’Jacks working in the heat this spring
The Patterson High School Lumberjacks are going through spring drills at the school. The Lumberjacks are looking to improve upon last year’s 7-4 finish that included a first-round playoff berth where the squad gave Notre Dame of Crowley, one of Class 3A’s top seeds, all it could handle before falling 38-26. The Lumberjacks have representatives from all the state schools as well as LSU, Florida State, Arkansas and Texas A&M visit this spring to look at the Patterson players, according to coach Tommy Minton. Patterson will host Central Lafourche at 6 p.m. Thursday in its spring game.
