Guess

North Jackson head football coach Joe Hollis, Jr. says Macklin Guess had a motor that runs wide open throughout games.

The senior revved that motor several times to help the Chiefs post a critical Class 4A Region 7 win at Madison County last Friday night.

Guess recorded 17 tackles, 13 of which were solo, and recovered a fumble on defense while scoring a 5-yard touchdown run and a two-point conversion in North Jackson’s short-yardage Wildcat package as the Chiefs posted a 20-15 win. 

For his efforts, Guess has been named the Jackson County Sentinel Prep Football Honor Roll Player of the Week.
