Trevor DeLacey is a ’25, dual threat who may make a run at some “Mr. Football” lists. He certainly will be a strong candidate to make our end of the season, Big School, All-State Football Team News Radio 840 WHAS and we throw together at season’s end.

DeLacey is a 6’2,” 170-pounder with a varied, athletic skill-set, recommending itself to plenty of sports besides football. DeLacey is on the varsity baseball team where he plays 3B, pitches, and is an outfielder. 

DeLacey’s most impressive number is his 4.5 weighted GPA “acing” Owensboro’s Senior High School’s rigorous academic curriculum. A number like that, coupled with his athleticism, means it is a near certainty some school will be footing DeLacey’s college expenses at the end of his HS career.

DeLacey has a tremendous junior season, as the linked highlights up above certainly memorialize. DeLacey completed 165 of his 249 passing attempts for 2,165-yards and 22-TDs. His completion percentage was 65.3% and he gained another 458-yards on 61-carries for a yards per carry of roughly 7.5.

DeLacey is a prospect who can play lots of places, next level…

DeLacey was among the team’s leaders in scoring which is not easy for a QB. A QB’s touchdown passes get credited, point wise, to the WRs.

QB Hit List is very high on DeLacey and they have been around the game awhile and probably in good position to judge such a thing. They like Delaney’s size and credits his working fluidly from the pocket.

The publication credits his accuracy, touts his arm strength, and makes specific reference regarding his “release.” QB Hit List tells us DeLacey throws well on the run, has excellent footwork, is very poised, and has a good sense for the traffic in the backfield making him able to clear space and make throws under pressure. We call this phenomenon, “Pocket Presence.”

DeLacey, again according to QB Hit List (we agree) makes good decisions with the football and shows the ability to slow things down and create a soft delivery between zone coverages. In other words, and cutting to the chase, he is a skilled operator.

We thought DeLacey’s picks were a bit high (12) a season ago but that wasn’t all his fault. Interceptions aside, the team made its fourth (4th) straight, 5A semis; finishing 9-5 while winning eight of its last 10 after getting out of the starting gate losing three (3) of the first four (4).

Congratulations to Trevor “TD” DeLacey for his Revolutionary Play during the ’23 season and that which is sure to come in ’24 all of which have earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, your friends at Independence Bank.
