So riddle me this. The leading vote getter on the All-State football team is Bell County’s Monte Merrick. He punts. He place kicks. He’s the best at that in the state. One of the best in the country.
So, let’s say there’s a local school that really really really needs help at the kicker spot. Like, oh, say, the University of Louisville. One would think the Cards would be able to overwhelm this kid with promises of kicking on ESPN, in a BCS conference, in front of 40,000 at Papa J’s. Etc, etc.
Apparently not. He’s matriculating at Western Kentucky in the fall.
You tell me who deserves a kick in the pants on this one?
