The searing national controversy over the shooting of black men by police, and the way that people choose to protest those shootings, arrived at a high school football game in Jefferson Parish last week.
This one wasn't a protest. It was a show of unity. On a night like this one, it was a fitting way to kick things off Football helped unite the city of New Orleans 10 years ago. And on Monday night - 10 years after the Saints returned to the Dome after Hurricane Katrina - there was unity again.
Cam Jordan, like a lot of people, had some questions Tuesday. I did too. "What does it mean to 'look like a bad dude'?" Jordan asked on Twitter as the latest footage of police brutality splashed over television screens all across the country.
There will be plenty of stars on the baseball-turned-football field Friday night when John Curtis and Brother Martin play their Catholic League opener at Zephyr Field. Brother Martin's Bruce Jordan-Swilling and Tre Swilling and Curtis' Garrett Wallow and Jay Curtis to name a few.
Romin Williams is all business on the basketball court. Off the court, he's all business too. So Williams, a 5-foot-10 guard at Country Day, verbally committed to Emory University on Monday night. "They laid out an outstanding plan for me, academically first and then athletically," Williams said.

They could play this game in an empty lot in River Ridge or on Elysian Fields and it would have topped this week's list of top matchups. But throw in the fact that John Curtis and Brother Martin are playing at Zephyr Field on Friday night makes it that much more special.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The history books say hit the panic button. The Saints say don't. History tells us that, after Sunday's second straight coulda-woulda-shoulda Saints loss in as many weeks, just go ahead and throw in the towel on the season.
Nelson Stewart knew OBJ when he was just Odell, long before he became one of the most popular athletes in the world. Stewart knew Odell Beckham Jr., the New York Giants' third-year receiver, when he was just a kid, reeling in passes Uptown at Isidore Newman School, way before all the commercials and the stardom.
In a battle of No. 1 vs. No. 2, the night belonged to No. 1. That's the jersey number of Karr senior quarterback Aldon Clark. Clark threw four touchdowns to lead Karr to a 55-46 victory over Brother Martin on Thursday night at Tad Gormley Stadium.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
