Jackets scrimmage Saturday

Jeff Davis High’s football action begins this Saturday in Hazlehurst as the Jackets host Wilcox County in a pre-season scrimmage.
The 2021 season schedule begins Aug. 20 with a non-region matchup with Class AAAA Rutland High School in Macon. That contest is followed by four straight non-region home games against Atkinson County, Brantley County, Tattnall County and Long County. After an open date, the Region 2-AA schedule begins with an Oct. 1 trip to Alma to face Bacon County.
The Yellow Jackets return eight starters on offense and six on defense from the 9-2 2020 team. Among the top returning players are Nate Lewis, 6’3”, 260 lb. senior lineman, Aahiyus Allen, 5’9”, 195 senior running back/safety, and Miyon Connaway, 6’2”, 220 senior defensive end/running back.
This Saturday’s scrimmage opponent, Class A Wilcox County, posted an 8-2 regular season record in 2020, won their first round playoff game 51-0 over Miller County before falling 14-0 to eventual state champion Irwin County in the second round to finish with a 9-3 mark.
