District 4-3A had three teams make it to the playoffs not named Notre Dame last year, with two making it all the way to the quarterfinals. For one of those quarterfinals teams, Iowa, it was their best playoff run in school history, and the Yellow Jackets are doing everything to prove that last year was no fluke.
     For Jennings, making it to the Quarters was not a first in 2012, but it may be hard to repeat that success with only 10 seniors and a few juniors with experience. But head coach Rusty Phelps is confident in his young bunch.
     For Westlake, all eyes will be on senior Jacory Washington. A 6'4" tight end who is committed to play for LSU in 2014. For now, its all about the Rams and how to best utilize al the attention he receives
     St Louis makes the move from a competitive 4-4A district to arguably just as strong 4-3A. But the transition may be even harder losing 19 seniors from last year. But that doesn't mean that success is impossible.
     For South Beauregard...a team that went 2-8 last year...they set big goals that will indicate small progressions
     As for Iota, they re-enter 3A young in experience, low in numbers, but just looking to get adjusted and compete.
