Shawnkel Knight-Goff is one of Louisville’s best kept secrets. A jack of all trades, Knight-Goff has done it all for Doss High School.  Labeled as an outside linebacker by scouting services, that’s not a fair description.  Over the last two years, the 6’4″ 210-pound athlete has played wide receiver, tight end, running back, defensive end,…

Nik Scalzo has quite a bit in common with the 2017 Heisman Trophy winner. Baker Mayfield set records as a high school quarterback.  The UK quarterback commit already has no shortage of school passing records.  Mayfield did not have a lengthy scholarship offer sheet.  Scalzo was primarily recruited by the Ivy League.  Each were over-looked…
