Raekwon James

This week's New Orleans VooDoo Athlete of the Week wears a number 24. That number is very popular this week at John Curtis Christian School.

Raekwon James' jersey number now matches the number of state football titles won by John Curtis.

In a 33-3 win over Winnfield, James jump started the patriots with a 45-yard first quarter touchdown run. In the third quarter, James grabbed a pass from Abbey Touzat in the right flat and raced down the sideline to complete a 42-yard touchdown play.

James is part of a stable of Curtis runners who help the patriots overcome the loss of starting quarterback Patrick Morton mid-season.

"I don't know if I've had a team go through as many difficulties with injuries as this team went through," head coach J.T. Curtis told the players in the lockerroom. "We just continue to band together."

James had 149 all-purpose yards in the championship as was voted John Curtis' most valuable player.
