Paintsville 43, Frankfort 0: University of Kentucky commitment Kash Daniel ran for two touchdowns, threw for another and led a smothering defensive attack in Paintsville's 43-0 victory at Frankfort on Friday night.
Daniel — regarded as one of the nation's top linebacker prospects — got Paintsville on the board on its first possession with a 3-yard touchdown run less than two minutes into the game. He added a 53-yard touchdown pass on a perfect spiral to freshman James Allen in the final seconds of the first half.
The Mr. Football contender also scored on a 46-yard run late in the third quarter to give Paintsville a 36-0 lead and start the running clock. He did not play in the fourth quarter, finishing with 120 yards on 14 carries.
On defense, Daniel was credited with 16 tackles.
