Giants come up short at Avoyelles

By Greg Jones. Going into the contest against the Avoyelles Mustangs, the Giants knew that this would be no ordinary high school football game. The Avoyelles Mustangs never punt and always onside kick, but the Giants were ready. Jena recovered every onside kick the Mustang’s threw at them, but the Giants had their hands full with the running game of the Mustangs. Jena did score first when Chevy Thornton went off the right side and scampered 74 yards to the end zone. Craig Walker added the extra point kick and Jena was out in front 7-0 early.

Jena loses homecoming game; falls to 2-3 overall for the year

By Greg Jones.

The stands at Guy Campbell Memorial Stadium were jam packed with alumni for this homecoming 2013 game between the Jena Giants and the Gators of Delhi Charter School. The football field itself has never looked better. Jena took the opening kickoff and kept it only 6 plays before the Gator defense tightened and forced a punt. Delhi Charter could only keep the ball one play before a fumble recovery by the Giants gave possession back to Jena. Once again Jena was forced to punt.

Giant’s comeback effort falls short in Alexandria

Jena Giant Jermarcus Hammock (4) lunges to catch the pass for a touchdown during the Jena vs. Menard away game last week.
By Greg Jones The weather was perfect and the stands were packed for what was about to be a great high school football game. Jena won the toss and deferred the kickoff to the second half. Menard took possession of the initial kickoff and could only manage 5 plays before they were forced to punt by the Jena defense. On the ensuing kickoff Jena could only manage one play before John Leglue, senior lineman, recovered a fumble and ran 17 yards for the touchdown. The extra point attempt was no good and Menard led early 6-0.

Jena beats Block in a wet defensive slugfest

Jena Giants Terrance Purvis (7) and Senior Brady Dearmon (58) fight against the Block Bear line during the Jena vs. Block game last week.
By Greg Jones
 
It was a wet Friday night of football, but not near as wet as it was going to get in Jonesville. The sprinkle of rain didn’t seem to bother either team as the game was getting underway. Jena took the opening kickoff and kept the ball only one play, but this one play was different from the previous two weeks’ opening drives.
