The University of Louisville football program wins another hat-picking contest Thursday, with Keion Wakefield, a talented wide receiver from Male High School, picking the Cardinals.
Wakefield briefly picked up a University of Kentucky hat, giving Wildcat fans a fleeting thrill, before placing it aside and donning the UofL hat. He chose the Cardinals even though his brother Keron plays at the Lexington school.
A 5-foot-9, 165-pounder, Wakefield helped Male High to an 11-1 record last season and had 40 catches for 670 yards and 12 touchdowns. He’s obviously serious about playing college football at the higher level.
