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.

Ten Friday night match-ups where the clock will run…

We could pick games every week without missing a single prediction if we wanted to do that. There are very good HS football teams in Kentucky and there are very bad ones too. Just to prove a point, we have outlined ten games we guarantee will be won convincingly by the team we have predicted. If we lose even one of these ten, check the temperature in Hell. Funny thing is, a few of these matchups are between teams with

Knott County’s Blake Whitaker proving a reliable target down the field…

When writing features and covering Kentucky high school football, many publications exclusively cover players on the really good teams. Well, there are players on rosters for teams who struggle. The difference between the rosters of teams doing well versus those who aren’t is often the number of good players the roster contains. Blake Whitaker for Knott County Central is a very good football player. Enjoy this feature about a player who (without us) may get both overlooked and underexposed.

How many times can lightening strike for Logan’s Tyler Ezell?

With apologies to DJ Khaled, it is Tyler Ezell who only wins (“All I do is win, win, win, no matter what…”). He has made a career of ruining the night of the opposing team and arresting victory from the clutches of defeat. He did it to Madisonville North-Hopkins this past Friday night. Can he do it to Hopkinsville this Thursday? If I were Hopkinsville, I wouldn’t want the ball in this kid’s hands with the game in question late. Enjoy the article.

Regarding Hopkinsville’s Reece Jesse, Jr.,…we told you so!

It’s football…not a track meet and not a fashion show!

How does a Georgia State beat a Tennessee in Knoxville and not just beat the Volunteers, but dominate them? Well, it starts by requiring the coaching staff to select the team’s roster and not out-sourcing it to some recruiting service which is assigning stars to the players they find the prettiest and most statuesque. Football isn’t a track meet or a fashion show, it is about blocking, tackling, running between the tackles, getting down hill, and other things unrelated to how one looks. It is a contact sport played by tough guys. We used to know that, and at Georgia State, they appear to still know it.

Well, week “zero” is in the books and old Coach Lyon was 63-50 this weekend. That wouldn’t be too bad if we were a major league baseball team but we aren’t accustomed to a win percentage south of 60% around KPGFootball. I literally can feel Fletcher Long out there smirking (He won with much more frequency last season).

We think Colton Feese is someone sure to hit the field early and probably at QB with the departure of senior Grant Wilburn from Russell last season, and possibly immediately. They really are going to need help at QB for Russell to experience the same type season it enjoyed in 2018 this coming year. When

Hopkinsville’s Denarius “Red” Barnes (2020) is the Meeks & Meeks Montgomery County area Player of the Week

Red Barnes has been a favorite of ours since he transferred to HHS from Wonder Junior High in West Memphis, Arkansas to play his sophomore season. He is one of the best defensive linemen in the Class of 2020 and one of its leading citizens too. This is a kid who we believe is a college football player (no doubt) but isn’t likely to be positioned in college where the Tigers have deployed him. The fact he has thrived along an even defensive front, though undersized, buttresses everything good about his ability we have consistently maintained. This kid is a winner and a player who makes teams for which he plays better teams. Can’t complement any young player anymore than that. Enjoy the article.

Congratulations to Cody Wilson for being this week’s Independence Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week.

Enjoy this article about a kid we believe will be taking flight in 2019 and we track and report on such things with some frequency. Join us next week for another selection.

As scrimmages conclude, and the season looms, how much significance should we apportion any scrimmage outcome? (Featured Photograph: Emily Ball/Bluefield Daily Telegraph)

Scrimmage results are flying across chat rooms, newspaper headlines, and blogs all over the commonwealth of Kentucky. The winners believe it is a credible forecast of success, the losers either believe the team was trying to “not show too much” or it is a forecast of a forthcoming “long year.” Well, truthfully, neither is true. Enjoy this article about scrimmages and why the outcome shouldn’t either dampen or intensify your seasonal expectations.

Spencer County’s Jamarion Smith (@Jizzlesmith5), Class of 2022…We think he’s for-izzle, my-jizzle!

