Trigg County football players Andrew Stewart and Nick Watkins have signed to continue their football careers at Kentucky Christian University. The duo made the announcement official at a signing ceremony Wednesday at the high school.
Stewart, a two-year starter at quarterback, threw for 1,326 yards and 13 touchdowns as a senior. The yardage total was 10th most in a season in TCHS history. He was also the team's leading rusher with 616 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2010.
For his career, Stewart threw for 2,162 yards and 13 touchdowns.
In addition, Stewart was Trigg County's leading tackler the past two seasons and earned All Western Kentucky Conference honors as a junior and senior.
Nick Watkins led Trigg County with 19 catches for 368 yards and four touchdowns for the Wildcats in 2010. For his career, Watkins caught 35 passes for 567 yards and five touchdowns.
He was also among the team leaders in takeaways on defense each of the last two years and was an All-WKC selection in 2010.
Not only are Watkins and Stewart teammates, but they are also cousins, having played together since an early age.
TCHS head coach Shannon Burcham thinks that comradery will help them at KCU.
Kentucky Christian University is an NAIA school located in Grayson, Kentucky. They are a member of the Mid-South Conference.
Former Washington Redskins and Detroit Lions receiver Mike Furrey was named the head coach of the fourth-year program in December. The Knights were 0-11 last year.
