H.S. FOOTBALL | Bowling Green Star on National Preseason Watch List

07/18/2017 06:54 AM

Like every year, expectations are high for the Bowling Green High School football team.

The Purples are back-to-back state champions and hoping for a three-peat this season.

A key part to whether the team can achieve that goal or not will be the play of senior linebacker Justice Dingle.

Dingle is a three-star prospect, according to Scout. He has received plenty of interest from schools like Kentucky, Tennessee and Purdue.

He also was just named to the Dick Butkus Award High School Watch List. In fact, he is the only player from the Bluegrass on the High School Watch List.

The Butkus Award recognizes the nation’s best linebacker.
