Crimson J

  • "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today." --Malcolm X

  • Congratulations, Mrs. Stock! YOU make a difference at JHS!

  • "If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be."

joeyfootball9 Number 9 on the field and number one in your hearts.  You can find senior staff writer Joe Brannan in one of two places: under the Friday night lights or writing sports articles for the Crimson J.  Joe has big dreams of winning a state championship this season in football with his best friends.  Eventually, Joe wants to play college football.  While in college, he wants to major in journalism, so this class means a lot to him.  If he isn’t on the field or writing articles, Joe can be found on the basketball court or working at his job at the local baseball fields.  Joe is a huge fan of the St. Louis Rams and the St. Louis Cardinals and watches every college football game that appears on television.  Away from sports, Joe likes being with his friends and spending time with his cat, Kitty.
