Description

A federal court ruling in 1967 brought all-black St. Augustine High School into Louisiana's all-white Catholic high school sports association. Newly appointed Head Football Coach Otis Washington would face relentless adversity in the years that followed --- a playoff berth lost on a coin toss, discriminatory officiating, unfavorable rulings from the school board, and a championship game defeat --- while cultivating an innovative offensive style of play still used today.
