’29 ATH has been ranked among Kentucky’s best

Jett Reynolds is a 5’8,” ATH who plays a ton of receiver and very well by all accounts. He has an ability to execute which is well beyond his rising 8th-grade status. He catches the ball, which is a real plus in a MS receiver. Reynolds also is a DB with excellent coverage skills and speed. Reynolds covers a ton of ground on defense and has easy separation speed to get open for passes when on offense. Where he ends up in high school depends on where his frame finishes. Until then, he will just have to enjoy being among the more dynamic, explosive, and skilled weapons at the KYMSFA level.

Reynolds’ Hudl Highlights

There are some famous Jets or Jetts in popular culture. There is the song by Sir Elton John entitled, “Bennie and the Jets.” The song was released in 1973 but didn’t chart until 1974 on the US Singles chart according to Wikipedia.

There is my favorite Jet from one of baseball’s finest movies, “The Sandlot,” circa 1993. Benjamin Franklin “Benny the Jet” Rodriguez was the oldest of the group in the movie as well as the best player. He was Scotty Smalls best friend and grew up to become a Los Angeles Dodger.

Then there is our Jett, Jett Reynolds. Reynolds is a star WR/DB on the Bowling Green Junior High School football team and also doubles as a baseball star (3B) to boot.

Reynolds is a 5’8,” superstar who has been ranked in Kentucky’s top 3-5 players depending on which ranking service has been consulted. I believe On3.com has him as the 5th best player in Kentucky’s ’29 class and Prep Redzone Next has him at number 3, but I could have that reversed. For our purposes, that is fairly meaningless.

Friday Night Fletch

Reynolds was invited to the Regional Exposure Camp’s All-American Showcase so that should solidify his place among the top Kentucky ’29s. Either way, this is a rising 8th-grader who appears braced to do great things in the KYMSFA this coming season.

As Sir Elton would put it…

Hey kids, shake it loose together

The spotlight's hittin' something

That's been known to change the weather

We'll kill the fatted calf tonight

So stick around
“Bennie and the Jets,” 1973.
