For the past decade, people across the country, especially Kirkwood residents, have turned on the TV every Sunday in the fall to see the name “Maclin” on their screen. But before all the fame, Jeremy Maclin, 2006 KHS graduate, walked the same halls KHS students do today. Now, he is back as a football coach, serving the team that built the foundation of a nine-year-long NFL career. He has been helping the community the past several years with his organization JMac Gives Back, and now he is at KHS every day to coach student-athletes.
“He loves it,” Jay Maclin, Jeremy’s cousin and current senior, said. “He just feels good to be back home.”
