Sindelar named 2014 Mr. Football


Caldwell County High School had claimed just about every football

award imaginable in its history, except one ... until now!

Tiger quarterback Elijah Sindelar has capped his storied high school

career at CCHS by being named the 2014 Kentucky Mr. Football.

The Associated Press confi rmed to The Times Leader on Friday afternoon

that Sindelar had won its Player of the

AP’s all-state football team is not scheduled

for statewide release until this (Saturday)


“I think that’s a big honor for our school

and our community,” said Caldwell football

coach David Barnes, who was also notifi ed of

the award on Friday. “I think what Elijah has

done for our football program speaks volumes

about what kind of player he is and what kind

of kid he is. He is very deserving of the Mr.

Football award.”

Sindelar was chosen over six other fi nalists

for the award. In addition to his sterling play on the gridiron, the publicity

he has received over his four years at Caldwell helped earn him enough

votes from media statewide to win the award.

“They say it’s hard for a kid from western Kentucky to win the award,

but there have been several,” noted Barnes. “Corey Robinson at Lone Oak,

Pookie Jones at Calloway and the two at Fort Campbell, Antonio Andrews

and Micah Johnson, are just some of them.”

Sindelar got national publicity in his very fi rst start as a freshman when

he threw for 552 yards and six touchdowns in Caldwell’s 80-62 shootout

win at Calloway County.

A lengthy recruiting battle between Kentucky and Purdue furthered his

lore among many football followers in this state.

“I think that game he had his sophomore season in the state championship
