“First and foremost,” Jarrell thanked, “My Lord Jesus Christ for giving me the talent and abilities to play the great game of football. I also thank my mom for getting me started in the game. She was at every game videotaping every down just so I could watch the film and better myself for it. I thank my Grandma for all the meals she cooked and the words of encouragement. I also thank ‘Big Daddy’ for the rides to and from practice and anywhere else I needed to be. I thank all the coaches who helped me develop. As for my teammates, ‘fellows thank you for four great years.”
