JONESVILLE — The Jonesville Middle School Football Team scored an overwhelming victory over Landrum this week with standout performances by individual players.
In a statement released Friday, Coach Jay Voiselle said that “Evan Threadgill ran through, around, and over the Landrum defense, leading Jonesville to a 38-0 win vs Landrum. Threadgill would score on runs of 65, 30, 45, and add a 2 point conversion in Jonesville’s Pink Out Game.”
Voiselle said that “seventh grade Quartback Ben Black led Jonesville’s passing attack in his first start, connecting with Javaruis Stewart on on a 5 yard TD pass. Black would later hit Tucker Henderson for a 60 yard gain. Black also hit Stewart on gains of 45 and 40 yards. Black added completions to Caleb Bright and Lockhart’s Nick Queen for a few first downs.
Jonesville’s defense was led by Wildcats Caleb Bright and Terry Smith, who Voiselle said each had sacks. He said that Smith also had a fumble recovery. In addition, Voiselle said that Wildcats Hayden Beeler, Branson Cook, Jayden Peterson, and Jace Anderson all had great games defensively for Jonesville.
“Offensively, we just fed the beast, and Evan was definitely the beast tonight,” Voiselle said. “Evan was unstoppable. Ben did a nice job at QB. He had some really nice throws. He ran the offense and protected the football well. Defensively, we stayed disciplined and played extremely well.”
Voiselle said that Jonesville will play Pacolet Thursday at the old Jonesville High School. Both teams are 4-2 and Voiselle’s said this will be both team’s last game of the season. He said the winner will take the Division runner up.
In addition, Voiselle said Thursday is Homecoming for Jonesville, 8th Grade Night, and “Cheerleading with the Wildcats” night. Voiselle said that Jonesville is also set to honor Coach John Henderson and Mrs. Sherry Gregory during the game. He said that festivities begin at 4:30 p.m. with 8th grade night. The game itself is slated to start at 5 p.m.
“This was a great idea brought on by Bruce Cook, so much thanks goes to him,” Voiselle said. “Mayor Ernest Moore has been extremely accommodating in every way possible, even moving some temporary bleachers in. Seating will still be limited, so bring a bag chair if you have one.
“I’m excited, the players are excited, the mayor is excited, the school and community are excited,” he said. “We are looking forward to a great evening.”
