Watertown High’s record setting quarterback Ty Jobe has narrowed his college options down to four in anticipation of making his decision known Wednesday, Feb. 5 on National Signing Day.
Jobe, a 6-3 quarterback, will choose among scholarship offers from Western Kentucky University, Tennessee Tech, UT-Martin and the US Naval Academy.
Jobe owns school career records for passing yards (5,266), touchdowns (71) and total offense (6,856), at Watertown High where he was a four-year starter for Coach Gavin Webster.
A three-time all-district / region selection in football, he also scored over 1,000 points in his high school basketball career, helping the Purple Tigers to the school's only appearance in the state tournament in 2013.
Two WCHS athletes commit
Two Wilson Central High football players have made their future college plans known to the public via Twitter.
Wildcat fullback Kaleb Butler (6-0, 215) has verbally committed to Lenoir-Rhyne College, an NCAA Division II institution in Hickory, NC.
Kyle Coombes, a bruising (6-0, 220) linebacker, has committed to Carson Newman College, an NCAA Division II program in Jefferson City.
Both will sign official Letters of Intent on National Signing Day, Wednesday, Feb. 5. The pair helped lead Coach Brad Dedman’s team to back-to-back playoff berths in 2012 and 2013.
