Miller Grove High athlete Kenneth Gilstrap has something that college coaches in all sports covet: speed and more speed.
The 5-10, and 170-pound athlete has made a name for himself on both the football field and track as one of the fastest players in the entire Peach State and his reputation has spread to the college level.
"I have a football offer from Western Kentucky," said Gilstrap, who lines up at defensive back. "Track recruiting just started and it has only been two weeks and I already have offers from Kansas State, Louisville and Kentucky. Western Kentucky has also offered me a track scholarship."
Gilstrap's sub 4.4-second 40-yard dash time is something that benefits him on the football field and on the track.
So, is there any chance that any of the schools that offered a track scholarship would be interested in him as a football player as well?
"I think so," Gilstrap said. "I think Kentucky and Kansas State would offer me for football. I have to send them my highlight tape."
While Gilstrap awaits word back from either of those two schools about a potential football offer, he has already decided on his first official visit sometime this fall.
"I am definitely taking my first visit to Kentucky," he said. "I also am leaning towards visiting Western Kentucky."
