Bobcats receive mention in JCGridiron.com "Dirty Thirty" poll

Posted: Updated:

ELLISVILLE – The Jones County Junior College football team has received mention in a preseason poll.

Head coach Ray Perkins' Bobcats received votes in the "Others on the Bubble" portion of the JCGridiron.com "Dirty Thirty" poll, which was released during the week of July 4.

The Bobcats posted a 6-3 record in Perkins' first year as head coach in 2012. JCJC finished in a 3-way tie for the MACJC South Division title with a 5-1 record, but failed to make the playoffs because of the tiebreaker.

Mississippi Gulf Coast is the preseason No. 1 team in the poll, followed by Riverside Community College (Calif.) and Mount San Antonio Community College (Calif.). Iowa Western Community College – the defending NJCAA champion – is No. 4, followed by Snow College (Utah) at No. 5.

The JCGridiron.com "Dirty Thirty" poll includes teams from both the NJCAA and California junior college league.

Other MACJC teams receiving mention are East Mississippi at No. 6, Itawamba at No. 19, Northwest Mississippi at No. 21 and defending MACJC state champion Copiah-Lincoln in the "Others on the Bubble" category.

The Bobcats open the season at Holmes Community College at 7 p.m. on Aug. 29, followed by a road game at Northeast Mississippi at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 5.

JCJC's home opener will be at 7 p.m. on Sept. 14 vs. Pearl River in the annual "Hall of Fame" game.
