    KY Players in NAIA Football

    (Post 1 of 2)
    I have taken a sudden interest in NAIA football. Several NKY and KY 2019 graduates are going to be freshman players for their NAIA football teams. Many of these schools live stream their games. You can find out by going to their web site and looking at the schedule the week of the game you want to watch. Or, you may want to see if there is a game near you. They play on Saturdays. I watched a fair number of D2, NAIA, and D1-AA football games last fall and saw a lot of good athletes and some pretty good football. I will be watching a lot more of it this fall.

    In the next post I will provide a list of 2019 graduates whom I know are playing NAIA football this fall. I do not pretend to 100% accuracy so make changes if necessary and pleased add others that I do not have. I got my information from the BGP thread “Class of 2019 College Signings”: Class of 2019 College Signings
