The Donaldsonville Tigers wrapped up a three-way scrimmage this past Friday night with a solid showing against Scotlandville and Country Day.

The Tigers were led by senior quarterback Tyler Brown and senior wide receiver Stephen Sullivan. The duo connected for two long touchdown strikes. Defensively, the Tigers had some bright spots with several tackles behind the line of scrimmage.

The Tiger defense faced two high-powered offenses and surrendered a few big plays.

On offense, the Tigers have a huge offensive line, and they did a nice job protecting Brown.

Donaldsonville will continue to work on their running game to provide balance to an already strong aerial attack.

Jamboree action begins this Thursday night for Donaldsonville as they head to rival St. James for a 6 p.m start.

The Wildcats are coming off an impressive season that saw them finish 6-4 during the regular season and earn a No. 9 seeding in the 2A playoffs.

Once in the postseason, St. James made a run to the quarterfinals before losing, 28-14, to top-seeded Many.

St. James has moved up to Class 3A in 2015, but they will be without two of their best players to start the season.

Auburn commit Lowell Narcisse has been lost for the year after an ACL tear he sustained in the Wildcats' spring game.

Narcisse is one of the top quarterbacks in the state. Last year, he threw for more than 2,500 yards and ran for over 1,000.

St. James will also be without top receiver Dontaze Costly--who had more than 1,000 yards receiving in 2014. Costly broke his wrist back in June.

Donaldsonville will take this week to correct their mistakes from the scrimmage and prepare for the Wildcats.

The Tigers fell to St. James in last year's jamboree.
