Jake Lemming added to help lead Prep Redzone growth, coverage

Prep Network continued a busy stretch in its football operations this summer, announcing the hire of Jake Lemming as the Director of National Scouting.

Lemming first joined the team as a regional scout in the midwest, helping compile rankings and content for successful launches in Illinois, Iowa, and Ohio. His social media activity and innovative coverage helped pave the way for nearly 20 Prep Redzone sites launched in 2020.

Most recently, Lemming was an analyst for Tom Lemming Prep Football, as well as a coach at the collegiate level, with a stint as the offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach at Judson University. He’s served on the sidelines at the Divison I level (New Mexico State University and Division III (Benedictine University) as well as high school (Anthony Wayne High School).

Lemming played a defensive back at Bowling Green State University where he helped the team capture the 2015 Mid-American Conference Championship, taking down Northern Illinois before advancing to the GoDaddy Bowl against Georgia Southern.

“Jake has shown a tremendous work ethic in the way he’s covered thousands of players across the Midwest and built relationships with coaches and other scouts in the process,” Prep Network CEO Jake Phillips said.  “He will play a huge part in Redzone’s growth around the country as we work toward our goal of covering more D1, D2, D3, NAIA, and JUCO level players than any other outlet in the country.”

In his new role, Lemming will assist in coverage and networking nationally, working with scouts to maximize the value added to players and readers through Prep Redzone’s coverage and events.
