A local high school quarterback has made the big announcement that he will be playing college football for a team in the Big Ten.

Following his final season with the Titans, Gibson Southern High School Quarterback Brady Allen will be staying in the Hoosier State as he heads to West Lafayette to play for Purdue.

After two years in the recruiting process, Gibson Southern Quarterback Brady Allen announced his college decision.

"I'm really excited for him, it's been a long process for him," said Nick Hart, Gibson Southern High School Head Football Coach. "He had a lot of great options, I think he made a great decision and he's really happy about it - so we're really excited for him."

West Lafayette is just under three-and-a-half hours from Gibson Southern High School, and Allen couldn't pass up the chance to play for Jeff Brohm and the Boilermakers.

"I went to the Vanderbilt game and being able to see Elijah Sindelar throw the ball for 500 yards, that was pretty cool," said Allen. "So wanting to be a part of that and thinking to myself that I could be able to do that was pretty awesome."

But, before Allen hits the field at Ross-Ade Stadium, the Gibson Southern Junior has some unfinished business with the Titans.

"Going into every year we want to be able to win a sectional, win a regional, win a semi-state, and end up at state," Allen explained. "So every year that's the goal and I think that should be the goal for anybody."

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
