LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – The Lexington Christian Eagles have been shy of a State Title for two-straight seasons losing to Beechwood out of Fort Mitchell two seasons in a row. However, with one of their biggest off-season moves, they’re more hungry for a state title now than they ever have been before.

The sophomore quarterback transferred from Larue County and enrolled at Lexington Christian this Summer.

He’s now the Eagles QB1, moving two-year starter Drew Nieves to wide receiver after leading the Eagles to two-straight Class 2A State Finals.

“He’s a kid that hasn’t played in a spread offense before, and had to come in here instantly and get to know our kids,” head coach Doug Charles said. “However, Cutter has done a great job at getting acclimated at what we do. We’re slowly building our playbook for him, and I see that he’s getting more and more comfortable and certainly has an immense amount of talent.”

The 6-feet 5-inches, 200-pound quarterback will take over the reins of one of the best offenses in the state that also brings back returning production from the 2021 season.

One of those weapons will be fifth-year senior Drew Nieves at wide receiver and senior J’Veontae Emerson will take over as LCA’s starting running back. He had 500 yards and two TDs last season.

Junior Parker Chaney and senior Evan Brown will also have larger roles within the offense as receivers while continuing their roles in the secondary.

“I don’t think there’s pressure on this team at all to meet the expectations people have for us,” sophomore quarterback Cutter Boley said. “We’re just going to go out there and do what we’re supposed to do. If the numbers look crazy, I feel like that’s what’s suppose to be happening. We have a bunch of weapons, and my job is to get my weapons the ball, so I’m going to let them do the work.”
