The duns over at the IndyStar have said that the Mr. Football Award will be announced on IndyStar.com on Wednesday. They’ve narrowed the race down to three cats. Cathedral’s offensive lineman Emil Ekiyor, Lowell’s defensive back Justin Jusevitch and Ben Davis’ quarterback Reese Taylor.
Now I want everybody that thinks that this foolishness is even a race to stand on their heads and spin around ten times. The fact that they are even tryin’ to put two other players on the stage to make it seem like it’s a race is insulting. Granted, the other two ball players are great players and athletes but Reese Taylor is on an entirely different planet than everyone else. It’s Reese Taylor and then there’s Indiana High School Football.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! The dun put up video game-type numbers all season leadin’ the No.1 Ben Davis Giants to the Class 6A title without it EVER bein’ close!!! Did I mention that they went start to finished ranked No.1 and then finished the season ranked No.5 in the COUNTRY behind his leadership? If I didn’t I just did playa.
Ole boy put up 3,150 yards in the air and threw 40 touchdowns!! He ran for another 802 yards and 15 more touchdowns! Wheredeydodatat? On a darn video game.
So no disrespect to Ekiyor or Jusevitch but Reese Taylor was in a class all by himself in 2017. To even say that there are finalists is to say that you haven’t watched this kid play. To say that there are finalists is to discount the fact that he put up all of those numbers against the best teams in the state EVERY week.
It wasn’t like he was playin’ in Class A or against the Little Sisters of the Poor or Cup Cake City teams. He was playin’ in the M.I.C. bruh!!! All season the M.I.C. had 5 of the Top 10 teams in the state. So he was showin’ out against the best of the best.
Bruh…he went 18 of 22 for 340 yards and 6 touchdowns in the air and rushed for another 131 yards and two more touchdowns in the state championship game like Penn wasn’t even there. Well…they weren’t there but you get what I’m tryin’ to say. He was drivin’ the Big Body Chevy through the hood blastin’ Penn 63-14.
Reese Taylor made playin’ high school football against the best teams in the state look easy and you wanna tell me that there are finalists? C’mon bruh..just drive the trophy over to that man’s house and be done with it so we can move on and you can stop me when I start lyin’!

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
