Over the weekend, Highlands played Dixie Heights in the battle of two of the nation’s top quarterbacks. Highlands’ Patrick Towles and Dixie Heights’ Zeke Pike went head-to-head on the gridiron for bragging rights in the state. Pike, an Auburn commit, is a Top-5 quarterback in 2012, according to both Scout.com and Rivals. Towles, a UK commit, is ranked No. 41 and No. 23 on those sites. I think it’s time to reevaluate the rankings.
It only took one half for the future Wildcat to show who’s the best prospect in the state. Patrick Towles threw for 373 yards and three touchdowns…in the first half. Towles added 34 more passing yards and two rushing scores in the second half, leading Highlands to a 63-13 over Dixie Heights. He sat the bench for most of the final two quarters. Pike completed 13-of-25 passes for 109 yards and two interceptions in the loss.
The future looks bright for Kentucky at the quarterback position. Get excited about this one, folks.
