TROY — Jerrel Jernigan
is on pace to break several Troy school and Sun Belt records this year. He got things started early this season, setting the career record for all-purpose yards in Troy’s 30-27 win over Bowling Green Saturday.
Jernigan has 4,085 yards, six more than Perry Griggs
, who played for the Trojans from 1973-76. The Eufaula native, who makes his mark as a receiver, runner, kick returner and sometimes as a passer, is 1,146 yards behind former UL-Lafayette standout Tyrell Fenroy
for the Sun Belt mark.
Jernigan is 31 receptions behind Danny Grant
(1966-69) for the school record and 45 behind Casey Fitzgerald
of North Texas for the Sun Belt record. He is 372 yards behind Johnny Quinn
of North Texas for the Sun Belt career record there and 561 yards behind Grant for the school record
