The three-year starter at quarterback captained Northview’s spread offense to near perfection in the fall, completing 196-of-320 passes for 2,312 yards and 14 touchdowns.
When not throwing the ball Jacks was running it, totaling a team leading 949 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns on the ground.
“He is the whole reason we went to a spread offense,” said Northview football coach Chad Davenport of his senior quarterback. “He has a very accurate arm, is dangerous with his feet and was everything for our team this season.”
At the conclusion of the football season Jacks was named 6AAAAA Player of the Year and was an Honorable Mention All-State selection by the Georgia Sportswriter’s Association.
As the football season ended, Evan made a seamless transition to the hard-court, leading the Titans to their first state playoff appearance in four years. Jacks averaged 19.1 points, 2.9 steals, and was selected First-team all 6AAAAA.
“Watching him play basketball you could really see up close what a competitor he was,” said Davenport.
“He brought that same mentality to the football field and is just one of those kids that you’re never going to replace.”
Jacks will give up the round-ball next season in favor of the pigskin, taking his shot at being a college quarterback at Wofford College.
