Well for those wondering, it was a wild and woolly Friday night of football around Kentucky. Saturday night will be exciting too. Here are some of the games from around Kentucky which resonated with KPGFootball and what we know or think we know after two games played. Enjoy the article and some of you won’t.
Congratulations to Shane Riley, who plays RB/MLB for Daviess High School, for his revolutionary play on the football field for the Class 6A, District 1 football team out of the western region of Kentucky. Join us next week for another selection.Read more
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
Old Coach got to feature a player today from Decatur, Tennessee even though it is well outside our coverage area. If it gets us a few new members or nets us a tremendous amount of “views” they might let me expand our coverage area a bit and get more of these type players from the East Tennessee area. Enjoy this article about Luke Pendergrass.
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. In looking back on the night statistically, we would have to agree. Man, did Dre Boyd ever lay out an all-time performance this past Friday night. Makes one wonder how he figures to do the rest of the year. Enjoy the article.
We are proud to both be voting members of the Associated Press and to represent you subscribers in the weekly top-10 polls and the selection of the All-State football team at year’s end. Here is the top-10, AP football poll for Kentucky’s six classes.
Throughout the season we pick weekly winners. It was one of our more popular segments a year ago. This year we will decide which games we cover based on our “hits.” Read us, you get covered. Ignore us, we ignore you. These are some Friday night match-ups in areas where we get a lot of views. This week we thought we might enliven things by singling out some games for witty commentary.

They call minor league teams supplying the majors with talent a “Farm system.” You will see writers who cover MLB talk about news “Down on the Farm.” We have borrowed from that principal for this weekly segment on outstanding performances from middle school stars who will shortly be starring on Friday night. Believe me, their time will be here before you can possibly believe. Enjoy this regular, in-season, look at what is going on down on the farm. HB.
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,
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.Read more
