William Carrico plays on a team with plenty of star power at Owensboro Catholic. Between his brother, Vince, and Brady Atwell, a guy who may be the best QB in the commonwealth and on his way to a “Mr. Football” award, it can get lost in shuffle, sometimes, just what kind of sensational year William Carrico has given his fans, coaches, and team. We at Independence Bank and KPGFootball have noticed. So will you as soon as you read this article.

We have tried to spread the jerky around the commonwealth and attempt to not double-award it too often. Some of these guys make it near impossible. Brady Atwell, who has before won the prize, puts up jerky-worthy numbers nearly every week. Perhaps that is why the team is 14-0 and on the cusp of a 2A title.

As promised, here are our picks for Saturday’s games. For the teams vying for championships today, and in the words of the great Reba McIntyre, “here’s your one chance, Fancy; don’t let us down.”
We’ve been bringing it to you all year long. We will break down the Friday and Saturday articles in separate pieces. Easier for the digestion. Here is how we see the first three unfolding. Enjoy this article. Friday Night Fletch!
Cole Hodge has had a sensational career at Christian Academy-Louisville (CAL). He has been a star on the hardwood and the gridiron. The 6’2,” 190-pounder is going to Eastern Carolina to lead its program into college football glory. I get a feeling some in-state schools are going to regret letting this guy get out of Kentucky, mark our words. In the meantime, the Centurions look poised to win a title this year and the Hodge brothers (Cole and Conner) will play a huge part in it. Enjoy this feature and don’t forget to celebrate with us the services, people, and financial products which have caused a revolution in Kentucky’s banking industry. Friday Night Fletch
We can assure you Central is plenty thankful it picked up a versatile athlete the likes of Silas Gunn. Gunn came through for the Storm, big-time, particularly roaming the defensive back-third. Many, many good things ahead for this young athlete and this fine program. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Friday Night Fletch.
Franklin County has been knocking on the door of a championship for the last several years. They sit at 13-0 and get to host the semis, which is always considered a huge advantage. Of course, they are hosting the Boyle County Rebels. Uh…that’s not a very good draw. Griffin will have to be at his best, as will the rest of his compatriots. Enjoy this feature and pop some of Kentucky’s finest jerky products in your mouth and savor the flavor! #SavorTheFlavor! Friday Night Fletch.
The penultimate in high school football is gaining the inestimable privilege of getting to practice football on Thanksgiving. Well, there are 24 teams left who get this privilege and get to build this life-long memory. Half of the remaining will run out onto Kroger Field and play for a championship. Which 12 will it be? We attempt to answer that for you right here. Friday Night Fletch
We take a deep dive into the matchup between Paducah Tilghman and Covington Catholic upcoming this Friday night in the semi-state. The game is being played in Park Hills, KY and we have broken down the relevant subparts to answer the equation (we believe anyway). Enjoy this “deep dive” into the matchup. We didn’t put in many pictures, this is a “meat and potatoes” article and not one for an unserious, high school, football fan. Enjoy, Friday Night Fletch
Anthony White has his big A-Train playing for a 5A regional championship tonight. The Ravens will entertain an Owensboro Senior team which is accustomed to playing at this stage of the KHSAA playoffs. This is new for Atherton but that doesn’t mean we’re at the end. When your coach is the GLFCA Coach of the Year, practically anything can happen. Enjoy this feature and don’t forget to celebrate with us the services, people, and financial products which have caused a revolution in Kentucky’s banking industry. Friday Night Fletch
Isac Earl is a guy who got plenty of run his freshman year, especially for a freshman at QB. This year he took another step toward the player he ultimately will be. This kid is a pretty polished play-maker and is growing into quite the dual threat QB. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch
Daniel Thomas has had quite a career all in one single season. This year alone, the 5’9,” 180-pounder has gained 3,159-yards and scored 45-rushing TDs on 295-carries. He plays defense too as he has 68-tackles, 2-TFLs, and a QB-sack on the year. Enjoy this feature and pop some of Kentucky’s finest jerky products in your mouth and savor the flavor! #SavorTheFlavor!

