Best players not to win Mr. Football

Page 2 of I think Vic Anderson has shown he would have been a tremendous Mr. Football. He and Beaumont were a close race! Advertisement Last edited by Ram; Jul 3... 125 comments | 7575 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Marty will go down as one of the toughest kids I ever watched play.
    Jason Ledger and Ben Revere are two more to add.

    Scotty Robinson at Rockcastle played in the shadows of Mark Higgs in 1983. This was before Rockcastle became the powerhouse they are today. I also agree with Walter Browning.

    I have to agree with most on this one seems as tho all are good ones for Mr Football,Marty Regan and Justin Haddix in 2002 was going up against maybe best all around athlete in History of Kentucky Football Mike Bush of L'ville Male so how can anyone not like the pick of Mike Bush for Mr Football.......

    Donnie Redd from Danville in 1989. He lost to a talented Pookie Jones who Quarterbacked some good but not great teams.

    Redd was one of the state's top backs for 3 years making All-State 1987, 88, 89. He moved to QB his senior year so Harp could get more speed in the backfield and Redd did a pretty good job running from that new position. He led Danville to state titles in '87 and '89.

    I never understood how he fell short in the voting that year.

    The only other one I might mention from my area is Brandon Smith. He lost the 2004 Mr. Football to Curtis Pulley. Pulley was awesome and deserving. I too thought Smith was just as deserving with all of his passing yards, running ability, and success on the field (2 titles and 1 runner-up). I know that head to head matchups maybe shouldn't be factored but Brandon did lead the Rebels to 2 victories in as many matchups over Pulley and Hopkinsville.

    I know we're talking about the past but what about this year? Who deserves a shot from the small schools or any for that matter but usually don't get the credit? For one Adam Dials 2 games over 600 yards rushing, 11 TD's!!!

    Just looking at Bell County Shawn Robbins was an awfully good player. He ran all over that great Highlands defense his senior year. But he also had 2 fumbles in the game. He was a great football player though.

    I expected the Rocky Mountains to be a little rockier than this.

    Justin Haddix may have had the best stats of all time to have never won Mr. Football, and may have had better stats than some that did (4,300 yds. passing, 58 TD's-7 ints, 1,200 yds rushing 21 tds, and probably had 8-10 ints. as a safety on defense ). But pound for pound, Derek Smith was probably the best to not win it. He was an absolute beast on the football field. I remember seeing him at UK's passing camp one year and thinking he looked older than my dad. BTW, is he the only player to be runner up in Mr. Football and Mr. Basketball?

    Miguel Merritt of Hopkinsville was outstanding in '95 and became a starting LB for Alabama. But it was was a tall task to beat out Tim Couch even though Merritts team beat Couch's team 60 something to 0.
