Aug 7, 17, 09:34 AM #5Mr. Football winners are shown in red.
Aug 7, 17, 09:41 AM #6A few discussion points to consider...
-Which schools are surprised you with the number of finalists they have produced over time?
-Which schools are you suprised to see with just one or two finalists from...or missing from the list all together?
-Out of 175+ finalists in the last 31 years, there have only been 9 linemen ever considered for the award. Surprised or not surprised?
-Who wasn't a finalist that deserved to be? Why?
-Which finalists do you think should have won but didn't?
-Which finalists did you personally play against? Or see play in person? Any good stories out there?
Aug 7, 17, 09:54 AM #7That 1994 class was loaded for bear. A couple of all-time greats of Ky Prep football at their positions.
Aug 7, 17, 10:06 AM #8Pikeville with 2 finalists in 1988.
Highlands with 2 finalists in 1998.
Highlands with 2 finalists in 2000.
St. X with 2 finalists in 2008.
Highlands with 2 finalists in 2014.
Lafayette with 2 finalists in 2016.
Aug 7, 17, 10:09 AM #9The Purples are 2 for 4 in producing Mr. Football winners when they make the list of finalists.
Aug 7, 17, 10:26 AM #10The 2017 finalists haven't been announced have they?
I know Frakes published his thoughts on a top ten, but nothing official, right?
Aug 7, 17, 10:45 AM #11Jason Frakes definitely said "candidates" and not finalists. I'll go ahead and pull the 2017 names off the list for now.

Aug 7, 17, 11:00 AM #12Some great names over the years....didnt realize both Jeff and Brian Brohm won the award, that is pretty special.

I really thought Donnie Redd and Chester Ford of Danville should have won the award in 1989 and 1991. I know how good Pookie was but Donnie just did it every year of his career and even more so by switching to QB in the Bone his Senior Season.
