2021 36 Blitz: Somerset Briar Jumpers

The Briar Jumpers must replace one of their most impactful class of seniors


SOMERSET, Ky (WTVQ) – Two seasons ago, the Somerset Briar Jumpers took home the school’s first ever state title. Last season, the Briar Jumper went toe to toe with LCA in the district title game. The Eagles would end up beating Somerset ending their season. This would also end the run of one of the school’s most impactful senior classes.
This season, the Briar Jumpers must replace those guys and they are primed for it.
ABC 36’s Austin Miller and the 36 Blitz takes a trip to Somerset to check out the Briar Jumpers.
