This kid is still growing as he leaves to play college football for John Luttrell at Union College. Don’t be surprised if his “best football” isn’t actually played in college and don’t be surprised if he scores an NFL combine invite in a few years. Enjoy the article. HB.

Everybody has to start somewhere. Josh Baisden isn’t as large as his brother, Jacob, and he hasn’t been as productive for the Belfry…yet! Jacob Baisden is moving on to college and many believe Josh is headed for the Belfry D-Line rotation in spite of his only seeing action in 3-games in 2019. Enjoy the article. HB.

@logan_weedman from @REALAHSFOOTBALL looking to help restore the Eagles to prominence

This is an example where an early offer may have stopped other schools from offering. Logan was offered by the Wildcats in 2017 and has only added one other offer since (WKU). Of course, one doesn’t need but one, one can only accept one anyway. This is a consistently rated player who we think of more as a DE than the TE position where both major rating services forecast he will play in college. Enjoy the article. HB.

With @orryperry19 and the gang returning in 2020, West Carter figures to be favored to repeat as Class 2A, District 8 Champions. @WCcomets, @GavinAd20116319

Most people thought Shelby Valley would emerge from the 8th-District as the champion in 2019. Well, most people couldn’t have been more in error. It was West Carter, at 9-4 in 2019, who went on to play Beechwood for the Regional Title. Well, 8th-district, bad news, the Comets return many key components in 2020. Enjoy the article. HB.

Class of 2021 @LamontKennedy8 and his @GRC_Clark_FB teammates looking to ‘Discover’ their best warriors…

Everybody is always fixated on the RBs. With a RB returning like Azariah Israel you can see the reason for the fixation. However, those guys still have to have someone block for them. Israel returns Lamont Kennedy in front of him to clear the way in 2020. We are willing to bet this thrills him to no end. Enjoy the article! HB.

@WoodfordFBall picks up a timely and important enrollee in Andrew Nason

You Really don’t want to lose top-flight talent entering your ninth-grade. Not all ninth-graders are created equally. Some have the frame, polish, and skill set to help teams out quickly. Andrew Nason is one of those type ninth-graders. He has had excellent coaching, has a very polished skill-set, with an excellent frame and athleticism which would indicate early PT for one of 2024’s best football players.

@AlexFarler, formerly @LchsLeslie has enrolled at Southwestern High School and practiced last night with @Southwestern_FB

This is a very solid pickup for Class 5A Southwestern High School in Pulaski County, Kentucky. Alex was an all-District performer a year ago and was one of the Eagles most reliable down-field receiving targets and one of its more capable coverage corners. He is a former “Team Kentuckian” so we know he possesses the ability to play the game at a very high level. He will need that ability because Southwestern has some “folks” to play in that very

Sometimes we forget that not every kid comes in and slides straight into the Friday night lineup as a freshman. This is especially true at the 5A level of football in Kentucky. However, by year’s end we saw more and more of JT Adams patrolling the Colonel defense’s second level. Get ready, you will certainly see way more of that this year out of a kid we have consistently ranked among the top 2-3, 2023 LBs. Enjoy the article. HB.

Let’s check in with @rudy_blackwell from @BelfryFootball1…

We thought we would check in on a kid which Belfry (lucky them) seems to grow on trees over there. Rudy Blackwell, Jr. made our Freshman All-State Football team in 2019 and considering how he played and the numbers he put up it really wasn’t a close call. Heading into his sophomore year, if he continues to develop physically, grow a little thicker to go with his growing taller, there is really no limit to how good he can be.

When the Lakers were on in 2019, like on the road at Hoptown, November 8, 2019, for round-one, they were really competitive and looked to have the trappings of a fine ball club. Unfortunately, when thy were “off” man were they “off,” like the first game with Hopkinsville back in September. Still, the young ball club is well coached and has capable talent on which to build like this week’s Revolutionary Player of the Week.

Our opinion of the Coaches’ All-State Football team? We offer the following friendly amendments!

No team gets them all. The Coaches’ All-State Football team was just announced and it was a fine one with every player we saw deserving of selection. Still, we feel they undervalued some of the players and missed on some others. So here are our “friendly amendments and additiions” to the Coaches’ team. The media team will be out before you know it and I am pretty sure we will screw the pooch in the eye of many when it

In a departure from our customary Revolutionary Player of the Week, we thought it would be cool to award a Player of the Year for 2019 from out of the areas serviced by Independence Bank, the fastest growing bank in the commonwealth of Kentucky.

Collins (2020) & Long (2021) are “Double-Trouble” for Breathitt Opponents…

The two players we are featuring together in this article are two guys who both relocated to Jackson, Kentucky (as luck would have it) during this summer. Both of their parents found employment in the area and uprooted their respective families. The Collins family has long-standing ties to Breathitt County High School as the Collins boys prior to CA Collins all played at Breathitt. The Longs had never been to Jackson, Kentucky before finding employment in the area and deciding to locate there. It has worked out swimmingly for a team which no media outlet predicted would do much in 2019 but which is absolutely killing it with considerable contribution from the two guys who have (naturally) bonded. Individually they are “CA Collins” and “William Long” but together they spell Double-Trouble for Breathitt opponents.

Anderson County’s Darion Dearinger, an All-State DE by any definition (featured Photo: Melissa Klink Photography)

It is getting time to start thinking about All-State selections. When it comes to voting on the All-State team (AP), we nominate guys positionally for inclusion. What we mean by that is when the AP asks for five linemen we nominate a center, two guards, and two tackles. The way we treat it is who would we want if this mythical team were going to play a game against another team and we really, really wanted to win. When we are asked for 4 defensive linemen, for instance, we give two DEs and two interior guys for the mythical defensive line. We nominate two safeties and two corners for the back end, so on and so forth. Our criteria is a simple one, our first team player would have to be good enough to transfer anywhere in Kentucky and be first team wherever he landed at the position at which he is being nominated. With that as a working criteria, which isn’t going to change, we will feature, from now through the opening of the ballot, players we believe fit that bill. We will start with a DE from Anderson County for which there will be little to any debate.
