West Jessamine’s Jacob Jones could follow in father’s footsteps

NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (BVM) — The 2022-23 season will be Jacob Jones’ last year at West Jessamine. And while playing there, he has become one of Kentucky’s top quarterbacks. And as one of the state’s top-rated football recruits, one can see how Jones could have his eyes set on playing at the next level. Especially in Lexington.

At 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, Jones has helped the Colts reach a 3-3 overall record in his final prep season. Six games into his junior year, the Colts also had an overall record of 3-3 but finished 5-6. Jones and his teammates will aim to change those results this year. And with Jones on the field, the squad can do just that.

With Jones on the field, the Colts’ offense has been can’t-miss. In six games, West Jessamine has averaged 41 points a game. And Jones is a big reason why. This past week (Sept. 23), Jones passed for 320 yards and five TDs. He also rushed for 210 yards and scored three times.

But perhaps his best performance of the 2022 season came against Ashland, where he racked up 639 total yards of offense and was responsible for eight TDs.

With Jones performing the way he is, it wouldn’t be hard for one to see why his opponents would gameplan all week to stop him. However, it’s not only his opponent’s attention he draws. He has drawn interest from DI schools too. Those schools include Eastern Kentucky University (EKU) and his father Pookie Jones’ alma mater, Kentucky.

“Growing up as a kid watching Kentucky Football made me fall in love with the game. So then to get an offer meant everything,” Jacob said in an interview with on3.com

To go along with his success on the gridiron, Jacob started to compete in track and field. This past spring, he ran the 100m dash for the first time, where he posted a time of 11.56. 

For Jacob, it’s an exciting time as he continues to show schools around the country that he’s an exceptional athlete. And looking at the numbers he’s put up, one could assume he’s just that. However, like any athlete, all Jacob needs is an opportunity to compete. And whether that’s in SEC, the Ohio Valley Conference (OVC), or wherever Jacob ends up, he’s sure to compete to his fullest and help his future team win games.
