Travis Collier - 6-2, 195-pound, senior. 247 Sports Composite 3-star athlete. Starting WR/CB for the Tigers. Committed to Western Kentucky in June over seven other offers. 100 and 200-meters track champion. 11 catches for 145 yards and two TD receiving.
Jonathan Jefferson - 6-3, 260-pound, junior. 247 Sports Composite 4-star and No. 14 strongside defensive end in the national class of 2021. He will be the highest-rated prospect on the field tonight for either team. Fourteen offers including Georgia, Alabama and Wisconsin. Likely will grow into a player that plays interior defensive line at the next level. Leads the team with eight quarterback sacks. His dad Derrick “D-Train” Jefferson was a 6-foot-6 heavyweight boxer who was 28-4-1 in his career and fought Wladimir Klitschko for the world title belt in 2001.
Kani Walker - 6-3, 190-pound, junior. 247 Sports Composite 3-star cornerback. Ten offers including Georgia Tech, Georgia Southern, Louisville and Maryland. Eight of those ten offers came in June when he participated in the Champions Elite Mega Camp. He will also be active on the offensive side of the ball as well at wide receiver with 13 catches on the season.
Justin Franklin - 5-9, 155-pound, junior. 247 Sports Composite 3-star wide receiver. Starting QB/FS for the Tigers. Eight offers including Duke, Louisville and Boston College. Does everything for the Tigers and he’ll have to have a big game for Douglas County to win. White calls him “Eric Berry-like.” He should know, he was Creekside’s defensive coordinator back when Berry played for the Seminoles White says Franklin knows every check on offense and makes all the calls on defense. Adds that he isn’t as big or fast as Berry, but just as quick. He can dominate both sides of the ball. Franklin averages 166 yards of total offense per game and has accounted for nine TDs.
Joshua Robinson - 6-4, 235-pound, junior defensive end. Eight offers including Florida, Florida State and Louisville. Every one of his offers have come in person after a coach has come by Tigers’ practice, seen him and offered him on the spot. Came to Douglas County as part of the Inter Baccalaureate program and was going to play basketball. Football has been a good choice for him. He has five sacks and five TFL.
Jaylan Harris - 5-10, 170-pound, junior. 247 Sports Composite 3-star cornerback. Starting strong safety for the Tigers. Eight offers including Michigan, Vanderbilt and Pittsburgh. Unfortunately, will not be with the team tonight. Left for Mississippi this week after the passing of his grandfather. Jefferson will be wearing Harris’ number five tonight in his honor.
