Kicker Jacquemin sticks with Jackson State

MIAMI, Florida  -- Former Jackson State kicker Eric Perri sees glimpses of himself in Chris Jacquemin.

Perri — JSU’s all-time leader in made field goals (17) in a season and longest field goal made (50) — owns a kicking academy in Miami and trains Jacquemin. He’ll soon see one of his top students donning his alma mater’s uniform.

“I haven’t seen a kid with more accuracy and consistency coming out of high school, especially in Florida, than Chris,” Perri said. “He has a lot of power and is an all-around guy who can kick and punt.”

Jacquemin, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound left-footed kicker who made 8-of-8 field goals as a senior, committed to Jackson State previously. But he stumbled across a dilemma after learning that Rick Comegy was fired as head coach in December.
