Lumberjacks Begin 84A Conference Competition

After three games of hard fought non-conference competition to begin the 2017 football season, the Warren Lumberjacks enter the conference portion of their schedule by facing Crossett Friday evening, September 22nd with the kick off set for 7:00 P. M. at Jim Hurley, Jr. Stadium in Warren.
The Jacks will be seeking another conference title and a spot in the Class 4A state playoffs.

Warren sits at 2-1 on the year having lost the season opener to a very good class 5A LR Christian team and then beating a good 4A team in Stuttgart and another very good class 5A team in Watson Chapel.  The Lumberjacks have been somewhat inconsistent offensively, flashing signs of how talented they are, and pretty solid on defense. They have gotten better and continue to do so.

There is talent on the team and some young talent in key positions. The Lumberjacks have experienced good crowds for the first three games and look forward to strong fan suppport as the conference season begins.

Fans are still talking about the great athletic move demonstrated by Keemontrae McKinight in the third quarter against Watson Chapel as he scored a touchdown for the Lumberjacks on a short pass from J'malachi Kinnard.  It was a thing of beauty to watch.  All of the Warren players stepped up including linemen on both sides of the ball and Warren's defensive backs and linebackers.  The Jacks need to keep improving and stay focused.

Lumberjacks Defeat Watson Chapel

In the last non-conference game of the year, the Warren Lumberjacks defeated the Watson Chapel Wildcats 20-12 at Watson Chapel.  It was a hard fought contest between a highly ranked 4A team and a high ranked and very skilled 5A school.  The Lumberjacks fell behind 12-0 in the first half, but battled back to take the lead in the third quarter and were able to hold on for the victory.

#7 Keemontre McKnight, #53 Davis Pennington, and #52 Donovan Ross defend the Lumberjack territory.
 Warren's defense was outstanding for most of the game, minus a couple of breakdowns in the second quarter, while the offense showed flashes of excellence, but was too inconstant and made several mistakes.  The kicking game was good, but suffered a couple of breakdowns in coverage that gave Watson Chapel good field position.  Warren's defense, however, stood tall each time.

The game started with the Lumberjacks kicking off to Watson Chapel.  Warren forced a punt and the Wildcats responded by intercepting a pass near midfield.  The Jack defense held on downs at the Warren 22 and a short time later Chapel intercepted a second Warren's offense struggled for consistency.  The first period ended 0-0.

Watson Chapel punted on the first play of the second quarter and Warren had to punt back to the Chapel 48.  With 10:32 remaining in the second, Chapel broke a 42 yard touchdown run.  The PAT was blocked and Watson Chapel led 6-0.

The Lumberjacks started deep in their own territory but began generating some offense but fumbled at the Chapel 37.  Later a big run set the wildcats up deep in Warren's end of the field. After a great defensive play in the end zone to break up a pass by Warren's Braden Curry, the Wildcats were able to score from the five yard line.  The point after was no good and Watson Chapel held a 12-0 lead.

The Jacks took over at their own 35 and were forced to punt.  Chapel then punted back and with little time left in the half, Warren scored on a nicely conceived pass from J'Malachi Kinnard to Psavian Person.  The point after missed and the halftime score was 12-6 in Watson Chapel's favor.

Warren received the second half kickoff but had to punt.  The Jacks defense forced another punt and Treylon Burks, who had another great night catching passes, running the ball and playing defense, had an outstanding punt return to the Chapel 36.  After a big catch on third and long for a first down, Burks scored at the 5:29 mark, on a one-yard run, and after the successful point after, Warren had its first lead at 13-12.

The Lumberjacks got the ball back after recovering a fumble and with 2:59 remaining in the third, Kinnard hit Keemontrae McKnight, who made a brilliant move and scored from 26 yards out. Tinoco made the point after and Warren was on top 20-12.

Neither team could muster points in the fourth quarter.  Warren threatened but turned the ball over on downs with 3:55 to go in the game deep in Chapel territory.  Chapel drove into Warren's side of the field but turned the ball over on downs and the Lumberjacks took a knee to preserve the victory.

A number of Warren players turned in outstanding performances..  Psavian Person, Braden Curry, Treylon Burks, Luke Gorman, Damarcus Gilbert, Caleb Watson, Donovan Ross, Wallace Smith and Marcus Miller turned in very good defensive performances.  The entire defense battled hard all night.  Warren's offensive line had some excellent moments, and some inconsistencies. Vincent Stepps again showed his ability as did Keemontrae McKnight both running and catching the ball.  When the game was on the line, Treylon Burks made big plays.  It helped to have Will Woodard back and Davis Pennington was a major force.  Every Warren player put forth great effort and the team did what was needed to win.

The Lumberjacks now return home to face Crossett and begin their defense of the 84A conference title.  The contest is set for Friday, September 22nd at Jim Hurley, Jr. Stadium, with the kickoff to take place at 7:00 P.M.   A large and fired up crowd is needed to support the Lumberjacks as they strive to get better and to win the conference and pursue a run through the state playoffs.

SRC named Marcus Miller as the Arkansas Superior Federal Credit Union Player of the game. He along with the entire defense was superb all night and Marcus was a force shutting down the run and pressuring the quarterback.  He was outstanding!

Week Three of 2017 Episode of The Bo Show Brought To Your By Johnny's Radiator Shop

Churches Feed Lumberjacks

Throughout the football season various churches take turns providing a meal for the Warren Lumberjack Football team on Fridays prior to the game.  Now and again a private business or individual provides the meal, but usually it is a church.  For the first meal on August 29th, Central Missionary Baptist feed the team.  Last Friday, First United Methodist of Warren provided the meal.

