Jenkins’ senior defensive end Jordan Domineck added to his impressive resume this past week by being named the Large School Defensive Player of the Year by The Ledger. Domineck, who is committed to South Florida, recorded 103 tackles – 51 solo – and sacked the quarterback 25 times this season. He was constantly in the back field and had 44 tackles for loss, four forced fumbles and deflected two passes. “He epitomizes the idea of the student-athlete,” coach Chris Canning said. “I just wish I could have coached him four years instead of two. He has been a pleasure to work with, and I am anxious to see him sign.”
Domineck was not the only football player honored. Senior wide receiver Jashawn Mitchell was named Second Team All-County offense, while senior linebacker Jayden Monroe was named Third Team All-County defense. Tavion Cox, Dezden Flowers, Zac Tallent, Tyler Sheffield and Jaden Wilson were all named Honorable Mention.
Congratulations to all of these athletes!
