After a career at South Oldham that saw many program firsts, Jack Sherry will take his talents to Morehead State after signing with the Eagles Feb. 6.
Sherry said a number of factors weighed on his decision, including where the campus was located and the makeup of the coaching staff.
“They have a brand new, motivated coaching staff, a top 5 nationally ranked offense, and wide open QB situation,” he said. “I’ll have a chance to start as a freshman. What more can you ask for?”
Not long after weighing his offer, he posted his decision to play at Morehead online via Twitter in late January.
“I’ve been working non-stop getting myself out there since sophomore year,” Sherry said. “I’ve just had a lot of help and it’s great to finally get a chance that I feel I deserve. I wouldn’t be anywhere without all my coaches. My head coach, Jamie Reed, especially helped in my recruiting, and I wouldn’t have had a shot without my parents taking me on all the visits and to all the camps, combines and workouts. And, of course, what the good Lord has blessed me with.”
During his senior season, Sherry led the Dragons to an 8-4 record and plenty of other accomplishments, including the team’s first district championship, first home playoff game and first home playoff win.
The Dragons also swept county competition under Sherry’s leadership in 2012, claiming an overtime win over rival North Oldham.
Sherry connected on 113 of 207 passes for 2,165 yards and 24 TDs through the air, while adding 331 yards and 8 scores on the ground.
