"Last time I got to speak with coach Kelly was when he came to our school the week of signing day," Dukes said. "I'll be up there for the junior day though. I'm going to go up to the junior day to try to find out where I stand with the coaching staff and the program.

Some players dream of getting a chance to play college football, and other players make a plan to do so. While it is a dream for Chris to continue his football career after high school, he also charted his future.
"Two years ago my goal was to start my sophomore year and that ended up going well," Dulkes explained. "After I started my goal was to get a scholarship. I've got that and now that I've been making my goals, my next goal is to get a state championship ring.
