Recently, Bunker Hill High School senior football player Drake Rose signed a letter of intent to further his athletic career.

Rose, an explosive running back that played for Staunton in a Bulldog/Minutemen co-op, will be contributing his talents as a member of the semi-pro Central Illinois Cougars this upcoming fall.

CIC head coach Kenny Miles plans to utilize Rose’s speed and firepower on both sides of the ball, especially on offense.

Miles reportedly classified Rose as “one of the best athletes” he had ever seen at the high school level and that he has the potential to make it as far as the National Football League.

Rose’s father, Keith, said in a press release that Drake was “looking forward to putting Bunker Hill on the map.”

“We are so proud of what Drake has accomplished in his football career,” K. Rose said. “His coach has said that he sees him making it even further than this.”

Drake is the son of Keith and Keri Rose.
