LaPLACE-After one of the most successful seasons in the history of St. John Parish, the L’Observateur announces its inaugural All-Parish team.
Participants had to be from the five local high schools. The schools included on the list are East St. John High School, West St. John High School, Riverside Academy, St. Charles Catholic and Reserve Christian School.
The winners were chosen by the sports editor of the L’Observateur, Mr. David Folse II.
Five players, regardless of position were chosen on the first-team along with a Most Valuable Player, who was separate from the All-Parish squad.
Along with the six All-Parish members, West St. John’s Antoine Edwards was selected as the All-Parish Coach of the Year. Edwards was instrumental in guiding his Rams to the Top 28 Tournament in Lafayette and coming within one point of taking home the state championship in Class 2A.
The 2004-05 squad consists of West St. John’s Juan Joseph, East St. John’s Ryan Perrilloux, Riverside Academy’s Josh Labiche, St. Charles Catholic’s Michael Troglen and Reserve Christian’s Kevin Branch.
The MVP of the squad is junior guard Demond “Tweetie” Carter of Reserve Christian. The MVP of the Class B, Carter averaged over 30 points as he helped lead the Eagles to their third state championship in four years this season.
