February 12—Vidalia High School standout golfer, Jackson Toole signed his letter of intent to play golf at Delta State University in Cleveland, MS.

Toole has accomplished quite a bit over the last several seasons as he has won AA Player of the Year the past two seasons and was runner up his freshman year. He has had an accomplished junior career competing in many tournaments and picking up several wins over the years.

VHS Coach Chad Barker said, “Jackson has played for me and Denis Watkins over the years and he has developed into a great golfer. I have known his family for a long time. They have done everything they could to help him along the way. He has played hard as a junior golfer and here at the high school. We are very proud of him and we know that he is going to be a great asset for Delta State and he deserves this scholarship.”

His father Jonathan added, “We are very proud of him. He has put a lot of time and effort in over the years, and we are happy it got him to this point. We really like Delta State after our visit there and it seemed like a great fit for him. They are a good school and have a good golf program and we are excited to see him be a part of it.”

Toole stated, “It is a great opportunity for me and I am happy with where I am going. I think it will allow me to mature as a golfer and continue to improve my game. The school felt like a home away from home and I think it is the right fit for me. I have to thank my family, friends, Coach Barker, Coach Watkins and everyone at the school who has helped out.”

Toole still has his senior year at VHS to go and said they have some unfinished business as they were in the lead last year in the State Tournament, but it was called due to weather giving them second place.
