East Webster's Jack Wilson
Staff Writer

It was five months ago when East Webster quarterback Jack Wilson took the football field for his final high school football game in the Class 2A State championship at Ole Miss’ Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
That afternoon might have been the last time that he suited up in a Wolverine uniform, but he and some other area athletes got a chance to finish out their high school careers on a big stage this week.
Wilson and teammate Tyler Cosby as well as Choctaw County running back Danny Woodard and Eupora linebacker Victor Goldman and center Jackson Edwards represented the West squad in the 2016 Northeast Mississippi Football Coaches Association All-Star Game.
The game, which was played at Northeast Community College in Booneville, was put together with some of the top senior talents in the state and Wilson shown brightest offensively earning Offensive Most Valuable Player honors in the 31-0 rout over the East.  
“If I would have known that I would have gotten that award earlier, I wouldn’t have believed it,” Wilson said. “I was surrounded by extremely talented guys that are going to play somewhere on the next level. The coaches gave us great plays to have open runs and easy reads. Our o-line was phenomenal. It wasn’t too much I did.”
