There have been a number of Northern Kentucky players gaining national attention the past few years, but perhaps none more than Dixie Heights Junior Zeke Pike. Pike is the son of former Buffalo Bills defensive and special teams player Mark Pike. The 6'5" 220 lb. Pike is entering his junior year at Dixie.
Pike has been making the rounds on the recruiting circuit already which has brought a great deal of attention for him. He currently has offers from: Auburn, Alabama, Cincinnati, Iowa, Kentucky, Oklahoma State, Purdue, and Texas A&M. There are also a number of schools who continue to court Pike to come play for them.
With the High School football season just around the corner I am looking forward to catching a few Dixie games. If he continues at this pace it seems that he will just about have his choice of schools which will be great for bringing attention to the region.
