With only two more weeks left in the regular season of high school football UK commit Drew Barker has little time to dominate the landscape of Northern Kentucky. As a result Mr. Barker has decided to become a statistical juggernaut and make every other team look foolish. From the Herald Leader’s football roundup:
No. 23 Conner 53, Grant Co. 6: University of Kentucky Class of 2014 commit Drew Barker threw four TDs and rushed for two more for the Cougars (6-2) in the blowout.
Barker’s runs came at the end of Conner’s first two drives.
His passing scores came over four of the next five Cougar possessions. Two of those completions went to Jesse McKeehan, and the longest came near the end of the first quarter on a 64-yarder to Michael Postel.
The Braves (1-7) were dwarfed in passing yardage 340-33
All that after throwing for 7 touchdowns last week against Covington Catholic. With Barker showcasing all the tools to be an elite level QB and enrolling in class in just a couple months it is obvious the kid is ready to make an immediate impact. Drew Barker will be breaking college records here soon enough but for now he is stuck crushing the competition around the state. The only question that remains is whether or not they can make another trip to Bowling Green for the KHSAA gridiron bowl. I like their chances.
