Most exciting season in history of JHS football

By Billy Fowler

Our Jena High School football team just completed a season that will go down in history as perhaps the most exciting ever.

However, some members of that state quarter finalist team could put up a powerful argument. That game they won in the southern most tip of our state was just as exciting as the Caldwell game.

Let ‘em go so they can grow works for Brad MartinThere

By Glynn Harris

Stuff is really starting to happen in the deer woods around our area. Freezers have been cleaned out making room for the fresh tasty venison that will be added. Occasionally, a hunter gets lucky and downs a buck worthy of wall space in the den.

For some hunters, luck plays a part in the success of downing a trophy buck.

LaSalle Tigers fall to Homer in state playoffs

By Greg Jones

This will be the last story written on the LaSalle Tigers 2017 football season. It was a tough season filled with injuries and still the Tigers held tough week after week.

The Tigers fell to the Homer Pelicans in the first round of the LHSAA state playoffs this past Friday night and folks around the state are calling it an upset. This to me was no upset, because our Tigers were not a full strength and some younger players got their first varsity action in this game.

LaSalle Tigers finish season with big 34-20 win over Block

By Greg Jones

The LaSalle Tigers went into last Friday night’s game looking for answers for the injury plaque that has devastated the Tiger’s roster.

The Tigers have suffered injuries to the quarterback and running back positions. Sophomore running back Zack Dickey has stepped into the quarterback position and given everything possible to the team and that position.

Coming into the Block game, the Tigers were looking for some help for Zack and the offense. So, with all players that have taken a snap this year injured, the coaching staff looked to the offensive line.

Farris’ last minute touchdown pass to Todd gives the Giants a 29-26 win over Caldwell

By Austin Whatley

For the third year in a row the Jena Giants played for a district championship on their home field this past week. Two years ago the Giants defeated the Peabody Warhorses to earn the district championship while last year the Giants lost to Marksville in the district championship.

The Giants were expected to be in this position coming into the season, as they were the favorites to win the district. Their opponent, the Caldwell Spartans, however was not expected to play for a district championship. Many people were picking Caldwell to finish at the bottom of the district standings after they had only 3 wins in the last 3 seasons combined.

LaSalle Tigers fall to Lakeside 55-16

By Greg Jones

The LaSalle Tigers headed to Sibley, Louisiana, to take on the Lakeside Warriors this past Friday night in a non-district matchup. This game would be one that, on paper, should be a good high school football game.

Lakeside coming into this season had been on a winless streak for the past three years, but over the summer they hired a new coach and he came in with plans to win. So, Lakeside was able to turn things around this year. They came into this LaSalle game with a winning record and completely dominated the Tigers.
