John F. Kennedy High School has long established a strong football tradition, first reaching the state playoffs in 1970. The Cougars then made the playoffs nine times through 2003.

Then came Hurricane Katrina. The original school was damaged and closed.

Then came a rebirth. A new school was built on Paris Avenue and became known as Lake Area New Tech.

In 2019, the original name was reinstated and the tradition was revived. Lynaris Elpheage, a former Carver and Tulane star, highlighted the program.

The Cougars (6-1) have only lost once, a one-point loss to Helen Cox. JFK now finds himself in a very strong position to earn a high seed in the playoffs.

As a result, John F. Kennedy reached the Crescent City Sports Top 10 ranking in Class 3A in 10th position.

Union Parish and record running back and LSU commit Trey Holly remain in first place in 3A with ED White Catholic second. Church Point, undefeated, is third with Madison Prep fourth and St. James now fifth. Bogalusa moves up to sixth with the undefeated Carroll seventh. University Lab drops to eighth place with Parkview Baptist in ninth place.
