5 bold Big Bend football predictions from prep sports reporter Jack Williams

Mirror mirror on the wall. Who is the 2022 All-Big Bend Player of the Year?

Well, I can’t tell you that. However, I can give you a few other bold predictions I have for the upcoming football season. We’re only halfway through the summer season, so there’s tons and tons of football to be played, but these are some guesses I have so far.

Remove the crystal ball and mark the wire lighting. Here are my five bold predictions for the Big Bend football season.

#1: Jefferson Co. posted first winning record since 2018

Jefferson County quarterback Haven Francis looks to find an open receiver against North Florida Christian in Monticello on Friday, Sept. 10, 2021.

It’s been a tough 2018 for the Tigers. Since 2018, after going 7-5 and reaching the 1A Region 2 championship game, Jefferson County has gone 5-26, going 0-9 in 2020. However, there has been a change in the tides at Monticello, which reflected well on the program at the beginning of.

The hiring of Lenoris Footman as the program’s next head football coach was the school district’s first official hire as an independent body. Footman was a quarterback when Jefferson County won the state title in 2011 and rejuvenated the program from a coaching standpoint. There is new life and new hope in Jefferson County and new confidence to win.
