I believe the award went to the wrong guy. The "winner" can enjoy walking on at UK with Trinity QB while the best player goes to Purdue and makes his mark in the Big Ten.

To me it should have been a 2 way race between aj Mayer and rondale Moore. I would understand either player winning, but I think moore had the advantage. With that said, it seems the powers that be did not want to reward catholic schools for their success. It's kinda obvious. Congrats to VanCleav but it appears politics weighed heavy on the decision

Well deserved and they got it right. I am partial but I have seen very few impact his team the way D’Mauriae did.

Trinity without Moore would have been fine. The Ads without the "Mr. Football for 2017" would have been a totally different team. Everyone saw his importance on offense but he was just good on D. Field position was good bc teams didn't kick to him on special teams.

I thought this is a "career award"? If so, he is a perfect candidate. Kid has been doing it for a long time.

Bohn was a one year starter and Moore isn't even a Kentuckian. The Mayer kid start more than one year?

I thought Mayer was gonna win it but either way this kid was the most explosive player in the state. Threat to score every time he touched the ball.

I think the award went to the right player. Offensively, the kid scored a Touchdown every 6.2 touches!

Van cleave was the most electrifying player I watched play this season. I'm honestly not a huge Danville fan, but the kid was well deserving of the award.

The anti-catholic and anti Louisville stuff is pure garbage and pure excuse. Trinity has 3 Mr.Football winners already. Male has 3. X has at least one and so does Newport Catholic. And Highlands has 2 for good measure to the NKY folk.
I would have voted for Rondale myself but I don't get a vote.

Please review vancleave's stats verses mayer's. It's not close.

Nobody outside 3 countyís in NKY thought Mayer was going to win this.

Rondale Moore was born in Louisville,KY and went to Trinity High school. I believe that makes him a Kentuckian.

Assuming that bizarre assertion is correct, the fact that vancleave won is far more perplexing. If it wasn't aj Mayer....it HAD to be rondale Moore. Conversely, if it wasn't rondale moore...it HAD to be aj Mayer. But as it stands, apparently the voters chose to voice their disdain for catholic school football programs.

Facts are optional I see. Trinity has 3 mr footballs. X had at least 1. Newport Catholic has 1.

Being the best player on the best team does not mean someone is a shoe in for Mr football. Cov cath and Trinity both win a title without Moore and Mayer. The same is not true for vancleave and Danville.

Funny because st x and Trinity generally have the best players year in and year out. Glad they couldn't deny obvious standouts like brohm, finch, and quick. Mr Moore was not so lucky I guess. Did everyone watch Rondale Moore play?....or are we just rooting for the underdog? Also can someone provide the criteria used to select a recipient?

I love the whole catholic school vs the world mind set you fellas have😂 if you seen van cleave play than itís hard to argue against him... the thought process that the voters are biased is a crazy excuse lol how about they thought van cleave deserved it more.

Van Cleave was in the discussion all year long outside of the two areas you mentioned.
