A member of the Owen County football team will be continuing his career next year when he heads to college.

Senior Tyler Pruitt signed last week to play football at Eastern Kentucky University.

Pruitt was an integral part of the Owen County football program over the last four years. The senior played both offense and defense for the Rebels and was known for always being where the ball was.

Owen County High School Head Coach Adam Fowler, who coached Pruitt the last two years, had high praise for his player.

“Tyler was the best player on the field almost every game. Teams tried to take him out of the game and he would always make plays. You don’t replace someone like him,” Fowler said.

Pruitt, who is also a good student, is interested in pursuing a degree in engineering.
