I noticed Kendrick was not a finalist for Mr Football this past weekend. Do they sort of spread things around where the guy winning Gatorade award isn't eligible for the other?

Maybe....?
I think Marcus Lattimore won both in 2009.

Here is a list the SC Mr. Football award winners over the years.
:arrow: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Football_Award_(South_Carolina)

Recent SC Gatorade Player of the Year Award winners.
2012 Shuler Bentley QB Byrnes Old Dominion/Murray State
2013 Shuler Bentley QB Byrnes Old Dominion/Murray State
2014 Jj Arcega-Whiteside WR Dorman Stanford
2015 Austin Scott QB Spartanburg Eastern Kentucky
2016 Dakereon Joyner QB Fort Dorchester South Carolina
2017 Derion Kendrick QB South Pointe Clemson

Northwestern's Justin Worley won the National Gatorade Player of the Year award in 2010.

I think only Seniors are awarded the Mr. Football Award,
while underclassmen have won the SC Gatorade Player of the Year award (including some repeat winners)

Just figured it odd that he wasn't even amongst the final five for the Mr Football award. And any list without him among the top five players in the state is suspect on its best day.
