Four-star Louisville (Ky.) Trinity quarterback Brian Brohm was named Kentucky “Mr. Football” by The Associated Press on Wednesday.
Brohm (6-3, 205, 4.65) received 18 of 23 votes from a statewide panel of sports writers and broadcasters. Five other players each received one vote for the honor.
He’s the second member of his family to win the award, joining brother Jeff, who claimed the title in 1988 before moving on to play for the University of Louisville and a brief career in the NFL.
Jeff Brohm is now a member of the UofL coaching staff and recruiting his brother. Louisville, Kentucky, Tennessee and Notre Dame are the four schools contending for his services.
A member of the Rivals100 Team, Brohm has led Trinity to its second straight Class 4A championship game. The Shamrocks will face arch-rival Louisville St. Xavier on Saturday for the title. As a senior, he has thrown for 3,554 yards and 32 touchdowns. His career numbers are 10,413 yards and 118 touchdowns, second in state history only to Tim Couch.
The other finalists for the Kentucky “Mr. Football” award included: Louisville Seneca quarterback Andy Clark, Corbin running back Jarrod Lawson, Pulaski County quarterback Cole Draughn, Warren Central wide receiver Lonnell Dewalt, Paducah Tilghman running back Joe Casey, Owensboro Catholic running back Craig Lanham, Hazard quarterback Stephen Sizemore, Mason County quarterback Dustin Grutza and Prestonsburg wide receiver Nick Jamerson.
