    Or the NEKY or EKY boys either.

    Landan Swartz of Bath County averages over 200 YPG rushing in back to back seasons, sets the school career rushing record (and pretty sure scoring record as well), wins both district and EKC player of the year, and doesn't even make honorable mention?! Congratulations to the players on the list but this one deserved to be on there as well.

    Same old story year in and year out. Really should just call it the All-Lex/Lou team.

    These teams have their share of Louisville/Lex guys, but there are several WKY, SCKY, EKY (or what's considered the mountains) on these rosters. Full of them actually.

    I agree time to have a NKY all star team play a Lex or Louisville all star team see who wins!

    Some head-scratchers, especially at honorable mention QBs... I've seen 3-4 of them play and they are no where near Owensboro Catholic's Drew Hartz or Owensboro's Will Warren.

    There are only a handful of "Lex/Lou" players on the first or second team.

    Half of the first team offense and defense are from metro Louisville and metro Lexington. I'm counting Scott County and West Jess, which I think both would be considered by a majority as the Lexington area.

    I'm fine with the team, but I wouldn't call half of the first team a "handful".

    Everyone knows that some of the ‘best’ football is played in the Lexington area.

    Five on defense, not six.

    Yeah, yeah it may not be the best football but there are plenty of talented athletes and this is not a team award.