It isn’t uncommon for players to play high school football for their dads. Matter of fact, 1956 Heisman, runner-up, and College Football Hall of Famer, Johnny “The Drum” Majors, played for his dad in high school (Shirley Majors) at Huntland High. Often, as was the case in the Majors’s situation, the son is the dad’s very best player. Mike Marksbury has done a wonderful job at Spencer County. One has to wonder how much his son, Kellen, has done to further dad’s coaching career. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch
Friday Night Fletch has become a commonwealth-wide phenomenon in high school football circles. Frankly and succinctly put, Fletcher Long knows twice as much about the world of KHSAA football as any one person alive today. He is an expert; he has done the work. Enjoy this article and let’s see Friday night how right or wrong he was.
Russ Crowe helped his Daviess County ball club get to tonight’s second round match-up with Central Hardin in Edgewood, Kentucky. I am not sure how many of you realize what an uphill battle Daviess County had to fight to just get to this game. That North Hardin club had to forfeit some games for the use of an ineligible player this year. Many of the games North was required to forfeit were games North had won handily. Enjoy this feature and don’t forget to celebrate with us the services, people, and financial products which have caused a revolution in Kentucky’s banking industry. Friday Night Fletch
Logan Rodgers has been getting pressed of late and by a face pretty familiar to him and to us. Adrian Stringer is a sophomore QB for Illinois College, a Midwest Conference team which looks likely to advance to the NCAA field this Fall. The “Blueboys” stand at 8-1 overall with a 7-1 conference mark and beat Monmouth, head to head, earlier in the year 20-17. Stringer has been soliciting Rodgers to come join him. Will Rodgers heed the call? Enjoy this feature. Friday Night Fletch.
’24 LB (& Redhawk commitment) demonstrated prowess on offense and defense in round one We reported on this guy and awarded him this same distinction back in August of 2023. He had a night, in the first round, we just had to reward. It isn’t everyday a 5A player contributes […]
Nate Goodin is among the more productive dual-threat QBs in the mountains and plays for, historically, one of its stronger programs. Williamsburg hasn’t been as good this year as they have been in others but, they are young, and with talent like Nate Goodin around, the Yellow Jackets figure to be in the mix going forward. Of course, the young Jackets, coached by Jerry Herron, Jr. have to attempt to survive a trip to Pikeville, Kentucky in round two. That trip to Pikeville has taken down a many Yellow Jacket football team in years gone past. Friday Night Fletch
Paris heads to Lexington, KY to take on the 11-0, Sayre Spartans, and its splendiferous sophomore QB, Luke Pennington. Pennington had thrown 37-TD passes to zero INTs entering the first round game against Harlan. However, Paris has some fine talent of its own, including ’27 signal-caller, Julius Gregory and a young head coach everyone is talking discussing (Tyquan Rice, pictured). We will take a look at this matchup, which might go a ways toward reserving a slot on Kroger Field in early December. Friday Night Fletch
Every one talks about Montavin Quisenberry around the Boyle program and rightfully. However, Boyle has another athlete on its roster clipping off fully automated 10.8-second, 100-meter track times. That converts to a 40-yard dash time of 4.5-seconds (fully automated) which is blazing. This guy has averaged over 30-yards a reception this year and is second on the team in TDs receptions. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch.
It is playoff time around Kentucky and every team enters the playoffs with the same 0-0 record shooting for 5-0. Warrant Central starts its journey tonight when it travels to Henderson County. Let’s see if Yzir Gray can help the Dragons get off on the right foot.

