HARDY’S PIC AXE ’EM SPLASH Willie Jefferson, a senior defensive end from Beaumont, takes part in a wet postgame celebration at Homer Bryce Stadium following the Lumberjacks’ 42-37 victory over Central Arkansas Sept. 29. The ’Jacks finished the season 5-6, including a win against Northwestern State the last game of the season to maintain possession of the Chief Caddo trophy.
“Covering the Lumberjack football games every fall is one of my favorite parts of the job. I have photographed the team in all kinds of weather, from blazing heat and humidity at home to single-digit wind chills in Montana to ferocious wind in Abilene. This season’s game against Central Arkansas will go down as one of the wettest in my 17 years at SFA.” – University Photographer Hardy Meredith
