Edens was second on the team in scoring and registered points rushing (9-TDs), receiving (2-TDs), housing a punt, housing two (2) KOs, scoring five (5)-two pointers on special teams for 94-points in his 10-games of action.

It boggles the mind to think of all the ways Jackson Edens contributed to his team’s bottom line this past season. He was a three-phase contributor in every way that term has ever been used regarding a football star.

Edens was a thousand yard rusher. Edens scored nine-TDs rushing and two-TDs receiving. Edens housed a punt and two kicks.

Edens registered some tackles and an INT on defense. Edens put 94-points on the scoreboard to include five (5) two-pointers on special teams.

For its part, Webster County had a tremendous season in ’23. The Trojans made the KHSAA playoffs, and in a six team district that is no given.

Webster County also lit up the scoreboard in ’23. After losing its opener, Webster reeled off five straight wins, scored 64-points on Trigg County, and put up 73-points on the Ft. Campbell Falcons. The Falcons also made the playoffs this year in Class 2A and had a good season, the defensive debacle against Webster notwithstanding.

Putting athletes like Jackson Edens on the field is the reason Trojans appear to be catching fire heading into ’24. That’s our take anyway…
