HERMON – Jacob Godfrey has been a key part of the success the Machias boys basketball program has had over the course of the past several seasons, but he’s set to take his game to another program to finish out his high school career.
The six-foot-six center will play his senior season at Hermon High School, joining the Hawks basketball program next season. Godfrey will become a key component for the Hawks, with his height serving as perhaps the missing link for a team returning its core next season. The Hawks were the No. 1 seed in Class B North this year, and after barely surviving a quarterfinal matchup with Washington Academy, fell to Orono in the regional semifinals.
Machias rode the performance of Godfrey alongside other contributors such as James Merserau and John Massad to a Class D state title this past season, taking down Greenville in the final. While the other two graduated, Godfrey has one year left as a rising senior. Hermon confirmed Godfrey is a part of the team’s summer roster, and several sources indicated he has officially transferred into the school.
