St. Louis is a class 3A private school that plays in the select brackets of the playoffs which includes all private schools. The Giants have played a couple of teams from the same district as St. Louis as they lost to Westlake two years ago in the first round of the playoffs and last season they beat South Beauregard in the first round.

By Austin Whatley

The Jena Giants football team started their regular season this past week by welcoming an old friend to town. Former Jena offensive coordinator Whitney McCartney brought his Franklin Parish Patriots to town.

Coach McCartney who is a longtime friend of Jena head coach Jay Roark also had a big hand in the success of the Giants during his tenure in Jena. During the two seasons that coach McCartney was in Jena the Giants won 20 of 24 games and made it to the second round of the playoffs both seasons.

So it would seem a little odd to see Coach McCartney on the opposite sideline for this one. The captains for the Giants were seniors Daniel Moss, Trelon Jones, Wesley Humphries, and Cameron Jackson.

The LaSalle Tigers were able to put a notch in the win column last Friday night in Olla. They welcomed in Beekman Charter School from Bastrop, who did win the season opener last year in triple overtime.

In the opening possession of the game Beekman Charter would be turned away by a defense that would fly to the ball all game. On the 8th play of the opening drive, looking at a 4th and short yardage situation, Beekman decided to go for it and Griffin Peppers would record his first sack of the game.

This would turn the ball over to the Tiger offense that would utilize a nineplay drive ending with a Kade Hillestad to Zack Dickey 17-yard connection for a touchdown. Hunter Daigneault would come in and add the extra point for the Tigers to take a 7-0 lead.

The LaSalle Tigers had a final dress rehearsal against Tensas Parish High School Saturday night (Aug. 31) in the Vidalia Jamboree, beating Tensas 27-14 in the two-quarter contest. The Tigers were able to move the ball at will against the Tensas defense.

The scoring started in the first half when senior quarterback Kade Hillestad found the endzone on a designed run from 14 yards out and Hunter Daigneault added the extra point.

The Tigers’ defense was stingy with yardage all night led by senior defensive end Logan Mathews, who finished the game with 3 sacks.
