Patrick Towles named Mr. Football

Cheesin

Patrick Towles has had a pretty good senior season. He won both the Paul Hornung and Gatorade Player of the Year Award for the state of Kentucky, he capped off an undefeated season with a state championship win over Franklin-Simpson in Bowling Green and now he has been named Kentucky’s Mr. Football by The Associated Press. Towles is the eleventh Mr. Football winner to go to UK and the first since Micah Johnson in 2005. He joins fellow Highlands Bluebird and former Kentucky quarterback, Jared Lorenzen, as the award’s recipient.

In fifteen games this season, Towles threw for 3,820 yards and 42 touchdowns while adding 589 yards and 15 touchdowns on the ground. If those numbers aren’t ridiculous enough for you, he also only threw one interception on the year. Towles has started for the Bluebirds since his sophomore season and has only lost one game as the starting quarterback.

Patrick was quoted after the state championship game saying that he is still 150 percent committed to the Cats and if he could write his name in stone then he would. You have to love that.

Towles received nine of the votes from the 15 member panel. Others receiving votes were Central’s Anthony Wales (three votes), Trinity’s James Quick (two votes) and Johnson Central’s J.J. Jude (one vote).

    What’s the problem with Memphis basketball? Their school colors are blue and gray, but yet they are wearing uniforms that make them look like the Harlem Globetrotters. They should fire Pastner right now. He obviously doesn’t respect tradition.

    Towles won’t get those stats at UK in four years. I predict he will get worse year after year if Joker is still the coach.

    #5 – don’t know if what you said will happen… BUT, if there is a coach that can turn a 4* player into a no-body, its Joker. (See Moss and Newton)

    If Towles and Smith can stay healthy UK should be in good shape at QB for the next few years.
