Torrey Andrews of St. Augustine missed two shots from the field Wednesday night. Unfortunately for Rummel , he attemped 17. Andrews scored 31 points to lead the unbeaten Purple Knights to a 74-55 victory against Rummel in the District 11-AAAA opener for both teams at the St. Aug gym. St. Augustine, ranked 14th in one national poll and 24th in another, won its 20th straight game. Rummel is 10-6. Andrews, a Rice signee, dominated inside play throughout the game. He scored his first basket on a dunk early in the game and had eight of St. Aug's first 10 points. Andrews was 8-for-9 from the field in the first half. "I just hustled and played ball," Andrews said. "I don't worry about how I'm shooting. Tonight, we wanted to show that 19-0 (St. Aug's pre-district record) wasn't a fluke." Rummel used a ball-control offense to keep St. Aug's running game in check during the first half, but the Raiders couldn't stop Andrews, who scored off rebounds, on soft jumpers and on driving layups. He had nine of the Purple Knights' 12 points in the second quarter, including a baseline jumper with three seconds left that gave St. Aug a 28-22 halftime lead. "Torrey had a good game. He was hustling," said St. Aug Coach Bernard Griffith. "We missed a few layups tonight, and our defense wasn't great in spots, but I know we haven't peaked yet. I told the team that 19-0 was great, but district is what counts." Rummel hung tough in the third quarter, cutting the lead to 36-31 on Henry L'Hoste's 10-foot jumper with 3:25 left. But Andrews made a good move before sinking an 8-foot bank shot and hit a 16-footer to increase the lead to 40-31. Andrews had 10 points in the third quarter to help St. Aug build a 44-33 lead. Ryan Dicharry led Rummel with 19 points, and L'Hoste had 17 points and eight rebounds. John Rondeno scored 11 points, and Billy Grant had eight rebounds for the Purple Knights. "We missed four free throws when we were within eight (points)," said Rummel Coach Rusty Jones. "We made little mistakes, and you can't do that against a great team."

Undefeated St. Augustine shook off a two-point second quarter and subpar performances from their top two scorers and still routed Rummel, 65-48, in a District 11-AAAA game Friday night at the Raider gym. St. Aug, 27-0 overall and 7-0 in district, relied on a swarming defense and deep bench. Reserves Gregory Robinson, Marco Borne and Jason McKain scored 18 second-half points for St. Aug to help offset a sluggish first half. "We played better defense in the second half," said St. Aug Coach Bernard Griffith. "We knew they would hold the ball and work it around." Unfortunately for the Raiders, the ball often worked its way into St. Aug hands. The Purple Knights forced 21 turnovers. Borne scored six points, and guard Patrick Smith made three steals in a 12-4 St. Aug spurt in the third quarter that broke the game open. Smith's 14-foot jumper with 1:22 left in the third gave the Knights a 37-29 lead. "Our bench has done that for us all year," Griffith said. "We came out early in the game and got what we wanted, then we got complacent. We have to stop playing the way we think we can and play the way we work at playing." Torrey Andrews and Pointer Williams, St. Aug's leading scorers, combined for 16 points, almost half of their averages. But their teammates picked up the slack. Jabbar Juluke led St. Aug with 11 points. Smith, Andrews, Billy Grant and Robinson scored 10 each. Grant had nine rebounds. St. Aug forced seven turnovers and broke to an 18-4 lead. Andrews and Juluke combined for eight points in a 12-0 St. Aug run. Rummel, led by center Tronn Moller, countered with 14 consecutive points to tie the score at 18 late in the first half. Moller scored 10 of his game-high 18 points during the rally. Sean Levy scored 17 for the Raiders, 12-9 overall and 3-4 in district. Billy Grant's layup was the only St. Aug's basket in the second quarter. The Purple Knights trailed, 21-20, at halftime. "It's hard, almost impossible, to keep a team as good as St. Aug down for four quarters," said Rummel Coach Rusty Jones. "We were able to stay close in the first half by playing like we were capable." Rummel cut the lead to 39-30 early in the fourth quarter. But St. Aug scored eight quick points, four on steals by Juluke and Smith, to build the lead to 47-30. Rummel's Moller and Levy did most of their damage in the first three quarters. Moller had 11 rebounds.

