PCA senior Jake Bius has declared his intent to pursue his passion for football at Stetson University, an NCAA Division I school in DeLand, Florida, on National Signing Day surrounded by family and friends. Bius is only the second student-athlete in the football program’s history to sign with a Division I school.
Bius, a 6’4”, 275-pound beast, stepped up for the Panthers during the 2019 season on both sides of the ball as an offensive tackle and defensive lineman. During his senior season, he made 35 tackles, 15 assists, and multiple quarterback hurries, as well as 25 pancake blocks. Bius was awarded the Team Captain Award for his leadership qualities and work ethic.
“Jake is always hungry to improve and appreciative of the coaching he gets to make him an even better athlete,” said Ed Lovvorn, PCA’s defensive coordinator. This attitude will take him a long way.”
Bius has been passionate about football since he was a young boy, and has played since he was in second grade. He has been a starter for the Panthers since his sophomore year.
“Jake is a hard worker and a great leader in the way he works on and off the field,” said Jeremy Carter, PCA’s head football coach. “He has a determination that is required at the next level of football. He is a Godly, young man with all the right tools to become the man that God desires him to be. I am proud of Jake and the way he has modeled leadership and work ethic for future student-athletes.”
