St. Augustine High School won the New Orleans Saints annual HSPD 7-on-7 Regional Tournament presented by the Louisiana National Guard at the team’s facility on Airline Drive in Metairie on Saturday.

The Purple Knights will now represent the Saints at the NFL's National 7-on-7 Tournament in Cleveland (July 11-13).

“We are excited about the national tournament,” said St. Augustine Head Coach Cyric Crutchfield. “It’s going to be something special. We want to thank the Saints, the National Guard, the Benson family and (Saints Youth Programs Director) Jason Trosclair for having us here and giving us the opportunity.”

12 high school teams from around the area competed in the non-contact 7-on-7 double elimination tournament which began at 8:30 am and wrapped up around 5:30 pm. Each team consisted of 12 players and two coaches. Games took place on the indoor and outdoor practice fields.

St. Augustine defeated Eleanor McMain Secondary School, Lusher Charter School and Isidore Newman School in the first three rounds. After falling to West St. John in the semifinals, St. Augustine defeated McDonogh 35 in the loser’s bracket to get a rematch with West St. John in the championship round.

St. Augustine won back-to-back contests in the championship round against West St. John to punch their ticket to the national tournament in Cleveland. Senior wide receiver Jermaine Roberts made an incredible acrobatic touchdown catch in the final seconds of the last contest to seal the win for the Purple Knights.
