2003 Sooner Classic Championship
Jenks Maroon 2003 Sooner Classic Champions
Jenks Maroon 18 - Wichita Cowboys 14 - Championship Finals

image_name2
For the second straight year Jenks Maroon won the Union Sooner Classic Championship by defeating the Wichita Cowboys. The Cowboys had only lost two games in four years, those being two being at the hands of Jenks Maroon, both in the finals of the Union Sooner Classic. In this year’s battle, the Cowboys lead the game until thirty-four seconds left in the game when the Maroon line busted a hole for Grant Goodwin to power his way into the end zone for a 12-8 lead. The Cowboys then came back with three powerful runs to score with nine seconds left in the game and the potential 14-12 victory. However, the Maroon Trojans would not be denied and with nine seconds remaining in the game Justin Anderson threw the "Quick Score Special" to Jason Turner and he ran into the end zone as the final seconds clicked off the clock to win the game 18-14. The Maroon Trojans all played a great game and Justin Anderson was named as the Sooner Classic “Most Valuable Player” for the Maroon team. There is no doubt that the Maroon Trojans played one of the most exciting football games in the history of the Sooner Classic and the game will be talked about for years to come. Congratulations to the Maroon Trojan Team for such an outstanding accomplishment.

Jenks Maroon 50 - Owasso White 14 - Semi Finals

image_name2
Starting at 10:45 Saturday night and ending in the fog at 12:30 Sunday morning, the Maroon Trojans played long time foe, the Owasso White Rams. Coming off an over powering win against the Wagoner Sooners, the Maroon Trojans were slow to begin and allowed the Rams to take a 14-0 first quarter lead. The Maroon Trojans responded to the Owasso challenge by taking a 16-14 lead into halftime. As the fog rolled into Union Tuttle Stadium, the Trojans came out of their own fog to score 34 second half points to leave no doubt as to was in control of the game and gain their third appearance in the finals of the Sooner Classic. While the Jenks Maroon and Jenks White Trojans had defeated the Rams earlier in the year, the Rams were the only opponent to defeat the Jenks Black Trojans in the regular season. With the opportunity to avenge the Owasso loss and seriously address the post game email smack given to the Jenks Black team by the Rams. The Jenks Black players, along with their fellow Trojans, were more than eager to send a statement to the Rams by ending the game with a couple of exclamation points, thus leaving the Rams literally in the fog.   

Jenks Maroon 48 - Wagoner Sooners 0 - Quarter Finals

image_name2
The Jenks Maroon Trojans opened the first round quarter finals of the 2003 Sooner Classic facing two past Jenks foes in Coweta and Wagoner. While the Sooners looked classic and were big, the Maroon Trojans took command of the game in the first quarter and never looked back enroute to a 44-0 victory. Supported by excellent defense, the Trojans scored on the ground, through the air and off Sooner turnovers in a total team victory. The Trojans advanced to the semi finals to face another long time foe in Owasso White in the final game of the evening.

Mighty Maroon 12 - Jenks White LLOD 6 - INFC Finals

image_name2
It does not get much better than this... Two well deserving, mutually respected JTA 7th grade teams competing for the 7th grade INFC Championship, live Cox television, being broadcast in the Tulsa and Oklahoma City markets. Those watching from Union, Broken Arrow, Owasso, Lawton, Midwest City, Moore, Norman and other organizations can only wish they had such a show of their 7th grade football talent. The meeting of the 2003 Jenks LLOD and the 2003 Jenks Mighty Maroon was nothing new as both teams have developed a healthy and competitive rivalry since the teams originally formed in the 3rd grade. Coaches, players and parents have commented for years how great the boys would be together, once they reached the 8th grade, and Saturday nights INFC Final was a preview of the future. Ultimately at the end of the game, the Mighty Maroon lead the LLOD, 12-6 and gained the 2003 INFC 7th grade title. While the Mighty Maroon had the greater score, there were no losers Saturday night, just a great group of 7th grade Jenks Trojans who are all Jenks champions. Saturday night showed that JTA Football is "Where the legends begin." Congratulations to both the Mighty Maroon and LLOD players, coaching staff and parents for five great years of our own version of King of the Mountain.   

