Sacred Heart’s JT Harper gains yardage against Houma Christian earlier this season. The sophomore running back/wide receiver earned second team honors on the all-district team for District 5-2A by rushing for 841 yards and collecting 424 yards of receiving. Harper also scored 17 touchdowns. (Gazette file photo.)

However, for two of those teams, playoffs were the order of the day, as the Sacred Heart Trojans and the Basile Bearcats both made appearances in the post-season.
