Peabody's talent goes under the radar 

February, 23, 2010
Hard to believe you record perfect regular season and are still flying under the radar.

If you ask Charles Smith, the veteran coach of Peabody Magnet High in Alexandria, La., he believes his 36-0 Warhorses have gone unnoticed as Louisiana's top-ranked Class 4A team.

Frustrating yes but Peabody won't sneak up on anyone as the 4A postseason kicks in Friday with the bi-district round.
