Jake Edwards (born 11 May 1976) is a former English/American professional footballer, who plays as a striker.

Edwards was born in Manchester, England. He went to Hanover Park High School in New Jersey, where he played football all four years. He was a ball boy at the 1994 World Cup when he lived in the United States, and started his playing career at Wrexham before going on loan to Blackpool and Telford United.

Telford United then signed him permanently. He then moved to Yeovil Town for a season before signing for Exeter City. He was then loaned out twice more, first to Tamworth, then to Chester City where he helped the club avoid relegation from the Football League. He then signed for Crawley Town at the start of the 2006 07 season.

On 11 January 2007, Edwards left the Red Devils to join his former club Tamworth on a contract that would see him with The Lambs until the end of the season with an option on a further season.

On 10 May 2007, Edwards and Tamworth team mate John McGrath joined local rivals Burton Albion following Tamworth's relegation from the Football Conference. He was released at the end of the season .
