    Article from the Herald-Leader:

    ‘Speechless.’ Small-school standout wins the 217 Kentucky Mr. Football award | Lexington Herald Leader

    Eleven football teams at Danville High School have won state titles, but it was the most recent titlist that achieved something no other before it did in the program’s 106 years of existence.

    D’Mauriae VanCleave, a 5-foot-7 athlete who played multiple positions in his four-year career with the Admirals, was named the 2017 Mr. Football winner by the Associated Press on Thursday.

    He became the first Danville player to win the award — considered the highest individual honor in the state — and the third player from the city of Danville to take home the honor; Boyle County’s Jeff Duggins and Lamar Dawson won in 2001 and 2010, respectively.

    VanCleave is the 32nd recipient of the award, which was first issued to Frank Jacobs (Newport Central Catholic) in 1986. He became the award’s fifth winner to hail from central Kentucky, joining Dawson, Duggins, Jeremy Simpson (Lincoln County, 1993) and Dennis Johnson (Harrodsburg, 1997). In December he was named to the Herald-Leader’s Class of the Commonwealth team and to the Louisville Courier-Journal’s All-State team.

    Watching him run on film is like watching film of Babe Ruth hitting a home run and trotting the bases. It is just an unnatural fast, like he has speed cheat code or something.
