Notes on the Jonesboro-Hodge Tigers

They Move The Chains: The Tigers return six starters from last year's offense. Quarterback Jamiree Mathis is entering his second full year as a starter. Last year he became more comfortable as the year went on. Up front, the Tigers rely on left guard Garrett Williams, center Chance Williams, and right guard Edward Robinson. Williams is the quarterback of that offensive line that makes all the calls. Robinson is the pull guard, while Williams features a high motor and never quits.

Blitz Patrol: The Tigers defense returns seven starters from last season. Junior safety Jouckiious Scott was the team's leading tackler last year. Senior defensive end DeAndre Rose made the all district team in 2012. Coach Terrance Blankenship says Rose is very athletic, tall, and rangy. Rose and junior defensive end Josh D. Williams both have the potential to lead the team in sacks. Junior Josh K. Williams moves into the starting lineup this season as a linebacker.

Cleats to Fill: Missouri Southern signee Elliot Blankenship started last year at outside linebacker and running back. He was a Top 100 athlete in Louisiana. Senior Juwon Jack and Jamie Williams will have to collectively replace Blankenship on offense. Junior Tyrae Bradford will be counted on to pickup Blankenship's workload at linebacker. Coach Blankenship says Bradford has a nack for finding a way to the football.

Unsung Hero: Wide receiver Treyvonne Callahan is a speedy receiver who is dangerous in space. Coach Blankenship says last year was Callahan's first year playing football and he liked playing slot receiver. As Callahan continues to develop, he will become an even more dangerous weapon.

Ace Watch: Jamiree Mathis has continued to blossom as he gains more experience. Coach Blankenship says Mathis is a threat to run and throw. Mentally he has improved at making pre-snap reads. Mathis likes to throw the ball out quickly and give his elusive receivers a chance to make a play.

Must-See Matchup: Jonesboro-Hodge used to open the season against Winnfield but now the rivals are in the same district. Plenty should be at stake when they collide in week ten.

Postseason Prospects: Jonesboro-Hodge finished last season 4-7 and lost to University Lab. New coach Terrance Blankenship says it's great to be back coaching his old high school. His first priority was to add numbers and depth to the program. Blankenship has succeeded as 52 players will now suit up compared to 36 last season.

Coach Talk: "Now that we have a taste of the playoffs we are motivating them and letting them know there is more to it than just one week. We want them to experience the feeling of winning and going to the next round."

— Jonesboro-Hodge Coach Terrance Blankenship
