RRHS Scrimmage against Bossier High

By Christy Suggs

From the stands Red River was looking good. We saw much improvement from the spring scrimmage. They held their own and finished well against Bossier. It was a good cool night for football.

Coach Harper had these thoughts to share on the game:

“We finished Fall camp with a scrimmage at Bossier last Friday evening. We started on offense in the scripted portion and did some good things. Our 3 TD’s were scored by Jamarion Davis, Elijah Harper, & Collin Stafford. The defense had multiple sacks, interceptions & fumble recoveries.

“Senior DB Jamarion Demery, FS Key’marion Newton, and LB Jyrel Jones all had interceptions. Sophomores LB Montrell Brown and Eric Smith had forced fumbles. Linebackers Zylon Newman, Peyton Miller, Car’davious Demery, and Defensive End Reginald Prealow had sacks. Cameron Jones & Isaiah Miller both had fumble recoveries.

“The defense was fast, physical, and flew to the ball. They looked good for most of the night but still have technique and assignment issues that come with learning a new scheme which is to be expected.

“The offense is coming together behind a new offensive line led by 5 seniors David James, Zar’Wayne Tilmon, Andre Cole, Desmon Mitchell, and Jeremiah Jones. QB’s Tyler Hughes & Malique Smith both played well, making big throws for their first live action.”

Coach Harper said, “This Saturday morning at 11:00 we will be playing in the Bayou Jamb versus Lincoln Prep at Louisiana Tech. Come out and support the Dawgs as we kickoff the 2022 season.”
