A really good article about Morgan Newton, the 2009 UK highly-ranked quarterback. Recommended reading. Here is a taste:
"During the 2008 season, Newton again brought his "A" game, leading Carmel to a 13-2 record and a runner-up appearance in the state championship game. Against six of Indiana's top programs -- Cathedral, Warren Central, Ben Davis, Fort Wayne Snider, Penn and Center Grove (two games) -- Newton averaged 280 yards and 2.9 touchdowns (running and passing). On the season, Newton threw for 1,938 yards and 22 touchdowns and rushed for 1,664 yards and 26 touchdowns."
It seems Morgan Newton is not only a star football player, but can also play that other game ... you know, the one with the round ball that we love so well around these parts.
Good enough to be an Indiana All-Star? Yikes. You go, Morgan.
If this happens, look out. It will announce Kentucky's arrival as a serious football program.
We have years before we are ready to compete for a championship, but with Newton and Mossakowski both, our quarterback situation would be as good as it could be.
