    Reese Jesse is a bad, bad dude.

    IMHO, perhaps the most underrated prospect in KY for this season.

    Yep, he and Mercer were both on the AP All-State team last season. Jesse was 2nd team, and Mercer was 1st team - as a freshman.

    Reece Jesse is one of 9 starters the Tigers have back for 2020. That list includes basically their whole O-line.

    RB - Jayden Dillard 60" 200lbs Junior
    RB - Isaya Brooks 511" 180lbs Senior
    WR - Reece Jesse 63" 200lbs Senior
    WR - Ryan Myers 59" 155lbs Senior
    TE - Lane Rushing 61" 205lbs Senior
    OL - William ughes 60" 250lbs Junior
    OL - Zach Trice 60" 270lbs Senior
    OL - Justin Banks 60" 250lbs Senior
    OL - Brandon McCarley 511" 205lbs Senior

    So Hoptown was 8-4 last season, with two losses to Madisonville-North Hopkins. They return 16 of 22 starters. They need to replace a graduated QB and only have one starter returning from the linebacking corps.

    Checking the stats from 2019, the only other QB with varsity playing time was freshman Jacob Bealle. So are they looking at a sophomore starter?

    The scuttlebutt from this area is they had a 6’3 QB who went to middle school in Hopkinsville but moved to Florida the summer of his freshman year that moved back in December that they are awaiting eligibility on. Heard he was raw but had a cannon arm. Him plus the rising sophomore QB will battle it out for the starting job whenever things can start back is what I’ve heard. Who knows how accurate that is.

    Also heard some news about a potential QB relocating from the area to a 3A school in WKY... All rumors at this point.

    District 1 in class 4A is going to be a chore again for all teams it looks like. I also look for Christian County to be much improved this year with Trigg County taking a step back. I think Caldwell County will make a good run this year. They have their best incoming freshman class maybe ever from what people have says in Princeton.

    That’s a pretty tough schedule.
