about the elite girls basketball program which has won three consecutive state titles.
No, this is not about the Patriot baseball program which won back-to-back Division 1 state titles in 2017 and 2018.
We are talking about volleyball.
Look out for the Patriots.