The Rummel Raiders lost more than an offensive threat last week when junior running back LaKeith Simmons went to the sideline with a severe knee injury in the Raiders' 40-38 loss to St. Amant, he took a large part of Rummel's offense with him. Simmons, the team's fastest player, was dangerous as a runner and receiver. He was a big-play threat who also returned all punts for the Raiders. Before his injury in the second quarter, Simmons had a 50-yard run and a 41-yard punt return. But, Rummel Coach George Ryan said Simmons' value wasn't limited to statistics. "LaKeith is very valuable to this team as a person. We have players who are very close, and they're all cut from pretty much the same cloth. LaKeith is a clean-cut, All-American kid and the other kids identified with him," Ryan said. "He was a young man who was really looking forward to this season. When LaKeith walked in from the hospital, a lot of our players broke down. LaKeith cried, too. That moment was emotionally tough for everyone, but like all young people, they recovered." The irony of Simmons' injury is that there was no contact. He was playing cornerback on Rummel's goal-line defense during a two-point attempt by St. Amant and planted his foot to make a cut when his right knee gave out. Simmons had knee surgery at Southern Baptist Hospital on Tuesday to repair ligament and cartilage damage. He'll be in a full cast for 10 weeks and in a walking brace for eight additional weeks before beginning rehabilitation. Doctors estimated August as the earliest possible return date, Ryan said. "LaKeith is a great kid. The Lord works in mysterious ways, and you have to take the best of everything. Maybe this is a test for him (Simmons) and for this football team," Ryan said. LaKeith is still a big part of our team. I'm sure he'll be rooting for us, and we'll be supporting him this season. You can bet there will be a lot of our players visiting him in the hospital."

After a three-hour and 5-minute game last week against St. Amant, the Raiders performed in relative brevity Friday night, dispensing with the McDonogh 35 Roneagles, 37-6, in only two and one-half hours. The game at Gormley was dominated by the Raiders, incomplete passes, fumbled center snaps and leg cramps, in that order. "I thought we played well on both sides, once we got going," said Raider Coach George Ryan. The Raiders are 1-1; the Roneagles, 0-2. Rummel scored three times in the first quarter and led 28-6 at halftime. The Roneagles were victimized by a faulty kicking game as their first three punts went only 21 total yards, and they had five dropped center-quarterback exchanges and 15 incomplete passes. Rummel came up with two turnovers and limited McDonogh 35 to only 14 yards rushing, including three in the first half. After a two-yard punt in the first quarter, Rummel had to drive only 11 yards for its first score. Rusty Rohm went outside from four yards for a 7-0 lead at 7:55. McDonogh 35's only offensive life came on the next series when quarterback Dennis Johnson hit Thomas McCray on a long pattern down the sidelines for 63 yards and a touchdown at 2:51. The PAT was missed, leaving Rummel ahead, 7-6. "We worked all week on their outside speed and we didn't stop that play," said Ryan. "But it did fire up our team." On the very next play, the lead jumped to 14-6. Quarterback Brad Burckel hit Jeff Schiro with a 9-yard out pattern. Schiro was belted from behind, fumbling the ball. It was scooped up in midstride by Rohm who went the final 45 yards to complete a 54-yard scoring pass. The first of two interceptions by Rummel's Todd Steinert set up the next score, a 12-yard pass from Burckel to Schiro on the final play of the first quarter. In the second quarter, Rummel went 52 yards in two plays, with Rohm gaining 20 yards on first down and Greg Leyrer completing the drive with a 32-yard score at 9:40 for a 28-6 halftime edge. In the third quarter, Rummel's first unit completed its work for the night with a 50-yard drive. Butch Jeansonne, who gained 69 yards on 13 attempts, scored from two yards for a 35-6 advantage. The special teams scored the final two points when McDonogh 35 quarterback Johnny Jones was downed in the end zone. Burckel ended up 4-of-4 passing for 94 yards and two scores. The Roneagle quarterbacks were 5-of-20. "Brad had a super game against St. Amant and I thought he had another one tonight," said Ryan. "I don't know how many people realize what a good quarterback he is. He's a well-kept secret." Johnson was 4-of-12 in the first half for 107 yards but the Roneagles only completed one more pass in the contest in the second half. "I thought we were spotty early, but overall we moved the ball well on the ground and with the pass," said Ryan.

