When you talk about a player who does it all, look no further than Paducah Tilghman's Darrius Spivey-Nunn. The four year starter wows coaches on the offensive side of the ball every week.

"He may be one of the better receivers on this end of the state," said Caldwell County head coach David Barnes.

But he's not just a receiver, Spivey-Nunn also returns kicks, and coaches say he's actually best on the defensive side of the ball as a cornerback or safety.

"For Paducah Tilghman to play a kid on both sides of the ball, you know he's special," admitted Trigg County head coach Coby Lewis.

"He's just so intelligent back there," said Paducah Tilghman head coach Randy Wyatt.

"Those types of kids are very few and far between in high school, where you can pretty much eliminate the other team's best wide receiver with your best defensive back," said Brad Lawson, Calloway County's head football coach.

So it would come at no surprise to see Spivey-Nunn playing at the next level.

"He just keeps getting better," said Graves County head coach Lance Gregory. "I think he's a potential division one prospect."

"I think that somebody out there, if they're not recruiting him right now, they need to get on board with him because he's that type of player," Lawson said.
