We featured this guy during the ’20 season after his having a huge game against Logan County. We decided to check back in and see how the rest o the season went for him and were really impressed. This kid is a football player. Enjoy this feature brought to you by the fastest growing bank in the commonwealth, your friends and ours, Independence Bank. HB.
Here is another kid about whom you have likely never heard but from whom we believe you will hear plenty in the coming year. Elijah White is a ’23 guy who has been staffing the stat sheets playing for Class 5A Cooper High School. The Jaguars are mighty glad to have him. In this article you will see why that is. Enjoy the feature. HB.
If winning co-Mr. Football from the Associated Press isn’t worth this award and the prizes which come along with it, then what does one possibly have to do? All kidding aside, we have already awarded this distinction to Cameron Hergott so it is only fair Jager should get a T-shirt and some delicious beef jerky too. Enjoy this feature from our friends at the Mingua Beef Jerky Company. HB.
There are all-state caliber players all over the Kentucky high school landscape. Braxton Newborn is a prime example of this. He is one of ’22s most dynamic, two-way performers and one of its surest next-level bets. Enjoy the feature about a kid we both should already know and know well. HB.
We may be going out on a limb a little here but we believe Cooper Mullins will have a big year in ’21, his senior year. We have studied some of his highlights and we really are convinced he’s poised to make a big move this coming Fall. Enjoy the feature. HB.
It is not every day you have rising ninth-grade “Bigs” who appear destined to challenge for early playing time. Then again, not every program has them coming out of MS 6-3, 290, highly decorated at the level of play the player is leaving, and already being followed on Twitter by college programs intent on recruiting the young player in the “not too distant” future. Enjoy this look at an OL who figures to be among the best along the front in his high school graduating class (’25). HB.
This young man intends to “bring the smoke” this season for the duPont Manual Crimsons. One thing is for certain, Scott Carmony’s ball club is never hurting for athletic talent, and next season will be no exception. Join us again next week as we crown another worthy recipient. HB.
Coach Eric Lasley has to be excited to be getting a player like Julian Barbour. I know Barbour was listed as a ’21 but he has told KPGFootball he will use his Re-Do to reclassify as a ’22. If he puts up numbers commensurate with the numbers he was on track to put up a year ago, look out! There will be plenty of suitors lining up to get on this prospect’s next-level dance card. Enjoy the article. HB.
It isn’t often a middle school player wins this coveted award. There are middle school players so dynamic, athletic, highly-skilled, and explosive we just can’t help ourselves. This kid here is a ’25 “Mr. Football Candidate” we wager. We thought he could use some protein enriched nourishment. Enjoy this look at one of Kentucky’s very best at his level of play, Austin Alexander from Florence, Kentucky. HB.
We thought it would be fun to see how many of the AP All-Staters were former Future Stars. So, without further adieu, here is the 2020 Kentucky All-State Football Team (AP) with the Future Stars in bold. HB.
