Alief Taylor’s senior pro-style quarterback Chase Jenkins, a Rice University commit, is a 1st Team All-District selection transfer from (Bellaire) Episcopal that is ready for the challenging gauntlet of Class 6A Texas football.
The year has been pretty up and down early on in the season with an overall (1-2) record for the Lions taking losses to playoff contenders Klein Forest and Fort Bend Marshall; however, Jenkins shined and showed his true colors in a 54-0 win against (Houston) Westside. In the victory, Jenkins managed to score 6 (3 Passing, 3 Rushing) touchdowns in the game.
When Lions head coach Shawn Gray was asked what Jenkins has been able to add to the offense, Coach Gray stated.
“He is a culture guy and a great team leader.”
“All the kids look up to him and he leads by actions not by talk.” Coach Gray continued.
The Defender spoke with Jenkins after the Westside victory to discuss his style of play, the Rice commitment, and more.
