Coach Sam can use our help
Arguably the best high school wrestling coach in Louisiana, Coach Surachai Harnsongkram (Coach Sam) started coaching at Jesuit in 1969.  Within his first three years he would make Jesuit the team to beat in Louisiana. 

His Blue Jays won 18 state championships, including 11-consecutive ones from 1987 to 1998 wham he retired.  He was instrumental in creating the format of the LHSAA state championship Battle of New Orleans and bringing children's wrestling to Louisiana via USA-Wrestling. 

Now we have the rare opportunity to give back to one who has given us so much.
