  • NB’s Humphrey to play football at Campbellsville

     HEBRON ESTATES – Sometimes schools recruit football players and other times football players recruit schools.

    It worked.

    “I decided to contact them,” the Cougar senior said. “It was about four months ago now. I started the interest in them in me.
