Annual Pigskin Preview in this week's edition
Football season returns in style this weekend as jamboree week is welcomed by fans from across Ouachita Parish.
The 2010 Bayou Jamb, an annual high school jamboree presented by St. Francis Medical Center at Malone Stadium at ULM, takes place Saturday. It has been played annually since 2005 and features three games among some of the best high school teams in northeast Louisiana.
This year, the Oak Grove Tigers will meet the Jonesboro-Hodge Tigers beginning at 4 p.m. to kick off Bayou Jamb. The defending Class 5A state champion West Monroe Rebels, ranked No. 1 in Louisiana to begin the 2010 season, will play the Rayville Hornets beginning at 6 p.m. The nightcap will feature the Neville Tigers, the defending Class 4A state champions, battling a district rival, the Bastrop Rams, beginning at 8 p.m. Events surrounding Bayou Jamb will be ongoing all day Saturday on the ULM campus.
The day gets started with the NFL Punt, Pass, & Kick competition for local youth beginning at 9 a.m. There will be live music and a kids fun zone in "The Grove" where parking places for tailgating will be available as well.
Bayou Jamb is looked upon by many local fans as the official beginning of football season.
"This is a great event," said Neville head coach Mickey McCarty, who was on hand Tuesday for a news conference St. Francis Medical Center to kick off Bayou Jamb week.
"There is going to be a lot of people here," McCarty said. "It is the kickoff to football season."
"We are excited about ourselves and we are looking forward to Saturday," McCarty added.
Neville is expected to reload in 2010 after its thrilling 31-15 state championship game win over Franklinton and the graduation of 35 seniors from the 2009 squad.
