demonstrated leadership on and off the field. Black was named Team Captain before the season; in
addition, he was recently voted the team’s Most Valuable Player and is the 2019 Burlsworth recipient. He
can now add the 2019 Daily Commercial All-Area Football team selection to his postseason award
The senior offensive lineman earned a second-team selection on offense. Black was instrumental in
helping the Jackets rushing increase to 168 yards per game; as well as, 4.1 yards per carry vs. last year’s
97 yards per game and 3.5 yards per carry respectively. Third-year head coach Mark Oates expressed