The pregame meals give the team a chance bond with the community and keeps the kids together throughout the day leading to game time.  Coach Hembree has followed this policy since he became Head Coach 18 years ago.

Notice in the picture, Lumberjack great Tommy Larance, a member of First United Methodist, serving plates to the players.  Assisting him was Kip Kelly.  Several ladies of the church and Pastor Gary Harrison worked to prepare and serve the food.

Lumberjacks Take Down Stuttgart/Watch Full Game On-Demand

In a hard fought game that experienced numerous penalties and turnovers by both teams, the Warren Lumberjacks put together enough offense and a tough second half defense to put the Stuttgart Ricebirds away 27-13 before a big crowd at Jim Hurley, Jr. Stadium Friday evening, September 9th.  The Lumberjacks again seemed to be out of rhythm on offense at times.  After receiving the opening kickoff Lumberjack quarterback J'malachi Kinnard appeared to get hurt in some way.  He sat out the rest of the first half but came back and played to help Warren win in the second half.

It was an unusual game for the Lumberjacks on offense after Kinnard was hurt.  Treylon Burks played quarterback most of the game running out of a shotgun power formation.  He became a runner from a no back formation and gained 84 yards and scored all four touchdowns for the
Jacks.  Tenth grader Logan Mann ran a number of plays at quarterback when Warren went back to its basic spread offense.  Mann was not asked to pass but seemed to do a good job managing the offense.  It may be the first time in many years that three different players experienced time as quarterback in a single game for Warren.  Vincent Stepps again ran well.

The Lumberjack defense, while struggling at times trying to stop the pass seemed to get better as the game went forward.  Warren gave up zero points in the second half.  The defensive line was dominant against the run and the linebackers seemed to improve.  Psavian Person played well. Warren put pressure on the Stuttgart quarterback all night.

The Warren kicking game was solid with Jesus Tinoco kicking off well most of the night and hitting three of four extra points.  The one missed did not appear to be his fault.  Burks punted well all evening.

Warren took the opening kickoff and moved the ball before Stuttgart intercepted an overthrown pass at the 10:29 mark.  After punts were exchanged, Warren's Psavian Person intercepted a Stuttgart pass deep in Stuttgart territory.  Treylon Burks ran in for a touchdown from 15 yards and Tinoco converted to put Warren up 7-0.  With only 14 seconds left in the first quarter, Stuttgart scored on a two yard run and made the point after to tie the game.

Burks scored again for Warren with 6:33 left in the second quarter on a three yard run and again Tinoco hit the PAT.  Warren led 14-7.  The Lumberjack's Braden Curry had a big interception in the end zone to stop a Stuttgart drive.  Shortly thereafter Burks threw a beautiful deep pass to Keemontrae McKnight to set Warren up inside the Stuttgart five yard line.  Burks then scored form the one and Tinoco converted to put Warren up 21-7.  With little time remaining in the half after a Warren pass interference call, Stuttgart score on a one yard run but missed the point after.  The Jacks led at the half, 21-13.

Neither team scored in the third quarter but Kinnard came back to play quarterback for Warren.
The teams continued to exchange punts.  With 9:15 left in the game and Stuttgart driving in Warren territory, Stuttgart fumbled and Keemontrae McKnight recovered for the Lumberjacks. Warren drove the field, mostly on the power running of Burks and he scored on a ten yard run with 4;42 left in the game.  The PAT was no good making the score 27-13.  On the final drive, Kinnard came back in at quarterback and hit Burks with a big third and long pass for a first down.  Stuttgart turned the ball over on downs with 1:50 remaining in the game and the Lumberjacks ran out the clock to win 27-13.

The Lumberjacks will travel to Watson Chapel September 15th to play a final non-conference game before beginning 84A competition.  Chapel is a very good 5A team.

The Warren offensive line welcomed back Davis Pennington from injury for the Stuttgart game and he seemed to handle it well.  The offensive line had some very good plays during the game, but needs to improve its consistency.  Lineman Will Woodard sat out the entire game due to an injury.  Hopefully he will be back soon.

Make plans to have a big crowd at Watson Chapel Friday night and support the Lumberjacks!

Jr. Jacks Fall/7th Grade Wins

The Warren Jr. Jacks fell to the Hamburg Jr. Lions Thursday night, September 7th at Jim Hurley, Jr. Stadium 35-6 while the 7th Grade Jacks won 34-20.  The Jr. Jacks moved the ball well at times but had four turnovers and struggled stopping the run.  The 7th Grade was tied 12-12 at the half but put on a strong second half showing to pull away and win.  Both teams showcased some talent and will keep working to get better.

Next Thursday, September 14th both teams will play the Dollarway Jr. Cardinals in Warren.  The games were scheduled to be played at Dollarway, but have been reset for Jim Hurley, Jr. Stadium due to problems with the Dollarway facilities.   

Lumberjacks to Battle Ricebirds Friday Night

The Warren Lumberjacks will face off against the Stuttgart Ricebirds in the season's home opener Friday night, September 8th.  The Jacks are coming off of a tough loss to 5A LR Christian while the Ricebirds will be trying to bounce back from a loss to Arkadelphia.  Stuttgart is picked first in conference 2-4A and is considered the number #4 ranked team in class 4A by Hootens.  They are a good team.

Stuttgart like Warren has a new quarterback running the offense in 2017 and like the Lumberjacks have some new starters in key positions.  Like Warren they have talent.  The game is an early season major contest by two very good 4A schools.  The two teams faced each other twice in 2016, once in regular season and once in the playoffs.  Warren won both  times in very competitive games.

The Lumberjacks are looking to improve on both sides of the ball in game two of the year.
