Wolves add 26 on National Signing Day

The Copiah-Lincoln Community College football program added 26 players Wednesday when the 2019 signing period opened up. The players include two Brookhaven High graduates — defensive backs Axavian Jones and Jemaurian Jones, formerly with Southern Miss.

The new players look to continue Co-Lin’s success on the gridiron beginning in 2019. Last season the Wolves finished the year 6-4 overall and 5-1 in the MACJC South Division. The impressive play earned the Wolves a playoff berth for the first time in four years. Head coach Glenn Davis is pleased with the incoming class and has high hopes for the team.

New recruits include:

QB — Danny Clark, University of Kentucky

RB — Drexlan Allen, Hattiesburg; La-Kenith Thompson, Callaway; Dennis Andrews, Long Beach

WR — Erick Rogers, Shannon

TE — Atavius Jones, Starkville

DL — Verdell Clemons, Noxubee County; LaMarcus Faulkner, Oxford; Jacquess White, Tupelo

LB — Jarion Gardner, Rosa Fort (Tunica); Hayden Hill, Northwest Rankin; Chris Rias, JZ George

DB — Jemaurian Jones, Southern Miss/Brookhaven; Kerrick Jones, US Naval Academy; Lamar Gary, Warren Central; Daquarius Ruffin, Greenwood; Chardarius Moore, O’Bannon (Greenville); Axavian Jones, Brookhaven
