LUTCHER, La. (WGNO) - When the Lutcher Bulldogs vie for a state football championship Saturday, Dec. 10, they'll be continuing a tradition of superstar athletes coming out of St. James Parish.

NFL stars Jarvis Landry and Corey Webster grew up in St. James Parish.

Landry played for Lutcher High, where he was a three-sport athlete. Over at St. James High School, Webster was a two-sport athlete.

Both played for the LSU Tigers. Webster was on the team in 2003 when the Tigers won the BCS National Championship.

His winning streak continued in the NFL. Webster retired after nine years with the New York Giants. He has two Super Bowl rings to remember his time in the NFL.

Landry is now in his third season with the Miami Dolphins.

And finally, there's "Gentleman Dave" Malarcher, who's viewed as one of the best third basemen who played in the Negro League in the 1920s. Read more on the remarkable life of Mr. Malarcher here.
