    Besides the parents and college freshman that attend John Curtis…..does anyone really care about them winning 20 something state titles and this national championship? John Curtis is a fraud holding back kids in 5th and 6th grade since the LHSAA won't allow them to hold students back in 8th grade any longer! That… plus recruiting… all equals their success. It also drives me nuts that the MEDIA doesn't investigate John Curtis for the tactics that they do yearly in order for them to continue their success not just in football but all sports presently! Anyone with vision and a pulse can see the college freshman of John Curtis playing High School athletes every Friday night! A monkey could coach Curtis FB so please stop all of the praise for Coach JT Curtis!! Put JT at a school that follows the rules and see if he wins one state title….much less 20 something!
