2020 Mr. Football Watchlist (9/15)

Recommended Posts

A couple of names, such as Jaylin Bross and Jantzen Dunn are absent this week because they have yet to play a game. Others, like Jager Burton and Dekel Crowdus will have to work their way back on because of how events unfolded last Friday. There will probably be more movement to this list from week to week than in previous years. 



Nick Broyles (QB), Franklin County

Season to date: 15/18 for 364 yards and 5 TDs/0 ints.

Highlights: http://www.hudl.com/v/2ED8vX

Week 1: The Flyers' aerial circus is already in full swing after Broyles and his gifted right arm torched Anderson County for 364 yards and five touchdowns on 15/18 attempts. Anytime you have more touchdown passes than incompletions, you've had a great night. He has a touchdown to interception ratio of 62/12 since the start of his sophomore season. 


Isaac Dixon (RB/DB), Belfry

Season to date: 14 carries for 194 yards and 2 touchdowns 

Highlights: http://www.hudl.com/v/2EDK3y

Week 1: If Braedon Sloan is the best running back in EKY, Dixon can't be far behind. He doesn't have the numbers to keep pace with the Wayne County star, but ask anyone who's watched him play. Dixon is legit. He carved up Pulaski County's defense for 194 yards and a pair of scores while averaging nearly 14 yards per carry. His fast twitch change of direction and acceleration were on full display on one of his touchdown runs, featured in the link above. It's hard not to salivate over the anticipation of October 9th, when he'll go mano a mano with Lavell Wright. 


Fred Farrier (WR), Franklin County

Season to date: 6 receptions for 172 yards and 2 touchdowns 

Highlights: http://www.hudl.com/v/2EDAZB

Week 1: Nick Broyles' partner in crime makes his watchlist debut on the heels of 172 receiving yards and two touchdowns against Anderson County. The Franklin County duo's watchlist status from week to week is likely intertwined, but Farrier is a tremendous football player, independent of his quarterback. Any team in the state would be fortunate to have him making plays for them.


Cam Hergott (QB), Beechwood

Season to date: 13/22 for 172 yards/132 rushing yards and a touchdown

Highlights: http://www.hudl.com/v/2ED2Tn

Week 1: In one of the more impressive developments of opening weekend, Beechwood ventured south to Corbin and handed the Redhounds a 20-14 setback. Hergott carried the offensive load for the Tigers, accumulating 304 yards of total offense and a rushing touchdown. Something you won't find on a stat sheet, is the leadership qualities it takes to travel a couple of hours away from home in Week 1, with limited prep time, and beat a ranked opponent. It's a quality that Hergott seems to have in spades. He'll need to summon all of his skills and intangibles this week, as CovCath awaits.


Caleb Jacob (QB), Covington Catholic

Season to date: 12/22 for 143 yards and 1 TD/2 ints. - 1 rushing touchdown

Week 1: Last Friday's performance against Dixie Heights was not exactly Jacob's finest hour. He was picked off twice and never really seemed comfortable following his first attempt of the season, which went for six. CovCath's offense fell dormant in the second half, with Jacob unable to light the fuse that's led to so many explosive nights for the Colonels offense over the past two years. CovCath won in the end, but it was ugly, and certainly not the start to his senior season that we envisioned. Jacobs squares off with the player directly above him this week in a duel of watchlist QBs that could drastically alter the perception of both as Mr. Football candidates.


Nathan McElroy (QB), Trinity

Season to date: 14/20 for 143 and 2 TDs/1 rushing TD

Highlights: http://www.hudl.com/v/2ED5wt

Week 1: With McElroy behind center, the Rocks did something that used to be unthinkable: they casually blew out Archbishop Moeller. Trinity was so much better than the Crusaders that McElroy needed to do little more than show up. Unfortunately for Moeller, he did show up, and tossed a pair of touchdown passes while also flashing a little speed on a scoring scramble. Stage 1 of the "Big Three" Louisville round robin begins this week when T hosts H. The last time McElroy saw Male, he was leading his team past the Bulldogs to a state title.


Dylan Preston (RB/LB), Johnson Central

Season to date: 18 carries for 147 and 4 TDs/1 receiving touchdown

Week 1: Johnson Central travelled to Bell County and took a bite out of Log Mountain, mauling the Bobcats, 36-0. Preston was the main cog in the JC machine, picking up 147 yards rushing and scoring all five of the Golden Eagles' touchdowns (four running/one receiving). Jim Matney has helped produce a number of great backs over the years, and Preston appears to be the latest in that long line.


Kaiya Sheron (QB), Somerset

Season to date: 6/13 for 160 yards and 2 TDs/46 rushing yards and a touchdown

Week 1: The UK commit turned in a relatively easy night of work against Whitley County. Sheron accounted for 206 total yards and three touchdowns with his arm and feet. His connection with WR Kade Grundy is already clicking, which is bad news for everyone on the Jumpers' schedule. They hooked up for 113 yards and a score.


Braedon Sloan (RB), Wayne County

Season to date: 29 carries for 294 yards and 5 touchdowns 

Highlights: http://www.hudl.com/v/2ED32M

Week 1: The final score may have left a bad taste in his mouth, but Sloan reminded everyone in Week 1 that he is on another level, just in case you forgot. His love affair with the endzone that started last year has carried over to 2020 with five touchdowns against Southwestern to go with nearly 300 rushing yards. Sloan went through the Warriors like a hot knife through butter. If you want to see a player personify the term 'inexorable', watch the run at :36 in the hudl link above. 


Lavell Wright (RB), North Hardin

Season to date: 21 carries for 86 yards/4 catches for 39 yards

Week 1: On a field packed with FBS talent on both sides, Lavell Wright's star shone brightest on "The Farm" against Frederick Douglass. Whether he was taking a handoff or catching a last second flip from his QB and shrugging off six Douglass defenders to help set up the game winning field goal, Wright was the best player on the field in the biggest game of Week 1. The numbers alone don't tell the story. If you watched the game, you know what this young man meant to his team.


Noteworthy performances from Week 1:

Kade Grundy (WR), Somerset - 113 yards receiving and a touchdown against Whitley County

Reece Jesse (WR), Hopkinsville - 112 yards receiving and 2 touchdowns against Henderson County

James Johnson (RB/DL), DeSales - 120 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns/2 sacks against LCA

Leetavious Cline (RB/DB), West Carter - 16 carries for 152 yards and 3 touchdowns against East Carter
