Giants blow out Block 46-0 to improve to 3-0

By Austin Whatley

The Block Bears came to town this past Thursday to take on the Jena Giants and left Jena with a crushing 46-0 defeat.

The two teams are on the opposite ends of the spectrum in high school football with the Bears coming into the game 0-2 on the season and looking to find anything to give their team some momentum.

The Bears have had some rough years since Head Coach Bennie Vault left to take head job at Peabody. This year though, Coach Vault returns to the Block sideline looking to get the program back on track.

LaSalle falls in home opener to Sicily Island

By Greg Jones

The LaSalle Tigers offensive struggles continue as they just couldn’t get out of the gate last Friday night against Sicily Island during LaSalle’s first home game of the season, losing to the visiting Tigers 12-6.

The ground and pound game that LaSalle is known for has been stalled for some unknown reason this year and it happened again against Sicily Island. The Tigers were able to move the ball up and down the field but just couldn’t get in the end zone - either by penalty or Sicily Island able to just line up and disrupt the play.

The Tiger defense was stingy all night, holding Sicily Island to minimal gains on each play, but two busted plays were Sicily Island’s saving grace. They were able to score on 49 and 43 yard plays respectively.

Giants pick up big 41-0 win over Rayville

By Austin Whatley

The Jena Giants came into week 2 of the LHSAA football season sky high after blowing out the Winnfield Tigers in week one. The Giants would welcome the Rayville Hornets to town and would look to start the season 2-0 for the second straight season.

Rayville has always been an athletic team that relies on their team speed and this year would be no different. The Giants would try to use their speed and strength to counter the speed of the Hornets.

The captains for the Giants would be Shaun Todd, Zyrek Norl, Aaron Boyette, and Casey Spicer.

LaSalle blanked by Caldwell 42-0

By Greg Jones

The weather was not friendly on this night as the Tigers faced an uphill battle all night at Caldwell Parish High school on Friday night.

The Tigers could not get the offense going on the rain soaked field and that left the Spartans in the driver’s seat all night. Caldwell would take advantage of mishandled snaps on special teams and use a short field to take an early lead.

The Tigers would only have one turnover on the night, but blocked punts and punt returns out of nowhere would doom the Tigers. Caldwell would score 22 points in the first quarter and only have 20 yards of total offense.

Tigers fall in triple overtime to Beekman Charter 40-36

By Greg Jones

The LaSalle Tigers were looking to answer some questions they had from last year when the 2018 season officially got underway last Friday night. These questions would get answered on this night.

One question the Tigers were asking was how would the guys that were injured last year be able to make a full comeback? These guys did come back in a big way.

Longtime LaSalle coach to be honored

It will be a special night at Guy Campbell Memorial Stadium Thursday night, August 30, as the Jena Giants open their 2018 season against historic rival Winnfield. Making the night extra special is the recognition of LaSalle Parish’s football coach with the most wins: Mack Fowler.

“We wanted to do something for the man who coached LaSalle Parish athletes for some 26 years and has the most wins in football of all coaches including his time as La- Salle and Jena’s head coach,” Jena Head Coach Jay Roark said. “It will be a night to recognize him for all those years and successes.”

Titled “Mack Fowler Night,” the celebrations will begin at 5:30 in the Home Economics building of Jena High where friends, former players, coaches, educators, etc., can visit with the coach before the game. Refreshments will also be provided during this reception.

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.”
