Jayven Jones to Lindsey Wilson; Jacob Mason to Campbellsville

Trigg County's Jayven Jones was set to play his college football at Kentucky Christian University.  KCU coaches and former Wildcat Andrew Stewart, now a starting linebacker at KCU, had heavily recruited Jones to the Grayson campus.

However, Lindsey Wilson made a late push and Thursday, landed the All-WKC running back.

In two seasons as a starter, Jones rushed for 2,470 yards and 27 touchdowns.  He also had 216 receiving yards and 604 kick return yards.

He was also the team's leading tackler the last two seasons at linebacker.

Jones was one of 42 signees for the Raiders, who were 8-3 last year and finished ranked 19th in the final NAIA Poll of the season.

Meanwhile, Jacob Mason signed to play his college football at Campbellsville University.

Mason was a starter at defensive end his junior season at Trigg County, but moved to nose tackle last year, often drawing double teams.

Mason said Campbellsville will likely play him at defensive end.

Campbellsville was 4-6 last year and is coached by former Paducah Tilghman coach Perry Thomas.  One of Mason's main recruiters was Ricky Gehres, a former standout at Hopkinsville.

Joining Mason at Campbellsville will be Hoptown linebacker Khalil Baker.

Ironically, the season opener pits Lindsey Wilson at Campbellsville on August 30.

Trigg County head coach Coby Lewis said both Jones and Mason have a chance to compete for playing time in college.
