Congratulations to Andrew 'Drew' Martin '19 for being named South Shore player of the week on NOLA.com! Martin currently leads our Crusader football team as the quarterback. The Crusader football team is currently 1-0 with an exciting win over Petal High School (final score: 35-14) last Friday, August 31. The Crusaders return to the field this Saturday, September 8, at Tad Gormley Stadium, to take on Warren Easton High School with a kick-off at 2:00 p.m.
See text below from NOLA.com's Article about Martin being named South Shore player of the week:
There were several outstanding performances around the metro area in the opening week of the season. With all of them being close, we went with the fans.
Brother Martin quarterback Drew Martin, in his first prep start, was 15-of-23 for 247 yards and three touchdowns, and he collected nearly 300 yards of total offense in the Crusaders' 35-14 win over Petal (Miss.).
As a result, Martin, who edged Holy Cross quarterback Bryan Broussard, is named the South Shore Male Athlete of the Week for Week 1.
Voting results: Martin, 1,016 of 3,552 votes (28.6 percent).
