When we do Homecoming Crownings, the King and Queen are predictably good looking and charming. However, Brookwood High School Homecoming King, Jacob Oldknow, shown being crowned by Principal Bo Ford, is the next level.  

 MG 0947190He is universally celebrated and beloved by the entire Brookwood community.   Jacob is the “Social Media Director” for football, baseball and basketball. Mom Laurie summed it up by saying “Jacob is the Twitter Guy”.  Jacob, oldest of four children, is a fan of anything UGA and hopes to attend University of Georgia to  major in Sports Management.

The best place in Grayson to celebrate almost anything is on the iconic Grayson G.

Some people say they get their remarkable courage from their maternal Grandmother, a noted Sharkeologist.
