Congratulations to Kash Daniel, who was named Gatorade Kentucky Player of the Year this morning. After bursting onto the recruiting scene this summer, the future Cat pretty much did it all for Painstville in his senior season. Kash tallied 88 solo tackles, 65 assisted tackles and four fumble recoveries this year, leading the Tigers to a 13-1 record and the Class 1A semifinals.
On offense, Daniel completed 73-of-123 passes for 1,319 yards and 15 touchdowns, adding 926 rushing yards and 22 touchdowns on 117 carries. Kash has also been chosen to play in the 2016 U.S. Army All-American Bowl on January 9.
Despite UK’s slide, Kash is still #AllIn, hosting Mark Stoops and DJ Eliot earlier this week:

Kash did a lot of great things this season, but this pregame speech and postgame interview are still tops for me:
