Calvary and Northwood quarterbacks in rare company

Shreveport should change its name to Quarterback City. After seeing a list of where two more Shreveport high school quarterbacks rank, you may agree; and you might want to call your State Representatives and start asking them for a city name change form.

Below is a list of the top 11 quarterbacks statistically in the history of Louisiana high school football.

6 of the top 7, and 7 of 11, are all Shreveport guys (Berlin, J. Booty, Deas, and J.D. Booty ((Evangel)), Cade Hart ((Calvary)), Luke Bogan ((Northwood)), and Joe Ferguson ((Woodlawn))

Player       Passing Yards             Touchdowns               Interceptions

  1. Brock Berlin                   13,902                        145                          33

  11. Joe Ferguson                    6,710                         86                          37


For the first time since 1993 (Peyton Manning and Josh Booty), two names on this list are playing at the same time. Calvary’s Cade Hart and Northwood’s Luke Bogan have been lighting up scoreboards, stats sheets, and defenses across the state, and they’re both not done yet.

You can see them both this week in the 1st Round of the LHSAA playoffs.

In 4A, No. 12 Northwood hosts No. 21 Rayne

In Division IV, No. 4 Calvary hosts No. 13 St. Frederick
