HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - After stellar high school careers and winning state titles, Belfry’s Brett Coleman and Johnson Central’s Zach Russell are headed to play Division I football in the MAC.

Brett Coleman inked his name with Miami (OH) for the next four years as a safety. Coleman is a three-star recruit and top 20 player in the state of Kentucky, according to 247 Sports.
