Johnny Elmore & Woody Wilson

"The Voices of Jasper Viking Football"​

There are several iconic traditions associated with the Jasper Viking Football program that have been established throughout the years.

From Friday nights under the lights at Ki-Ro Gambrell Field, to seniors leading the team onto the field and pivotal victories over rivals after four quarters of grueling action.

The broadcasting duo of WJLX 101.5's Johnny Elmore and Woody Wilson have been part of the Viking tradition, calling memorable moments and bringing the action to fans on the radio for 41 seasons.

Johnny and Woody are graduates of Walker High School and have been life-long friends since growing up together in West Jasper.
