-A A +A

Oldham County senior kicker Sean Nuernberger has grabbed another piece of hardware as he prepares to leave for Ohio State.

The Courier-Journal named Nuernberger kicker for the all-state first-team football roster it announced last week.

Nuernberger received the honor for the second straight year.

He hit 13-of-20 field goals this season for the Colonels, including a 57-yarder against Ballard in October.

Nuernberger graduated last month and has enrolled at Ohio State, where he’ll participate in spring practice in the coming months.

South Oldham senior lineman Chris Figg was named second-team all-state.

North Oldham senior lineman Austin Metcalfe took home third-team honors.

Honorable mentions among county players included South Oldham junior linebacker Connor John and senior wide receiver/defensive back Davis Culbertson.

Associated Press all-state teams hadn’t been announced as of the Era’s press deadline.
