COACH REGGIE ROGERS IS REBUILDING TRADITION AT BONNABEL.
By Super Scout Max Emfinger
Coach Reggie Rogers Rebuilding A Once Rich Football Tradition At Bonnabel!
On Saturday, I felt extremely Privileged and Honored to be a Guest Scout of Bonnabel High School Head Football Coach Reggie Rogers at one of his last few remaining Spring Football Practices before his Final Spring Football Scrimmage on Thursday May 21, 2015.
Coach Rogers is finishing his Fourth Year at his Old Alma Mater and he has done a really tremendous job at a Large 5A School in a Very Tough New Orleans District. Before Coach Rogers got back to Bonnabel, there were a lot of Potentially, Talented Football Players walking the Halls of Bonnabel High School that were not playing Football, but Coach Rogers has done an exceptional job of helping to change that.
The First thing that Really Impressed me when I met Coach Rogers was that he is such a “Player’s Coach” to his Players, just like my Two Coaches; Coach Gordon Wood and Coach Catfish Smith were to me, and his Players Love him for it, just like we Loved our Two Coaches.
Another thing that Really Impressed me at Practice was that there were only 25 Players at Practice. We joked after Practice about the other team could only play Eleven at a Time.

Coach Rogers is also a Great Community Guy, as Evident that Coach Rogers and I are beginning to develop some plans for a Super Elite Top Gun Combine/Camp in the New Orleans Area.
With this type of Coaching Attitude, Coach Rogers gets out into the Community and meets with his Players and their Parents. It’s also obvious that Coach Rogers will always have the Best Interests of all of his Players at heart all all times.

When Coach Rogers was playing Running Back at Bonnabel, it had a Great Tradition as being a Great Football Power and Talent-Rich Football-School and he is trying to rebuild that Rich-Tradition, because he knows how it feels to be a Bruin Football Player.
Coach Rogers graduated from Bonnabel High School in 1992 after Rushing for 1,008-Yards and 13 Touchdowns in 1991; in their Wing-T Offense. Coach Rogers also averaged 6.8-Yard Per Carry. He was also selected as The Times-Picayune East Jefferson Offensive Player of the Year. He then went on to play Running Back at Nicholls State.
At the Bonnabel Spring Practice, I also Found Four Players for My Twelveth Annual 2016 All-American Bowl Game. Two Players Are Speed-Freaks with Maximum Speed Measurables; one Player is a Shotgun Center Snapper with Great Leadership; and the Fourth Player is a Very Talented, Athletic Quarterback with Great Leadership Qualities and a Best of 10.7 in the 100M.
