Jeannette had won their first three
games of the season by over a 40 point margin and beat Charleroi last weekend 36-7 in the WPIAL
Class AA Interstate Conference. Hall said after the game that it was a tough
game as others have been this season. “We played pretty good. Every team is
giving us their best shot because we are defending the title.” He said. “We
played McGuffey yesterday. They played us pretty tough, they were the best team
we faced so far.” he added.
With last year’s star of
Jeannette High playing quarterback for the Ohio State Buckeyes as a freshman,
Hall has visited Ohio Stadium to see Terrelle Pryor in action. “I’ve been up
for a game. I plan on coming to more.” He told us about his future plans.
One of the things that impresses Hall most about Ohio
Stadium is the atmosphere and the enthusiasm of Ohio State
fans for the games. “I think the atmosphere is great! All the people really
love and support the Buckeyes.” Those same fans are looking forward to seeing
the young Jayhawk play for the Buckeyes in 2009.
