Drew Barker

University of Kentucky signee Drew Barker led the first two touchdown drives of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday, helping the West team secure a 28-6 victory on national television. Barker was 4-for-6 passing for 54 yards. He completed his first four pass attempts — three for 15-plus yards — and led the West to its first two touchdowns in San Antonio's Alamo dome.
