2020 Mr. Football Watchlist (11/3)

Recommended Posts

A Tiger devours his prey in a clash of NKY blue bloods. The Pirate ship is sunk by a 21 gun salute from JC, but Belfry's star leaves his mark. E'town's field general keeps an 0 in the loss and turnover columns. And the "Wayne County Wonder" has a field day after a fortnight off.


Leetavious Cline (RB/DB), West Carter

Season to date: 149 carries for 1,403 yards and 21 touchdowns - 37 tackles/1 pick-six

Week 8: He didn't find the daylight against Russell that presented itself in abundance in prior weeks, but Cline put together a terrific all-around performance in West Carter's history making win over the Red Devils. He picked up 107 tough yards on 17 carries, recorded a team high 16 tackles on defense, and opened the scoring for the Comets with a first half pick-six.


Isaac Dixon (RB/DB), Belfry

Season to date: 93 carries for 1,290 yards and 19 touchdowns/114 receiving yards and two touchdowns 

Week 8: Dixon was bottled up most of the night against Johnson Central, but all it takes is the slightest crease for the Belfry star to make magic happen. He used raw speed to quickly erase an angle by JC defenders on a 64 yard touchdown run, and it appeared JC had him fenced in for no gain on another eventual trip to paydirt, before a stiff arm and spin move drastically changed the scenery. All together, he totalled 121 yards and a pair of scores on 12 carries. For all intents and purposes, Dixon was the Belfry offense last week.


Clay Games (QB), Elizabethtown

Season to date: 89/141 for 1,401 yards and 20 TDs/0 ints.

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

Week 8: The pace was fast and furious on E'town's home turf against North Bullitt. Games took to the air 28 times, connecting on 18 of those attempts for 259 yards and two scoring tosses, as the Panthers held off the Eagles, 55-41. He's not the flashiest quarterback, but he's the trigger man for an offense averaging 45 points per game while keeping a clean sheet this season with zero interceptions. Games has been smart with the football his entire career, with just eleven picks in the last three years against 61 touchdown passes.


Jagger Gillis (QB), Boyle County

Season to date: 66/101 for 1,124 yards and 18 TDs/1 int. - 206 rushing yards/8 TDs

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

Week 8: Gillis has been just as impressive as the quarterback above him this season. He's piloted the state's #2 scoring offense through a sturdy schedule while throwing just one interception. Against a solid Madison Southern side, he completed 10 of 15 balls for 187 yards and four scores, and added another 43 yards on the ground as Boyle County ripped the Eagles, 53-7.


Cam Hergott (QB), Beechwood

Season to date: 114/152 for 1,702 yards and 16 TDs/3 ints. - 512 rushing yards and seven touchdowns 

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

Week 8: Hergott's Mr. Football campaign took another step forward last week. He dissected Newport Central Catholic's secondary like a master surgeon on a perfect 14 of 14 passing and three touchdowns. He added 68 yards and another score with his legs to lead the Tigers over the 'Breds in commanding fashion, 45-0.


Nathan McElroy (QB), Trinity

Season to date: 70/104 for 844 yards and 10 TDs/2 ints.

Highlights: http://www.hudl.com/v/2EWZS7

Week 8: From an aesthetic standpoint, it was fun seeing Bowling Green back on Trinity's schedule, but what occurred between the white lines was really only fun for the Shamrocks. McElroy played a central role in making BG's night a long one, completing 23 of 31 passes for 257 yards and four touchdowns, all to receiver Jack Mitchell.


Dylan Preston (RB/LB), Johnson Central

Season to date: 84 carries for 1,118 yards and 21 touchdowns/3 receiving touchdowns/6.5 sacks

Week 8: Johnson Central fans had something to crow about on multiple fronts last Friday night. The Golden Eagles  decisively won the battle against Belfry, and Preston edged Isaac Dixon in a head to head showdown of watchlist running backs. JC's ground and pound offense controlled the game, with Preston rushing for 191 yards and three scores on 29 rushes, by far the heaviest workload of his career so far. 


Braedon Sloan (RB), Wayne County

Season to date: 105 carries for 1,184 yards and 20 touchdowns

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

Week 8: Sloan returned to the field with a vengeance against North Laurel after missing the previous two weeks. He slithered and slashed his way to 243 yards and five touchdowns on 16 carries, leaving a trail of would-be tacklers in his wake. He's likely going to fall well short of his 2019 production, but he's been a showstopper this year when he's had the chance to play.


Noteworthy performances from Week 8:

Brandt Babin (ATH), Christian Academy of Louisville: 191 rushing yards and three touchdowns, plus five tackles and a sack against Bullitt Central

Cole Durbin (RB), North Bullitt: 229 rushing yards and two touchdowns against Elizabethtown

Reggie Thomas (ATH), Campbellsville: 133 rushing yards and two touchdowns plus two interceptions, including a pick-six, against Washington County

Cameron Hergott = Picture of Efficiency

Dylan Preston= Picture of Production

Braedon Sloan= Picture of a One Man Wrecking Crew.

Isaac Dixon= Picture of Making Small Things Into Big Things.


IMHO, these are your four best Mr. Football candidates by the definition of the position.

With that said, I would be shocked if they win over names like Sheron and Wright who have the Power 5 recognition behind their names.
