Former Patrick Henry running back Jalen Cook getting ready for the season of the unknown


Roanoke, VA-(WFXR)-With the college football season on the horizon it has been a tough time for the players to get ready in this COVID-19 pandemic. Especially for players making the transition from high school to college. Recent Patrick Henry running back Jalen Cook is now getting ready for an unpredictable freshman season for the University of Charleston in West Virginia. Cook has picked up 20 pounds of muscle since he last toted the rock for PH. He has done it working out in Roanoke and not on the Charleston campus with his future teammates. Cook feels he is getting ready for the fall the best way he can under the circumstances. “We talk about it all of the time. some of the guys on the football team we are just ready to get down there so we can see each other. We talk to each other every day. We show each other work outs we show each other videos. We talk about the campus and the things we need to do when we get there. Like work ethic wise with the guys going to school they are ready just like I am. It is hard to not go to the campus and just to work out with the team and stuff like that. That is like working from home to grind and get past that COVID-19 stuff to end,” said Cook. Cook isn’t scheduled to hit the Charleston campus until next month.