The Raiders pushed the state's top-ranked team to the limit Saturday, but Shaw endured, 13-7, in the District 11-AAAA opener for both teams at Hoss Memtsas Stadium. Inurell Chester's 72-yard punt return just before halftime lifted Shaw from a 7-0 deficit. In the second half the Eagles scored another touchdown and their defense held Rummel to 63 yards and four first downs. Shaw is 4-0. Rummel is 2-2. "Both teams played well enough to win," said Shaw Coach Hank Tierney. "They came ready to play. "But our defense did it for us in the second half, and we quit giving them the ball. I'm just glad it's over. We won't have a harder game this year." The Eagles lost four fumbles, three in the first half and another on their first possesion of the third quarter. But that was to be their last turnover, and midway through the third quarter they mounted a five-play, 71-yard drive capped by Kendell Bussey's TD run from the 1. Bussey had the big play of the march, a 42-yard gainer to the Rummel 24. Rummel's deepest penetration of the second half was to the Shaw 39 where the Raiders elected to punt on fourth-and-one with 8:31 left. The Raiders were to get the ball two more times, but Pat Riley sacked Brad Burckel at the Rummel 28 to end the first possesion; time expired with the Raiders at the Shaw 45. "We thought we were good enough to beat them," Rummel Coach George Becnel said. "We were ready to play, and the kids gave it their hearts and souls. "But Shaw is a fine team with a lot of class, and we couldn't make the plays we needed in the second half." Rummel looked in command with a 7-0 lead and the ball at the Shaw 21 when Riley had the second of his three forced fumbles, and Brett Adams recovered for the Eagles. Shaw then moved the ball for the first time, driving to the Raider 24 before an Ike Wilson pitchout went off of Murray White's shoulder. Four plays later, Rummel had to punt. Chester fielded the ball on one hop at the 28, broke two tackles at the 35, picked up some blocking, cut back inside and scored. Rummel's touchdown came on a 56-yard drive that started with a Kevin Abboud fumble recovery on the first play of the second quarter. A 27-yard gain by Butch Jeansonne, and Brad Burckel's 14-yard completion to Jeff Schiro helped move the ball to the 10. It took four plays from there with Jeansonne wedging in from the one behind the block of center Alan Dabdoub. Shaw had the only threat of the first quarter when Riley caused and Ruben Rodriguez recovered a Burckel fumble at the Rummel 24. But Shaw drew a procedure call on first down and could only get back to the 24, where Mike Arnold's field goal attempt went wide left.

