As the saying goes, "there must be something in the water."

Dwyer High School has not one, but two lockdown defensive backs. As most of our readers know, the Kentucky Wildcats just landed Cedric Dort Jr. Now, it looks like they may have interest in his class of 2018 teammate, Kenih Lovely.

Tuesday evening, I was able to chat with the 2018 star.

Me:

Are there any influences or motivations that you would like to mention?

Kenih:

Yes. My mom and dad and grandma play a big role of why I play the game they are who I do it for.  Also, I have a couple older brothers that also play a big role in why I play they game and why I'm where I am today in the game because they push me to be the best I can be.

Me:

You literally play the same position, on the same team, as recent UK commit Cedric Dort Jr. Do you guys push each other in practice?

Kenih:

Yes. We push each other to the max on a daily basis. We also work together on free time outside of practice. Crazy thing about us is he is like my older brother, but we look up to each other and want the best for one another.

Me:

You are both similar athletes and very talented. Your high school coach is a very lucky guy. I have to ask, what are the chances we see you in UK blue, playing alongside Dort Jr.?

Kenih:

As of now, I don't know, but if I had the offer, it will be a high chance they (UK) will be my No. 1, but I still have a lot of time to way my options out and see what best fit me.

Me:

Certainly. It is a huge decision. You want to be sure when you make it. Are there any schools you are starting to look at/think about a little extra?

Kenih:

Not really focused on any schools right now just focusing on the season and ready to have a break out year.

Me:

Awesome! I definitely look forward to seeing you rise up the rankings. I think we have hit enough serious stuff. It is time for some lighter questions. Favorite NFL/NCAA player?

Kenih:

Patrick Peterson in NFL. My favorite college player was Mackensie Alexander, but he is in the NFL now.

Me:

Cedric also said Peterson, Also, favorite breakfast?

Kenih:

Did he? And it's a place called John G's down here where we stay.

Me:

I am sure they'll appreciate the publicity. And now the big question. Rhianna or Beyoncé?

Thank you so much for your time. Before we wrap up, are there any people that you would like to give a quick shout out, too.

Kenih:

My friends Jahmai Quan I would shout out Ced but he should already be on there when you post it.

Me:

Thanks again.

I was very fortunate to get to interview each of these young stars from Dwyer. Both left me with a very positive impression and I cannot help but think Kenih does have that breakout season.  It would be wonderful to see Kinah starring in the Wildcat secondary, but I will be following his career regardless.

Good Luck Kenih from the Big Blue Nation!
