Junior High Football canceled

Junior High Football canceled

Ask any high school football coach and they will tell you the key to a successful program starts in the lower levels of football.

“One of the reasons the high school teams in LaSalle Parish have been so successful over the past few years has a great deal to do with the football programs at the junior highs and even elementary-level programs,” Jena Head Coach Jay Roark said. “The coaches at our junior highs do a fantastic job of preparing our student-athletes with the fundamentals along with the mental aspect that is crucial as they form their overall toughness for the game.”

This year, due to COVID-19 and Governor John Bel Edwards’ Phase 2 restrictions, both Jena Junior High and LaSalle Junior High have had to cancel their 2020 football seasons.

Photo of the Week…

Photo of the Week…

When you’re 9 years old, you don’t know as much as you think you do. That was the case with me. I was 9 in the year 1949. My Dad listened to baseball several nights on the radio. He was a St. Louis Cardinals fan.

I became a Yankees because some boys at school were Yankee fans. The Yankees and the Brooklyn Dodgers seemed to be in the Worlds series every year. It never dawned on me that “Brooklyn” was in New York city just like the Yankees. The New York

Giants…Who’s that???? Them didn’t seem to be a contender except for Willy Mays. So, it finally hit me that there were three professional baseball teams in New York City.

We didn’t have a professional baseball team anywhere in the South at that time.

Let football practice begin…sort of

Football practice began Monday, August 3, but it doesn’t look like any other year.

To be clear, the LHSAA has allowed summer workouts for football players since the first of June, with strict limitations such as temperature checks, face coverings, and small groups lifting weights and other cardio exercises.

But last week the LHSAA released a memo to all member schools outlining information about the start of the 2020 football season.

The memo basically says that practices can officially begin August 3 but there will be no contact until Louisiana gets into Phase 3.

LHSAA Executive Director Eddie Bonine said that despite the state still being in Phase 2 they will keep their original start date for fall football practice which allowed schools to start practicing August 3.
