To all my Baton Rouge folk and all other SWAC folk, the Jackson State Tigers coming off a tough loss to Grambling 35-14 , invade Pine Bluff to take on the 1-0 Lions , coming off a huge road victory over Alcorn State. The Tigers offense is lead by former Southern University Co-OC and current Offensive Coordinator Chad Germany. Germany has brought youthfulness and excitement back to Jackson. Germany hit the recruiting trails hard as he reeled in nearly 30 recruits from Louisiana and Mississippi alone. He also marketed the JSU brand through various social media as well as through face to face interactions at JSU alumni gatherings. Chad know has the tough task of turning a once proud offensive team into a team looking point on the board.
Ted White comes to Pine Bluff with a long resume. White is the former QB at Howard that set many records in the MEAC as well as at Howard University. White was OC at Howard , QB coach at Southern before coming on as the replacement for Anthony Jones as OC of the Lions. Things started out slow but after scoring a huge over time win over Alcorn State 45-42 , White’s offense came to life. QB Brandon Duncan throw for 505 yards and 4 TD’s in the victory. White, like Germany has been hitting the recruiting hard in the areas of Houston and Louisiana also looking for talent to help his offensive philosophy. White knows that his offense is still a work in progress, however the time now is to win.
Who will win……Germany’s offense or White’s offense……stay tuned…..
