’24 dual threat headed to play collegiately at the prestigious Air Force Academy
Sage Dawson made our Large School All-State Football team as a dual-threat QB. He had quite a year and led his team to another Class 4A title, his second consecutively and its fourth. Dawson is an all-state player, an all-state student, an all-American citizen, and an all around inspiration.HB Lyon, Scouting Director, KPGFootball

DJ Khalid had a hit song which reminds me so much of Sage Dawson, ’24 dual threat QB from Boyle County. In the song entitled, “All I do is win…,” Khalid writes the below lyrics:
“All I do is win, win, win, no matter what; Got money on my mind, I can never get enough; And every time I step in the building everybody’s hands go up; And they stay there…”
We aren’t insinuating Dawson only has his money on his mind. Matter of fact, Dawson’s actions support the least of his concerns is his money.
Dawson is an exemplary student, exemplary citizen, and a real role model for young football players across the commonwealth. However, the fact remains that all Dawson did, particularly in high school and, particularly, after transferring to Boyle County was win, win, win, no mater what. Every time he trotted out onto a football field everybody’s hands went up…and stayed there.
Dawson completed 137 of his 194-passing attempts in ’23. That is an incredibly efficient passing rate of .7061855670103093 or right at 71%. Dawson threw for 29-TDs, ran for four (4)-scores, and was only picked off five (5)-times.
The most important statistic was the team’s 15-0 mark and 4A championship. He would be the first to tell you that.
Dawson was the district’s POY, the classification’s POY, and one of our All-State, dual-threat QBs. The biggest reward of all was his getting the opportunity to play FBS, Division 1 football at the United States Air Force Academy.
Dawson published the following upon committing to Air Force. “Thank You, Coach Haddix for believing in me and making me a better QB! You were always on my side and will continue to be! Thank You, Boyle County for taking me in and treating me like I was in the system from the start!”
With that quotation, we are getting to the gist of how the Rebels keep winning titles. It is Coach Haddix being on his players’ side and believing in his guys. It is Haddix and staff developing Boyle County’s talent. It is the culture of accepting new talent and treating that talent as if it was always part of its locker room.
Sage Dawson was a perfect QB for Boyle County. Largely because Boyle, like its All-State, dual-threat QB; wins, wins, wins no matter what. Throw your hands in the air…and they stay there!
