Drew Barker receives his Army All-American Bowl jersey


Congrats to future UK QB and KSR writer Drew Barker, who received his Army All-American Bowl jersey this morning in a ceremony at Conner High. Barker will play on the same team as Matt Elam in the game on January 4th, and will be right next to him during his televised announcement.

Barker has had a killer senior season, leading his Conner Cougars to a 7-2 record with one game left in the regular season. Over the last three games, he’s gone 55-75 for 925 yards, 14 touchdowns and no interceptions, along with three rushing touchdowns. On Saturday, Conner travels to Covington Catholic to conclude the regular season.

Drew will be by later this week with his latest diary entry. Until then, enjoy his midseason highlights:

    Drew Barker is looking pretty pretentious with that bow tie…

    I believe the game against Cov Cath is a Saturday day game unless they have installed lights.

  3. UK2K

    Tim, that’s correct. They play at 1:00

    If whenever it is being said that he is going to be right next to Matt Elam when he commits it means that he is literally going to be right next to him, I don’t see how this doesn’t bode well for Kentucky. Unless it is meant he is going to be right next to him, in the sense that they are going to be in the same square mile as one another.

    he reminds me of Will Fidler. Played against terrible competition in KY HS football, highly rated (fidler was top 10 pro style qb), enrolled in school in Jan. Hopefully he pans out better than Fidler, but with our history, i doubt it.

    Will Fidler never got a fair shot!!!!!!!

  7. Rockfield, KY

    I’m surprised we got him away from South Carolina and Steve Spurrier. He’s got a lot of Connor Shaw to his game.

  8. JRock1966

    Yeah, I think its safe to say he is going to help us out.

    I agree Rockfield; I’ve said all along to the naysayers that if Spurrier wanted this kid, he can obviously play SEC football. He’s going to help us; a lot.

    The pass at 1:10 was money. Hopefully he can throw like that at UK

    You said Fidler played against weak compition in High School. You obviously dont have a clue about football, or probably anything else. He played teams like Owensboro, who have won State championships produced several All Americans like Mark Higgs and many NFL players and is 34th in the Nation in wins, as well as Christian county a State Championship Scool not to mention Bowling Green who has won several State Campionships including the last 2 5A championships and will win it again this year. They are the best team in the state hands down this year ask St. X. Read a book.

    Make your own determination of last three games, he’s gone 55-75 for 925 yards, 14 touchdowns and no interceptions which were against:

    Holy Cross in Covington (a Class “A” school who is 1-8 this season).

    Grant County (who is 1-8 this year); and

    Scott High School who is 7-2 this season

    Why are the coaches not recruiting a second QB out of the class of 2014. Why all eggs in one basket. Has anyone been follow the UK QB situation this season. Will you please ask them why?

  13. tltaworl

    13, i am not sure who’s point you are trying to prove.

  14. tltaworl

    The Army disrespected him, his number is 7

    Thomas just spews negativity on every single post. Kentucky high school football is what it is… Sometimes that means players are overrated… but sometimes it doesnt. Why be negative and assume he is only highly rated because he plays in Kentucky? He was held out of all 3 of those games in the 2nd half… so those stats are pretty impressive considering he never played past halftime in any of those games.

    Please, please, please just go root for another program. Fans like you are worthless. Was he supposed to put up crappy numbers because the competition was bad just to be nice?

  16. Wondering

    What class is Conner high?

    Dude likes stiff arms! Uses them nicely on high school players. Hope they don’t plan on running him quite as much as he obviously does in High School.
