2020 Mr. Football Watchlist (10/6)

Recommended Posts

A running back dominated field highlights this week's watchlist. Pond Creek's show-stopping Pirate and Olive Hill's dazzling Comet continue to wow spectators, and a trio of 6A super backs set fire to scoreboards in Louisville, Owensboro, and Brandenburg. Meanwhile, what was already a thin crop of quarterbacks continues to dwindle. 


Hunter Bradley (RB), McCracken County

Season to date: 70 carries for 717 yards and 10 TDs/121 receiving yards and a touchdown 

Week 4: McCracken rolled over Daviess County, 56-22, with Bradley serving as the driving force for the Mustangs. His yardage total (331) and touchdowns (5) would easily be a career high for most, but they both fall short of his production versus Apollo last year. A colossal Mr. Football resume building opportunity awaits this week against a stout Bowling Green defense.

Jaylin Bross (RB) Male

Season to date: 31 carries for 273 yards and 7 touchdowns

Highlights: http://www.hudl.com/v/2EL9dd

Week 4: Bross continued his journey back to Mr. Football relevancy with a 115 yard, five touchdown performance against Pleasure Ridge Park. His five scores represent a career high. A huge output against Southern won't move the needle much, but it should allow him to continue trending his numbers back in the right direction.

Leetavious Cline (RB/DB), West Carter

Season to date: 71 carries for 851 yards and 15 touchdowns

Highlights: http://www.hudl.com/v/2EExv1

Week 4: Cline's chances of winning the award might be very slim, and the level of competition he faces on a weekly basis is sorely lacking, but his production can't be ignored. He recorded his second straight five touchdown game last Friday and topped 250 rushing yards for the second time in three games. Cline has done a lot of the heavy lifting in getting West Carter to #6 in Class 2A. Halley's comet only comes around once every 75 years, but unfortunately for West Carter's opponents, their comet has appeared every week this season.

Isaac Dixon (RB/DB), Belfry

Season to date: 43 carries for 879 yards and 12 touchdowns/114 receiving yards and two touchdowns 

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

Week 4: Dixon broke tackles and ankles alike in Belfry's thirty point romp of Floyd Central. He gashed the Jaguars for 251 yards and four touchdowns on just eight carries. That gives him nearly 500 rushing yards and nine scores on sixteen carries over the last two weeks. As @ATLCat informed us yesterday, Dixon is averaging a staggering 21.6 yards per offensive touch. Those numbers resemble that of a video game simulation, rather than real life. His talents will face their stiffest test yet, when a stacked North Hardin defense pays Belfry a visit this week.

Cam Hergott (QB), Beechwood

Season to date: 68/90 for 915 yards and 3 TDs/3 ints. - 289 rushing yards and four touchdowns 

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

Week 4: Hergott had a hand (and a leg or two) in 307 of Beechwood's 310 total yards against Dixie Heights. He was unable to help the Tigers' run defense, as the Red Colonels ran for nearly 300 yards to upend 2A's #3 team. Beechwood dives into district play this week, where big numbers and blowout wins surely await.

Keontae Pittman (RB), Ashland

Season to date: 26 carries for 256 yards and six touchdowns

Week 4: Pittman dashed for 145 yards and four touchdowns as the Tomcats demolished Raceland. He has some ground to make up on the rest of the field after Ashland sat for Weeks 1 and 2, but goodness knows he has the speed to catch up. Aside from the breakaway ability he's known for, Pittman seems to have added toughness and physicality to his list of attributes this season.

Dylan Preston (RB/LB), Johnson Central

Season to date: 36 carries for 408 yards and eight touchdowns/ one receiving touchdown

Week 4: How's this for a night's work: Preston only carried the ball four times, but averaged 28 yards per rush and only one of those touches failed to reach the endzone. Clay County never stood a chance. Games like this should be commonplace throughout JC's district schedule in the coming weeks.

Kaiya Sheron (QB), Somerset

Season to date: 48/78 for 903 yards and 9 TDs/1 int. - 205 rushing yards and four touchdowns

Week 4: The Jumpers were plagued by another slow start before eventually pulling away from Hazard, 42-13. Sheron was without his go-to guy, Kade Grundy, but got others involved on 15/24 passing for 233 yards and a pair of scores. He added a third touchdown with his legs. A crucial two game district run against Danville and LCA is just around the corner. Sheron's Mr. Football candidacy and Somerset's claim to #1 in 2A will be tested.

Lavell Wright (RB), North Hardin

Season to date: 77 carries for 486 yards and 8 touchdowns/13 catches for 140 yards

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

Week 4: Wright continued imposing his will on would-be tacklers last week. Meade County did an admirable job of keeping him contained and not allowing him to find daylight, but when he carried the football, the Green Wave felt it. North Hardin methodically blew out Meade 37-0 behind Wright's 120 rushing yards and four touchdowns. The Mr. Football spotlight will be aimed at Belfry this week, with Wright and Dixon set to share the field. 

Noteworthy performances from Week 4:

Clint McKee (RB), Graves County: 174 rushing yards and six touchdowns against Ohio County

Wes Oliver (RB), Taylor County: 243 rushing yards and three touchdowns against Hart County

Cole Wallace (RB), Rowan County: 207 rushing yards and three touchdowns against Holmes

Joe Lucas (QB), Collins: 235 yards passing and five touchdowns against Anderson County

Huge statement opportunities for Isaac Dixon and Hunter Bradley tonight. Those two have more to gain tonight than any other contenders, facing two of the state's premier defenses.
