Making The Transition
The Bulldogs of Louisville Male High School had quite the 2014 season under head Coach Chris Wolfe. Male finished the regular season undefeated but lost in overtime 38-31 to Trinity in the 2nd round of the KHSAA Playoffs. Although most of the attention was focused on the high scoring Bulldogs offense, Male’s defense only allowed their opponents to score just 13 points per game last season. Over the summer Male also managed to win the National select Seven on Seven Football title, the first time a school from Kentucky has ever won it.
So what will be the keys to the Bulldogs success this season? Well it could start in the secondary at the Cornerback position with players like Demetrius Holt and James Todd returning for their senior seasons, Male will have two very talented Cornerbacks/Defensive Backs. There is also a newcomer on the varsity team as well in Klarans Jones, who’s looking to make his own impact on the team. The 6 foot 170 lb Cornerback spent his sophomore season playing on Male’s Junior Varsity squad, but as the tallest CB on the Bulldogs roster Jones will have his share of chances on the varsity club this season. Male’s Defensive Coordinator Ron Wakefield could use Jones in situations when there are bigger receivers on the field for the opposing offense. Analyzed Sports was able to talk with Klarans Jones about his transition from JV to Varsity and his goals with the team this season.