In 1970, on the band’s final album, Paul McCartney wrote a song which would be the Beetles’ last number one hit entitled, “The Long and Winding Road.” It has been such a road for Central’s Calil McNary, and his head football coach Chris Manning. Enjoy this feature detailing and highlighting a remarkable talent. Friday Night Fletch.
Montavin Quisenberry, or “Q” as we call him around our offices, is the best football player in Kentucky’s ’25 graduating class. We have thought this for around three years, since back in his Garrard County days, and he has done nothing to dispel this belief. His night against Frederick Douglass, we felt, was jerky worthy. We could give him this award every week. Enjoy this feature and pop some of Kentucky’s finest jerky products in your mouth and savor the flavor! #SavorTheFlavor! Friday Night Fletch.
We love to come up with something clever in the title. Daulton Tarter’s name lends itself to “Tartar Sauce” references easily and we decided to go with that. I wanted to make a “Steak Tartare” reference but Coach Lyon pointed out the spellings were significantly different. Coach Lyon really enrages me some days. Enjoy this feature. Friday Night Fletch
Gatorade’s slogan, or one of them at least is, “Is it in you?” That is a very appropriate question and one which bears on how this kid came to commit to EKU. Hensley’s father was a four year football letterman at EKU and both his parents graduated from EKU. Do you know what is in him other than a legacy to EKU? We think the Gatorade Kentucky High School Player of the Year. Give this man a Gatorade. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch
This is Bryson Johnson and he is the best football player in 8th-grade anywhere in Kentucky. He forecasts as a LB, most likely, in high school but could find a home in the offensive backfield. His being omitted from ANY middle school all-star, all-state team is a gross omission. Friday Night Fletch.
Coby Dant is a perfect example of the type player Independence Bank seeks to publicize. He is an under the radar guy who eschews glory or fame in order to go out, night in and night out, and just do the job.

I will always remember 2024 and the season which provided fans plenty of suspense and thrills. It will always stand out to me of the “season which could have been.” Enjoy this look back at the year and look forward to stomping the ever-loving, gob-sobbing, crap out of Fulton County tomorrow night. Friday Night Fletch
We called this Pennebaker kid going off in a preseason article written about the likely top five in ’23 in the 1A classification. Holy Cross has underperformed a little, though the only performance which counts is on the brink of commencing, but Pennebaker has been on the money. We believe in Coach Eric Dick’s Cougars and wouldn’t be surprised for them to hang around a while in the playoffs. Till then, pop some of Kentucky’s finest jerky products in your mouth and savor the flavor! #SavorTheFlavor! FL
Trigg County has a hoss middle school team led by a hoss. You may not remember Coach Taylor McGee but he was an All-State player for Trigg County High, broke the Kentucky Powerlifting Meet bench press record (at the time) competing in the sport’s Heavyweight Division (435-pound bench), played in college at KENTUCKY WESLEYAN, and is now coaching the Middle School Wildcats where he has enjoyed unparalleled success at the helm. Enjoy this feature about a team certainly one of the more talented competing at the middle school level anywhere across the commonwealth. Friday Nigh Fletch
Lexington Christian Academy (LCA) is tracking that title this year in 2A and the Eagles have all the flight power needed to walk off Kroger Field very, very happy. The strength of the team isn’t subsumed in its passing attack. LCA has (perhaps) the best rushing attack in Kentucky’s high school game. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch
Ballard certainly knows something about developing top-flight talent at DE. Remember Jadairion Smith? We sure do. Ballard is now 6-3 with Woodford County remaining and Mikel Clack is the new “Jadairion Smith.” Clack leads the commonwealth in sacks and has a long frame, albeit slight, but he can really move. Ballard is staring down the barrel of a 7-3 finish, and with the 7th-highest RPI in the class, the 6A, 5th district Bruins hope to host to host an opening game. Friday Night Fletch
Jack James is one of Kentucky’s very best at the QB position especially in the ’25 graduating class. He is already his schools all-time TD thrower and Hunter Cantwell played at PTHS. What James did last Friday night is the type production you’re lucky to get on a video game. Enjoy the feature and celebrate with us the services, people, and financial products which have caused a revolution in Kentucky’s banking industry. FL.
Ahmari Alexander is an example of the fine ’26s we have around the commonwealth of Kentucky. This kid is 6′ tall and weighs a sturdily proportioned 210-pounds. He was enjoying quite a sophomore year before falling to injury. He will be heard from again we are willing to wager. Friday Night Fletch
It is definitely “crunch time” around Morton’s Gap. This is win or play basketball time in District 1. What makes this district so hard is the fact there are five good football teams, with Union perhaps elite, vying for 4-seats on the bus. The music is about to stop playing. Will there be a spot for our Storm? Friday Night Fletch.
Man oh man is that cat having himself quite the senior season. Coming into the playoffs it is hard to imagine a guy playing any better than Male High’s Kolter Smith.

