Unable to add any new regular season highlights while recovering from ACL surgery in 2017, New England Patriots wide receiver decided to use the time, and his nearly two million followers, to help showcase up and coming high school football talent over his social media accounts with a new weekly segment entitled “JETop11”.
Over Instagram, Edelman instructed fans and players alike to upload their school highlight videos while using the hashtag #JETop11 in their captions so he can pick the best one to showcase each week to eventually compile a top 11 list from the whole season.
Edelman’s first top highlight comes from Wahconah Regional High School in Dalton Massachusetts where sophomore quarterback Ethan Scott breaks multiple tackles on a scramble towards the right sideline, only to then reverse direction from the right to the left sideline and score a 13 yard touchdown on the play.
