Fleur De Lis Data News Weekly Columnist
Happy New Year and of course we are at the beginning of celebrating Black History Month. This is a time where we observe Black Excellence.
Of course, our New Orleans Saints did not make this year’s Super Bowl, but two Crescent City natives will be competing for the Lombardi Trophy in Tampa and Black Excellence will be on full display.
Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu and Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette will take the field for their respective teams trying to win the big one.
Both are graduates of St. Augustine and attended LSU and are now both playing in the NFL. This is something that we all should be proud of seeing our people representing on the world’s biggest stage in sports.
Super Bowl LV will be played on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2021. Kickoff is set for 5:30 p.m. CST. And if you are going to a party to watch the game, please stay safe and enjoy the game where at the end one of our hometown heroes will be holding the championship trophy.
Until next time this is Fleur De Lis signing off, but I ask please take some time not just this month, but all throughout the year reflect on the great accomplishments of those who came before us and be inspired as our struggle for equality and justice continues.
