Former Sprayberry Yellow Jacket has his sights on the NFL!

Jerick McKinnon is dazzling the NFL Scouts in his combine performance.

Former Sprayberry Yellow Jacket and Georgia Southern quarterback/running back Jerick McKinnon had a jaw dropping performance in the NFL Combine, running an official 4.35 40-yard dash and putting up 225 pounds on the bench press 32 times.

When a player can do a little bit of everything, his draft stock is going to rise quickly.

The former Yellow Jacket Quarterback Jerick McKinnon did a great job of making a good impression at the NFL Scouting Combine. Jerick helped lead Sprayberry to a Region Championship and 3 trips to the Georgia State Play Offs during his time at Sprayberry.

At Georgia Southern he shattered school records as a running back and quarterback.  This season, he broke Florida Gators fans' hearts as McKinnon ran for 125 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' 24-20 upset victory over Florida.

His numbers at the NFL Combine were remarkable:

Event Stat Rank
Broad Jump 11'0" T-2nd
Vertical Jump 40'5"   3rd
Bench Press 32 reps T-8th
40-yard dash 4.41 sec   6th

McKinnon may have been tied for eighth in the bench press, but that doesn't do him any justice. Thirteen of the top 15 performers were offensive linemen, and the other player was a tight end. Not a bad job for a quarterback turned running back.

Check out the running back bench pressing:

 

*Note: Two of his reps did not count.

Here's a look at his second 40-yard dash attempt:

 

 

It's safe to say that McKinnon turned some heads in Indianapolis. We have known for years what a great person and player Jerick is, now its time to share him with the entire Nation.  Good luck Jerick you make us very proud!

Sprayberry Kicker Ranked #1 Nationally!

Selected All County, All State, and All-American!

Rodrigo’s 2013 season ended with a special honor when he was selected as the first-team kicker on Prokicker.com’s annual All-American team. The five-man first team included two other Georgia players plus one each from Tennessee and Florida.

Contributing to Rodrigo’s designation as the best kicker in the country was his sweep of the National Kicking Championships in Bradenton, Fla. last December as well as his first-team all-state selection as punter.

Rodrigo also was named honorable mention All-American for 2013 in two other categories, kickoff specialist and punter-kicker combo.

Rodrigo’s 2013 honors also include his selection on the Atlanta Journal Constitution/Georgia Sports Writers Association Class AAAAA all-state team as first team punter.

Earlier, Rodrigo had been named first team punter on the Marietta Daily Journal all-Cobb County team. He was also selected to the Region 7-AAAAA team, followed by his selection to the all-state team. Additionally, he was named first team punter on the AJC’s all-metro/Cobb team.

Colleges and Universities throughout the country are recruiting Rodrigo with hopes to be the one he signs with in 2015.  We are expecting a great year from Rodrigo and the entire Yellow Jacket Team!
