Okay, we agree with you Boyle County is really good. What with the D-1 talent dotting the roster, one of Kentucky’s very best head football coaches, and a storied tradition accustomed to winning championships and making deep playoff runs, there can’t be legitimate talk concerning a team’s likelihood of winning it all which doesn’t include Boyle County’s Rebels. Their .748 RPI, through 7 games, Class 4A’s highest number, doesn’t hurt their prospects either.
Shouldn’t overlook the classification’s second highest RPI, old number .712. You know the team, the one with the RPI between Johnson Central’s .700 and Boyle County’s .748. One of three teams in the classification to have not yet lost a game. Yep, we’re talking about the Flyers from Franklin County High School.
What makes Franklin County so good you ask? Well, the play of the Class of 2021 QB, Nick Broyles isn’t hurting a darn thing.
Broyles is listed at 6-1, 180-pounds. He is Franklin County’s leading rusher if the season were to end today. Right now Broyles has gained 531-rushing yards in 61 rushing attempts with 6 TDs scored on the ground. What he has done passing the football is even more impressive.
The junior QB has completed 81 of his 122 passing attempts. That is a completion percentage of .66393443. He has thrown for 1,635 yards (233.57 yards per game) together with 22 passing TDs (a little over 3 per game) with only 2 thrown interceptions.
The Calpreps.com computer algorithm has Franklin County ranked as the 22nd best high school football team in Kentucky regardless of classification. Among 4A schools, the Calpreps.com algorithm, which is used by MaxPreps, sees the 4A classification (which they call a “Region”) this way:
There can be little to no question, Franklin County is legitimately in the State Championship Title hunt. There can be even less question they are in the chase owing to the extraordinary play from its junior signal caller.
Nick Broyles has shown, all season, he is a force with whom to be reckoned among Class of 2021 QBs. He has also shown no legitimate “title-talk,” in the 4A classification, can be had omitting the “Flyers” from the conversation. The same is true of any talk about which QBs should be considered, come year’s end, for All-State selection.
