The Spain Park High School Jaguars are busy gearing up for the 2014 season. They hope to build upon the success they had last season when they went 9-3 regular season, only losing one game in their region. A lot of their success will hinge upon their new starting quarterback Mason Duke.
Duke is better known around campus as the star of the baseball team. His pitching prowess is known across the state as he won Hoover Area Baseball player of the year. In the playoffs, he went 3-1 with a 0.84 ERA, with four complete games, during the Jaguars run to the state championship.
Duke will look to carry over his success on the mound to the gridiron this fall. He has been busy with baseball activities this summer but he will be joining the team next week as they play a 7-on-7 tournament at Samford University.
