Corey Kelly’s coaches knew they had a special talent on their hands early in the football star’s career at Clear Falls High School.
The 2021 first-team All-District selection for Texas 24-6A and the current commitment of the Baylor Bears made a serious impact in his first year as a standout JV. Kelly was originally slated to jump into varsity for the Clear Falls playoff game this season before coach Zach Head encouraged Kelly to focus on the basketball program instead. Kelly — a dual-sport athlete who compares himself to Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green — complied. But he was more than ready to return to the gridiron for the move to varsity football.
