Kameron Wilson from Middlesboro High set to take over in 1A, District 7- @Cgrigs2 @MboroFootball @nosterman2 @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @HopkinsCentral @evans02_mike @_CoachManning @PrepSpin

Kameron Wilson, No. 1, and Cayden Grigsby, No. 2, are set to lead Middlesboro into this new chapter of its program history

’24 WR/DB could end up on either side of the scrimmage line in college

Kameron Wilson has the height, length, athleticism, and explosion to play the college game on either side of the scrimmage line. Probably the biggest thing working against both Grigsby and Wilson is playing at Kentucky’s lowest level of competition (1A, which means damn little as we have before explained) and playing in such a remote and hard to get to part of the commonwealth. Regardless, Grigsby is on a ton of college boards and so is Wilson. Kameron Wilson (like Cayden Grigsby) is a next-level guy for sure.

There are few teams in Kentucky as tradition-rich as the Middlesboro Yellow-Jackets. Unfortunately, for fans hoping to dominate the 7th-district, two such teams just as tradition-rich are Williamsburg and Pineville. Pineville is a Bell County team, so the natural rivalry there is rather obvious.

Junior Highlights

Middlesboro is moving down from 2A to compete with Harlan, Lynn Camp, Pineville, and Williamsburg. We are afraid they will find the sledding no less daunting than when they were in 2A battling Breathitt County for district supremacy on a yearly basis.

Williamsburg will prove itself right tough! Williamsburg (also Yellow Jackets) were 7-3 in ’22 and beat Middlesboro by a single point at home early in the year.

Middlesboro has two very tough customers on its roster who are being both widely recruited. One is Cayden Grigsby and we featured him not too long ago (March/’23). The other is Kameron Wilson.

Wilson had a great junior season for Middlesboro in 2A. Wilson had 38-receptions (1st on team) for 687-yards (1st on team) and 10-TD’s (1st on team).

Wilson picked three (3)-passes, registered 123-IRNY’s, and registered two (2) pick-sixes…

Defensively, Wilson picked three (3)-passes (tied for 1st on team), registered 123-IRNY’s (1st on team), and registered two (2) pick-sixes (1st on team). Wilson was also among the team leaders in PBU’s.

Wilson looks forward to a big, upcoming senior year. He will likely pull double duty again, as “Iron Man” play isn’t uncommon at the 1A level.

Wilson will be at a new classification and in a new district. Is it time for him to take over the reigns from Williamsburg regarding ruling the roost? It may well be at that!
