Jake Thames Makes a Decision
It did not take too long for Jake to make up his mind after he got his written offer from Southern Miss. Just a few short weeks after the Golden Eagles made it official, Jake has elected to join them. "I committed to USM back on September 16th," said Jake. "I called and talked with Coach Rod and Coach Bower. They seemed pleased." Jake was also receiving interest from Auburn, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt. Southern Miss was the first to offer and that was good news for Jake. "It's kind of a relief now," explained Thames. "They had offered and I wanted to get it all behind me. It was close to home and that was important to me. They are recruiting me as an offensive lineman." Thames and his Lawrence County teammates are celebrating an upset win over previously unbeaten Terry High School. "That was a big win," said Jake. "We are 5 and 3 now and 3 and 1 in our district. If we win the next two games we would be district champs and host a playoff game. Our next two games are against Brookhaven and McComb."
