Well, it all boils down to this simple fact for Sacred Heart, you have to win to be in. The Trojans are the No. 17 ranked team in the power ratings and must be in the top 16 to get a playoff berth.
Al Davis, the former Oakland Raider owner, said it best when he said “Just win, baby”.
And, if Ville Platte High (5-4, 2-2) wishes to keep their playoff position, they would be wise to heed Mr. Davis’ sentiment. Ville Platte has made the playoffs in six of the last nine years.
Rotary District 6200 Governor Francis Nezianya of Zackary visited with Rotary Club members and spoke to the club at the November 1 meeting.
Nezianya said, “We work so hard every single year to set goals, and the two goals we work hard for each year are membership and foundation.”