Well, this young prospect is obviously a Snoop Dogg fan. So are we. He’s also Kadin Smith’s little brother and we remember how much of a stud Kadin was in high school before being recruited to play football in the Big-10 for Purdue. Well, Jamarion appears set to launch on a similar flight trajectory. It is coming up on his sophomore year and he has already clocked 40’s in the 4.5’s. It appears it is his time, and with Spencer

Is Todd County Central’s Joshuah Keith the No. 1 QB in KY’s 2024 class? We think so, and here’s why…

We make no bones about it, Joshuah Keith is the best QB in the class of 2024 anywhere in Kentucky in our opinion. He may be 2024’s very best football player too. A lot of what makes him different is his poise and football IQ. Than there is an 8th grader who runs in the high 4.6’s, low 4.7’s, in the 40 and shuttles in a blistering 4.0-flat. Of course his throwing a HS ball 59-yards this summer in Knoxville

That movie featured the coming of age of Michael Oher who went on to become one of the NFL’s marquee tackles. Of course Michael Oher was only 6-4, 315-pounds. Kiyaunta Goodwin is 6-8, 350.

Do they believe FBS schools are better at evaluating prospects than the coaches they have hired?

Congratulations to Armondo Rodriguez for being this week’s Independence Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week. This is a PK who appears to us to really enjoy playing football. The kicking game, often overlooked by everyone except for us, is commonly the difference between winning and losing a football game. Armondo, like his brother before him, gives the Cougars a considerable advantage in this all-important part of the game. Join us next week for another selection.

Tristan Petit, Class of 2021, is the Stewart Williams Company’s Robertson County Player of the Week

This Stewart Williams Company Robertson County Player of the Week is Tristan Petit, who may be one of the finest guard prospects on any roster in Tennessee Class 4A. He certainly plays at one of the classification’s highest regarded programs. Tristan is a kid who really needs to show he can play football with enough motor to continue to drive his feet and pound the ground through the referee’s whistle. Once he does that, his stock will shoot through the roof because his is a frame you don’t see everyday. Enjoy this article brought to you by the fine folks at your locally owned, hometown Stewart Williams Furniture Company. Don’t forget to stop by again next week as we crown another deserving recipient.

Class of 2021’s Aaron Bolster, Rossview High School, is the Meeks & Meeks Montgomery County Player of the Week

Here is another guy who doesn’t really appear anywhere on line or in the stat books. Yet, with his frame and other athletic attributes, it is an easy prognostication he will have a break out junior season for the Hawks in the upcoming Fall. Enjoy this look at a player whose best football is ahead of him and we mean immediately ahead. Check back in with us next week as we recognize another, worthy, Montgomery County area player brought to you by your friends at the hometown, home-owned, Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys.

There is a storm brewing in Richmond, Kentucky! Brady Hensley and Kenyatta Hardge are “Thunder and Lightening”

We have heard thunder only happens when it is raining. We have also heard where there is thunder there is also lightening. Well, opponents of Caudill Middle School have been experiencing some terrible weather over the past three seasons. The two backs we have featured today, Kenyatta “Thunder” Hodge and Brady “Lightening” Hensley, are the most dynamic and productive backfield in Kentucky’s Class of 2024. Enjoy the article. HB.

Grayson’s offer, which was in the mail the whole time, was finally delivered…Grayson Cook offered by Air Force

You know what we encounter at KPGFootball too many times? Parents inordinately anxious about whether their son will be offered a football scholarship. We have talked to many a father on the brink of despair. For some of these fathers, their level of anxiety is both unwarranted and, frankly, ridiculous, if we are being completely honest. Let this article be a lesson to every Kentucky prospect our there with the dream of playing on Saturdays. You keep handling the parts

Preston Spurlock, Class of 2021, Leslie County’s hit-man (Featured Photo: Larry Robinson, BSN)

Preston Spurlock is one of our favorite players commonwealth-wide and someone we have selected to our All-State team two straight years. He is someone for whom opposing coaches have to plan to contain. Failure to game-plan him is costly. We call him around the Magazine either the Mountain Hit-Machine, or the Leslie County Hit-Man. Yeah, we’re pretty clever. Enjoy this article which will fully explain the high regard in which we hold this guy who will play on Saturdays should

Anthony Johns is a bull rumbling at the head of the herd

At KPGFootball we admire the players who kind of have to work for stardom and then do. Anthony Johns has a good frame which appears likely to still be lengthening but his is not the best OL frame we have seen. However, his attention and dedication to strengthening, conditioning, and doing even the little things the right way is among the best we have seen. There aren’t any players in the Class of 2022 which work any harder than this

Folks, the Bobcats are rounding back into the most fearsome team on most people’s schedule and have the chance to be really special in 2019. Braxton O’Hara is just one of the reasons. This is a team which we believe will run the regular season table in 2019. Should they be able to get by Leslie County twice, and handle Beechwood High School and CAL, this may be Mayfield’s opponent at Kroger Field with a title on the line. Remember

This is an OL at the next level, we believe, who has incredible upside between his height, length, athleticism, and nasty disposition on the field. We believe this to be Western Kentucky’s premier RT and maybe the best RT in all of Kentucky in the Class of 2020. Join us next week for another selection.

