’25 RB takes home this award for the second time

The Edens kid had just came off a superlative freshman campaign when we awarded this to him the first time on March 25, 2022. We predicted, “Edens will be heavily counted on early and often over the course of his sophomore year.” Talk about nailing a prediction: Edens just keeps getting better and better and the same is true of Webster County’s varsity football team. If Edens continues on his present performance arc, we will be writing plenty more features on this young RB from here until NSD (National Signing Day).

Last season the on field success for Coach Zach Lagrange’s Webster County team was a little hidden but it was still “there” if you follow our drift. While the team went 4-7, and by recent standards that wasn’t a result at which to sneeze, the Trojans actually played much better than the record showed.

Webster dropped one score margins to Hopkins County Central (4A), Trigg County (3A), and Crittenden County (1A perennial western power). The boys from Dixon could have gone 7-4 just as quickly as they finished 4-7.

[Webster was] three scores, over the course of a season, from being 7-4 instead of 4-7

Jackson Edens had quite a season coming off a freshman year which would see him lead the ball club in many of the same categories. Edens gained 860-yards from scrimmage in only eight (8) games of action. He led the team in receptions, was the leading average scorer per games played, and was second on the team in overall points scored.

Edens played defense too. He was the ball clubs third leading tackler in spite of missing the two games. He was also the team’s leading solo tackler (meaning he didn’t need any assistance) with 23-stops.

That is a tremendous amount of time spent in the opponent’s backfield. That is a tremendous amount of playmaking from any MLB at any size for any team at any classification. 

Edens led the team in yards from scrimmage, carries, TD’s scored rushing, receptions, and average points scored per contest in only 8-games of action
