Franklin County athlete drawing interest

QB/S Kaelin Ammons of Franklin County (Ky.) High School will attend the All-American Combine at Louisville on May 20

Franklin County High School's Kaelin Ammons can play on both sides of the ball. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound athlete has excelled behind center and in the defensive secondary during his prep career.

Last fall Ammons helped guide his team to a 10-2 record and into the second round of the Class 3A playoffs. His final season numbers tell the story of why he has started to attract attention from a number of schools. Ammon's finished the '05 season not only as his team's leading passer with 3,355 yards and 41 touchdowns, but also as the team's top rusher with 836 yards and an additional 15 touchdowns. He also completed 63% of his 302 attempts with just 8 interceptions. Defensively he recorded 81 tackles and two interceptions.

"He's been invited to a lot of junior days," his father Chuck Ammons told "He's been to Tennessee, Louisville, Kentucky and Western Kentucky I'd say within the last 45 days."

However, it's not yet clear at which position college coaches are looking at for the three-time All-Region selection.

"We really don't know which position he might play because the coaches haven't told us anything yet," his father explained.

Ammons, who has also drawn recent interest from Cincinnati, Florida State, Michigan State and others, will use the opportunity of participating in a number of upcoming combines, including the All-American combine at Louisville on May 20, to further display his abilities.

"He's also going to go to the Elite 11 and Nike one's," Ammons said of his son's upcoming schedule.
