ENTERPRISE, Ala. — Enterprise High School football athlete, Kaderrious McCray, 6-foot, 210-pound middle linebacker, committed with the University of Pikeville this spring.

McCray landed a spot on his high school varsity football team his sophomore year. Never will McCray forget, “my favorite high school coach, David Faulkner. He took a chance and saw what I could be as a man, a leader, and a football player when I did not see it in myself”

McCray led the Enterprise football program with 175 tackles, 25 tackles-for-loss, 12 sacks, 3 forced fumbles and 2 fumble recovers, 3 pass breakups, and 1 blocked punt.

McCray recalled his favorite memory being a, “3-game winning streak, two of which were major comebacks against top teams in our division.”

Leaving advice to upcoming Enterprise football players, McCray said, “Impact the world outside of football. Be more than just an athlete. Be a light to the world while being an athlete.”

While deciding where to attend and play collegiate level, “I felt like God had UPike in His will and I was not going to fight that.”

McCray will continue his football career in Pikeville, Kentucky as a middle linebacker for the University of Pikeville.

“Summer training officially beings on July 7th [for Pikeville football],” said McCray.

Not only did McCray lead on the football field; he also participated in youth group events at his local church.

Growing up, McCray has always had the quality of competitiveness. McCray said, “I have a competitive edge, I never play for second place.”

The University of Pikeville is over six hundred miles away from McCray’s hometown of Enterprise, Alabama. At Pikeville, McCray plans to major in social work.

McCray’s signing with the University of Pikeville represents everything he has worked toward in his life and should serve as insight for other athletes looking to play collegiate level sports.