Jo Byrns High School’s Bobby Ogg is the Stewart Williams Company’s Robertson County Player of the Week

Ogg, who is primarily a PK but can play OLB will be entering his senior year in the Fall of 2019 and figures to give Red Devil fans something to cheer. You know a sure three inside the Red Zone, avoiding an empty trip, will win a HS team quite a few games. We don’t feature the specialists enough in my opinion.

Some will play because the team has specific need where they are slotted and some will play because they are just that good. We published the first 8 players in this series

Daymian Dixon last year decided to come out for football for the first time since he was enrolled at Henderson North Middle School. The results?

He finished off 2018 with 32 receptions for 589 yards receiving and now, on the eve of his senior Fall campaign, appears poised to be one of the Colonels’ most pronounced offensive weapons.

If there was a bright spot it was the play of Braden Myers from Pulaski County, Kentucky. Myers snap arrived on a pulse beat all afternoon, every single time, exactly where you would want it. He manned the A-gap, a hot bed of activity along any front so well you forgot he was out there and he showed great mobility moving

We don’t know how the Henderson County Colonels will replace players like this week’s recipient, Meric-Dean Stinson. It is not everyday a team is fortunate enough to have a guy with Stinson’s heart and fight in the line-up.

No one works harder than Meric-Dean Stinson and efforts like his are worthy of recognition and celebration. That is exactly why he is being recognized this week by Kentucky’s fastest growing (and hardest working) financial institution, Independence Bank. Join us next week as we award this to another worthy football player.

Class of 2020’s Kazmir Hansford from Clarksville NW High School is this weeks, Meeks and Meeks’ Montgomery County Player of the week…

For NorthWest High School in Clarksville, Tennessee to reach its full potential it will need all hands on deck in 2019. One of the most important hands will be those of Kazmir Hansford who will be entering his senior season. Hansford has played RB/WR/ and even a little QB. One never knows exactly where he will show up in a Viking lineup, just that he better show up and show out. Join us next week as we crown a new recipient.

This Week’s Stewart Williams Company’s Robertson County Player of the Week is Greenbrier’s Andy Li, Class of 2021

Both Andy’s brother and he were Bret Cooper Junior All-Americans in middle school. Now, Andy is anchoring both sides of the interior fronts for the Greenbrier Bobcats. Even more astounding is how long it took KPGFootball and Stewart Williams Company to make him the Robertson County Player of the Week. High School football teams rise and fall on the efforts of guys like Andy Li. Enjoy this article brought to you by your hometown furniture and appliance store, Stewart Williams Company in Springfield.

It would appear Peyton Blackburn (@Pblackburn77) Class of 2020 Shelby Valley, has joined General Jackson’s “Stonewall Brigade.”

What does that have to do with Shelby Valley’s Peyton Blackburn? Why don’t you read this article and find out?

Darion Dearinger, Anderson Co./Class of 2021, camping with UTKnoxville this weekend…

This is a prospect KPGFootball has featured plenty of times. This is also a prospect the instate schools can ill-afford to allow to slip down the interstate to Knoxville, Tennessee. Some Power-5 school is going to lock this guy down here pretty soon. If you are either a U of L, UK, or WKU fan, let’s hope it is one of those.

Yeast and Wesleyan pull the trigger on four from the #Brotherhood.

If they belong to #Brotherhood, they can play the sport of football. Myriad are the examples of this. Yesterday, KWC extended offers which included offers to these three members of #Brotherhood. None of these three have seen their last offer. We got to watch all three perform at KWC’s prospect camp and we came away as impressed as Coach Yeast. Enjoy the article.

