Athlete of the Week: Haynesville's JoJo Evans and his many talents

HAYNESVILLE, LA (KSLA) - Almost every young boy growing up in the northern Claiborne Parish town of Haynesville has dreams about playing for the Tors.

It was no different for senior lineman JoJo Evans.

Now he does a lot in and outside the trenches.

His size made him a prospect, but his work ethic has him shining in Haynesville.

And that drew the eyes of LSU Head Coach Ed O.

Haynesville senior lineman JoJo Evans is a man of many talents both in and outside the trenches. He says he does it for his Mom, who passed away giving life to him.

The Tors are undefeated going into the final game of the regular season.

And JoJo wants to do what he’s always dreamed of, go out on top with a state title.

But he doesn’t want to be confined to a position.

He’s a young man with many talents.

He’s in a music group at his church. Check him out on the guitar.

And he even went viral on YouTube for a prank video this summer.

His sense of humor and attitude toward life come from his mom.

You see, she passed away giving life to JoJo.

Now that’s who he does it for.

And he wants to make sure he represents her well.

I’m sure she would be smiling ear to ear.
