Jacob Craft has always believed working hard, despite the set backs, will pay off.
After an injury stalled his junior season, Craft was determined to make the most of his senior year, helping the Arrows get to the North State Championship.
On Wednesday, Feb. 22, senior defender Jacob Craft signed a letter of intent with East Central Community College to play soccer for the Warriors.
“I know East Central Soccer well because my brother went there,” Craft said, “and I really like Coach Thompson. It just seems like a good family and a good fit.”
Jacob’s presence was felt on the defensive side of the ball for the Arrows, being a key player on the Arrow back line.
Offensively, he was used to serve the ball in play during set pieces.
“Jake is a solid kid who knows his position,” Clinton Boys head coach Tyler Wade said.”He did a great job for us and he’ll do well at the next level.”
Craft served as Captain both his junior and senior years.
He was named as the Most Improved Player his sophomore year and the Most Christlike Player his senior year.
Craft is a member of the Mississippi Brilla Team and the son of Joey and Keli Craft.
