@jakobebiggerst1 from @DunbarBulldogs1 set to have a tremendous, break-out year! @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

Here is a guy who we believe will become close to a household word around his part of Kentucky this coming Fall. He showed glimpses of what he could do in ’20 but ’21, his junior year, promises to showcase his full capabilities particularly over the course of a full season. Expect this guy to “blow-up big-time!” Remember from where you heard this first. HB.

@BigMicgetbusy from @StXTigersFB is the @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week. @minguabeefjerky @g_mcpeek @EKUWWells @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

This week’s “Revolutionary Player of the Week” is St. Xavier’s Micah Carter. The 6-5, 250-pounder is one of Kentucky’s very best at his position in either the ’23 class or any other. He already has an impressive list of offers and won the Defensive MVP of the EKU Big Man Challenge this past Saturday. Congratulations to Carter and join us again a week from today when we award this to another fine recipient. HB.

The Preseason Top-5 in the 6A-Classification. Warning: surprises herein! @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

This is the final installment of our Preseason Top-5s for each of Kentucky’s 6-classifications. If you think this is easy, then sit right down and write 30-features defending each of the 30-teams you believe to be the best returning in ’21 from a year ago. It takes a ton of time and effort. We hope you enjoy it. Here is our look at 6A. HB.

@Tommyrosenbarg1 (Tommy Rosenbarger) from @StXTigersFB is this week’s @minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer. @g_mcpeek @EKUWWells @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

We were pleased to attend the Eastern Kentucky University Seven on Seven and Big Man Challenge this past Saturday in Richmond, Kentucky. We were so thrilled to get to attend we sent two guys as Fletcher Long and I rode together. We are awarding the OL MVP this award today and this Friday the Defensive MVP will be the “Revolutionary Player of the Week” for Independence Bank. The event was worthy of sweeping the weekly awards. It was just that good. Enjoy this feature and get yourself some of the world’s finest beef jerky today! HB.

@CannonPigskin (Cannon Mackley) from @LexCathFootball looks to be on the rise. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

Cannon Mackley may have only gotten a single night’s varsity burn a year ago but this is a kid we are convinced will factor way more into the Knights’ plans going forward in ’21. Hey, you pay us to find for you the stars of the future before anyone else. We feel we have done that here. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@LucasWyatt8 from @FootballJCHS is set on taking advantage of second chances. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @1776Bank @JCAthletics_

Lucas Wyatt plays for the preeminent offensive line in Kentucky High School football. They are called the “Pancake Platoon” and nobody gets down hill in the run game like the Johnson Central Eagles. Everyone in the stadium knows it’s coming; yet, no one can stop it. Enjoy this feature about a leader along that front stationed at LT but destined to move to guard next level. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@briiiann23 (Brian Thomas, c/0 ’22) from @pths_football (Paducah Tilghman) a big time, 3rd-level defensive prospect! @minguabeefjerky @KyHighFootball @PrepSpin @1776Bank @Lemmingscouting

We just learned Brian Thomas will be back at Tilghman for the ’21 season. If his production should increase proportionately to how it increased from ’19 to ’20, our pick of “The Blue Tornado” at number two in the preseason Class 3A football poll is looking better all the time. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@ArmonTucker from @TrinityHSFB is this week’s @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week. @trinitysports @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

Trinity has before complained we don’t cover them sufficiently. We would beg to differ as we have feature quite a few of its primetime players through the years but we probably don’t write about Kentucky’s most talented roster as much as we could. Of course, we can’t just perpetually feature one team, unless their hiring. Anyway, this kid here will play big-time, college football because of his speed, regardless of what he does or doesn’t do on the football field. Good thing he is good on the football field too. Enjoy the feature and join us next week as we award this to another worthy player. HB.

The Preseason Top-5 in the 5A-Classification. Some stalwarts and a surprise await you! @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

We have been projecting the top-5 team, preseason, in each of Kentucky’s six-classifications. We have been bold in some of our predictions, picking some wild cards we aren’t sure everyone would pick. Here is how we see Class 5A fleshing out. If we didn’t pick your team and you see a district opponent listed among our top-5, that means we don’t think you see round three. Let the water-cooler debates commence. HB.

@jake_nashty (Jake Nash), c/o ’22, from @LexCathFootball is the @minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer of the Week. @PrepSpin @1776Bank @KyHighFootball

We have made it no secret we enjoy publicizing the players who rarely get any publicity, the offensive linemen across Kentucky. Well, if I were putting together a line of scrimmage from all of the linemen across the commonwealth of Kentucky to play a football game, the Big Nashty would be prominently discussed as a starter on this line. Congratulations to him on winning this week’s award and join us next week as we award this to another outstanding player from across Kentucky. HB.
