The team is one game above 500, with a 3-2 record. However, in just five games Jarvis has recorded 3 touch downs and 4 interceptions. And two of those interceptions were ran back for touchdowns.

“Our goal this year is to make it to the playoffs,” Jarvis said. “And for it to happen, we have to do it as a team and play unselfish. And we got to stay focus and do our job on the field.”

Jarvis feel confident, they will secure a playoff spot, if they win their final two games against Uprep and Monroe.

The young phenom doesn’t only display his focus and leadership abilities on the field, but also in the classroom.

Last year as a Sophomore, Jarvis joined other top students on the honor roll with a 3.4 average and continues to score A’s and B’s in the classroom as a junior.

“I know, if I stay focus, pay attention to my surroundings and eliminate distractions, I can have a bright future,” Jarvis said.
