Jeydon Cox leads Broncs football for post-season accolades

JACKSON, Wyo. – With the 2019 high school football season fading in the rear-view mirror, all that’s left are the accolades.

The Broncs were unable to secure a state title, bowing out in the semi-final round at the hands of Star Valley who went on to win the 3A championship. But individual honors were bestowed on several Jackson athletes.

Jackson running back Jeydon Cox again won Offensive Player of the Year—a feat he accomplished last year as well. Cox also made Casper Star Tribune’s Super 25 team. The fleet-footed senior finished with 2,038 yards for 2019—good enough for 5th on the all-time list of rushing yards in a season. He also holds down 3rd place on the list for his 2,257 yards in 2018.

The Wyoming Coaches Association recently released its All-State teams. Jackson seniors Kirby Castagno (LB, FB), Jeydon Cox (RB), Kevin Flores (DL), and Peter Goettler (WR/CB), along with sophomores Colter Dawson (LB), and Sadler Smith (QB) made the list.
