Giants blow out OCS at Bayou Jamb

By Austin Whatley

Jena High School had a great opportunity this past weekend. The Jena Giants football team was invited to the 10th annual Bayou Jamb held on the campus of ULM. Apparently the word has gotten out that the football team is pretty good and that the Giants have some of the best fans in the state of Louisiana.

It was a great experience for the players and fans and it gave the school some great exposure. From Tony Evans and the Booster Club tailgating in the Grove to the pep rally that highlighted the Jena High School Marching Band, Cheerleaders, and Dance Line. Everyone did their part including the Giants fans who bought all of the Giants allotted pre-sale tickets. The only thing left to do was for the Giants football team to put on a show on the field.

The Giants opponent in the Bayou Jamb would be the OCS Eagles which is a private school in Monroe that competes in Division 4.

Entire JHS football team trained in CPR

-First in the state-

American Heart Association’s Youth Market Director and CPR Instructor Jill Lucero takes her job of training youth in CPR very seriously. Why? Because she knows by personal experience the difference it makes.

“When my son was 15 years old he collapsed at soccer practice and went into cardiac arrest,” Lucero said. “Because someone was there that knew CPR my son lived and now is 22 years old.”

Whitetails Unlimited set to break more records

When Whitetails Unlimited founder and president, Jeff Schinkten, left Ruston one year ago to fly back home to Wisconsin, he set the stage for what he expected to happen this year when the annual banquet of the Lincoln Parish chapter takes place August 10.“I hope I can come back next year to present another award.

This is a special chapter down here and it’s going to make its name in history, I can assure you,” said Schinkten. Unfortunately, Schinkten won’t be making the trip down this year but it’s because of scheduling conflicts; not because the local chapter didn’t win yet another national award for the third straight year. The Lincoln Parish chapter ranks number one - in the nation - for membership for the third straight year. Let that sink in for a minute.
