|Ferriday visits Jennings|
Ferriday High finishes its non-district schedule on the road as the Trojans visit Jennings High Friday.
The Bulldogs are 3-1 on the season, posting wins over Cecilia, St. Louis and DeRidder, while falling to Eunice, 28-21.
Jennings defeated Ferriday 31-19 in Ferriday last year.
"They are very well-coached and playing like a well-oiled machine," said Ferriday coach Cleothis Cummings."They are not real big, but they play with a lot of intensity."
Cummings said quarterback Shannon Morales, who dislocated his shoulder in the first game of the season, may be back in action Friday.
Jennings' win over Ferriday was the Trojans' first Homecoming loss since 2005.
Jennings head coach Rusty Phelps coached at Newellton High and McNeese State before spending the last 19 years at Jennings.
"We're playing better now than earlier in the season," Phelps said. "We're a ball-control offense and we've been working hard on making every possession count."
Phelps knows Ferriday has played a tough schedule.
"I keep up with Mississippi football and know Natchez just beat the No. 1 team in Mississippi (Meridian) and that Wilkinson County has an outstanding team, so their schedule has been tough," Phelps said. "They are very athletic. They can turn a short swing pass into a 20-yard gain. They have tremendous team speed and are very aggressive."
Phelps lost his top running back, Branson LaBouve, before the season for the entire year.
"The first day of pads he suffered a head injury," Phelps said. "They had to take him off the field by ambulance."
Ferriday High will have a charter bus traveling to Jennings. The cost of the bus ride is $30 (not including game ticket). Deadline for sign-up is Thursday at noon.
Ferriday High by noon Friday.
There are only 47 seats available and it is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
