A question many are asked while growing up, “what do you wanna be WHEN you grow up?” For two local high school football coaches — well, they’re probably living their dreams.
Logansport head coach Kevin Magee and Haughton head coach Jason Brotherton have a lot in common.
Both men coach at their alma mater, they’re both former starting quarterbacks, and they’re both coaching their teams this Friday in the LHSAA state semifinals.
5A – Haughton at Destrehan
1A – Logansport at Oak Grove
Logansport’s Kevin Magee lined up under center from 1994-1996 and played for the 1995 state champion team. He also led (coached) Logansport to another state title in 2016. Magee has been the head coach at Logansport for six seasons.
Haughton’s Jason Brotherton was quarterback for the Buccaneers in 1992 and 1993. Coach Brotherton has been the head coach for 4 years, and assistant coach for 18 years.
Both these men will lead their schools into battle this Friday night and ALL of northwest Louisiana is rooting for them. Especially in Logansport and Haughton, the towns these two men grew up in.
