Carter Guillaume from @StXTigersFB is the @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Performer’ of the Week. @KyHighFootball @1776Bank @PrepSpin @MaxPreps

Two weeks in a row we have awarded this award to an offensive lineman as we award it to Kentucky’s very best offensive center. We won’t apologize. These guys have been doing the dirty work for little to no fanfare for far too long. We believe this guy is Kentucky’s best offensive center in the game today. Enjoy the feature. HB.

Halfway in…how are the ‘hold-backs’ doing? @Minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

It looks like Ky Galbreath is bucking to add his name to that of “Cameron Hergott” on the list of former 21’s, reclassified as 22’s, who have made the reclassification work for (as opposed to against) them. Many others haven’t faired nearly so well. We won’t know for a couple years for sure, but questions are already being asked. Was reclassifying good for players or not? This article may not answer the question but it does take a look at it. HB.

In the Running…Lots of performances around Kentucky-candidates for @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Performer’ award. @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps @PrepSpin

We had another big week and so did these guys we have featured in this weekly series. We believe one of these guys is very likely to win the Mingua Beef Jerky Award this Wednesday. We know this…there isn’t a bad choice in this entire article. Enjoy this look at some of the very fine performances we saw this past Friday night. HB.

Report Card: The Morning After Grade on Our Dirty Dozen Picks… @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighSchool @1776Bank @PrepSpin @MaxPreps

It is one thing to claim being the “best in the business.” We prove it week after week. We have polished off a pair of consecutive 11-1’s. What is even more remarkable is the times we are able to get the score and/or margin pretty close to dead-on. Check out our prediction of the LCA/Pikeville score. Top that!

Payton Cope from Allen County-Scottsville is this week’s @1776Bank ‘Revolutionary Player of the Week.’ @Acope01 @ACSFBCoach @acspatriotradio @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin, @MaxPreps

We have another good one for this week’s Revolutionary Player in Scottsville’s Payton Cope. Okay, technically Independence Bank doesn’t have a Scottsville branch but it has a Bowling Green branch on Scottsville Road. Looks like the commonwealth’s fast growing bank appears headed that direction anyway. Enjoy this feature and join us next week as we will do this all over and gladly. HB.

Lucas Hughes from @HoptownFootball is the @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Player of the Week.’ @PrepSpin @1776Bank @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball

This week’s Mingua Beef Jerky’s Protein-packed performer is OT Lucas Hughes (’22) from Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Sometimes a company which prides itself on selling only the finest cuts of beef needs to recognize the guys up-front who make a living moving meat around a football field. This offensive lineman’s best football is still ahead of him. Enjoy the feature and join us again a week from today where we will do this for the next worthy recipient. HB.

’22’s Lucas Hughes from @HoptownFootball exploded on the @CCHSColonelsFB Friday night and demonstrated why his ‘upside’ has recruiters talking… @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball

We believe in rewarding and reporting on outstanding line play at KPGFootball. We have been sent clips from the performance of Lucas Hughes from Friday night’s game with cross-town, hated rival Christian County and we must confess we were impressed. This 6-4, 270-pound class of ’22 “late bloomer” is showing that the flower which blooms last often blooms longest. Enjoy the feature. HB.
