Lumberjacks Notch Opening 84A Conference Win

Photo by Ardarius Harding
The Warren Lumberjacks traveled to Crosset Friday, September 23, to face the Crossett Eagles in the opening conference game of the 2016 season.  Warren was a heavy favorite to win but injuries and an inspired Crossett team made the game a battle.  Warren trailed at halftime 21-17 but rose to the occasion and won 44-27.

The Jacks took the opening kickoff and marched down the field scoring on a two-yard run by quarterback Hayden Lassiter.  Sergio Yepes made the PAT, and Warren lead 7-0.  However, Crossett returned the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown, and after missing the point after, Warren still lead 7-6.

On the first play after the kickoff, Lassiter hit Treylon Burks across the middle for a big gainer only to have the ball fumbled back to Crossett.  With 4:09 in the first quarter, Crossett scored on a 33-yard run on 4th down.  With a successful 2-point conversion, Crossett took a 14-7 lead.  With 1:17 left in the quarter Lassiter scored on an 11-yard run, and Yepes made the score 14-14.

In the second quarter, Crossett had an 85-yard touchdown run on third down and made the PAT to go ahead 21-14.  With one second left in the half, Yepes kicked a field goal for the Lumberjacks to cut the margin to 21-17.

In the third quarter after a great defensive stand by the Lumberjacks, Lassiter again ran in a TD from 15 yards, and Yepes was successful on the point after.  Warren took a 24-21 advantage. With 1:49 remaining in the quarter, Lassiter scored his third TD of the night from three yards out, and after a blocked extra point, Warren lead 30-21.

Cheerleaders are Real Leaders

The cheerleaders are leaders on the field and off the field.
Senior Kaylee Jo Mann greets a youngster at Eastside Friday morning.
Cheerleaders are looked up to by many youngsters.  At Warren High School, the Lumberjack cheerleaders recognize this and are working to help the Eastside New Vision and Brunson New Vision Charter School students feel more comfortable and special.  Each Friday morning, the squad

children at Eastside Friday morning.
divides up and greets the children as they arrive at their schools.  High fives and good mornings all around mixed with friendly smiles of the cheerleaders lifts the spirits and self-esteem of the children. Having someone you look up to take time out of their day to meet you at the schoolhouse door makes the children feel special.

The cheerleaders may begin their day greeting the younger children, but they are busy young ladies all week.  They practice often, paint bootprints, decorate ball player locker doors, make signs for spirit boosters, and plan and conduct pep assemblies for all home games.  They hand out snacks to the ball players on game days.
Krista Sparks raises the spirits higher with one of those amazing stunts.

When the lights come on at Jim Hurley, Jr. Stadium, the Lumberjack cheerleaders spring into action revving up the crowd of fans to "come to the spirit line."  They build pyramids and perform stunts that require great skill. They lead the fans in cheering on the team and perform routines at halftime.  When the game is done, the cheerleaders continue their role as ambassadors for the school as they, like the ball players, greet the opposing team on the field in good sportsmanship.

The squad is under the sponsorship of Joanna Young.
Everyone stands in amazement at the skill of this squad.

Alexis Dunaway really flips for her team!
