Tiger football: 2022 schedule released – 3 new commitments announced

The 2022 football schedule for Jonesboro-Hodge has been released. Featured is two home games against Class 5A opponents, seven new opponents and the return of a long-time tradition of playing Winnfield in the last game of the season.  

The first of the ten games that are scheduled will take place on September 2nd when the Tigers make the long trip to Lake Providence to play General Trass in a battle of the district champions from the two north Louisiana districts last year. 

Next up the Tigers will host Class 5A West Ouachita who will be looking to revenge the upset at the hand of JHHS last season. Back-to-back road trips to Bunkie and Lincoln Prep follow before JHHS hosts another district 2-5A member in Pineville. The contest has historical bearing in the fact it will be the first time in Tiger history that two Class 5A schools will not only be played in the same year but also coming to Caldwell-Peacock stadium. 

District 3-2A play will close out the regular season starting with J-H traveling to Red River (Coushatta), Mansfield and defending Class AA state champion Many over three straight weeks. The final two games see the Tigers host Lakeview and Winnfield, which has been designated as Senior Night. 

Homecoming will be determined when the 2022 school calendar is released but most likely will be slated for the October 28th game against Lakeview.

They join Tiger running back Brantrel Thompson, who committed prior. 

Javeon Andrews has also made his decision, one that will take him a little further west to Mary Hardin – Baylor University, located in Belton, TX.
