Nathan Jew: Class of 2007

Jackson Academy (Jackson, MS) has a sophomore (class of 2007) running back/strong safety, Nathan Jew, who has a chance to be a good one. An honors student (3.5 GPA), Nation is a 5-foot-10, 175 pounder who is not only strong (275+ bench) but fast (4.6 forty).

As a 9th grader, Nathan Jew, voted MVP player on his junior varsity team, ran for over 1,000 yards while scoring 17 touchdowns in 8 games.

Also a member of the junior varsity basketball and track teams, Nathan had done well in both of those sports. In basketball, he was awarded the Best Hustler Award this past season. In track, he ran 11.3 seconds in the 100 meters, 23.5 in the 200 meters, long jumped 18' 3" and threw the discus 139'. He is also part of the 400m, 800m and 1600m relays.

Nathan has an older brother, Nicholas, who was also an excellent running back at JA the past few years. His style of running mimics his older brother's speed and ability to cut, but also includes a very solid and strong 175-pound frame.
