Murray, Kentucky isn’t what is known as a hotbed for football. Not only regionally, but not even throughout the state of Kentucky. But last season Murray went 12-1, with their only loss coming to eventual state champion Fort Campbell. One of their standout players is Christian Duncan.

Murray, Kentucky isn’t what is known as a hotbed for football. Not only regionally, but not even throughout the state of Kentucky. But last season Murray went 12-1, with their only loss coming to eventual state champion Fort Campbell. One of their standout players is Christian Duncan.

Murray Head coach Steve Duncan is the father of Christian Duncan. Christian Duncan has been a very productive player in his time for Murray, playing running back, quarterback and defensive back. During the off-season Duncan worked hard on his body and several other areas to improve his ability as a player.

“I have seen drastic improvements in my strength and agility due to our off-season weightlifting program and my involvement in track,” said Duncan.

The 5-foot-10, 170-pound athlete has also received attention from a hand full of schools due to his play this year and in previous years. “I have received attention from Centre College, numerous Ivy League schools and also Murray State,” said Duncan.

So why are these programs looking at Duncan? What does he have to offer at the next level?

“My faith in the Lord gives me the desire to work hard at all aspects of the game, so I believe that hustle and intensity are my two biggest assets,” Duncan said. “I need to improve my overall knowledge of the game and I can always improve on fundamentals such as blocking and tackling,” he said.

Murray’s off to another great start at 3-0 this year after starting off 12-0 last season. Duncan and his teammates hope to continue that unbeaten streak and reach the goal that they have set as a team.

“Our goal as a team is to win the state championship,” said Duncan.
