PRAIRIE RONDE — We over me. It's not only the motto for Northwest this season, it's the recipe for their success during the Chris Edwards era.

The Raiders have 39 wins over the last 4 seasons, including 3 trips to the Quarterfinals.

Northwest doesn't plan for the train to slow down either. The Raiders have 11 starters returning, including the St. Landry Parish MVP Montaze Sam.

The dual threat QB accounted for over 3,300 yards and 38 touchdowns in total as a junior in 2018

As a senior, he hopes to trust his eyes more than his legs.

"I'm not a pocket passer. I'm mobile. If I don't see something I like I tuck it and run," Sam said. "I know the game is won in the pocket, but if I wanna have a little fun, I do what I do."

2018 Record: 8-4
Head Coach: Chris Edwards
Returning Starters: 11
District: 5-3A
Other Notes: Northwest has won 8+ games over the last 4 years
