HS Football: Jangula assuming larger leadership role

National Sports

Senior defensive end Trajan Jangula has a specific goal in mind for his final season with the Demons.

“To lead by example this year, and hopefully get us back to the state title,” Jangula said.

That mentality is a new side of Jangula, a side that Coach Mark Gibson is happy to have.

“This summer and things he’s done and his attitude–it’s been a lot better than what it has been in the past,” Gibson said.

You can add a new and improved work ethic to that list of improvements, as well.

“I didn’t like to work,” Jangula explained. “I was always just wanting to go play, but I learned you’ve got to work your practice and bring it at practice. And if you don’t want to practice, then you don’t deserve to play.”

Gibson says Jangula’s new mindset will not only help himself as a player, but the whole team as well.

“You know, whatever he does–his work ethic, and things like that–there’s a lot of eyes on him,” Gibson said. “And those are things that we talked extensively about with him, and he’s accepted that challenge, and he’s done a pretty good job with it so far.”

Bismarck is on the road at Minot this Friday night.
