JACKSONVILLE, TX (KLTV) - Despite making the playoffs last year for the first time since 2012, Jacksonville was picked to finish last in District 17-5A this season by Dave Campbell's Texas Football Magazine.
But the Indians proved they are no flash in the pan. Facing a must win situation against Nacogdoches last Friday, head coach Wayne Coleman and company took care of business and knocked off the Dragons 56 to 34. At 6 and 4 overall, Jacksonville is now playoff bound in
consecutive seasons for the first time since 2009 and 2010.
Jacksonville is practicing after Week 11 thanks in large part to quarterback Dontrail Session. The senior did something on Friday night that no signal caller in Indians history had ever done. And that's saying a lot considering Randy, Josh, Luke, and Carter McCown have come through this program.
Session threw seven touchdowns in the first half against Nacogdoches, which broke Luke's previous record of five TD's in a single half way back in 1999. While
Session will go down in the Jacksonville record books, the quarterback won't be getting out of responsibilities at home.
In addition, it is back to work preparing for 13th ranked College Station. Jacksonville has proved it can make the playoffs, but now the program
will look to earn its first postseason win since 2004.
