The transformation of Jacob Golden since his sophomore year at Peoria led to 18 college football offers and his commitment this week to Boise State.

Golden, a senior-to-be, will be Peoria’s first Division I college football player since running back/receiver Jamal Miles went to Arizona State in 2009.
