LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – The Frederick Douglass high school football program just finished its fifth year in existence, and it already has some Division-I alums to boast in the program.
Early Signing Day was busy for a number of local athletes, including at Frederick Douglass with three players signing to D-I schools.
Dane Key, a senior wide receiver, signed his national letter of intent to the University of Kentucky. The top-rated wide receiver in the state decided to keep his talents close to home and committed to Mark Stoops’ program in November.
Caden Johnson was a stout linebacker for the Broncos and will continue that play at Ball State, signing his national letter of intent to play at the next level.
Both of those commitments were previously announced, but Broncos quarterback Samuel Cornett had an announcement to make at Wednesday’s signing ceremony in the high school auditorium.
Cornett previously was committed to Louisville but as a preferred walk-on, and decided he could find a full scholarship elsewhere. He announced that Western Carolina will be his future destination to play D-I football.
