Since the 2010 signing class the Jaguars have had 42 DI or IAA prospects sign scholarship paperwork. Of those 42 players 22 are NUC alumnus.
Coach Ron Gartrell has been at the helm since the school started playing football in 1996 with an overall record of (144-53). This includes seven conference titles. During the 2012 NFL season the Jaguars had five players on active rosters. They include Jermaine Cunningham, DE (Patriots); Bruce Irvin, DE (Seahawks); Kregg Lumpkin, RB (Giants); Perry Riley, LB (Redskins) and Kelvin Sheppard, LB (Bills).
What better way to celebrate this collaboration than by having every FBS or FCS prospect currently on the Stephenson High School football roster come to the 2013 NUC South Five-Star Showcase. Yes!
