Hetrick, Jarreau in Army Bowl Saturday

All-Star Game to Start at 2:30 at Zachary Stadium

ZACHARY— Two of Central High School’s top athletes will be in the starting lineup for this Saturday’s U.S. Army Bowl at Zachary Bronco Stadium in Zachary.

The game begins at 2:30 p.m.

All-District Defensive MVP Zach Hetrick of Central will start at linebacker for the Rough Riders, while All-District Joey Jarreau will start at defensive end.

Central coach Frank Fresina will coach for the Rough Riders under head coach Neil Weiner of Zachary High.  Some of the area’s most outstanding All-State and All-District players will take part in the contest, including three star quarterbacks from Zachary, Scotlandville, and Denham Springs.

The game will be taped for later broadcast by Cox.

Central schools Athletic Director Sid Edwards urged Central fans to turn out en masse and sit together to support Hetrick, Jarreau, and Fresina.  In addition, the commanding general of the Army is supposed to attend, and everyone involved in the bowl is hoping for a good turnout for the general, who funds the annual event.  Attending the game is a way to say thank you to the U.S. Army.


Football Prospects. At least four Central High School seniors are being looked at by college football recruiters.  These are Zach Hetrick, Zack Evans, Joey Jarreau, and Logan Metcalf.  Hetrick looks like a sure bet, and the others have a decent shot.

Live Oak quarterback Cole Le-Blanc, a former Central player who transferred to Live Oak, is also a prospect.
