|Jonesboro-Hodge welcomes Ferriday|
Jonesboro-Hodge head football coach Joey Pender is happy to be hosting Ferriday High School in the District 2-2A opener for both teams. He remembers well the trip to Ferriday last year when the Trojans won 33-7.
"It seemed like we never would get to Ferriday," Pender said. "I thought I saw Castro in Cuba by the time we got down there."
All kidding aside, Pender and Ferriday High head football coach Freddie Harrison know how important the first district game is for both teams.
"It's important to get off to a good start," Pender said.
The Tigers are 4-1 on the season, with its only loss being a 14-13 setback to Winnfield. J-H beat Marksville 10-6.
"We're ind of young, inexperienced and have a little speed," Pender said. "We still have a long way to go before we are a good football team. Our kids have a tendency to sometimes not play real hard early."
The Tigers are led by running back Ricky Nichols.
"He can roll, and their quarterback does a good job," said Ferriday High head coach Freddie Harrison. "They are a typical Jonesboro-Hodge team, they have a lot of speed and some big backs who will try to get the edge on you."
Harrison said the Trojans need to keep J-H from taking control of the game early.
"We need to have our heads on straight," he said. "If we bleed, we need to bleed slow and not let them gash us. It's going to be a challenge for us."
