Denham Springs seeks football information

Officials at Denham Springs High School are seeking information that can help them create a history of the Yellow Jacket football program. They plan to focus on the “foundation era,” from 1930 to 1975.

School officials need team rosters; team and individual photos; season records and scores; rushing, passing, receiving, and kicking statistics; old football programs; players who received post-season honors like all\-district, all-state, football scholarships, etc.

Copies of the memorabilia can be made so that the originals may be retained by the owner.

A new website,, will provide current and breaking news as well as a history of the football program.

“The time is running out to fill in the gaps from these early years of Yellow Jacket football,” said former DSHS student-athlete-coach-principal Butch Wax. “If the history of our school isn’t recorded soon, it will be lost forever.”
