Congrats to Drew Barker and Matt Elam, who were named finalists for Kentucky’s Mr. Football award, along with Scott County’s Scott Daniel and Bowling Green’s Nacarius Fant.
By now, you know all about Barker, who will enroll early at UK and wrote about his senior season for KSR. He finished the year with 2,702 yards and 34 touchdowns passing, and 849 yards and nine touchdowns rushing. Over his high school career, he threw 6,264 yards and 62 touchdowns, and 3,931 yards and 51 touchdowns rushing. He was recently named 5A player of the year by the Kentucky Football Coaches Association.
Elam, Kentucky’s top remaining target in the 2014 class, is down to the Cats and Alabama. He won the Paul Hornung Award as the outstanding senior player in Kentucky. We’ll finally find out his decision on January 4th at the Army All-American Bowl.
The winner will be announced next week.
