Coach James Shiver grew up in the small town of Church point where football was life and peewee football started in 2nd grade. Even at a young age, Catholic Education was important to Coach Shiver as he attended Our Mother of Peace Elementary until completion. Coach Shiver then journeyed to Saint Edmund High School and became a member of the graduating class of 1994. One of his most found memories while attending St. Edmund was helping build the Bluejay football field between his Junior and Senior year. Coach Shiver vividly remembers winning the first game the team ever played on that field — a 48-6 shellacking of rival Sacred Heart of Ville Platte.
Now blessed with the opportunity to return home to his Alma Matter, Coach Shiver feels he has been given the greatest honor in all of his coaching career. When asked why he has decided to return to St. Ed’s, he proudly replies, “When they call you to come home, you don’t ask questions you just go home. It’s my team and they are calling my number. I accept the responsibility and I will give it all I have.”
