Meet the Tigers: Starting QB is talented but ranks are thin

The good news is that Jonesboro-Hodge has one of the more talented and experienced quarterbacks in north Louisiana. The bad news is that the ranks are very thin behind him. Tydre Malone begins his senior season with 1 1/2 years of starting experience under his belt where he has amassed 108 completions in 213 attempts for 1845 yards through the air in a total of 13 games. Included are 20 touchdown strikes and only 8 interceptions. 

It looks like it would be in the Tigers best interest to keep him healthy this season as the three players behind him have attempted only two passes between them in varsity action. Those belong to fellow senior Justin Calahan, who is the starting wide receiver. Junior Dominick Strickland and Sophomore Symean Malone round out the squad.

“We are very thin at Quarterback and need to have Tydre stay healthy for us this year,” said JHHS head coach Terrance Blankenship. “The other guys are good athletes but just don’t have any experience.”
