Former Coffeyville Red Ravens Advance to Super Bowl

Updated:

Coffeyville, Kan. - Former Coffeyville Community College running back Brandon Jacobs will be going for his second Super Bowl ring on Feb. 5 in Super Bowl XLVI.  Jacobs won a ring as a a member of the Giants 2007 Super Bowl XLII championship team.

In 2001, his freshman year at Coffeyville, he ran for 1,349 yards and 17 TDs and gained Kansas Jayhawk Conference All-Conference honorable mention honors and was named team MVP. In his sophomore season for the Red Ravens, he racked up 1,896 yards and 20 TDs on 267 carries for a 7.1 yard-per-carry average. In light of these efforts Jacobs was named a NJCAA All-American and to the KJCCC All-Conference First Team. He once again garnered the Team MVP trophy and was also named the recipient of the Reb Russell Memorial Football Scholarship Award. The statistic of 1,896 yards rushing ranks second all-time on the Ravens individual season rushing yardage record.

Jacobs played at Auburn in 2003 and at Southern Illinois in 2004. Jacobs was a fourth round draft pick of the N.Y. Giants in 2005 and he has played his entire NFL career with the Giants.

A second former Raven is also a current member of the N.Y. Giants. Devin Thomas attended Coffeyville Community College, where he redshirted in 2004 and played as a freshman in 2005. Thomas was the Ravens leading receiver in 2005 with 33 catches good for 674 yards and five touchdowns. Thomas transferred to Michigan State for the 2006 season and as a sophomore had six catches. Thomas played well his junior year with 79 catches for 1,260 yards and eight touchdowns. Thomas decided to forgo his senior year at Michigan State and declared himself eligibile for the 2008 draft. 

Thomas was drafted in the second round, 34th overall, by the Washington Redskins. Thomas played for the Redskins two full seasons. He split the 2010 season between the Redskins and Carolina Panthers before being signed by the Giants in November 2010.
