AP Mr. Football - Over The Years

Thomas was a machine. 1990 was a two-man race between him and Damon Hood. Thomas was one of three RBs on th0 '90 state championship Ashland team with 1000+ yards on the season. He finished with 1632 yards for 23 TDs, and 53 tackles, 7 sacks, 9 forced fumbles and 3 fumble recoveries. Went to ASU, and then opted out of college football when the White Sox drafted him into their farm league. Didn't end up going anywhere in baseball.

Thomas didn’t start the season at RB. He was DE -TE. He was shifted to the RB spot for the Ironton game due to injury sickness. After the Game Legendary Coach Lutz told Vic Marsh, you keep him at RB you win the State Title. He did the rest is History.

I would have to say Shaun Alexander is the greatest of all time to earn the title of Mr Football in Ky. 
 

I know we aren’t talking about this category but my gosh, Alabama great and NFL great to boot. 

Who else am I missing? 
 

Mayer could be the next Nky great to star at a top 5 college program and move on to an NFL career. 
 

I just find it so mind boggling to comprehend how hard it is to excel at both the Big college programs and then the NFL.

Crazy to think that Mayer (who I believe will get drafted at some point) or Wan'Dale Robinson could end a 15/16-year drought where Kentucky Mr. Football did not get drafted after college.

Crazy to think Brian Brohm was the last Mr. Football drafted.

I believe the biggest reason for that drought is that the bulk of professional caliber players coming from the state of Kentucky are lineman and similar to the Heisman winner in college, Mr. Kentucky Football is very much a skill position award and almost exclusively and offensive award. I wonder when the last time an OL was seriously considered for the award.

I believe Trinity has the most finalists, to date, at 12 total. Danville has second most at 9 total. Then Boyle County and Cov Cath both have had 8.

Too bad Augusta National has trademarked Jim Nantz's, "A Tradition Unlike Any Other" for The Masters. The Kentucky AP membership missed out on a viable revenue stream. 🙄

At this point I don't think it is much beyond work for the AP.

And we still got beat in the KY/TN Allstar game and that was with Mike Yeagle coaching the team. Additionally, Travis Prentice was on that team if my memory serves me correct.

Yes he was! That was a great game.  I will never forget when Tim Couch’s favorite target at Lesile County went over the middle for a pass when Mr Al Wilson hit him so hard he crawled to the sideline. I wish I could remember his name.

Curtis Pulley was a good one.

I think you are right. I think they called him “Baker the Touchdown Maker”
