Highlands Leads Northern Kentucky for Mr. Football Finalists

Derek Smith (1998) was a finalist for Kentucky Mr. Football. 
The Kentucky Mr. Football Award is an honor given to the top high school football player in the state of Kentucky and in the KHSAA. Awarded by a panel of sports writers and broadcasters from around the state's Associated Press, many past winners have proceeded to have successful college careers and even play in the National Football League.

Since the award was first given in 1986, Highlands High School has had the second most finalists among all schools. They have had two winners, Jared Lorenzen (1998) and Patrick Towles (2011).