Rummel 's ability to rebound after a loss has not been a primary concern of Coach George Ryan this season.Ryan's faith in the Raiders to do just that was justified Saturday night in a 14-0 victory over Holy Cross at Tad Gormley Stadium.One week after losing to No. 1-ranked Shaw, 13-7, Rummel scored on its first play from scrimmage and used a physical defense to get the shutout. "This team is not the type that we have to worry about bouncing back," said Ryan. "They just are not like that."Rummel is 1-1 in District 11-AAAA and 3-2 overall. The Tigers are 1-1 and 2-3. Rummel got off to a stirring start. After holding the Tigers on their first possession, Greg Leyrer took a counter handoff from Brad Burckel, broke a tackle at the line of scimmage and went 57 yards for a 7-0 lead at 9:43.bThe Raiders doubled their lead in the second quarter, taking advantage of an 11-yard Tiger punt. Rummel marched 55 yards in five plays. Leyrer hit Jeff Schiro with an 18-yard halfback pass to the 9-yard line. Butch Jeansonne scored on the next play with 8:26 remaining in the half.Rummel had another scoring threat before halftime after an interception by Chris Edler, but the Raiders fumbled at the Tiger 10-yard line.This was followed by a scoreless but not uneventful second half. Rummel fumbled on its first possession, setting the Tigers up at the Raider 35-yard line. Four plays gained 9 yards. Rummel turned it over on its next possession when Burckel could not handle a punt snap at the Raider 26-yard line. But the Tigers were assessed a 15-yard penalty, making it first-and-25 at the Rummel 26-yard line. Two plays later, Ivy Trosclair intercepted to kill the Tiger threat. Holy Cross' Tony Bouie and Rummel's Cornelius Dupard had interceptions in the fourth quarter. Dupard's pickoff was returned 45 yards for a score but was called back on a holding penalty. Rummel drove to the Tiger 1-yard line in the final seconds where Ryan opted to run out the clock without another snap. But a timeout and a penalty resulted in one last Raider play that died at the 4-yard line. Bouie had two fumble recoveries and an interception for the Tigers. Holy Cross running back Ernest Dison gained 104 yards on 21 attempts. Burckel hit 5 of 11 passes for 48 yards, and Jeansonne paced the rushing attack with 87 yards on 22 carrries. "I thought we played very well," said Ryan. "I'm glad things ended like they did at the end. We didn't need another touchdown. Holy Cross had played hard and they deserved some respect." 
On Friday, October 13, running back Rusty Rohm rushed for 171 yards and three touchdowns on 16 carries in a 38-14 District 11-AAAA victory against De La Salle on Friday. October 6 was named The Times-Picayune's East Jefferson Player of the Week. Rohm, a senior, averaged 10.7 yards per carry and helped Rummel gain 319 rushing yards. His touchdown runs of 30 and 33 yards staked the Raiders to a 14-0 lead in the first half. Rohm also scored on a 9-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, and Rummel won its second straight district game.
On Friday, November 3 Brad was named The Times-Picayune's East Jefferson Player of the Week after having rushed for two touchdowns and passed for two to lead Rummel to a 38-7 victory in a District 11-AAAA game against Jesuit on Saturday, September 28. He accounted for three touchdowns in the second quarter. Burckel, a senior, rushed for 80 yards and completed seven of 13 passes for 191 yards. He did not throw an interception.  Burckel threw scoring passes of 45 yards to Jeff Schiro and 32 yards to Steve Dalferes and had a 1-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, as Rummel built a 24-7 halftime lead. 
In December of 1989 Hannan Principal John Serio announced that head football coach Don Perret would not be offered a contract for next season. Perret, 59, was the only head football coach ever at Hannon until this time.  Serio cited philosophical differences as the reason for the change. "This thing has been confusing, but I'm not going to find it, because all that would do is cause problems for the kids at Hannan, and I love them too much for that," said Perret, the head coach at Rummel from 1971-79. "I don't want anyone taking sides or anything. My objective all along was to make the kids at Hannan better Christians, better Americans, and better human beings."

Marc Milano has become Tulane's fourth commitment in football. Milano, a 6-foot-3, 215-pounds, projects as an outside linebacker/defensive end at Tulane. He also received interest from Nebraska, Southern Cal and South Carolina. Milano has 4.6 speed and has passed both academic requirements to sign. "Tulane came across like they were really concerned about him," said Rummel Coach George Ryan. "They had a professional approach and indicated they really wanted him. I think he is an exceptionally good player, and some people one day may be sorry they didn't get him."

Auction Gala

Archbishop Rummel High School rounded up its constituency on December 2 for cocktails, fine foods, an oral auction and a drawing of a trip to London. The night's theme was "Rufus and His Reindeer".  Duke and Rose Marie Goodwin even donated a piece of the wall - the Berlin Wall - and Jerry Rosato did the auctioneering. He was escorted to the stage by school mascot Rufus. The school gym was transformed into a winter wonderland of snowflakes, complete with Santa sleighs, balloons, a candle-lighted walkway, a draped stairway and Christmas trees. The main entrance was a tunnel of snow. Paulette Krail and Ron Mendelson got the decoration kudos. The Rufus and His Reindeer Raider Auction - the mascot's moniker marqueed the merriment - had Carol Braud and Jean Rice as co-chairmen; Brother Peter Tripp, FSC, and Keith Stanton as advisers, and Jim and Cindy Carroll, Pat and Bill Groff, Karen McGoey, Jeanne Augustin, Frank Golemi, Denise Hudson, Mary Shoemaker, Bonnie Wibel, Pat and Gary Hardin and Ron and Sandy Jung as the committee. Making sure that the party folks were properly fueled was Marie D'Arensbourg, who catered the tasty dinner. Tenderloin tips of beef, fettucine, salad and an assortment of desserts filled the bill.
