Pusch Ridge’s Kannon Jewell commits to Randolph-Macon

Pusch Ridge strong safety/wide receiver Kannon Jewell committed on Sunday to Randolph-Macon College, an NCAA Division III program at Ashland, Va.

Jewell, 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds, said the decision was based partly on having family living on the East coast and being closer to them.

“Plus the majors and career opportunities I would get going there were exactly what I wanted,” said Jewell, who will major in civil engineering. “When I went on my visit there in January, the guys made me feel at home and they are people I’d enjoy playing the game with for the next four years.”

Jewell, who started his high school career at Ironwood Ridge, tallied 60 tackles, five for loss, for Pusch Ridge in the fall. He also had two sacks and two interceptions.

He had 11 receptions for 109 yards with one touchdown as a receiver.
