Cole Ousley is one of Kentucky's most prolific quarterbacks. An injury set him back this season, but he finished the year strong and is now preparing for a new chapter at a new school.

Ousley only was able to play in seven games as a junior and only threw for 997 yards due to a shoulder injury. But the 6-foot-3, 190-pounder felt good about his play when he returned from the injury.

"I felt pretty good about my year. I made some mistakes I shouldn't have made, but playing through the pain and playing the last few Lone Oak games ever was very special to me," Ousley said.

Lone Oak High School will close down and become part of McCracken County High.

"It was special to me (being part of the last team). Growing up and looking up to all the guys that played before me and being able to wear the same name across my chest was unbelievable," Ousley continued.

Cole was scheduled to visited LSU and Western Kentucky during the season, but didn't make the trips due to his shoulder surgery. At this point he's focused on recovering from his surgery.

"I am recovering from shoulder surgery that I had on November 27th. It's a new experience for me having to come back from this, but it will be worth it when I suit up as a McCracken County Mustang," said Ousley. "It's just a humbling and new experience for me and I'm excited to take it on. Minor setback, major comeback," Ousley finished.
