Madisonville has had around 4 kids that went D1 in the last 4-5 years. One I think went to Ball State. One went to Michigan. And another one went to a service academy. They also had a kid signed by WKU last year. As well as Blake Boyd who signed with Louisville then transferred to WKU in the early 2000's.

Add Julius Yeast - Ohio State (later transferred to EKU) and Adrian Patton - UK to Harrodsburg grads to go D1.

 

The crazy thing is they were there at the same time as the Johnson Brothers. For one of the 10 smallest football playing schools in the state to have 4 Div 1 defensive linemen starting for them at the same time is crazy. The fact that Beechwood beat them in the finals that year says tons about how good Beechwood was.

Boyle County had David Jennings from 2002 I believe, who was Academic all conference during his playing days at TCU. Jennings set some state kicking records while at Boyle.

 

Also, 2015 Boyle Grad Addison Coffey is currently a walk on kicker at UK.
