Winnfield Middle beats J-HMS in battle between classmate coaches

There is a very ironic twist that is taking place between the Jonesboro-Hodge and Winnfield rivalry. What used to conjure up feeling of ill will and bad tidings toward one another has in the last couple of years turned into a class reunion. 

It all started when 1990 JHHS graduates Terrance Blankenship and Jay Watson squared off against each other as the opposing coaches. Now, thanks to a couple of hires over the summer, it has happened again at the Junior High level as 2014 JHHS graduates Chance Williams and Tre’Vaun Calahan walked opposing sideline for the season opening Junior High Jamboree held at the J-H Middle School field. 

In what looks to be the first of many “reunions” Williams and his Winfield bunch got the best of the local Tigers. The good news for J-HMS is that this one didn’t count on the record and Calahan will get another shot at his friend when later in the season.
