In 2022, Jung led Warren County with seven interceptions while also contributing 12 touchdowns on offense. One of his best performances was against Ben’s Ford where he had three touchdowns and two interceptions.

“I think I did pretty good and helped the team out because we pulled off some major wins and I’m ready to do more this year,” Jung added.

Massey:

Massey took the snaps at quarterback last year, helping the Eagles reach the second round of the playoffs for the first time in 14 years. He is confident that PCA will be stronger than ever come gamete time.

“We been working hard and we got enough speed to make a good run this year,” Massey said.

Massey threw for 1,262 yards and 12 touchdowns and rushed for 342 yards and seven touchdowns in 2022. He threw five touchdowns against Wilkinson County Christian which still stands as one of his top performances in high school.

“I’m not satisfied with last year but we did good and we’re just going to aim for a state championship this year,” Massey added.

PCA will begin their season on Friday when they travel to River Oaks under head coach Blake Purvis.
