Three New Orleans-area teams left the Mercedes-Benz Superdome with state titles last season.
It could happen again this season.
Warren Easton and Destrehan will go for state championships on Saturday, looking to make it another trifecta for the New Orleans area.
Jesuit won the Division I championship late Friday night.
Now Easton and Destrehan hope to join them and give the area three state champions like it had in 2013 when Curtis (Division II), Rummel (Division I) and East Jefferson (Class 4A) all won.
“It’s a huge accomplishment, not only for the Warren Easton community, but the city of New Orleans,” Easton coach Tony Hull said.
Easton will play perennial power Neville at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in the Class 4A state championship game.
Destrehan will follow at 7 p.m. when it plays defending 5A champion Acadiana.
The Wildcats defeated West Monroe 27-22 on Friday to get back to the Dome for the first time since 2008.
“It was the best feeling in the feeling in the world,” Destrehan quarterback Kohen Granier said after Friday’s semifinal win.
Easton receiver Tyron Johnson had similar thoughts after his team’s last-minute semifinal win over top-seed Plaquemine.
“It’s amazing, man,” said Johnson, who scored the game-winning touchdown with 28 seconds left.
“This is something we’ve worked hard for and we finally got it.”
In addition to the two games featuring New Orleans teams, there will be three other games in the nonselect playoffs.
Friday’s action will feature a pair of 1 vs. 2 games that are both rematches from a season ago.
Top-seed Mangham will play No. 2 Haynesville in the Class 1A playoffs at 4:30 p.m., followed by No. 1 Kinder and Many in the 2A game at 8 p.m.
Haynesville, which eliminated West St. John on Friday in the semifinals, beat Mangham 42-21 in last year’s 1A game.
Kinder beat Many 34-20 last year.
In the Class 3A game, set for noon Saturday, Livonia will play Amite.