Family Affair….Class of 2025’s Connor Hodge

His older brother is bracketed as the No. 1 overall prospect, particularly QB prospect, in Kentucky’s Class of 2024 with Joshuah Keith. This version of Hodge QB looks definitively, at least to KPGFootball, to be the Class of 2025’s very best signal caller and, maybe, its best football player. We know he is one of Kentucky’s best basketball players in his graduating class, ask anyone knowledgable on the subject. Don’t know what they are drinking around the Hodge home, we

Team Kentucky Future Stars-8th, Evan Miller, Class of 2023, from Breathitt County. He’s from the mountains…He is a mountain!

One of the big advantages the commonwealth of Kentucky has in the Kentucky-Tennessee Future Stars Classic over its Tennessee counterparts is our ability to mine the coalfields up in Eastern Kentucky for rugged, tough, and often huge linemen. Evan Miller is such a specimen. This kid is 6-2, 305-pounds now and judging by what he did to the size 17 cleats he brought to the Somerset combine, he’s only just begun to grow. Enjoy this article about “the next big thing” at the tackle position in Kentucky HS football, circa Class of 2023.

The Wesleyan Way is getting a ton of travel…

Noah Edelen, Class of 2020, from Owensboro Catholic is the Independence Bank Revolutionary POW

Banks partner up with businesses in an effort to make the business, or its interest-holders, successful. Many times the public doesn’t even know which bank’s capital made the venture possible. In that way, Independence Bank is much like an offensive lineman. They labor in relative obscurity so YOU can flourish and get the accolades and glory. Not only does Independence Bank appreciate players who do the same thing on the gridiron, so do we at KPGFootball. That is why we write so much about offensive linemen. Well, if you love the bigs as much as we, Noah Edelen is your guy. Enjoy this article about one of the better interior OL in the 3A Classification and join us next week as we recognize another worthy player.

Coach Dustin Wilson will have the Jackets ready for action again in 2019 and we believe Tres Haley will be an integral part. Check out this week’s Stewart Williams Company Robertson County Player of the Week and join us next week when we award a new recipient.

2024’s Cole Hodge…we’re pretty sure Tennessee won’t be happy to see he’s back…

Tennessee will have to do something this year we don’t believe they have ever before had to accomplish in series history. The 7th-grade Team Tennessee Future Stars will again face the same QB who came back and beat them in the game a year ago when that guy was in the 6th grade. Can Cole Hodge win Offensive MVP in the 7th grade game two years in a row? We don’t know, but it sure will be fun to see

Here is where you might think us crazy. How does a team which goes 0-11 in 2018, losses 35 straight football games in a row, turn it around in only one year? Well, ask Logan County.

Barrett Traditional’s Cole Wickliffe, the total package at the TE slot for Team KY-8th Future Stars

Old Coach Lyon didn’t know anything about this kid and couldn’t learn anything either through conventional techniques so I asked Coach Long if he wouldn’t lend a hand. Lucky for KPGFootball, Long was able to get Director Hughes who couldn’t be quiet about the kid and his abilities. It would appear this kid is the total package at the TE position.

Javion Rivers from Kenwood High School is the Meeks & Meeks attorneys Montgomery County Player of the Week

Not a lot about this prospect as we couldn’t even find his height and weight anywhere on line. Just another example of why what we do at KPGFootball is so vital for these kids. We were able to watch his film and believe he will be back at Kenwood for the Fall of 2019 as he was listed on Kenwood’s 2019 roster and there were several other references to him on line coming back for the Fall season. This is the type of player a new coach can definitely impact and if Les Greer brings to the table the attributes which got him the job, this player may be one of the heaviest beneficiaries. Congratulations to Javion Rivers for being this week’s Meeks & Meeks Attorneys Montgomery County Player of the Week. Join us next week as we crown a new recipient.

Losing a 6-1, 280 pounder from the middle of your lines of scrimmage is never an easy hole to fill.

We have before awarded this to Trenton Tuttle but after having the opportunity to get to see him at combines over the previous two weekends we were compelled to give it to him another time.

Team Kentucky’s Carson Wright; Is he 2023’s very best LB in the commonwealth? Maybe…

There is an ongoing debate in Kentucky as to whether Carson Wright or Oscar “JT” Adams is the very best LB in Kentucky in the Class of 2023. Well, old Coach Lyon isn’t sure he can resolve that debate for you other than to say both teams set to add either to its roster this coming Fall is mighty fortunate. Today we will spill some more ink over Carson Wright and are equally sure we will come back and spill

Class of 2023 Christian Conyers, Bowling Green, KY
