Jackson_Fan34, I could not agree with you more. They are a fantastic group of coaches at the Jr High level. I hope they get a chance and make the most of it at the high school level.

Nice half time adjustments by Coach Scott against Cape at the christmas tourney. Genius calling time out after seeing personell for Cape in the last minute and then putting McDOwell on Williams.

Nice Job

I think its great the Jackson 8th & 9th grade teams are doing so well. Its a huge step from jr high to high school. Much faster pace. The graduating 2010 and 2011 classes were also undefeated in jr high but things changed. Kids quit, or just stop growing, lots of things happen. Sometimes it doesnt matter how big you are but how much knowledge and heart you have for the game. Watching the high school team this year, you can tell hands down, the few players who truly have a 'heart' for football and will never give up. Looking forward to many years of great Jackson Indian football.

Jackson_Fan34---You are absolutely right about the Jackson 9th grade team. As a Central parent, Central also has a very good 9th grade team and has lost only 2 games in 2 years, both to Jackson and both good games. They often get lost in the stats. The future should be fun if all the boys stay involved in football.

We hear so much about how poorly the Jackson High School football team is doing. Well, I like to say, take a look at the Jr High School teams. Yes, we all know that the Jr High is a building process, but under Coach's Matt Roethemeyer, Austin, and Kitchen, the 9th grade boys are working on their 2nd undefeated season, with one more win, they will have the best record in their division. Sure, for most of you, Jr High doesn't count, but go ask the 9th Grade boys of Jackson Jr High School, ask them if they think their season counts. They are the future players of Jackson and I, among many other parents, think they should get some recognition for the great job they are doing. My hat goes off to head coach Matt Roethemeyer for doing a outstanding job with these boys. Not only are they great players but they also show great sportsmanship on the field. They have two more games left in their season, lets show our future football players of Jackson the support they deserve. The next game is Monday, against PB there, and their last game will be against Seckman, and that one is at home in Jackson. Show our boys support Jackson.


A huge Jackson football fan.
