The rain might have played in Jayden Jacobs' favor this past Friday.

With rain in much of the area, turnovers were a bit more common than usual. The Van defensive lineman forced two -- both fumbles -- while also finishing with 16 tackles, two sacks and a recovered fumble in the Vandals' 31-13 victory against Palestine.

He is the ETSN.fm + Dairy Queen Week 8 Defensive Player of the Week. He follows Carlisle's Walker Adams, who took the award in Week 7.

The Vandals improved to 5-2 and 1-1 in District 10-4A Division I with the victory. They have a home game against Kilgore (3-5, 1-1) at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
