A future Louisville Cardinal wide receiver is a state champion.
Keion Wakefield pulled in four receptions for 78 yards and two touchdowns in Louisville Male's 41-14 win over Lexington Lafayette in the state's 6A Championship in Bowling Green on Saturday evening.
"It feels great," he told Cardinal Authority. "The atmosphere was amazing. Our sideline was absolutely crazy. Being in the state championship has its own feeling. It was great."
The 5-foot-11, 185-pound speedster, struggled with an injury throughout his senior season. He missed a few early season games, eventually playing seven games to finish with 15 receptions for 287 yards and four touchdowns.
"My senior season didn't go as well for me personally, but ultimately, as a team, there's no better feeling than winning a state championship," he said.
Wakefield, who committed to the Cardinals in July, had an in-home visit with U of L assistant Chris Klenakis last Thursday.
"We just talked and set my official visit and things like that," he said. "I'm going to visit on January 15."
Fellow local commitments Rodjay Burns of Trinity and Manual's Derek Dorsey will also make their official visit the same weekend.
