Suggs releases 2019 Byrd football schedule
January 8, 2019, 4:08 pm

Byrd athletic director and head football coach Mike Suggs released the Yellow Jackets 2019 football schedule today. After enduring two years with only nine regular season games, the Yellow Jackets will have a full compliment of 10 games in 2019. 

The 2019 slate has Byrd playing three non-district games starting off with the Brother Martin Crusaders in the season opener. Brother Martin is a team that Byrd could face again later in the year in the LHSAA's Division I playoffs. The season opener against Brother Martin is scheduled for Sept. 6 in New Orleans, however, the site will be determined later in the spring. For the ninth straight year the Yellow Jackets will participate in the Landers Dodge Battle on the Border High School Football Showcase. The opponent is to be determined. In week three, Byrd plays host to the Calvary Baptist Cavaliers in what has become an annual affair.

After the three non-district games, the Jackets will play seven consecutive district games in the newly redesigned District 1-5A, which now includes the Benton Tigers and Natchitoches Central Chiefs. 

Byrd used to play its annual spring game with the Benton, but has never faced the Tigers in actual game. In 2019, the Jackets will host the Tigers for Homecoming. Natchitoches Central used to be a member of District 1-5A for many years, and the Chiefs and Jackets had numerous epic battles. The two schools last met in 2012 in the Class 5A playoffs in a game which the Jackets won 41-13.

The 2019 Byrd Yellow Jackets Football Schedule is as follows:
