PRESTONSBURG - Another former University of Kentucky player has been added to the staff for the Highest Level Football Camp featuring current Cincinnati Bengals linebacker, former Kentucky Mr. Football, High School All-American and First Team All-SEC performer Micah Johnson. The camp will also feature former University of Kentucky standout and professional football player David Jones. Registration remains open for the Highest Level Football Camp, which will be held at StoneCrest Park in Prestonsburg on Saturday, June 16 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. The youth football camp is for players ages 6-18.


As a high school senior, Johnson ranked as the nation’s top player at his position. Johnson was named Kentucky Mr. Football and earned High School All-American honors. He was a First Team All-SEC performer at the University of Kentucky before playing for the Miami Dolphins in the NFL. He is currently playing for the NFL’s Cincinnati Bengals.


Jones, whose professional experience includes stints with the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens and the Green Bay Blizzard of the Indoor Football League (IFL), will provide instruction to defensive backs and wide receivers during the camp. He earned multiple All-State honors at Belfry High School and made a quick transition to the college ranks, earning All-SEC Freshman honors as a member of the UK football program. The versatile Jones excelled as both a defensive back and kick returner for the Wildcats. Jones also lined up at wide receiver in the SEC.
