CHS football players sign with Kentucky State University

CHS seniors Micah Corley and Arick Groves will continue their academic and football careers at Kentucky State University this fall.

 

Corley and Groves signed their letters of intent in a special ceremony on Monday, Feb. 6.

 

Friends, family members, coaches and teammates attended.

 

Corley received the Leading Tackler and Linebacker awards this season, and Groves received the Leading Rusher, Scorer and Receiver awards.

 

The two were named to the all-district team after their outstanding performance this season.

 

Corley is also one of four seniors on this year’s CHS boys’ varsity basketball team.

 

At Monday’s ceremony, CHS Principal Kirby Smith said Corley and Groves will be missed when they graduate in May, in several ways.

 

They will be missed on the football field, he said, but also in the classroom.

 

“As their principal, we’ll miss them in the hallways as well,” Smith said. “I’ve enjoyed watching you grow up and mature over these four years.”

 

Smith called the two “first class” and said they should never forget that they have a home at Campbellsville High School.

 

Corley thanked his parents, Latonya and Wilando “Chop” Bridgewater, for their support and allowing him to do what was necessary to be a better student and athlete.

 

He thanked his godparents, Robert and Karrie Lee, for their support.

 

Corley thanked coach Jeffery Demary for pushing him during workouts, and all of his basketball coaches for keeping him in shape.

 

Groves thanked God for getting him to this point in his life.

 

“Without him, I wouldn’t be here,” Groves said.

 

He thanked his family for helping him stay on top of his studies and for pushing him to go farther in life.

 

Head CHS football coach Dale Estes said the goal is always to see his players continue their football career at the collegiate level. But pursuing higher education is even more important, he said.

 

“We feel like, as a staff, their best days are ahead of them,” Estes said.

 

He said Corley and Groves are young men of great character and he is proud of them.

 

“They’re always Eagles,” Estes said.

 

Corley will study criminal justice at Kentucky State University, with the goal of becoming a police officer.

 

He said he chose KSU because of its overall campus vibe, which feels like a mix of a small and large school.

 

“It’s a good atmosphere,” he said.

 

Groves said he doesn’t know yet what he will study at KSU, but is considering criminal justice or physical therapy.

 

He said he chose KSU because of the family atmosphere, and the bond he has already made with his future teammates.
