UofL Football fans can catch a glimpse of a promising future tonight at 6 pm on ESPN2. Signees Robert Hicks III and Chandler Jones will play in the Under Armour All-America game at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, FL.

Hicks is a highly touted ILB who looks physically ready to step in and play a big role for UofL next year. He is a physical beast with great instincts and speed to burn. Hicks is a triple threat because he can play zone coverage, rush the passer, and be a wall through which no opposing RB can pass. UofL can definitely use him with the departure of Stacy Thomas.

Congrats to UofL Commit Tutu Atwell as his team, the Miami Northwestern Bulls, routed Naples High School Friday night 42-7 to advance to the FL 6A Title game. It’s the first time Northwestern has played in the title game since 2008, when a sophomore QB by the name of Teddy Bridgewater led them.

Atwell played well rushing 5 times for 45 yards and a TD. He also was 3 of 6 passing for 32 yards. He didn’t play the entire second half, however, as he injured his ankle late in the first half.

Both Atwell and his coach told the Miami Herald he would’ve gone back in, but with the lead the team had built he was held out for precautionary reasons.

We here at Cardinal Sports Zone wish him luck in the title game.
