Senior WR/Safety so much more for his Rebels

There weren’t too many players, at any level of competition, who were as important to their respective teams as Nate Redding was to his Todd County Central Rebels. The Rebels had a great year and really shocked some people with their competitiveness. Nate Redding was instrumental in their play.

Todd County Central had a great season. It is almost a shame teams like the Rebels can get to 13th in the final KHSAA Ratings Percentage Index and then have to go on the road in the first round and play the No. 3 ranked Mayfield Cardinals (11-0).

Still, the end of a season in Elkton, Kentucky has wound into the end of an era for the Redding family. When it comes to senior seasons, it is hard to imagine a young man doing more for his team than Redding did for his.

[T]he end of a season…has wound into the end of an era…

The 6’0,” 175-pound WR/Safety, who is being recruiting heavily by teams like Lindsey Wilson and Mount St. Joseph’s, was one (1) for one (1) through the air for 42-yards. He had 33-rushes for 236-yards and 3-rushing TD’s.

He was the team’s leading receiver. Redding had 48-receptions for 679-yards and 5-TD’s. Reading was the second leading scorer on the ball club; which figures, after all, he was the PK and converted 13 of 18 PAT’s and converted both of his attempted FG’s.

That is just what Redding did offensively. We did mention Redding played safety too.

On defense, Redding was second on the team in tackles with 89-stops. Redding pitched in a TFL and 4-INT’s (led the team). Redding also logged 62-Interception Return Net Yards (led the team).

No two ways to say it…[Nate Redding] did it all.

No two ways to say it…he did it all. Redding was a three-phase player who contributed mightily in all phases. Now, the high school part of it (at least) is finished.

There were tears shed on the field last night in Mayfield. There were hugs-a-plenty and stories told with memories shared. This phase of Nate’s football career is, even now, beginning to fade into the fabric of lore and tales, some taller than others.

There will be a tomorrow athletically for this particular Rebel, we predict. He just has too many tools in the chest for there not to be.

There will be a tomorrow…

HB Lyon

We were privileged to travel the first leg of this life’s journey with all the “Nate Reddings” out there across the commonwealth of Kentucky. The honor was ours.

There will be a tomorrow. We don’t plan on going anywhere. KPGFootball will be here to record it.

We can’t wait to analog your future exploits. They will, undoubtedly, bedazzle us.
