Thanks to the many J-H supporters the Tigers improbable 42-41 rally over Rosepine, which was one of the most exciting games that has taken place at Caldwell-Peacock stadium in recent history, wasn’t the only victory enjoyed by the team .
The fans of the team gave the footballers two more victories by providing the most votes in the TEAM OF THE WEEK competition held by Channel 8 KNOE-TV in Monroe and K104 radio’s Scoreboard Show BIG WIN OF THE WEEK contest.
“I want to thank our fans for their support,” said Blankenship. “I can’t tell you how much it means to the guys to know that our fans are behind us and want to see us get recognized. “
By virtue of the victory J-H was featured on the Channel 8, KNOE-TV 6:00 and 10:00 pm sports segments last Wednesday after capturing 51% of the vote against three much larger fan bases from West Monroe, West Ouachita and Ruston High schools. Team members Justin Calahan and LaJavion Nichols as well as head coach Terrance Blankenship were interviewed and the team was presented pizzas compliments of Little Ceasar’s Pizza of Monroe.
The K104 Friday Night Scoreboard Show sponsored by Down’s Law Firm also recognized the Tigers by announcing the team as BIG WIN OF THE WEEK on subsequent radio broadcasts and making posts through social media sites Facebook and Twitter.
