South-Central Kentucky Football: Video Game Numbers

By DragonFire - Video Game Numbers That’s one way of describing some of the crazy numbers that were put up last Friday night by players on the local teams.

Brown is a Vanderbilt commit that typically plays linebacker and running back. For the first time in his career, he was called on to play quarterback in their game against Hopkinsville on Friday.
