VIDEO BY KAITLIN BROTHERS / MULTIMEDIA EDITOR (WARRENSBURG, Mo.)–Jaylan Zackery, wide receiver of the UCM mules, has had some great success this year in his football career, and at the homecoming game.
Zackery broke a UCM record at homecoming on Saturday, Oct. 14, where they beat Missouri Southern 71-22, and became the all-time leader for Mules football in yardage, with two catches for 53 total yards in the first half.
Just one week prior, Zackery became the all-time UCM leader in receptions at Nebraska-Kearney.
Zackery has 2,288 total receiving yards in his career and his 152 career receptions is also the most in UCM history.
“It means a lot, because when I first got here I never really thought I’d be at the top,” Zackery said. “I just kept grinding and getting better every year, listening to my coaches’ critiques, and just getting better every game, one play at a time.”
