Ttelevision, radio and newspaper representatives from all over north Louisiana were treated to the usual good natured jabs and jousting from the “Who’s Who” congregate of north Louisiana prep football coaches this past Monday as the 2022 Bayou Jamb kicked off a week of activities with Media Day.
Held at the Civic Center in Ruston the event featured coaches and players from the 14 schools that will take place in the two day event that has become the largest season opening Jamboree in the state. Included was Jonesboro-Hodge High School head football coach Terrance Blankenship and players Josh Tatum and Dominick Strickland, who were both interviewed by Sports Director, Chris Demirdjian of KTVE Channel 10 out of Monroe.

For the first time in the event’s history, the contests will be played at Louisiana Tech’s Joe Aillet Stadium in Ruston. Three coaches received the Lifetime Achievement Award. OCS legend Micah Harper, Ruston great Tommy Reeder and Scott Stone (posthumously) were honored for their service to the sport, and their community.
Buy your tickets at JHHS: The athletic department at Jonesboro-Hodge asks that you buy your tickets at the school office in order for JHHS to be able to keep 100% of the proceeds. If game tickets are bought at the gate, the school receives only a portion of the proceeds. Tickets are $15.00 per person.
Jonesboro-Hodge plays Franklin Parish at 1:00pm on Saturday, August 27th.
