Giles To Play College Football In Home Town

Josh Anderson, Dakota State University football head coach, is proud to announce the signing of Madison High School standout Jacob Giles to join the Trojan Football program this fall.

Giles – a three-time three-sport letter winner – had a stellar football high school career for the Bulldogs with numerous accomplishments.  He was voted the Madison High School Teams' Most Valuable Player.  He took the Madison High School team to their first-ever State Class '11A' Football Championship Game in school history, earning runner-up honors.

Giles earned both 1st team All-State and 1st Team All-Conference honors.  He holds the school's season and career records in passing attempts, passing completions, passing yards, passing touchdowns and completion percentage.  In addition, he holds the school record for most yards passing in a single game.

Giles was listed on the Argus Leader's 'Elite 45' list, featuring the best football players in the state of South Dakota.

He was selected to play in the South Dakota All-Star football game this coming summer.

He was also earned Academic All-State for his academic accomplishments in the classroom.

"Jacob is very poised beyond his years and will come in ready to compete," said Anderson.  "He does a great job of delivering the football on target, as well as extending plays with his legs.  I like that he is not only a great athlete in multiple sports, but he is also very academically gifted.  Jacob is a competitor in everything he does, which is what I like the most!"

Jacob is the son of Chris and Karen Giles of Madison, S.D.  His parents are both alumni of Dakota State and his dad, Chris also played football for the Trojans.  Jacob was coached by MHS head coach Max Hodgen, a three-time NAIA All-American linebacker alumnus for the Trojans.  Jacob plans to major in English.
