Athlete of the Week: Jared Cornelius - Novermber 27th

Posted: Updated:

It's hard not to notice the impact Jared Cornelius, a three-star receiver, has on the Evangel Eagles offense.

"He's the life of the team and the vocal leader," said Byron Dawson, Evangel head coach. "He gets the guys hyped at practice and gets them enthused at games. So each team needs that guy. Each coach needs that guy.

The Arkansas commit helped the Eagles earn a playoff win over St. Thomas More Friday by making some spectacular grabs including one that received more than 600 votes as our Top Play of the Week. Those kinds of catches have been ones Cornelius has made all year which have come at critical times for the Eagles as they get ready to play John Curtis in the next round of the playoffs.

Jared also has an impact in the classroom.

"He's always been a kid that's one of the top testers in our school. He's a kid that takes his classwork seriously. He loves music and the arts so he's a well rounded kid."