5’10, 160-pound, ’25 QB turning around Tigers John Aiden King isn’t called “John” by anyone that we have ever heard. He is “Aiden” to us, and to the fans following the Tigers this season. Aiden has played in five of the team’s eight games. There is no question the Tigers […]
’23 Chargers team showed its vastly different than prior versions Camron McDaniels may be the best kept secret in Kentucky High School football. The junior TE/DE, with the help of his teammates, has completely reversed the Chargers’ football fortunes. At 6’5,” 245-pounds, he has the perfect frame for D-1 football […]
Bryce Button, a ’25 QB at South Warren in Bowling Green, KY, over the first seven (7) games of this ’23 season has been the very picture of Swiss-made precision. Last week he completed close to 80% of his passing attempts and threw for four (4) TD’s against 0-picks. Regardless of college potential, and he has his fair share, this kid is a dynamite high school football player. Enjoy the feature and celebrate with us the services, people, and financial products which have caused a revolution in Kentucky’s banking industry. FL.

Every time Calil McNary gets a hand-off, the PA says, “McNary on the Carry.” Now, that is branding. Every time we see Central’s 6’2,” 240-pound FB we think, “McNary on the Carry.” When you see him around Hopkins County, try it! He broke several career marks in his fine career last Friday against Trigg County. His night against Trigg alone was jerky-worthy. Throw in the career marks, and it really isn’t close.

Today we are looking at a program which has snuck up on some people after a 5-6 ’22 season. Mercer will have many pieces back next year, particularly on defense, but the McKinney, season ending injury in the game with Southwestern was heart-breaking. Still, Mercer has an opportunity to finish very strong and go into the playoffs 9-1. Enjoy the feature. “Friday Night Fletch”
Russ Osborne leads his Shelby Valley Wildcats to victory and has the athleticism to play on either side or the football at the next level. We don’t know where that level will be but we know there will be a next level for this guy. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch
The most knowledgeable person in the commonwealth on the topic of Kentucky High Football breaks down this week’s action from the gridiron. At the bottom is a link to the radio show.
Jackson County on Thursday night, with the help of a splendid senior RB who began the year as a TE/LB, did something the program has never before done…the Generals won their sixth game of the season in only the team’s eighth attempt. The Generals are sitting at the top of the 5th District (freelance) standings with two games to play staring down the barrels of an 8-2 potential. They were 0-10 a year ago. Wow!
James “Pocket Full Of” Posey has been in everyone’s pocket (or backfield) over the first seven (7) games of this ’23 season. Last week, against one of the stronger ball clubs in 3A, District 1 (McLean), Posey spent the entire night chasing ball handlers around the Cougars’ backfield. He is a tad undersized but has the length to make up for it. Regardless of college potential, and he has his fair share, this kid is a dynamite high school football player. Enjoy the feature and celebrate with us the services, people, and financial products which have caused a revolution in Kentucky’s banking industry. FL.
We enjoy bringing you scouting reports on just whom The Storm is playing each Friday night. This week is a winnable game on the road over a Trigg County team which, much like The Storm, is a much better than its record would suggest. We believe The Storm will emerge victorious, but the game still has to be played. See you guys in Cadiz.
Tucker Warren is a transfer from 5A North Laurel. He is killing it at “The Rock” and Rockcastle High is, in turn, killing it this season.

