Middle school football action from last week saw Jonesville wrap up their season with a 20-18 loss to Whitmire. They finished the season with a 5-3 record. Coach Jay Voiselle filed this report:

Ben Black led the Wildcats again in passing, going 16/26 for 283 yds. and 3 TDs.  Leading in receiving was Khristian Means with 6 grabs for 110 yards and 2 TDs.  The defense was led by Mason Henderson Jamayne Henderson, Will Turner, and Nick Queen.  

 

"Two turnovers, two red zone opportunities not successful, defense not lined up right versus a few of Whitmire's formations, that's all on me.  My guys played their butts off.  I hurt for them.  Hats off to Whitmire in an exciting game that went down to the wire."

 

Passing:  Ben Black 16/26 283 3TD 1 INT

 

Rushing:  Cameron Owens 6/5; Ben Black 3/15


Receiving:  
Khristian Means 6/110 2TD; Nick Queen 3/55;  Will Turner 3/50; Cameron Owens 1/8; Alijah Wood 1/30 1TD; Jaraylin Gregory 2/30

 

Defense:  Mason Henderson 12 tackles, Jamayne Henderson 10 tackles, Will Turner 7 tackles, Nick Queen 7 tackles, Javion Brannon 4 tackles, Ja'Raylin Gregory 4 tackles.

 

"I could not be more proud of a group of guys.  We had a lot of question marks heading into this season, returning only 6 eighth graders.  Coach Henderson agreed to come back and volunteer, which was huge.  We lost another coach, but added two in Mark Ireton and Craig Stewart, who turned out to be amazing additions.  We had injuries to some key players.  We had a lot of adversity through the season.  Last year our saying was "sacrifice and brotherhood".  This year it was "trust".  First we had to trust God.  Then we had to trust each other.  Third, we focused on attitudes and hard work.  We did those things and as always, football brings forth excellent life lessons.  This group allowed Jonesville to finish second for a third year in a row, which was just one of many goals they hit on through the season.  I wish those eighth grade brothers leaving much success at UC, and I'm expecting big things from those 19 seventh graders returning next year."
 

"There are so many things that go on behind the scenes and so many to thank, but special thanks to West Springs Baptist, Jonesville Baptist, and Oakbrook Community Church for sponsoring our team meals and doing team devotions before every game this season.  Special thanks also to JEMS PTO, FCA, and JEMS administration for their behind the scenes work and contributions this year.  I also know these coaches and players enough to speak for them in saying we thank God that we have our feet here in this wonderful community of Jonesville and are thankful that He allows us to continue to do special things here."  

Sims 8th-grade football finished their season Thursday, falling to Florence Chapel, 44-24. Sims scored on their first two drives of the game, but they trailed at the half, 14-12. After a pick-six, Sims trailed 22-18 late in the third quarter. Following a controversial turnover on downs, Florence Chapel added another touchdown. A Sims turnover led to another Florence Chapel score, and at the end of the third quarter, Sims trailed, 37-18.

The Jonesville Wildcats dominated the Landrum Cardinals 28-0 Tuesday, at Landrum, in a game that was moved up due to bad weather forecasts.  The Wildcat defense played excellent football throughout the contest, holding Landrum to their first scoreless outing of the season.  This was the Jonesville defense's second shutout of the season.

 

After an opening defensive stop by the Wildcats, Ben Black and the Jonesville offense marched down the field.  Black found Will Turner for a 40 yard TD pass and catch.  Black completed to Nick Queen for the 2 pt. conversion to make it 8-0 Jonesville.  Excellent defensive play by Turner, Nick Queen, Khristian Means, and Mason Henderson, allowed another defensive stop for the Wildcats.  Back on offense, Alijah Wood would cap off a 60 yard drive with a 35 yard TD reception from Black.  Black found Wood again for the 2 pt conversion, making it 16-0, Jonesville at the half.  

 

Jonesville received the ball heading into the second half and continued to move the football.  The second half, Cameron Owens and his Oline took to the ground.  Jameson Holt, Grayson Gossett, John Bogan, Jacob Gates, and Mason Henderson paved the way for Owens on a 75 yard TD drive.  Owens would take it in from 15 yards out for another Jonesville TD. The 2 pt conversion failed as Jonesville led 22-0. 

 

The defense continued to dominate.  Will Turner had another one of his numerous interceptions on the season.  Mason Henderson, Queen, Means, Black and Wood also finished with multiple sacks and tackles for a loss.  After another stop, Owens and his Oline continued to dominate.  Owens added to the Wildcat score with a 65 yard TD run.  The 2 pt. conversion failed as the Wildcats made it 28-0.  

 

Nick Queen, Khristian Means, along with Wood and Turner led receiving for Jonesville.  Jason Lemons and Will Farr also added grabs for the Wildcats.  Ben Black once again led in passing, adding 2 more TDs to his total on the season.  Javion Brannon, Jaylen Glenn, Jamayne Henderson, Black, and Tavares Davis also had a great game on defense for Jonesville.
