Trinity receiver Rondale Moore has won the 2017 Paul Hornung Award given to the state’s top high school football player by the Louisville Quarterback Club.

He’ll receive his award Dec. 14th at Big Spring Country Club in Louisville.

“When you are the best player on a two-time, undefeated state championship team that is ranked No. 10 in USA Today’s Top 25 poll, the spotlight is always on you and Rondale Moore delivered,” said Gordon Crawford, Louisville Quarterback Club president.

“Rondale put  up Heisman (Trophy) numbers both last season and this season.”

He certainly made his presence felt in the Class 6A state title game when Trinity beat St. Xavier 38-21. He had 238 total yards and three touchdowns. Moore ran for 174 yards on 19 carries and caught five passes for 114 yards. He had a 93-yard scoring run and a 62-yard touchdown catch.

He finished the second with a school record 104 catches for 1,461 yards and 16 touchdowns.

The 5-8, 174-pound Moore has been timed in 4.3 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

He is verbally committed to the University of Texas and will participate in the U.S. Army All-American Games next month.

He joins former Trinity players Brian Brohm, Sam Robey and James Quick as Hornung winners.

Last year’s winner was Lafayette quarterback Walker Wood.

  1. A great RB leaves the Commonwealth, and UK, and commits to Texas, Hummmm. At least Louisville didn’t get him.

    1. I have read from two sources that UK’s current 2018 football recruiting class (football commits) is ranked 29th in the nation, and 10th in the SEC. Fair, I guess, but not near good enough to compete in the conference they compete in. There are only three 4* recruits among them. UK needs to pick it up in the closing days before the Dec. early signing date IMO.

  2. I hate to see this but if UK gets thumped in the bowl game, I look for some good recruits to change their minds and some players to leave the team. Seems to be a lot of problems on this team.
