Former Pioneers now playing college football
Placeholder Image
The legacies of Michael Thrower, Caleb Northcutt, Tyler Glenn and Cody Robinson began over five years ago when the foursome led Warren County Middle School to a conference championship as eighth graders.Their names became synonymous with football over the next four years when they starred for the Pioneers. Even after their departure following last season, their names can still be found in the record books.But after spending seven years being referred to as Pioneers, Thrower, Northcutt, Glenn and Robinson have started to adjust to the new teams they currently represent.All four former Pioneers are playing collegiate football, with Robinson the lone player still in season at Duke University.Following their senior years, each player signed football scholarships to continue their careers.Thrower signed with the Lindsey Wilson College Raiders. Northcutt became a Carson Newman University Eagle, Glenn inked with the Kentucky Christian University Knights and Robinson joined the Duke Blue Devils.The opportunity to continue to play a sport they all grew up with together was too much to pass up for the former Pioneers.Though Northcutt, Glenn and Robinson all received redshirts upon arriving to college, which meant they would spend the season watching games from the sidelines, Thrower stepped in immediately for the Raiders in their second season playing football in NAIA.Always a star in high school, including starting at four different positions as a senior, Thrower had to adjust to being the low man on the depth chart when he arrived in Columbia, Ky.Thrower began the season fourth on the depth chart at wide receiver, but by the time the season started he was a back-up.
