See also

Robin Jacobs has been coaching football and softball at Brighton since the school opened back in 1996.

Jacobs who serves as the head softball coach for the Cardinals will now add another head coaching job to his resume as he was named the new head football coach at Brighton.

He replaces Will Wolfe who recently resigned to take the head coaching job at Hernando (MS) high school.

Wolfe posted an impressive 62-26 record at Brighton in his eight years as head coach.

The Cardinals have made the Class 6A playoffs seven of the last eight years including seven straight.

They are coming off an 8-3 record in 2013.

"Coach Jacobs brings a great knowledge of football and the ability to motivate his athletes," Brighton Athletic Director Brian Crowson said.

"We are excited about this hire and look forward to continuing our football success at Brighton High School."

Currently there are open jobs at Cascade, Mt. Pleasant, Dresden, Mt. Juliet Christian and Fairley as schools currently looking for a head coach.

Mid State Defensive Backs Commit
Two of the best defensive backs in the state have been taken off the recruiting market.

Ensworth four star defensive back Donovan Sheffield (5-11,175) has recommitted to Vanderbilt and new coach Derek Mason.

Sheffield was a Vandy commit last year under former coach James Franklin but decided to open his recruitment after Franklin left Vanderbilt for Penn State.

Sheffield selected the Commodores over Stanford, Georgia Tech, Northwestern and Ole Miss.

Nashville Overton defensive back Ugo Amandi on the other hand has committed to Ole Miss.

"I have officially committed to the University of Ole Miss," Amandi posted on his Twitter account last week.

He chose the Rebels over Cincinnati, Duke, Indiana, Mississippi State, MTSU, Northwestern, Purdue, Syracuse and Tennessee.

Amandi (5-10, 180) is the fourth Class of 2015 commitment for the Rebels so far this year.

Ordway Gets More Offers
Also picking up offers this week is Giles County defensive back Cameron Ordway.

Ordway (6-1, 180) just picked up an offer from Urban Meyer and Ohio State on Monday after picking up offers from defending national champion Florida State and California on the same day last week.

Ordway is now up to 14 offers which also include Auburn, Alabama, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Penn State, Cincinnati, MTSU and Memphis.
