In his final high school game, the MHSAA 6A State Championship, Jordan Patton watched as the ball floated over his shoulder and into his hands as he sprinted down the sideline and into the the South endzone of Davis-Wade Stadium.

That spectacular touchdown gave the Arrows a 28-14 lead heading into halftime of what would be the Arrows’ 49-35 win over the Pearl Pirates for Clinton’s first ever State Football Championship.

This fall, Patton will take that same speed and agility to Clarksdale, Miss. where he will play for Coach Steven Miller’s Tigers.

On National Signing Day, the 6-foot wide receiver signed a letter of intent to attend Coahoma Community College.

“I knew that Coahoma was truly the place for me,” Patton said. “I felt I could fit into Coach Steven Miller’s offensive scheme.”

Patton’s prowess on the gridiron led him to lead the team in total receiving yards with 499-yards as well as average yards per reception with 20-yards per reception.

Patton racked up 25 receptions his senior season and scored 8 touchdowns including his impressive catch in the 6A State Championship.

Patton will join fellow wide receiver Reginald Landing at Coahoma this fall.

Patton is the son of Bertha Cavett and Freddie Patton, Jr.
