Jeremiah Jones is among the most versatile and skilled athletes in Kentucky’s graduating class of 2025. Who tells us this is so? Every major recruiting site in existence and the coaching staffs of the Power 5 Division I programs who have already offered him seem to believe it. That is good enough for us.

First of all, this guy projects as a safety in college and he has one Hell of a frame to play it. Jones is 6’6,” and weighs 205-pounds (according to He plays some QB, is among the club’s leading rushers, and is one of its more consistent targets in the downfield passing game.

On offense in ’23, Jones threw for 643-yards and six (6) TDs, ran for 204-yards and three (3) TDs, caught 22-passes for 326-yards and a pair of TDs receiving. Jones was 4th on the team in scoring.

Jones returned one interception for a TD as a sophomore and also rushed for a TD. Jones had seven tackles and one interception in two games as a freshman for the Tigers.

Murray High will really need Jones in ’24. The rising senior faces a roster which has lost its QB and second leading rusher (Colin Wilson), a near thousand yard rusher, the team’s second leading receiver, and leading scorer (Kainoa Olive), and the team’s leading down field target and second leading scorer (Zavion Carman).

The team does return Jones. The team does return a reliable PK in Hank Fronza, who converted 23 of 25 PATs in ’23. They have work to do, but they do have some fine workers.

Congratulations to Jeremiah Jones both for his Revolutionary Play in ’23 and that which is to come in ’24 and beyond, all of which has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, your friends at Independence Bank.
