Seven Trinity football stars made their college plans official Wednesday afternoon. The group helped Trinity win two Class 6-A state titles.

Connor Foos (Eastern Kentucky University)

Foos was a standout three-year starter at defensive end for the Rocks. He will join teammate Damon Lowe at EKU and both players will have an opportunity to make an impact on first-year head coach Mark Elder’s squad. Foos recorded 22 tackles and nine tackles for losses.

The Colonels were 6-5 last year and extended Kentucky to overtime before falling 34-27. Another interesting aspect of EKU’s signing day includes St. X speedy linebacker Logan Butler joining his longtime rivals to solidify a defense that allowed 24.6 points per game and 335.5 yards per game.

Dalton Jones (Morehead State University)

Jones was a wide receiver threat on the outside and as a slot receiver for Trinity. The speedy split end caught 39 passes his senior year for 608 yards (15.6 yards per catch) and nine touchdowns.

Damon Lowe (Eastern Kentucky)

Lowe, like Foos, was a three-year starter at inside linebacker for the Shamrocks. He was an impact player and a force in the middle of Trinity’s defense. As a senior he led the Rocks with 51 solo tackles and a whopping 24.5 tackles for a loss. Lowe’s a run-plugging interior linebacker who showed up all over the field in Trinity’s 2014 championship season.

Rodjay Burns (Ohio State)

Burns is a legitimate 4-star player and will be a playmaker for Ohio State. Though he started on both sides of the ball for the Rocks, at wide receiver and at cornerback/safety, Burns will probably line up on the defensive side of the ball for the Buckeyes.

As a senior, Burns had 20 solo tackles, four interceptions and five pass break-ups. On offense, he keyed the passing game for the Rocks, catching 44 passes for 744 yards (16.9 yards per catch) and 14 touchdowns.

Max Martin (University of Louisville – walk on)

Martin was an offensive lineman for an offense that averaged 41.1 points and gained 337.7 yards of offense a game.

Will O’Rourke (Georgetown College)

O’Rourke was also an offensive lineman who helped pave the way for Jailen Reed and other running back as the Rocks averaged 145.1 yards on the ground a game.

Jailen Reed (Lindsey Wilson College)

Reed was a stud running back and rushed for 1,096 yards and 21 touchdowns as a seniors. He also caught 13 passes for 127 yards and a score.

Jake Woosley (Centre College)

Woosley was Trinity’s quarterback and completed 180 of 239 passes for 2,330 yards and28 touchdowns with four interceptions. He also rushed for 65 yards and three touchdowns.
