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

Middle School Spotlight: Bryson Johnson, the best MS football player in Kentucky, Period! End of dictation-@1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps @minguabeefjerky @840WHAS @evans02_mike @sfitz_840whas @PerryCoCentral @WYMT

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 from McLean County High in Calhoun, Kentucky is the @1776Bank, Revolutionary Player of the Week- @minguabeefjerky @evans02_mike @_CoachManning @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps @sfitz_840whas @840WHAS @McLeanSportsNet @MCHSCoach

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. 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

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.

Jamari Pennebaker from Holy Cross (Louisville) is the @minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer of the Week- @1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @kyhighs @HLpreps @MaxPreps @HopkinsCentral @840WHAS @sfitz_840whas @evans02_Mike @HCougs_Football @CoachEricDick

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

Brady Hensley and LCA tracking that title- @Oakley_Watkins @CoachDCharles @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @kyhighs @HLpreps @MaxPreps @HopkinsCentral @evans02_Mike @840WHAS @sfitz_840whas

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 Smokes Eastern, Hopes for Strong Finish in Versailles- @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @kyhighs @HLpreps @MaxPreps @HopkinsCentral @evans02_Mike @840WHAS @sfitz_840whas @Ballard_Bruins

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.
