Denmark's football team has had a number of Division I college commitments in the two months, and on Wednesday afternoon, the Danes added another one, with linebacker Nick Carozza announcing his intention to attend Eastern Kentucky University via Twitter.

Carozza picked the Colonels over other FCS programs like UT-Chattanooga, Tennessee Tech and Austin Peay, among others. EKU was the first Division I program to offer Carozza in early March.

Carozza has been a key leader for Denmark since the football team began playing last year. In 2018, he finished with 73 total tackles as a linebacker, with eight tackles for loss. He was also utilized as a reciever during his junior season, totaling 220 yards and four touchdowns.
