Varnado was defeated by Livingston Collegiate Academy, 56-0, in Friday’s game that was held at Joe Brown Park in New Orleans East.

“They have a really good football team,” Varnado coach Adam Brumfield said. “Playing up in (Class) 3A is always a challenge. We just have to get some kids back from injury. That on top of some starters not not traveling with us due to discipline purposes really handicaps us. When you’re in 1A and you miss six starters for us, that’s six on both sides of the ball. Hopefully the experience that some of the freshmen got will make us better in the long run but we got to get healthy.”

Varnado is 1-4 this year, while Livingston Collegiate Academy is 4-1.

On Friday, Varnado is facing West St. John at home to start District 10-1A play.

“West St. John is always athletic,” Brumfield said. ”We will have to contain the quarterback defensively and tackle better. Offensively, we have to get some movement up front to make better running lanes than last week. We also need everyone to be committed to practicing well. That is key.”

West St. John is 0-4 this season and is coming off of a 42-0 loss to Ascension Episcopal.
