Loyola ‘prepping’ for the 2018 football season

The Flyers ready to soar into the week 1

As students in Caddo Parish return to class, a football is being passed.
As parents search for those last minute school supplies, a wind sprint is being ran.
By God, it’s football season!
The Loyola Flyers open the 2018 season the same way they did in 2017, by playing Cedar Creek. But for head coach Steven Geter and his Flyers from Loyola, they hope this year will have a different outcome.
“That’s one that we let get away from us. That’s game number one for us and that’s what we’re focused on,” says Flyer Head coach Steven Geter.


Last season, the team finished the regular season with a record 5-5 and (2-0) in district, before losing in the playoffs to Teurlings Catholic.

But that was last year, and this is a new year. The Flyers seem ready to fly in the 2018 season. The Flyers return 3-year starting quarterback, Jacob Allen, and starting linebacker Alec D’Antoni.

They looked alive at practice, and they looked like a football team ready to line up and play. Here’s 2018 their schedule:

8/31 — Cedar Creek @ Loyola

9/7 –Loyola @ West Quachita

9/14 — St. Frederick @ Loyola

9/21 — Loyola @ Sterlington

9/28 — North Caddo @ Loyola

10/5 — Loyola @ Calvary

10/11 — St. Mary @ Loyola

10/19 — Green Oaks @ Loyola

10/26 — Loyola @ Rayville

11/2 — North Webster @ Loyola

Loyola College Prep is a private Catholic coeducational high school in Shreveport, Louisiana, founded by the Society of Jesus, but now operated by the Diocese of Shreveport.

And they play good-smart football.
