Every list ever published extolling the ability of any body of people have had people undervalued on the list, people overvalued on the list, and people glaringly omitted. No list is perfect. BoyleCo has done yeoman’s work here, and while we may not agree with the order, we can’t argue with any of the thirty he listed. We can and will give our opinion…and here it is. Enjoy the article.

He had a splendid sophomore campaign at Frederick Douglass before bolting for the prestigious IMG Academy for his Junior campaign.

We used to call him “Big Baby” around the magazine when he was killing it down in the MS ranks as a valuable member of Team Kentucky. We hear he has grown up and we know he is back on the Kentucky side of the line dividing West Virginia and the Bluegrass. It will be fun to see him now that he is all grown up. We know Pikeville is also excited. HB Lyon.

Tyler Morris is one of the most explosive athletes in the Kentucky Class of 2022. He may be its best football player too. With the size and physicality of a LB and the speed, agility, quickness, and explosion of a “skill,” Morris is the KHSAA’s version of the one-man band. His skill-set and determination make him a likely “Mr. Football candidate” in two years if not even next year. Enjoy the article about one of our favorite players. HB.
