’26 TE has the tools, the frame, and the skills
We have an agent in the western-end of Kentucky who called us gushing about sophomore TE, Kam Brown. We checked Brown out, and what do you know, he is special. Brown is a 6’4.5,” 205-pound TE with excellent hands and feet (varsity power forward on the basketball team). Brown’s both a sophomore and a three-sport athlete at Marshall County High School (football, basketball, and baseball). When Brown’s strength and power numbers get where they appear headed, this is going to be a top-notch college football prospect very coveted by programs in and around the Bluegrass.HB Lyon, Chief Scout, KPGFootball
Benton, KY: Every now and again, we try to teach the reader a thing or two about Kentucky HS football. This would be one of those times.
There are stars (and DAWGS) on every roster across Kentucky, even the rosters representing programs who don’t meet with very much success. We have seen countless examples of this.
We were on the KY/VA border once, covering a team which only had 11-players on its roster. Their numbers had dwindled to the point they were having to play 8-man, football games though they were still a KHSAA sanctioned team. Not that it matters, but this same team is flourishing presently and has a full accoutrement of players today.
Anyway, we were covering its biggest gate, and money draw of the year, its festival game. Their QB was a stud-muffin. If I could have asked the opposing coach if there was a player on the roster from the school he was playing which he would have liked to take back home with him, it would have been this guy.
Too many times, players on teams that struggle go under-recruited, or even not recruited at all. That is a huge mistake. Some lucky, small college programs stand to get some fantastic talent from spending time scouring for players wherever talent may find itself residing and toiling.
Here at KPGFootball, we intend to make it a little easier for these programs and for you. We’re already looking, always.
Kam Brown is a sensation on a team which tends to struggle in the won/loss column. The Marshalls have been very good before and we believe Coach Etheridge is doing the things required to return.
The Marshalls dropped its opener to 1A power, Bethlehem High, 55-13. For a team playing 5A, 1st-District football in Kentucky, that isn’t good; albeit, Bethlehem is coming off an 8-3 season in ’22.
The Marshalls played Grayson County last night and faired much better, winning 26-20 in Litchfield, Kentucky. This win was important and significant as the Marshalls stepped up considerably in classification (5A, District 4).
What can’t be overlooked is the play of the sophomore TE, Kam Brown. Brown caught 4-passes in the opener for 107-yards receiving. We have some film we would like for you to see.
In this first clip, the big fella gets down field and reels in a one-hander. In the second clip, Brown gets down the field and catches a football away from his body, shielding the defender away from the ball with his length, and makes an excellent grab in traffic.
Both of these catches highlight the type prospect we are discussing here. We were able to talk with the KPGFootball agent we have in the Benton County area. His praise of his guy was both noteworthy and warrants inclusion in this piece.
“Kam Brown is a phenomenal athlete whose strength, power, and mobility are on target with where these aspects should be for a sophomore TE.” Our guy concluded with, “Brown will be a ‘hot-ticket’ for college programs in and around Kentucky going forward. At least, he sure should be!”