I coached a player at Hoptown Middle School who went on to be a star in HS and signed with Campbellsville. Jevon Leavell was that guy and a coach I had on staff looked at me, one time, and said, “Coach Long, I am going to give you some advice today which stands to really help us…find ways to get the ball in Mr. Leavell’s hands.” Leavell went on to break Hoptown’s 100-meter dash record in track. Artose Pinner and Curtis Pulley both ran track for the Tigers. Leavell and Wheels Turner have lots in common. Enjoy the feature. FL.

Central went on the road needing a win to get into the number two slot when seeding commences.

“Mr. Football” gets annually awarded to the very best football player in the high school game from across Kentucky. It is almost always awarded to a senior. Daniel Thomas (’24), from Bell County, is eerily reminiscent of Isaac Dixon from a few years back who won “Mr. Football” himself. Thomas may be the odds-on favorite for this year’s distinction for what he does for the offense AND what he lends to the defens. Enjoy this feature. FL.
This article isn’t about the controversy swarming the Crimson program. This article is about a group of kids who are rising above, sit at 5-0 entering a game with CAL and having already beaten both South Warren and Taft High (OH). This article is even more particularly about German Traynor, a sophomore RB making a huge impact for this ball club when it is most needed. Enjoy the feature. FL.
The Colonels limped through the non-conference slate emerging 0-2. They drew a tough assignment in having to travel to Memphis and battle a 2-0 Rhodes team riding a 3-0 win streak to include beating Birmingham Southern 20-3 back in November of 2022. Jack Gohmann drew the assignment and proved himself to be equal to the task. Enjoy the feature!
After last night’s 22-point loss to Union County, the remaining five games are games the Storm is capable of winning. It will take a Herculean effort to run the table (5-0) but we have the talent and ability to do just that. A 7-3 finish would put us in the number 2 slot in district 1 and assure us a couple home playoff games. This may be shaping up to be quite the year. FL.
We call him “Ca$H Money” around our offices. Caden Scott, a ’28 prospect at QB for Trigg County Middle, is an exceptional athlete who can make all the throws and move around the pocket sufficiently to work himself free from the pass rush. This is a kid who would challenge for first-team reps at a lot of high schools if 8th-graders were permitted to play up on varsity by KHSAA rule. Enjoy the feature. FL.
This week’s Revolutionary Player of the Week is Tel Tel Long (No relation, but we would be proud to claim him) from Bowling Green’s Greenwood High.

This team was 0-11 a year ago and not too many of its games were even close. How does a team which only averaged under 10-points a game a year ago and threw a whopping 18-picks rebound to averaging 48.5-points a game, over the first four, and throw for 502-yards with 7-TDs and no INT’s in a single game?

The RPI will be rolled out here shortly. In fact, we almost expect the same to come out this week or next. We want you to be braced for something, Owensboro Catholic will be either No. 1 or No. 2 in 2A regarding RPI. They will likely stay there all season long. If they do, they will be home for the playoffs until packing for Kroger Field. What makes us say that? Enjoy the article! FL

Everyone who even remotely follows the sport knows the Union County Braves are among Kentucky’s elite 3A programs especially on the western end of Kentucky.

Cooper Jones hasn’t played a ton of football at the varsity level, YET! That doesn’t mean he won’t.

This guy does a tremendous among of things well for an upfront guy. His down and drive block is intimidating and overpowering. He moves his feet well. He can pass set. We see Fitzenberger as an offensive center in college. Regardless, we see him in college. FL.
There are tons of football players across Kentucky who are just solid Friday night stars. We believe most of these young men would make fine additions to a college program though the level of collegiate competition may vary. Sadly many of these guys will “hang it up” after “Senior Night” of his senior season. Here is a guy we are sure will go on and play in college and he has many, many fine programs seeking his services. Looks like plenty of college coaches have found their way to Covington, KY. Today, we will go there too. FL.

