Message from Coach Lucas:

At this time of the year, I get excited when I see parents who have labored to complete a dream. I am always humbled when I see the financial blessings given to families when their child’s education is paid for. Blessings go out to all of you!!

Jake Rist and Damien Smith have opted to play for U of L as preferred walk-ons.

Be on the look out for more and BE PROUD Crimsons!
