A great week just got even better for three Danville High School seniors. After winning the 2A State Championships on Saturday, D’Mauriae VanCleave, Jaleel Warren and Christian Hill were offered preferred walk-on spots at Kentucky, per their assistant coach Darius Baughman.

VanCleave was named MVP of the 2A final after scoring four touchdowns and intercepting two passes. He finished his senior season with 82 catches for 1,095 yards and 14 touchdowns, along with 762 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns on 72 carries. At 5’8″, he may be small in stature, but he’s FAST:

At 6’3″ 215 lbs., tight end/defensive end Jaleel Warren used all of his height to get this touchdown grab in Saturday’s game:
Hill, a 6’2″ defensive lineman, was also impressive in Saturday’s game, giving Mayfield’s offense fits. He finished the season with 54 tackles.
An undefeated season, a state championship, and the chance to represent their home state at the next level? That’s one hell of a week. Congrats, guys.
