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.

@AdrianStringer6 from @HopkinsCentral is this week’s Revolutionary Player selected by @1776Bank, the fastest growing financial institution supporting @KyHighFootball anywhere in the commonwealth. @jaden_brasher @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin, @MaxPreps @RAugsdorfer

This week’s recipient is someone who, if he hasn’t won this award yet, we have to wonder what has taken us so long to distinguish his play? He is a reclassified senior and is putting up the type production for which he is known. He is considered among the very best at his position on the western end of the commonwealth and we are very pleased to honor him today. Enjoy the feature and get on by to see your friends at Kentucky’s fastest growing financial institution, Independence Bank. Independence Bank boasts the service and products which are causing a revolution in the banking industry. Join us next week as we get the privilege of honoring another worthy recipient. HB.

With Friday night upcoming, we picked a ‘dirty dozen’ of games and even provided, for the curious, the likely score. @minguabeefjerky @prepspin @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball

The Dirty Dozen is one of the greatest of all the cowboy movies. In honor of that film, KPGFootball decided to pick twelve outcomes from twelve big rivalry matchups upcoming tomorrow night. We used to do this all the time pre-COVID. Let’s see how we do. HB.

@KrisHughes04 from @UCBraves is the @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Player of the Week.’ @PrepSpin @1776Bank @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball @UCHSathletics @UnionCoSchools

Guys who find multiple ways to mightily contribute to the team’s victory in more than one phase of the game always seem to impress our voters. This week we picked a guy who could have won this award based off of what he did offensively, standing alone, or what he did on special teams, standing alone. Taken together, it was just too much not to notice. Union County is absolutely red hot and looking over the remaining schedule it looks difficult to forecast a slip up down the stretch. We could be looking at a 10-0 ball club entering the playoffs. If that occurs, today’s recipient will have played a major part in that happening. HB.

@MCentral_FB hacking its way back up the ladder. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @1776Bank @KenyattaHardge #RollTribe @BradyHensley12 @coopermmullins

Many of you have read “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll. That novel introduced many of us to the character, the Cheshire Cat, who is most known for his mischievous grin. There is another mischievous grin around the Richmond, Kentucky area and he has plenty of reason to be grinning. His team is playing very well and may finish strong enough to come away with some 8th-District, Class 6A hardware. Enjoy the feature. HB.
