Tyler Kautzman is a 5’7,” 200-pound linebacker who contributed offensively and defensively last season and who also is a varsity baseball player for his Webster County Trojans. The Trojans are a 3A, District 1, team on the rise which Coach Edward Mill took to the playoffs a year ago and with whom he won six games. Kautzman can play running back, and that should give you an idea about his athleticism and speed, as he was the team’s third leading rusher a year ago. We look forward to seeing what he does for the team next season as he will be a Junior and that is the year where we tend to see the most development.

Today we honor a ’26 MLB/RB many, around the commonwealth, believe to be among the better players on his up and coming 3A football team. This week’s recipient had an incredibly productive ’23 season where he contributed multiple phases of football and led his team to the playoffs, after peeling off five (5) straight victories, in route to a 6-5 finish. This week we are honoring the play of Tyler Kautzman, ’26 MLB/RB, from Dixon, Kentucky’s Webster County High.  

Kautzman was a sophomore at Webster County High School in ’23. Webster County High is only minutes away from today’s featured branch in Sebree, Kentucky and a second branch in Providence.

Trevor Kautzman had a tremendous season in ’23, his sophomore year. He registered 85-tackles, 2.5-TFLs, and a FF on defense.

Offensively, Kautzman carried the ball 91-times, for 409-yards, and scored three (3)-TDs. Kautzman was also among the team leaders in points scored.

For its part, Webster County had a tremendous season in ’23. The Trojans made the KHSAA playoffs, and in a six team district that is no given.

Webster County also lit up the scoreboard in ’23. After losing its opener, Webster reeled off five straight wins, scored 64-points on Trigg County, and put up 73-points on the Ft. Campbell Falcons. The Falcons also made the playoffs this year in Class 2A and had a good season, the defensive debacle against Webster notwithstanding.

Putting athletes like Trevor Kautzman on the field is the reason Trojans appear to be catching fire heading into ’24. That’s our take anyway.

Kautzman, who is also a varsity baseball player and seen sliding into home against Hopkins County Central (above), is 5’7,” and weighs around 200-pounds. Kautzman runs a 4.8-second, 40-yard dash; bench presses over 200-pounds, and squats over 355-pounds according to his profile on Next College Student Athlete.

Those are fine numbers for an athlete at any stage of development. They are also the type statistics one would expect to see from an All-Conference caliber, HS football player.

It is an easy prediction he will be both of those things going forward in ’24.
