Mirror, mirror on the wall. Who is the 2022 All-Big Bend Player of the Year?

Well, I can’t tell you that. However, I can give you a few other bold predictions I have for the upcoming football season. We are only halfway through the summer season so there is a ton and tons of football to be played, but these are some hypotheses I have so far. 

Get out the crystal ball and cue the wire lighting. Here are my five bold predictions for the Big Bend football season. 

No. 1: Jefferson Co. posts first winning record since 2018

Jefferson County quarterback Haven Francis looks to find an open receiver versus North Florida Christian in Monticello on Friday, Sept. 10, 2021.

It’s been a rough stretch since 2018 for the Tigers. Since 2018, after going 7-5 and making it to 1A Region 2 championship game, Jefferson County has gone 5-26, going 0-9 in 2020. However, there’s been a change in the tides in Monticello, which benefited the program early on.

The hiring of Lenorris Footman as the program’s next head football coach was the school district’s first official hire as an independent body. Footman was the quarterback when Jefferson County won the state title in 2011 and has rejuvenated the program from the coaching standpoint. There’s a new life and new hope in Jefferson County, and new confidence to win.
