BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The Catholic High football team has released its schedule for the 2020 season and it includes a game hosting a national powerhouse.

The Bears will start its campaign on the road against crosstown rival Parkview Baptist before hosting nationally ranked IMG Academy out of Bradenton, Fla. It will be the first time IMG has played a high school football game in the state of Louisiana.
