Brentwood High School has an exciting week ahead as they take on the Blackman Blaze at home this Thursday at 7:30p. The Bruins will kick off their first home game of the season on a brand new turf field and be featured on the MyTV 30 Thursday Night Lights program.
In its season opener, Brentwood fell short to CPA last week as JR Osborn had a 36-yard field goal with 1:16 left in the fourth to win the game for the Lions.
District seven’s Blackman started off the season with a win against Siegel High School 42-21. Blackman lost to Siegel in the Class 6A Playoffs at the end of the season last year. A key player to their success who has been on everyone’s mind is Jauan Jennings.
Jennings has already had several offers from colleges like Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and MTSU. This six-foot-four junior is an essential player for the Blaze. Against Siegel, Jennings had a total of 259 yards.
Brentwood was just shy of a point falling to Blackman in the middle of the season last year (21-22). Finishing off the season 11-2 last year, Blackman was one of the only loses for the Bruins. However, the Blaze ended their season with an 8-4 record. With new head coach Mike Woodward, a brand new season and success is ahead for the Bruins.
The Thursday Night Lights Game will be aired on MyTV 30 and kick off will be at 7:30.
