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."

IMG_2577 Joe Hall is a senior and entering into his second year on staff with the Crimson J. He enjoys playing sports and volunteering with his youth group at Lincoln Avenue Baptist Church. You will find him constantly checking his phone for up-to-the-minute ESPN updates about anything and everything in the wide world of sports. This fall he will once again attempt to build the perfect fantasy football franchise, Joe’s Schmoes, putting all that ESPN information to good use. Joe is an avid fan of the Chicago Cubs, Bears, Blackhawks, as well as the Minnesota Timberwolves. After high school, Joe hopes to attend Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, and major in Telecommunications with an emphasis in Digital Sports Production. After earning his degree, he hopes to gain employment at a major sports media outlet. Perhaps you will see him in your living delivering the latest sports news about your favorite teams. Joe sees himself living somewhere he can enjoy the warm weather and play/watch sports all year.
