Jackson, Michigan– Local athlete and quarterback, Khol Partridge, has committed to play at University of Findlay for their football program. As far as high school quarterbacks go, Partridge is certainly one of the best to play in the Jackson area in recent memory. He leaves the Golden Eagles holding nearly every school record for his position.
Columbia Central had the program’s best year since 1981 this previous season behind his arm. The three-year starting quarterback had the best season of his career. He completed 154 passes, at a 59.9 percent completion rate, for 2,317 passing yards and 26 passing touchdowns. All of that overshadowed by only four interceptions. He also finished with 511 rushing yards on 74 carries, good for nine rushing touchdowns.
Partridge went 23-9 as a starting quarterback and made it to the postseason all three years he was the field general. The program had only punched a playoff ticket just twice in its history prior to him. Khol finishes as the school’s all-time leader in touchdowns (79), passing touchdowns (53), passing yards in a season (2,317), passing yards in a career (4,861) and total offense (7,178 yards).

It’s unclear what the situation he’ll be stepping into is for the Oilers. They finished 8-3 last season, but graduated their starting quarterback. Adam Bertke was named honorable mention all-Great Midwest Athletic Conference after completing 117-of-193 passes for 1,582 yards. He threw 15 touchdowns and six interceptions.
There were 16 players from Michigan on the Oilers’ roster in 2018, including just one player from Ypsilanti. Everyone at JTV is wishing Khol the best of luck as he begins his journey at the collegiate level.
