Kentucky legend Tim Couch to be inducted in National High School Hall of Fame
Kentucky legend Tim Couch might not be in the College Football Hall of Fame, but he did receive a big honor this week.
He’ll be inducted into the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) National High School Hall of Fame on July 1, with the ceremony being held in Orlando, Florida.
As you can see below, Keith Farmer of Lex18.com reported the news via Twitter:

Couch, the legendary Kentucky QB, went to Leslie Co. High School in the Bluegrass State. Here’s a recap of his numbers, per the Lex18.com report:
Couch set three national career passing records while growing up in Hyden, Kentucky. He left school with 872 completions, 12,104 yards and 133 touchdowns. As a junior he completed 75 percent of his passes. After graduation in 1995, Couch was named Gatorade and USA Today National Player of the Year. He was also Mr. Football and the Hornung Award winner in Kentucky.
He’s clearly well-deserving of this honor. Perhaps the College Football Hall of Fame will soon follow suit.
