Future UK quarterback Drew Barker makes history

Drew Barker

Drew Barker and his Conner High School Cougars traveled to South Oldham Friday night and the two schools went toe-to-toe in a quarterback battle with a final score of 34-32 in favor of the Dragons

Barker threw for 270 yards and a pair of touchdowns, and ran for 138 yards a score, but was picked off twice in the loss. However, his effort made history as he became just the third player in the history of Kentucky high school football with 40 passing touchdowns and 40 rushing touchdowns in his career.

The other players are Western Kentucky running back Antonio Andrews who finished his career at Fort Campbell with 56 rushing touchdowns and 50 passing touchdowns, and Travis Atwell, “Mr. Football” in 1999 when he passed for 34 touchdowns and ran for 38 touchdowns to add to his career total in his senior season at Hancock County High School.

Barker currently has 48 rushing touchdowns versus 40 passing touchdowns. With five games left on the regular season schedule, it is realistic to think he could reach the 50/50 club before the season ends.

    Did UK recruit Andrews ? If not, why not? If so, what factor led him to choose WKU?

    I really hope he is a stud at the college level. Our current crop of quarterbacks just don’t inspire a lot of confidence in the future

    he isnt even the best quarterback in northern ky. brennan kuntz at simon kenton is the best. i have watched them both play severaltimes. drew may be a better prospect, but RIGHT NOW, kuntz is a better player

    Stuart,

    I was a UK journalism major. You have an opportunity that many of us would have loved to have had. But, when you write a non-sense article with unclear facts, you do two things….1) make everyone on this site avoid your articles 2) hurt your future job prospects. Smarten up.

    Sincerely,
    Facts

    #15 it’s ok we believe that your son, or brother or some inbred version of both, is the best QB in KY. No doubt. Get real that kid couldn’t hold barkers jock strap.

    17.haha you are a dumbass. if you knew ANYTHING about high school football you would know the kid already has division 1 offers. that kid totally outplayed barker in head to head competition 2 weeks ago. i dont know the kid, dont know his family, im just stating FACTS.

    I wasn’t so impressed with Drew…at least not against South. The sack he took was brutal, the 2 interceptions he threw were taken by South’s quarterback who was filling in for an injured player. His attitude on the field was awful as well.
