Crestview High School football player: Kentucky decision is final

“I just know right now, from the camps they had me work with the outside backers ... they had me as a pass rushing defensive end. I know I’ll probably be a third-down guy with my hands down going to the quarterback.”

Ware said his basketball background would help him at linebacker when he must rotate his hips quickly to change direction and defend on pass player or get in position to tackle.

Ware’s Opp experiment only lasted a few months before he realized he needed to be back in Crestview.

“I was born and raised in Opp, but it’s just the relationships I built with my team and the love that I have here,” he said about why he returned. “I started (high school) here with these boys, and I might as well finish out here with these boys.

“The Opp boys can’t replace the guys I have here in Crestview.”

It hasn’t taken Ware long to warm to new Bulldog coach Tim Hatten.

“I like him (Hatten) better than (former Crestview) coach (Kevin) Pettis,” he said. “He’s a nice guy. He’s won championships on the next level, and he knows how to get it done.
