           Jeff Kelly stepped down as the head coach at Jackson and was replaced by Danny Powell during the off season. Powell had been very successful at nearby Leroy so the expectations were high for the upcoming 2011 season.

           The offense returned key personnel at the skilled positions while the defense would be made up of younger players with less experience. Senior quarterback Dustyn Moseley would be counted on to lead the 2011 Aggies.

           The Aggies did returned veterans on both side of the football. They include; QB Dustyn Moseley, RB Ladarius Bowe, OL Kyle Andrews, WR Jaron Johnson, DB Elliot Pugh, DL Quincy Baldwin.

           After a trip to the Super Six in 2009, last year's squad finished with a 9-4 record.


  Jackson 21            41  
  Clarke County 0   0   0   6   6  

          Jackson opened the season with a 41-6 win over Clarke County behind the running of Ledarrius Bowe who finished with 82 yards on nine carries and scored three first quarter touchdowns. He did not play in the second half as the game was already in hand for the Aggies. The defense limited Clarke County to 104 yards of total offense and Gary Bryant scored on a 59-yard fumble return.


  Jackson 14   21   10   12   57  
  Saraland 0   0   0   7   7

  Jackson 7   9   3   7   26
