Former Kentucky Wesleyan star scored 97-yard TD against Patriots


Jacksonville Jaguars rookie Keelan Cole didn’t miss a beat after jumping from Kentucky Wesleyan’s Steele Stadium in Owensboro, Ky. to playing against the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots in Gillette Stadium on the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football last night.

A former Louisville Central standout, Cole shattered receiving records at Kentucky Wesleyan, which earned him an undrafted free agent contract with Jacksonville. Then last night in his first NFL preseason game, he torched the Patriots defense for a 97-yard touchdown pass from Chad Henne.

Cole walked on to Wesleyan’s football team as a cornerback before finishing his college career with 4,582 receiving yards and 59 receiving touchdowns for the Panthers.

    59 TDs and only 589 receiving yards? What an odd stat line.

      If you need a 10 yd touchdown pass, Cole’s your guy.

      Upon further review, that may have been a typo.

    What an incredible story. If he becomes big time, he will have a better story than MJ.

    Great story. Anyone who can make it 4 years in Owensboro deserves all the credit they can get.

      Hey now! First 24 of mine were spent there (minus my 4 years at UK). I long for the slow paced live again. Slow paced town looks better and better the older I get.
