Last week I took nominations for who my Twitter followers and anybody else thought should be Kentucky’s Mr. Football. There was more than two dozen nominees. But it came down to six players.
The six players nominated were (in alphabetical order) Drew Barker, Scott Daniel, Nacarius Fant, Devin Hayes, Drew Houliston, and Lawson Page.
I have to add, this obviously isn’t the real Kentucky Mr. Football and I have no official trophy to give to anybody. Each of these young men had outstanding seasons and they all deserve recognition for the being great student athletes.
But the voters spoke and they picked Collins quarterback Lawson Page as 2013 Kentucky Mr. Football.
“I think it’s a huge honor, considering how great the other nominees are,” Page said when told about his win. “Thank you guys very much. I really appreciate it and it’s a blessing.”
Page and his Collins Titans defeated Owensboro today on the way to their second straight 4A Championship game.
“This season has been amazing. I’m blessed to have such a great group of guys to play with and such a great coaching staff.
“It’s awesome to be back in this situation. We are just taking it day-by-day reaching for our goal. That is to win state,” he finished
Page, who has thrown for 2872 yards and 34 touchdowns through 13 games, has been hearing from Eastern Kentucky, Morehead, Murray State, Lindsey Wilson and Campbellsville.
