Paintsville Football player Kash Daniel continues to garner recognition across the nation as one of the premier High School Football players in not only the State of Kentucky, but the whole Nation. Daniel has been a highly sought after football recruit after his top notch performances at some of the Nation top Football showcases and camps.

Daniel is a four-star, top-100 player by 247Sports, and on Thursday, accepted an invitation to play in the prestigious U.S. Army All-American Bowl in January in San Antonio, Texas. Daniel is the third prospect from the state of Kentucky to commit to playing in this premier high school all-star game.
