Hall Still Making His Case

Hall Still Making His Case

Jamal Hall packs a pretty good punch for a 5-7 running back. The Picayune standout is a name most followers of high school football in the state of Mississippi are familiar with. Jamal and his fellow Maroon Tiders are averaging a cool, crisp 47 points per game this season. While Hall gets the headlines, he is quick to share the credit with several of his teammates.

Jamal Hall profile

"The main thing is our offensive line is doing a great job," said Hall. "They are able to hold their blocks for a second or two and that lets me get through the hole.

"We have a lot of guys playing hard and some of our younger guys have really stepped up."

Picayune plays in one of the toughest regions in the entire state. Jamal believes the competition they see week in and week out helps make them a better team.

"Playing in our region is like the SEC," said Hall. "You can't overlook anybody because every week you're playing somebody who could beat you.

"I feel like if our offensive line does their job, we should be alright and come out with a win in our games.

"There is a lot of competition, but if we do what we are supposed to do we will be alright."

Jamal has been one of the top ground gainers in the state the past few years and this year is no exception.

With 1,418 yards and 15 touchdowns in just six games, Hall should get some consideration as an All-Stater.

In addition to a deep run in the state playoffs, Jamal is hoping that his outstanding season leads to some college scholarship offers.

"I am hearing from Ole Miss, Alabama, Arkansas State, UL-Lafayette and UL-Monroe," said Hall. "Alabama came to see me play last week and Arkansas State is talking about offering me."

When describing an ideal scenario for his college future, Jamal wants to be part of a well rounded program that will help him accomplish his athletic and academic goals.

"I want to go somewhere where I can help a team get better," said Hall. "I want to go somewhere I can play and fit in.

"I am thinking about majoring in sports medicine or something like that, maybe even nursing. I like helping people."
