Yes I92 there will be a stable of backs .
Blake Mcoy SR, wherever he plays, will be a the threat to go to the house each time he touches the ball. He is fast and has great vision and not afraid of contact.

Reid Evans JR is another Burner who is very shifty.
Brody Landrum JR is a downhill harsnosed runner.
Kendal Neal SR may Carry the ball some out of a full house backfield. Hard nosed kid.
Matt Humphreys JR has went back and forth from fullback to guard but if needed he can carry the rock .
Caleb Haller JR is another bruiser who gets downhill .
Brice Graham SO is a combo of speed and power and I think he'll be involved in thw offense more this season.

Replacing 4 year starter and pound for pound one the thoughts kids I've ever seen play on Johnny Farley will be rough but Jackson has some kids who should step up.
I would like to see the Ironmen go to a full house backfield more and say here we come try and stop it.

With the loss of the best passing QB Jackson has had and the line has another year under their belt teams better be fully committed to stopping the run.

Are you going to have an offensive line or a defense that resembles anything like 2014?

The backs don't scare me, I think we can match anyone's "athletes".

Will you have the personnel (with experience) that can go unbalanced and block and/or trap out of it and move the defensive front around? From the post above there seems to be some size. 2014's offensive line execution was very good.

The defense that year was also pretty solid also, will you have similar personnel? I know some of our recent freshman games of a year or two ago had some Jackson players that were good.

Week 5 should be another good game I think that will be closer than the last couple of years.

I completely forgot about Caleb Storms . 5 10 190lb senior who is hard nosed as they come abs can fly. He runs Like a back should run. Hell wreak havoc on offense and defense .

If Jackson does what Jackson does and runs full house and plays smash mouth football they'll be in every game .

The o-line will be very good and the defense will be very good. Week 5 will be a close battle

Im guessing 7-3/6-4! Burg won't be close, Chilli and Curthouse can, and should, beat them.

I don't see Jackson losing four games this year. These three grades (Sr,Jr, and Soph) look to be been some tough special classes. But I am also an outsider looking in.

They for sure have a lot of potential but all that means is they haven't accomplished a darn thing yet. Games will be won now , before and after school in the weight room. Depends on how many kids buy in and who wants it be about the individual . These are factors that can't be seen or factored into teams until they rear they ugly head. If the kids check their ego at the door this could be another good run for the Ironmen . If it all about individuals they'll be around 6-4 or 5-5

Jackson should go at least 8-2 unless Jackson has a huge drop off. Chillicothe and Burg will be the big games. The other 8 should be wins

We'll see raider . Court , trace , Hillsboro won't just lay down for Jackson .

It seems like the battle now is year in year out getting kids to buy into their roles and keeping feelings from being hurt. It's a different era

If Jackson has a QB that can pass and run they will continue as they have been.

Jackson will have several option at qb in my opinion. In no particular order.
Kendal Neal Sr big strong kid , has played qb in the past .
Peyton speakman Sr knows the offense , was backup last season, smart player.
Cooper Donaldson Jr played wide out last season, has qb for many years. Has good arm , good height , good enough speed to play it
Blake McCoy Sr probably fastest player on team, excellent player make with ball in hands, not sure if he's ever been behind center
Ty Ruckel So has qb for 3 years, knows the offense , strong kid .

Coach Hall will find a qb with this crop of players .

I think this years Jackson qb will juat have to run the offense , don't turn the ball over , let the big boys up front and backfield chew up yardage

Just saw that Jackson has finalized their scrimmages for the 2017 season.

August 8th @ Logan Elm - 10:00AM
August 12th @ Cabell-Midland (WV) - 6:30PM

Two very solid tests before the season begins.

I heard that too. They said he can throw 50yds into a trash can. Hopefully Jackson can revive a playoff run that is much need for Hall.

Pretty quiet so far this summer.

How has Jackson done at their 7-on-7s lately?

McCoy definitely playing QB, or is Icenhower from Point gonna contend for the starting job? Blake McCoy is a fantastic athlete. He would be a nightmare for opposing defenses with the ball in his hands on every play.

lol Ironman02 now come on does it really matter how Jackson does in their 7 on 7's?

I mean we know that they are gonna line up heavy and smash and counter people all day long.

FWIW from some of my Jackson connections - this team is going to surprise everyone.

Lol. That's probably true, but Jackson has definitely been throwing the ball more since Coach Hall's arrival, especially last season. I would imagine the running game will be the bread and butter this season, though, as you said.

I have pretty high expectations for this team. The schedule, overall, is a little less difficult. However, with such a tough region, they may need 9 wins to make the playoffs. I think they're talented enough to do that. Interested to see how things turn out, and especially looking forward to the game with Wheelersburg. You guys have taken 4 out of 5 from us, right? We owe you and then some! :D

Just for fun, anybody know what's on the menu for the boys during two-a-days? Nobody does it better than the Ironmen Mother's Club, I remember back in the day when we had real two-a-days we'd get buffets from KFC, McDonald's, Giovanni's, Mother's Club Covered dishes, as well as a few other restaurants I can't remember. Unfortunately, your enjoyment was short lived because you learned soon enough you couldn't really eat much because it was coming up during the afternoon session.

Sounds like Jackson had a solid first scrimmage.

The scrimmage this Saturday against Cabell-Midland should give them a good idea of where they stand. Midland was too much for them in the season finale a year ago, so hopefully the Ironmen can play well this time around and build even more confidence heading into the season.

Heard they lost 21-14 to Cabell Midland. Cabell is the real deal and I really like this scrimmage for the Ironmen. Definitely stuff to improve on but they beat us pretty handily last year.

Jackson was moving players in and out alot, after the 1st td several of the 1st team was not in. I think the O line really struggled. All in all Jackson did well. Midland has a monster Team, so i think Jackson will be a force to reckon with for sure.

I heard the oline looked good but had trouble giving enough time on passing plays

Good work by both teams . Great scrimmage for Jackson . Midland is a monster and Jackson will see very few if any teams with that much talent. No major injuries and coaches have some good film to dissect and show these boys what they need to fix .

Jackson did not have anytime to throw the ball, jackson was blowed off the line, except for maybe 1 player. Several plays were suppose to be quick passes and still didnt have time. This tells me O line needs work, im sure they will make adjustments. Jackson is still going to be very strong this year. Midland is huge and has many D1 athletes.
