Edmonson County senior running back Daniel Caudill has been named the class 3A District 2 Player of the Year by the Kentucky Football Coaches Association.
Caudill finished the season ranked number one in the state in class 3A in scoring with a total of 198 points on 31 touchdowns.
Caudill said it felt great to receive the news today. "That was one of my individual goals going in, and it's an honor to have with all the great talent in our district."
The Wildcats missed this year's playoffs, finishing 4-6 on the season under first year head coach Nathan Smith while fighting through more than their fair share of troubles.
"This season, if you look at it on paper people would say it wasn't a success, but we were plagued with injuries all year long and we fought through adversity," said Caudill. "The team fought hard all season. There's still a lot of talent coming back next year and the future is bright for Edmonson County football."
Caudill said even though his senior football season is complete, his future plans for playing football are far from over.
"Unless anything else happens recruiting wise, I plan on going to WKU, playing football, and making a name for myself there."
Caudill also finished 3rd in the state in total rushing yards with 1,544.
