KSU football players honored
Three Kentucky State football players were named to the 2014 All-Commonwealth team last weekend as part of the Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame’s 11th anniversary celebration in Louisville.

Running back Jacquise Lockett, offensive lineman Chadwick Rives and linebacker Terry Horton were honored on the list of student-athletes from the football-playing colleges in Kentucky.

Lockett was the top rusher in the SIAC last season, finishing the 2013 campaign with 1,095 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns.

Horton led the Thorobreds in tackles each of the past seasons and has racked up 196 tackles in his three seasons at KSU.

Rives is the top returning offensive lineman for the Thorobreds and is expected to anchor the offensive line for Kentucky State this coming season.

All three will be seniors this season.

The Kentucky Pro Hall of Fame’s anniversary celebration was Friday in Louisville. Four former NFL stars with roots in the state were inducted.

They were former University of Kentucky running back/wide receiver Larry Seiple, University of Louisville wide receiver Mark Clayton and defensive end Elvis Dumervil, and Manual High School’s Sherman Lewis, who played and coached at Michigan State.
