Dukes signs professional contract with Vegas Knight Hawks

By Christopher Coombs

Former NAIA All-American and National Championship winning quarterback Cameron Dukes has inked his name on a professional contract with the Vegas Knight Hawks. The Knight Hawks are part of the Indoor Football League.

Two days after signing his first professional contract, Dukes appeared in a reserve role late in the action of the Knight Hawks' 68-23 win over the San Diego Strike Force. Dukes contributed six points, scoring Vegas' final touchdown of the game on a one-yard QB keeper up the middle.

During his time with the Lindsey Wilson Blue Raiders, Dukes filled the program record book with his success both on and off the field.

Dukes finished his career as a three-time NAIA All-American, three-time Craig Mullins Mid-South Conference Offensive Player of the Year and four-time conference player of the week with 10,439 passing yards and 114 touchdown passes. Dukes took finalist honors for the William V. Campbell Trophy, which goes to the top football student-athletes in the nation while landing NAIA scholar-athlete, three academic all-conference accolades, and two CoSIDA Academic All-District(R) honors.

The Knight Hawks return to the field on Saturday, May 21 in what will be Dukes' second game. All the Vegas games can be watched on the IFL youtube page.
