The Missouri Tigers football program has had a long history of landing talented football players from the state capitol of Jefferson City. They picked up a verbal commitment from Jays LB Joe Burkett 6'3" 210 4.6 forty earlier this year, and the athletic Burkett has been off to a great start in helping to his defense and team to a perfect 5-0 record halfway through the season.
The state track champion in the pole vault uses his speed and athleticism making plays sideline to sideline from his inside linebacker position. He sees plays unfold, runs through or sheds blockers, and makes plays. The big hitter is also very solid in his pass coverage and has accounted for over 50 tackles and 2 sacks early in the season.
