2013 ATH Jalen Reeves-Maybin
You can truly find D-1 talent in any corner of the country these days. But in Clarksville, TN there’s a special kid who can just about do anything. He threw for 1468 yards (15 TD’s), rushed for 1468 (31 TD’s), and tallied 103 tackles and 10 FF (forced fumbles) on defense. It should be no surprise that the kid’s name is synonymous with hard work and do it all ability. His last name is Maybin. Jalen Reeves-Maybin is in the class of 2013 and is the son of Louisville legend Marques Maybin. The Jack-of-all trades Reeves-Maybin gave CSZ an exclusive interview with CSZ’s own Jeremy Wahman.
