Jeter Heading For Big Week

After a 44-0 win over Robert Morris' JV team on Monday, Milford head coach Bill Chaplick addressed his team and said this week's preparation for a game against Army—a game Milford came close to winning last year—is the game film a lot of schools want to see; specifically players looking for a Division I offer. Troy Jeter is one of those players who realizes the opportunity.

Troy Jeter is a 5-10, 170-pound defensive back from Aliquippa, now attending Milford Academy in hopes of latching on to a Division I offer. He doesn't have any yet, but in five games, Jeter has two interceptions and three pass breakups—all in helping the Falcons to a perfect 5-0 record.

"As of right now, I'm open to any options," Jeter said after a 44-0 win over Robert Morris' JV team. "I haven't heard from Pitt since (going to Milford), but I'm looking forward to hearing from them. I'm just trying to stay injury-free, go undefeated and stay humble."

After playing in his hometown on Monday, and in front of several family members, this week is the biggest week in terms of getting exposure. After the game, Milford head coach Bill Chaplick told his team that this Saturday's game against Army Prep is the one most intriguing to a lot of college scouts. For those that have an offer, this is a chance to get more. For those like Jeter—looking for that first one—this is the game film that needs to be the best.

Approaching this game, Jeter is just looking forward to getting the win.

"We're treating it, like this is a big comeback," Jeter said. "We lost to them last year. We have our revenge this year. They know this is the toughest game on the schedule, so beating them, it's revenge from last year, and it's a big win. I think it was one point, they won by, I guess.

"Every week, we come into the game mentally prepared. We don't look forward to one team more than the other. We prepare every week as a big game. We don't take anyone lightly."
