JHHS football team appreciative of support giving by coumminity

The Jonesboro-Hodge High School 2021 football season was special for many reasons other than the play of the Tigers during their run to a tri-district championship and the Class AA state semi-finals. One particular area that will be remembered by the JHHS staff and players is the tremendous support given by Tiger fans that was expressed by the numerous meals, desserts, snacks and gifts that were given, especially once the playoffs began. 

“I can’t thank enough the many people, groups and organizations who gave their support by coming, what seems like almost daily, to feed our team over the last several weeks,” said an appreciative Tiger head coach Terrance Blankenship. “Our staff and the guys will always remember each and everyone or you for doing this. It is one thing to hear someone say that they support you but it is another when you see foks coming out of their pockets the way they did. When you feed an entire football team that is no small price that is paid.”

In an effort to show appreciation, Blankenship tried to take pictures each time that the team received something from the community that he has posted on his facebook account.
