It has to be fun to be in your stands because you have a PA anouncer that's actually paying attention to the game. We just got a new guy and he's 100 times better than the old one. I'm a Poplar Bluff guy but I enjoy chatting on the Jackson forums about football because I have a respect for the Jackson program and their fans' passion, something that's been lost here, and respect for the game.
Good luck to you this week, Poplar Bluff. It'll be a good game.

Yes our announcer has been doing it for over 20 years now! He goes to every game and tries to even give the players nicknames! In my opinion he is a far announcer and does his job well and he dont even get paid for doing it! He just loves football! Go Indians beat those Mules this week!!

Almost forgot.....Fans need to end the announcers sentence of "there goes another Jackson Indian" "FIRST DOWN!". Pretty sure he felt lonely. Other teams hate that sh*t.
Well maybe the other teams should get first downs when they come to the "Pit"

Wow, you guys need to get you act together. The new smoke tunnel kept you guys from running through the cheerleader made teepee. They just carried it off unbroken. They need to paint over Farmington and paint Bluff. Please somebody bust it up.

Another WoW! Is the holding hands 2x2 on your way to the field. Yeah I get the team thing, but it looks like a wedding. Lose that! It is very gay and very not intimidating. I am for you guys 100%, but we need to sharpen things up. Go Jackson!
Sir/Maam its not gay its a sign of unity and team pride! Im glad to see it and im glad Coach Eckley is teaching these boys more than just football!

The only two losses the Indians will have on their schedule this year will be to the Mules we'll see you this week and later on in district play. Can't wait to visit The Pit and witness a great football game this Friday Night.

Yes, the Indians announcer is the best around. I've been to a lot of games and heard a lot of announcers but he has to be the best! He does the basketball games to and he's really good at it. I know other teams don't like him but he sure does fire up the Jackson crowd. He should do the Semo games their announcer sucks!

Well ain't it nice them there boys have that big ol ballon helmet to run through. I was a wondering if them football folks plan on lugging that new you to all the softball and soccer games also. Sure would be neighborly if everybody got to share its use don't you think? But wait, that might show some acknowledgement that the the sun don't solely rise and shine on just the football bunch. Could have bought a lot of pencils and paper for what was spent on this!

The money for the tunnel was raised by private individuals. It didn't cost the public a dime!

Wow...you completely missed my post. Yeah I want other teams to get first downs. Ha! I hate that we do not back the announcer up, he is awesome. I have talked to the many of the players, and in their terms, "It is gay.". To emphasize quote, unquote. I could care less. Unity can be shown many ways. I wasn't slamming gays.

the football helment was bought by Tim Smith and the spahgettii dinner that we sold tickets too. Have your own fund raisers and quit sucking funds from the football team.

For all you people think Jackson inst any good this year, Quarterback Ty Selsor is the #1 player in the state right now! He has 721 yards already in only 3 games.

You can look it up on maxpreps.com and just search missouri high school football!

He is having a good season so far, but Jackson has not played a team that is good yet. Let's see how he does against Columbia Hickman next month. That is really the only good team on the regular season schedule.
