At Louisville's Holy Cross High, all eyes on massive freshman Kiyaunta Goodwin

He’ll be playing at one of Kentucky’s smallest schools, but Kiyaunta Goodwin is expected to make a big impact as a freshman.
Goodwin, a 6-foot-7 315-pounder, received national media attention over the summer because of his size and talent and is expected to be a starter for the Holy Cross High School football team this season.
He’s only a freshman, but Goodwin already has college scholarship offers from the likes of Alabama, Florida State, Georgia and several others.

Holy Cross coach Bob Bronger doesn’t dispute Goodwin’s talent but is trying to temper expectations.
“What I’m trying to get everybody to remember is that he’s 14 years old and a true freshman,” Bronger said
