It's no coincidence that J.Z. George senior Jairvion Williams is this year's final installment of Eye on the Gridiron.

Williams, the defensive back and wide receiver for the Jaguars, had his best game of the season in the 2012 finale against Williams-Sullivan. Williams caught one pass for 50 yards, and intercepted three against the Yellowjackets for district win to close the season for the Jags.

Although his best game was the season finale, the 2012 season started with a Williams' kickoff return touchdown against Weir.

This year, Jaguars head coach Joey Tompkins will rely on Williams for experience in the offensive playbook and in the defensive secondary.

With a move to 3-2A, the Jaguars will look to improve from their 3-8 record of 2012. In the new district, the Jaguars will face teams in West Bolivar, South Delta, Hollandale Simmons, and Leland.

One week remaining

In one week the high school football season begins, and tomorrow teams will put their skills to the test in preseason scrimmages and jamborees.

Of next week's season debuts, one of the games that catches my attention is the J.Z. George/Winona Christian match up at Farris Jenkins Field in North Carrollton in a match up where the lone public school in Carroll County faces off with the only private school in neighboring Montgomery County that sends chills down my spine. Athletes from Winona, Vaiden, Kilmichael, Carrollton, Black Hawk, West, you name it. The players will be on the field, and the crowd will be in the stands for this one.

The Winona Tigers will host Kosciusko Friday night. Kosciusko is a different team representing 4A, but I'm anxious to see the Tiger offense under the new Marlo Hill era.

The Carroll Academy Rebels and new head coach Jimmy McGregor will open Aug. 23 against Bayou at Gordon Field in Carrollton. The Rebels will attempt to better their one win season in 2012 following a move to Class A ball.

The Montgomery County Hornets will host West Lowndes in the season debut and with new head coach Josh Glasner, the Hornets will try to better their one win campaign in 2012.
