He's also a special football player with unique skills. He won the Paul Hornung Award in Kentucky and was a U.S. Army All-American.
The Marion County High School Boys Soccer Team is looking to build off its 2015 campaign, in which they advanced to the Fifth Region Tournament as runner-ups of the 18th District. The Knights finished with a 10-11 record last season.
