Good Counsel (Olney, Maryland) climbs into the Top 25 this week after a season-opening 28-21 road victory over St. Joseph Regional (Montvale, New Jersey). This week, the Falcons will host another nationally-ranked team in Catholic High School from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, which is ranked No. 69 in the latest High School Football America 100 powered by NFL Play Football.
Amazingly, Catholic was able to get out of Baton Rouge on Thursday, three days after Hurricane Ida hit the city. In an attempt to help those affected by the horrific storm, the Good Counsel football family has been holding a fundraiser.
According to Good Counsel head coach Andy Stefanelli, one of his football parents has been asking for the donation of gift cards to places like Home Depot, Target and WalMart. The gift cards will be given to the football program Friday night, so they can take them back into the Baton Rouge community.
Below, you can listen to Coach Stefanelli talk about the fundraiser and Friday’s showdown.
