NOTE: Football is sport where the majority of fans may know the names and numbers of the players but seldom see their faces and get to know them personally. In an effort to introduce the members of the 2023 JHHS football team, Jackson Parish Journal correspondent, Clay Williams, presents a question and answer interview series with Tiger players. Today – Symeon Malone!
Meet The Tigers

Symeon Malone, 12th, #4, QB
What are your hobbies outside of football?
I like playing basketball, track, and video games with my friends.
What is your favorite subject in school?
Math, because it’s easy to me. Ever kind of math I always do well in.
What is your best memory from playing football so far?
Making it to the semifinals was a great experience. Getting that taste of semifinal football makes me want to go back.
Who would you say is your biggest motivation in life?
My mom, because she pushes me and talks me through anything that I’m going through in life. I even have her name tattooed on me.
Are there any college or NFL players that you take inspiration from?
I watch a lot of highlights from all of the LSU football team. Two quarterbacks I watch closely for their play styles are Joe Burrow and Lamar Jackson.
What is something important that you have learned from your coaches?
They’ve really taught me everything that I know about playing Quarterback. I started playing football as a wide receiver, and then I switched to QB. So, all of my throwing techniques comes from my coaches.
What are your plans after graduation?
I know that I want to go to college to study computer science, because I’m fascinated by technology. I’d like to attend either Tulane, Grambling, or Louisiana Tech.
Lastly, what are your goals this season for yourself, and the team?
For the team, after getting that semifinals experience, I don’t want to settle for anything less than making it to the Dome. A personal goal of mine, is that I want to score at least 3 times a game.
