DE LEON — Third-year De Leon coach Jacob Marwitz has spent much of his tenure trying to mold his team into a cohesive unit. Everybody on the same page. Everybody has the same goals. Nobody is more important than anyone else.
So it may have been a stroke of luck when the unassuming Heston Jobe emerged as a freshman last year to operate the De Leon offense behind center.
Jobe was too young to feel entitled, too inexperienced to be pretentious and too quiet to hog all of the attention. And best of all, he was productive, rushing for 1,200 yards and 15 scores and passing for 1,100 yards and eight more TDs as a ninth grader.
