The Kroger Hometown Pickup Tour has inserted itself into the state of Kentucky's oldest rivalry. The Old Rivalry between Manual and Male began in 1893. COVID-19 interrupted Louisville's season-ending clash for the first time in more than 100 years. When the series resumes, one star for the Crimson is ready for revenge. In 2019 Jawaun Northington rushed for 185 yards and two touchdowns against the Bulldogs, but the Crimson came up one point short against the defending 6A state champs. After helping Manual end Male's season on the hardwood, one of the state's top running backs is seeking out a rivalry victory on the gridiron. A 6-foot, 195-pound athlete, COVID-19 slowed down the recruitment of the bruising runner until this summer. While camping at Kentucky he picked up a scholarship offer, his sixth so far, joining the ranks of Cincinnati, Indiana, Boston College, Ball State and Purdue. Northington, a cousin of Kentucky's SEC color barrier-breaking pioneer, talked about his recruitment, senior year goals and much more in the latest installment of the Kroger Hometown Pickup Tour.
