The rivalry between Teurlings Catholic and St. Thomas More takes over the entire Acadiana area every time they meet. When the Rebels and Cougars hit the field, there's more than just bragging rights on the line.

District 4-4A is up for grabs right now. If STM wins, they're in the driver's seat for another district title. Teurlings would love nothing more than to steal the top spot from the Cougars and become kings of the hill as the only remaining team in the district without a loss. Rebels Head Coach Sonny Charpentier is a mastermind, and he's pulling out all the stops for rivalry week.

Focus is key every practice, but the intensity reaches a new level out at Teurlings when it's STM game week. As senior linebacker Tyler "Bear" Batiste told his teammates, "If you're not ready for this one, you shouldn't be playing."
