We first told you about this young player when he was the Montgomery County Player of the Week back in February of this year. As we crest upon the breaking of the 2019 season, we find we are still excited about what we believe this young player brings to the table.
The junior year is when we really start seeing some maturation out of high school football players. Big-timers, like Jaquise Young, will sneak into the rotation during the sophomore season, but the real move into Friday-night stardom occurs over the course of the player’s junior year. That is why college recruiters will tell you “junior film” is so vital to their evaluation of a player.
Jacquise is a 5-11, 200-pound bruiser who reminds many of a former Wildcat great by the name of Brevon Johnson. The two of them share similar statures and build to go along with offensive and defensive alignments.
Young is a guy who stars on both sides of the ball at RB and MLB (like Johnson before him) and recruiters are unsure of where he projects on the college level. Truth is, what does it matter, as Young appears equally gifted at either assignment.
We believe this Class of 2021 prospect is poised to have a break out season. We ran into Coach Shelby this past summer in Paducah, Kentucky. He shared with us his belief his present OL is the best one he’s ever put on a football field.
Coach Shelby has guided some pretty dad-burn good football teams. His confidence in this edition of offensive trench-men certainly bodes well for any RB desiring to carry the football and gain considerable yardage. Look for Jaquise Young to go crazy in 2019.
Congratulations to Clarksville High School’s Jaquise Young, Class of 2021, for being chosen our Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Area Player of the Week! Join us next week as we award this to another worthy recipient.
This is Fletcher Long, reporting for KPGFootball, reminding you to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE!
