Dane Key makes the extraordinary look ordinary.

Last season as a sophomore the Frederick Douglass wide receiver made SportsCenter’s Top 10 for an incredible one-handed catch in the end zone. Now a junior, he’s making even more highlights this fall. Last night Key was met by a Grant County defender at the end zone. Instead of going through the player, Key went over the top and casually strolled into the end zone.

Douglass defeated Grant County 64-0. Key, the son of former Wildcat Donte Key, wasn’t the only UK legacy making plays in Lexington Thursday night.

Mason Moore, the son of former UK linebacker Marty Moore, caught six passes for 130 yards and two touchdowns to propel Lexington Christian to a 54-14 victory over Dunbar. Before this game Moore only had four career receptions, primarily playing defense for the Eagles.

“We played a bigger team, a 6A school, and I had to step up, help the team out and make some big plays for us,” he told the Herald-Leader.

There were a dozen games played Thursday night across the state. Marion County’s 20-14 victory over Valley was the only game decided by single digits. Tonight should feature a few more fireworks with South Warren taking on Bowling Green in Kroger’s KSR Game of the Week. A few other big games happening around the Bluegrass tonight:

  • 7:30 — Trinity at St. X
  • 7:30 — Bell County at Rockcastle County
  • 7:00 — Caldwell County at Mayfield
  • 6:30 — Bryan Station at Henry Clay
  • 7:30 — Nelson County at Bardstown
  • 7:30 — Dixie Heights at Beechwood
  • 7:00 — PRP at Male
  • 7:00 — Paducah Tilghman at Murray
  • 7:30 — Hazard at Somerset