Once Gold - Now Totally Maroon

With the collasp of the 6th Grade Gold team coming into the 2003 season, the Mighty Maroon picked up several previous players from that team. Through the draft, Patrick Benson, Burns Getchell and Gannon Brooks were selected to become part of the Mighty Maroon. The heart and dedication of those three players did not go un-noticed throughout the year as each one earned their maroon helmet in becoming a member of the 2003 Mighty Maroon Champion family. There is no doubt that teams that could have selected these three great players, definitely missed their chance. Welcome to the family.

Mighty Maroon 24 - Stillwater 0 - INFC Quarter Finals

Suffering from a Halloween hangover, the Mighty Maroon overcame a horrific 0-0 first half to break away in the second half to defeat a big and tough Stillwater team 24-0 in the first round of the INFC Playoffs. The Mighty Maroon advance to the next round of the INFC Playoffs and will play Jenks Black Tuesday, November 4, 2004, 6:30, Jenks High School.

Mighty Maroon 28 - Jenks Black 8 - INFC Semi-Finals

In a highly anticipated game of two rival Jenks 7th grade teams, the Mighty Maroon defeated Jenks Black 28-8 in the semi-finals of the INFC Playoffs to advance to the INFC Playoff Finals, Saturday night against Jenks White, 8:00, Broken Arrow High School, live on COX Communications Channel 3. The Mighty Maroon scored on it's first possession and held Black to 4 plays and out while gaining a 14-0 halftime lead. Jenks Black scored on a great run by Jordan Towers early in the second half, however his efforts alone could not match the Mighty Maroon's total offensive and defensive team effort. Behind the Mighty Maroon's line, Grant Goodwin scored another two touchdowns to earn a convincing 28-8 victory. While the Maroon vs Black battle was the subject of much talk by some parents throughout the year, the Mighty Maroon left no doubt as to who was the better team of the two. After a 2-8 2002 season, Coach Jones, Coach Lynn, Coach Basden and the rest of the Jenks Black staff are to be commended on leading their team to a much improved 9-2 record for the 2003 season.

Homecoming - Thank You - Lori Morris

From: Mighty Maroon Team Mom, Lee Ray
To: All Members of the MM Seventh Grade(UNDEFEATED)Team

Who could not have noticed the beautiful long stem red roses with greenery and red star ribbon wrapped and secured with a handpainted and individually personalized maroon ornament for each of those pretty Maroon cheerleaders? Thanks go to Lori Morris, mother of Ian, for all her creative and wonderful work!

Also, the roses were from Southern Hills Florist and the lady got them for us at 95 cents a piece. No one was able to beat her price.
She asked me to pass on to everyone at Jenks that I know, that her price on corsages for Homecoming for the older kids is 10 percent off her regular price. Thanks!


Mighty Maroon 40 - Owasso Black 0

The end of 2003 Mighty Maroon's regular season was eventful to say the least. Touchdowns by McCombie, Benson, Hawkins, Ray along with halftime homecoming activities highlighted a wild night of unlimited substitutions resulting in a 40-0 Mighty Maroon victory over the Owasso Black Rams. Undefeated in the preseason, non-division and division games, the Mighty Maroon take their number one seed into the post season tournament. The Mighty Maroon will play a yet to be determined opponent Saturday, Novemeber 1st hopefully at Jenks High School Stadium.

Mighty Maroon 50 - Union Crimson 12

Barry Switzer would have been proud as the Mighty Maroon "Hung Half-a-Hundred" on Union Crimson in route to a Division I, 1st place finish. The Mighty Maroon rolled to a team high 50 points for a final score of 50-12. Through the air and on the ground, the Mighty Maroon left no doubt as to outcome of the game. The Mighty Maroon will face the Owasso Black Rams during the Mighty Maroon's Homecoming next Saturday in their regular season finale 5:00, at the Jenks High School Stadium.

