Luke Burton (@Luke_LB55) from @SouthWarrenFB is the Independence Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week

There isn’t a better linebacker in the 2022 class than Luke Burton and being perfectly honest, we should have had him on our Sophomore All-State team for 2019. Why didn’t we? We missed. We have been telling you that it is impossible to get them all and every team has glaring omissions and this is one we missed. That’s okay Luke, we’re Associated Press voters and we have our eye on you now! Enjoy the article about this week’s Independence Bank Revolutionary Player brought to you by the fastest growing bank in the commonwealth.

KPGFootball’s take on the preseason Top-30 offensive linemen list

Every list ever published extolling the ability of any body of people have had people undervalued on the list, people overvalued on the list, and people glaringly omitted. No list is perfect. BoyleCo has done yeoman’s work here, and while we may not agree with the order, we can’t argue with any of the thirty he listed. We can and will give our opinion…and here it is. Enjoy the article.

Can JT Acosta from @TC_CommodoresFB (Class of 2021) keep the ball rolling at Tates Creek in 2020?

We aren’t sunshine pumpers around KPGFootball. People sign-up to discover what we think and we believe candor is part of what we are selling. While the Commodores shouldn’t be as offensively potent in 2020 as they were in 2019, particularly through the air, they have a star left in JT Acosta. If his offensive play should mirror what he has been doing on defense; well, then all bets are off on this prediction. Enjoy the article. HB.

There is a system already being utilized which we believe to be way more accurate. Read this article and let us know what you think. HB.

Tyler Morris is one of the most explosive athletes in the Kentucky Class of 2022. He may be its best football player too.

He doesn’t gain 228-yards rushing on 15 carries and walk away from Kroger Field with the Class 3A, State Championship Game MVP hardware without Ethan “Big E” Wolford and the rest of “Haywood’s Hogs.” In a game dominated by grown men able to move the unwilling from A to B despite the latter’s protestations, Belfry reinforces the adage one has to “run

Never too soon for us to take a look at next year as the State Championships are to be played this coming weekend.

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.

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

Reece Jesse is killing it out there for the Tigers as they head into their 5th game. This game is against the cross-town rivals, Christian County, who is winless on the year. If the Colonels can’t solve the Jesse-riddle regarding how to keep him from beating them, they will leave Friday night remaining “winless.” You can throw the records out the window when these two play. KPGFootball will have someone in Hopkinsville watching the game for us. Matter of fact,

Coach French has the Yellow-Jackets at 3-1 on the young season and back in discussion for post-season potential. Enjoy the story.

Class of 2021’s Fred Farrier II (@FFarrier2 on Twitter) a real high-Flyer

Talking to a friend of mine and KPGFootball contributor/scout and he was telling me about the Franklin County-Anderson County game. Franklin County won 53-13 and, yeah, the Flyers are loaded but he was also telling me he has coached teams against Franklin County’s splendid Class of 2021 WR prospect Fred Farrier. He told me the kid has been separating and snaring aerials practically without drops since he was a 3rd grader. Thought it would make a fine feature article.

The Product is Glorious!

Colleague of mine called me just yesterday and asked if I had heard about the game between Jordan Miles (Trigg) and Joshuah Keith (Todd) I asked him, “Are you serious? What kind of an outfit do you think we’re running over here?”

Hey, when two of the best football players in Kentucky’s 2024 class lock-horns, KPGFootball is going to be there. The result of the confrontation was gloriously played football played between two very fine football teams.

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.

So you’re D-I?

We get asked (all the time) to tell this school or that whether this player or that can play at the school’s level of competition. There are people out there who possess “the eye.” If they say a kid can play at a certain level, college coaches have learned they can trust that. JT Powell and Carlos Younger are certainly two people possessing “the eye.” We talked to Powell about what one has to be, to be able to get

When Cary Fowler called Dre Boyd’s performance one of the all time single game performances in Kentucky high school football history, we thought he had lost his mind.

The Weekend’s BIGGEST upset! Week “zero” in the books (Featured Photo: Bac Totrong/Daily News)!

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). Anyway, it would help Coach’s win percentage considerably if defending State Champions could manage to beat 2-win teams from 2018 at home,

Justin Bair, Kenwood HS, is this week’s Meeks and Meeks Attorneys Montgomery County Player of the Week…

Both Kavarius Moody and Justin Bair grew up playing football for me when I was on the coaching staff in the Packers organization in Clarksville, Tennessee. It is gratifying to see both of them starring for Kenwood High School and both appear poised to factor largely into the game with Hopkinsville tonight. This kid, like Moody, is a winner and a player who makes teams for which he plays better. Can’t complement any young player anymore than that. Enjoy the article.

Bowling Green’s Bridger Knee (Class of 2022, @bridger_knee) getting ready to tear it up…

There are predictions of which you are so sure you want to remind everyone of what you before said just so they won’t forget where they first heard it. In January of 2019, we predicted Bridger Knee would be a day one, snap one defensive, down-lineman starter for the Purples in 2019. On the brink of kickoff, we thought we would remind everyone what we said in January. That’s how confident we are in our being right (and first). Enjoy

With Feese’s transfer to Russell, this is one time the Feese family won’t be answering the Indian’s smoke signals for help!

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

Class of 2021’s Austyn Day, Springfield High School, is the Stewart Williams Company’s Robertson County Player of the Week

This Stewart Williams Company Robertson County Player of the Week is Austyn Day, a 2021 player at Springfield High School who gets to be the most popular player on this or any team. However, he is one step away from being on the field full-time and the junior has gotten plenty of prep-time in SHS’s scrimmages.

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.

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

Louisville’s Kiyaunta Goodwin ready to bang with the big boys!

When Phillip Fulmer, now the AD at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, but once a National Championship winning football coach at the same school, met Kiyaunta Goodwin he exclaimed it was like being in the movie “The Blind Side” a second time. 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. Regardless, Kiyaunta has been favorably compared to such greats for years now and has the opportunity, this season, to come of age and really showcase what he can do. You see, the player formerly playing 1A football for Holy Cross has now transferred to Louisville’s Ballard High School (6A). Enjoy the article.

Players like Adam McCune, and his brother Luke before him, are just two among many reasons for the run. No one should be surprised when a player with the surname “McCune” turns out to be

The season creeps up on us more and more daily. Monday, teams will be permitted to don what we call “shells” in football. Starting Monday, we will be putting on shoulder-pads to go along with the helmets we have been wearing since “Dead Period” ended.
