Highlands' Matthew Mason to be inducted to NKY Athletic Directors Hall of Fame

Highlands alum, Matthew Mason, will be inducted into the Northern Kentucky High School Athletic Directors Association Hall of Fame.

The induction ceremony will be hosted on November 14 at Receptions.

Highlands Athletic Director, Kevin Nieporte, nominated Mason, a three-sport star, lettering in baseball, football and basketball from 1993-1996. He went on to play baseball at Eastern Kentucky and finished his degree at Northern Kentucky University.

"Matthew is one of our most highly decorated student-athletes during his time and contributed to the success of all three teams. We are proud to call him a graduate," said Nieporte.

While at Highlands, Mason's teams were state runner-up in football in 1995 and won the 9th Region in 1996. He was team's Most Valuable Player, an NKAC All-Star, a three-year tarter for the Bluebirds and team captain.

On the court, he was a three-year letterman, playing for Coach John Messmer.

On the gridiron, Mason was team Most Valuable Player, a Top-24 Selection, a two-year starter and captain while playing for Coach Dale Mueller.

He credits his dad as being his greatest role model. “He was always a great example for me to look up to.”

NKADA President, Tony Bacigalupo said that Mason was one of the best three-sport athletes he'd seen in Northern Kentucky over the last 25 years.

“He is one of the few athletes to achieve at such a high level in three sports,” he said.

Mason and his wife Katie, live in Fort Thomas with their three children. He is the co-founder of BM2 Freight Services Inc. since 2008.
