Jacob Wease (’23) surpassing every career QB’ing mark in Trigg County history!
Jacob Wease is in easy (or fairly easy) reach of several ‘all time’ area QB’ing standards. The 6’1,” 180-pounder, who is listed as a ‘Pro-style’ prospect at QB, also has a 3.4 GPA and a registered 20 on his ACT putting him firmly in the ‘qualified’ section of the NCAA’s clearinghouse. Enjoy following him the rest of the season. We know we sure will.Fletcher W. Long, KPGFootball Senior Scout
Trigg County is off to a fast, out of the gates, start. What else would you call 3-0 at this juncture with wins over Todd County (2A), Warren Central (4A), and one of the best 2A teams in Kentucky, known far and wide as the Murray High Tigers?
Wease entered the season fifth on the all-time passing yards list with 3,741-yards. Wease has already added 836-yards, 41-completions, and 9-TDs passing to his career totals in a seasonal performance, through the first three (3) games, we believe looks All-State selection worthy.
By our count, Wease now stands at 4,637-career passing yards. If our math is correct, Wease is the new career passing yards leader over Cam Jordan. Jordan passed for 4,400-yards over his illustrious career.
Friday night, in a seasonal reflection point kind of game against the one of the highest regarded teams in 2A, Wease completed 12 of 19-passing attempts, threw for 281-yards passing, and had a pair of TD tosses to favorite target Jhaden Vaughn (5-receptions, 196-yards receiving, 2-TDs). Wease to Vaughn has become a potent tandem in the down the field, vertical passing attack.
We would be remiss in not mentioning Olivia Noffsinger’s (’23) efforts for the team in the big win against Murray High. On a night where one-point would be the margin (35-34), every conceivable point mattered and was crucial. Noffsinger knocked down all five (5) PATs attempted on a night where just one miss would have been potentially outcome changing.
Well done, Noffsinger. Of course, she has scored over a 1,000 points in her basketball career for the Wildcats women’s varsity team so let’s not pretend she doesn’t know how to deal with pressure.
Vaughn (’24) was as equally splendid as his two teammates against the Tigers from Murray. Matter of fact, the junior who is getting a ton of recruiting attention around the commonwealth these days, is having quite the year himself.
On the year, through three-games, Vaughn has caught 13-passes for 382-yards and four (4)-TDs. Per game, the junior is averaging 127.3-yards receiving. He is also averaging 1.3-TDs per evening.
Do you know what kind of a season he will have were he to continue to perform at the present rate for the remainder of the season? An All-State, 1st-team type performance would be our guess (and our vote).
Watch these Wildcats going forward. When the AP weekly, top-ten poll comes out the 12th of September, look for them to garner some poll attention.
We know of one voter who is pretty darned impressed.