The parade is Friday, October 31, and we are doing a combined float with the Maroon Cheerleaders on a trailer over 40 feet long. We will have a chance to paint some posters, etc., for the float at the cookout next Sunday.
      
One way that everyone is able to help is to bring tropical themed items or decoratons from home to football practice. Lynne Smith will collect them and take them to the cheer moms. The actual float will be assembled closer to the day of the parade.

Mighty Maroon 30 - Broken Arrow Silver 6

To quote a line from the movie Remember the Titans, "Leave no doubt", the Mighty Maroon's performance Saturday night against the Broken Arrow Silver Tigers was so complete the Trojans left no doubt about who was at the top of their game. The Mighty Maroon's 30-6 victory avenged a tough 7-6 overtime loss to the Tigers in last years INFC playoffs. Following a great game plan by the coaches and an excellent week of preparation by the Mighty Maroon as a team, the tone for the game was set at the opening kickoff. Behind the effective blocking of the Mighty Maroon line and backfield along with excellent execution in the running and passing game, the Mighty Maroon opened up a 22-0 halftime lead that could not be overcame by the Tigers. The Mighty Maroon defense also played exceptional and consistently held the well-coached Tiger offense to, four plays and out, allowing the Mighty Maroon offense to continue their run to a 30-6 final score. In the end, the game could have been the last in a respectful Maroon and Silver rivalry that began in the 3rd grade. However, don't count out those Silver Tigers as they Mighty Maroon may well meet them again in the INFC playoffs. The Mighty Maroon returns to play next Saturday again the Owasso Red Rams at 6:00, at the JTA Field.

Mighty Maroon Helmets - 2003

Similar to the star on the Dallas Cowboys helmets, you don't really become a Mighty Maroon Trojan until you get the maroon helmet. The helmets for the new additions to the Mighty Maroon and a few new helmets will be painted this weekend by Nathan Mangrum's Dad, Kenneth. As a professional automotive painter, Kenneth volunteered his services and is much appreciated. The helmets were stripped and prepped Frinday night and are ready for being transformed into Mighty Maroon helmets. In case you were wondering, the total wholesale cost of the custom mixed Mighty Maroon metallic pearl paint is in excess of $175 per gallon. Thanks Kenneth!

view full size
A line of severe thunderstorms shortened the first week of 2003 Mighty Maroon practices. However, after only five hours of practice, the Mighty Maroon lined up for their first scrimmage with their fellow Silver Trojans Thursday evening. With both teams playing a mixture of old and new players it was clear the Trojans were ready to hit someone other than their fellow team players. Returning players remembered their roles well, while the new players learned they still have alot to learn about the Mighty Maroon program. The Silver Trojans, lead by Coach Wilkins, look to be a much improved team from last year with the addition of some great talent and will be another great 7th grade Jenks team. The first week of practice will conclude Friday evening with only four more practices until the INFC preseason scrimmages next weekend. Thanks to Lisa Smith, Gannon Brooks'mother for the great Mighty Maroon pictures.

With 7 Mighty Maroon Coaches on the field, it is important that your remember the team rule "Parents remain on the sidelines at all times." If there is something you need your son for, please contact a coach. If there is something you need to discuss with a coach, please do so on the sidelines or after or before practice, not on the field.

It is going to be hot. We will water the boys frequently. This means we will go through water like crazy. Parents please help monitor the level of water in the coolers and bottles. If needed fill them up. If we are running out of ice water, go get some.
See you Monday evening!

Many of the Mighty Maroon completed their summer Speed and Condition Camp, Strength Camp, Pad Camp, Big Man Line Camp and overall conditioning. The Coaches have attended the Jenks High School Coaches Clinics and are once again obtaining their Coaches Certification. The practice field has been striped, aeriated, fertilized, watered and mowed and is one of the finest the Mighty Maroon have ever practiced on. Coach Anderson has begun preparing his strategy and the assistants are anxious to obtain his direction. While there are many unknowns going into the season with new player and new coaches, it is the belief the Mighty Maroon will once again field a very competitive team. Stay tuned to the Mighty Maroon website for upcoming activities.
