Blankenship named Honorable Mention “Coach of the Year” in Class AA by Geaux

After leading Jonesboro-Hodge to a tie of the district 1-2A title and a berth in the Class AA state semi-finals, JHHS head coach Terrance Blankenship has been named Honorable Mention “Coach of the Year” by Geaux

Wayne Stein was named Coach of the Year after his St. Charles Catholic team finished the season with a perfect 11-0 record and won the Division III state championship by beating Lafayette Christian who was going after a fifth consecutive title. Division III schools have basically the same enrollment as Class AA schools but are “select” schools in the LHSAA and play for a separate championship.

Blankenship was one of four Class AA coaches who earned Honorable Mention designation. The other three were Andy Boone of Avoyelles, Trev Faulk of Lafayette Christian and Zeph Powell of Amite.

“I am honored to be named with this great group of coaches for this award,” said Bla nkenship. “This was the most trying year and also the most rewarding one I have ever experienced in all my years of coaching at the same time.”
