Contest closing at 4 p.m. today

This week’s Webster Parish Journal Football contest will close a day early, due to a Thursday game between New Orleans Saints and Jacksonville Jags. You have until 4 p.m. today (Thursday) to submit your picks.

Each weekly winner over the life of the contest will be on the receiving end of $100 and have their photo taken at our title sponsor Under Dawgs Sports Grill, the gathering place featuring a home-field atmosphere. (Please see Saturday’s Webster Parish Journal for a photo of last week’s winner Marcus Harmon.)

Anyone 18 and older is eligible to participate. All it takes is an email address and a combination of skill and a little luck. Each week, area high school football games, college teams and pros will be posted on the Webster Parish Journal. And just like the Journal, there’s no cost to enter. 

Signing up for the contest only takes a couple of minutes. Log on to and follow the instructions.

But hurry if you plan to compete this week.

A special thank-you to all our football contest sponsors including Yocom Law Firm. Please take note of these businesses and be sure to patronize them.
