Brother Martin Celebrates Homecoming 2021

On October 15, we gathered as one Brother Martin family to revel in our 2021 Homecoming festivities, including cheering on our Crusader football team versus the Shaw Eagles, participating in tailgating and alumni activities, and observing the crowning of our 2021 Homecoming Queen.

The tailgate featured jambalaya prepared and served by our Culinary Crusaders under the direction of Donnie Midkiff ’03. Alumni, families, and friends enjoyed Coca-Cola refreshments while dining on a large variety of selections. Pat Barbaro ’85 served as emcee and provided music.

Before heading into the stadium, the 2021 Homecoming Court was introduced with their student escorts, our “back-to-back” National Championship Cheerleaders, the Crusader Band, and Drum Line entertained guests with special performances.

Next, the 1996 State Championship Baseball Team, coached by Barry Hebert ’74, and the 1987 State Championship Tennis Team, coached by Dr. Winston Riehl, were recognized on their respective anniversaries.

Lastly, our 1971 State Championship football team, coached by Bob Conlin and Chubby Marks, and our 1971 State Championship cross country team, coached by Jack Schommer, were recognized on their 50th anniversary.

On Friday, December 10, 1971, Brother Martin made Louisiana High School Athletic History by winning two state championships! The Crusader football team captured the quad- A State Championship by defeating St. Augustine 23-0 at Tad Gormley Stadium. Earlier that day, our cross country team won their first State Championship in Baton Rouge.

Serving as honorary captains for the game were the 1971 football team captains Don Angle ’72, Kenny Bordelon ’72, and Steve Treuting ’72. The Alumni Band played the Brother Martin Fight Song as the crowd showed their appreciation and respect for these legendary teams.

The Crusader football team remained undefeated with an impressive 47-15 victory.

During halftime, Miss Allie Broussard was named the 2021 Homecoming Queen and Alumni Board President Dr. Leni Sumich ’90 presented her crown. Peyton Aucoin ’16, Ryan Hoefeld ’13, Chance Miller ’88, Hillar Moore ’72, Doug Mouton ’81, Josh Thomas ’97 and Adam Zander ’08 served as alumni escorts.

At the end of the third quarter, Crusader Band Alumni Drum Majors were recognized and received a special plaque honoring them. The plaque was dedicated by Arthur Hardy and will hang in the Band Room.

After the Crusader victory, alumni and guests continued their celebration at the annual Lettermen Reunion at Francesca’s by Katie’s.

The homecoming festivities this year went off with a bang (literally - there were fireworks), and we can't wait for next year's homecoming day kickoff!
