Jenks football switches back to old helmet decal for 2020 season
If you have been an avid Jenks football follower for the past 20 years, you might have noticed a change on the side of the helmets at the beginning of the 2017 season.
The Trojans transitioned from the traditional “Jenks” decal on the sides of their helmets to the new “JT” decal.
Jenks football has been wearing the “JT” decal since the beginning of the 2017 season, but in the 6A state championship game last year, the senior class wanted to honor legendary Jenks football coach Allan Trimble by wearing the old “Jenks” decals on the sides of their helmets.
Trimble had recently passed away following a three-year battle with ALS disease.
This year’s football leadership council has decided they want to keep the old “Jenks” decal for the 2020 season.
“Our leadership council asked if we could stay with those decals after we went with them in the championship game last year,” Jenks football coach Keith Riggs said. “They kind of liked them, so yes we are going to stick with those this season.”
The Trojans host the annual Trojan Preview this Friday at Allan Trimble Stadium and then host Springdale Har-Ber at 7:05 p.m. Aug. 28 at Allan Trimble Stadium in the regular season-opener.