This guy is a ’23. Yeah, I know this time of year we should be focusing on ’24’s and later.

Fay is a kid who plays football and basketball, but correctly, realizes his more definitive future in athletics is on the grid iron as opposed to the hardwood.

He has some impressive courters presently with more circling. Enjoy the feature. FL.
His name is William Carrico. His nickname is Tutt. We don’t know from where Tutt came but are sure it is one whale of a story.

We don’t all bloom at the same time. Some kids blossom later than others. Xavier Maddox is an example of this principle.

Enjoy the feature. FL.
This is a ’25 WR/DB whose best football is ahead of him in the Boone County Rebel program. He has mostly contributed as a DB to date, but many believe his future at WR is equally exciting.

We have given this to this player before today. Thing is, owing to the injuries this player has before suffered, we really haven’t seen what it is he can actually do.

Coach Manning really had that South Hopkins football program humming. How much you ask? Well, they aren’t but a few years removed from playing for a KYMSFA state championship.

Xavier Biggers is an example of a player who adds value to all three phases of a football game. This guy is a football version of a one-man band at times.

Kory Combs (’25, Breathitt, LB/FB) and Blake Evans (’25, Bell County, LB/FB) appear to be friends.

Jaylen Bass is a guy who, were he a few inches taller, would be one of the more coveted LG’s in the country among High School ’24’s.

When you look at The Storm’s defensive numbers from ’22 something jumps off the page at the inquisitor.

Good question…good thing for you this article may have some answers. FL.
Mason Gardner is 6A’s King of the End Zone. At least, that is what the statistics from ’22 tells us. This is a kid who put 172-points on the scoreboard in 12-games or 14.3-points per outing. Central Hardin narrowly lost its Regional Championship game to the team which eventually won it all.

Zander Curry is a throwback to the days when college football stars were versatile and called upon often to contribute to the team’s efforts in all three phases of the game. This kid scores TD’s, long-snaps, houses kick-offs, makes tackles, recovers fumbles, and even intercepts passes (7-INT’s in ’22).

To say the Braves lost quite a bit of production off its 12-1 Regional Runner-up in ’22 may be a bit of an understatement. These guys really took a hit at the hands of the graduation stage.

Enjoy the feature. HB.
Here is a kid who has been out in the working world and realizes that college degree changes his entire career arc.

That is the kind of man for whom I would want my son to play. HB.
Nikolas Tucker, and players like him, are how teams in Kentucky 5A go 13-1 in the first place. Interior DT’s who can slide out to DE don’t come around every day. Tucker is looking for a big senior year and we believe that is exactly what he is likely to experience. Enjoy the feature. HB.

This kid here has numbers, particularly in the weight room, which just sort of jump off the charts at the reader. He is crazy strong, crazy powerful, crazy explosive, and crazy young. Not even being a freshman could shelve him for the year. Wait until you see what this guy does over the next three years. Avoid the rush, get scared now! HB.
Davon “Smoke” Rudolph, ’24 from Ballard High, is bringing the SMOKE! This guy is a OLB/Nickle candidate who brings a ton to the table for college recruiters. That is probably why this kid will be ranked among Kentucky’s elite when the final rankings of the ’24 graduating class gets published. […]
This kid literally has it all. It is very hard to evaluate 7th-graders but quicks and speed are things which can be somewhat evaluated, even in younger prospects.

Destin Cheirs, when last we heard, was going to attend Murray State and try his hand at Ohio Valley Conference Football. Well, it would appear he will aim his sights a bit higher.

We love athletes who remember the “student” portion of “student-athlete.” Nehemiah Lucky is certainly one of those. Lucky sports a 3.8 GPA at Louisville’s Fern Creek High.

Enjoy this feature about this very fine junior ILB and don’t forget to #Savortheflavor. HB

Zach Crutcher has everything to succeed at the high school level and quickly.
