Kentucky Wildcats commit Beau Allen has won the Paul Hornung Award, presented by the Louisville Quarterback Club to the state’s best high school football player.
The Lexington Catholic quarterback completed 248 of 366 passes (67.8%) for 3,682 yards and 38 touchdowns with eight interceptions this season. He also led the team in rushing with 478 yards and 12 touchdowns on 127 attempts.
He finished his career with 11,439 passing yards and 127 passing touchdowns.
The Paul Hornung Award is one of four player of the year awards in Kentucky, along with the Gatorade Player of the Year, Associated Press Mr. Football award, and the Kentucky Football Coaches Association Mr. Football award. Those three awards will be announced in the coming weeks.
Allen will receive the Paul Hornung Award during a luncheon set for December 17th at Big Spring Country Club.
Former Kentucky commit and current Nebraska Cornhuskers running back/wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson took home the award last year.
Hopefully, it’s just the start of a slew of awards over Allen’s long career.
