Brian Jenkins of Pearl River named Greater New Orleans Prep Player of the Week
Pearl River junior running back Brian Jenkins has been named as the R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl Prep Player of the Week in the Greater New Orleans area for week two by Crescent City Sports, Ken Trahan’s Original Prep Football Report on NASH ICON 106.1 FM, the Greater New Orleans Quarterback Club and WNOL/WGNO Friday Night Football.
Nicknamed “The Ghost,” Jenkins rushed 29 times for 306 yards and five touchdowns and had three catches for 24 yards as Pearl River downed Pope John Paul II 42-21. Jenkins is coached by Mike Labourdette.
“From a recruiting standpoint, this is a big year for Brian,” Pearl River coach Mike Labourdette said. “He is not really getting the attention he deserves yet. Pope John Paul II is much improved. He has a little monkey on his back that he can prove to people he can play. He’s soft spoken. He’s a really good player with a great attitude. He is big for us and deserving of this.”
Jenkins will be honored at the year-end meeting of the Greater New Orleans Quarterback Club on Dec. 14 at noon at Rock’n’Bowl.
