Saginaw Valley State has enjoyed a steady supply of standout linbebackers from the Lake Michigan area. West Ottawa grad Grant Caserta just finished his Cardinals career as a four-year starter and Academic All-American. He was SVSU’s leading tackler in 2012, followed by another linebacker, junior Brian Johnson from Muskegon Catholic Central. Their success leaves expectations high for fresh Saginaw Valley commitment Jack Jennings, highly decorated out of Paw Paw and looking ready-made physically at 6-2, 222.
In his senior season, Jennings led Paw Paw to an undefeated regular season with 98 tackles including four sacks, while forcing four fumbles and making an interception. He also showed off his athleticism as a receiver, with 250 yards and two TDs.
