Logan County has had a plethora of outstanding young bigs align across its fronts both on defense and offense here of late. It is the reason the program is experiencing unprecedented prosperity. Jaxon Kenner is a fine example of this winning formula in practice and on full display.Fletcher W. Long, KPGFootball Senior Scout and Editorial Board Member
Jaxon Kenner is 6’1″ tall and weighs a solidly put together 270-pounds. He’s a ’23 prospect who bench presses 315-pounds and squats 485.
Maybe even more important statistically are his 4.27 GPA and registered 22 on the ACT. Kenner will breeze through the NCAA Clearinghouse.
College coaches love prospects they know going in will get through admissions. Prospects who schools struggle to get admitted are bad investments and a waste of resources.
Make no mistake, Kenner isn’t just a book worm. Kenner can play.
He has played quite a bit of offensive line while a Cougar and has dabbled on the defensive side intermittently. The Cougars are the class of the first-District’s 4A classification, or so it has seemed over the course of the last five or so years, so playing full on “iron man” football isn’t preferable on Coach Adler’s roster.
Two-way players aren’t the norm at that level of competition. If Kenner were playing smaller-school ball, he would get way more defensive action.
When on defense, Kenner has performed. In ’21, Kenner had 19-tackles, 2-TFLs, and .5-sacks in light duty.
Look for his defensive snaps to spiral upwardly in ’22. Expect the same from his defensive numbers.
Offensively, the team has performed well with him at OG. The team powered for over 3,000-yards rushing a year ago with Kenner helping to clear the way.
Running the football that effectively is the secret to success in Kentucky high school football. Truthfully, that isn’t too much of a secret.
As for Kenner’s college prospects, we see him playing along an interior offensive front. We would have no trouble seeing Kenner at either OC in college or at one of the OG posts for a school with elite programs be they academic or athletic.
Till then, Kenner will just have to keep knocking opponents blocks off around District-one. Logan County will be pleased with such an effort from its senior star player just now seemingly “coming into his own.”
