@Zaynehatfield7 from @BelfryFootball1 is the @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” @CraigYeast @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

We thought we would travel east this week and recognize a guy who is among the very best in the ’22 class playing the defense’s 3rd-level. This guy here already has an offer from Kentucky Wesleyan and he is far from through fielding offers. Enjoy reading about one of the Belfry Pirates favorite residents on Pond Creek. Join us next week when we award some more of Kentucky’s finest beef jerky to another worthy recipient. HB.

@TDWilson22 from @CovCathFootball has been offered already by @MT_FB and looks to be leading the ’22s at his position. There is a reason for this…and it’s a good one. @CovCathFBAlumni @mingubeefjerky @PrepSpin @1776Bank

Middle Tennessee came through Kentucky and plucked Wilson Kelly from Boyle County from out of our ’20 class. All he did his first year in Murfreesboro was challenge for a spot in the starting lineup all season. Looks like that worked out well for the Blue Raiders. Well, now they are targeting Trevor Wilson from Covington Catholic. As this feature will demonstrate, targeting him is a good idea. MTSU won’t be the only team to think of it. Enjoy the feature.

He’s Back! @Adrian Stringer6 will “Re-Do” his senior year at @HopkinsCentral. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

Many people around the area considered Adrain Stringer the best QB west of Louisville in HS football in ’20. Many were sorry that his senior season was basically taken from him as the Storm only got 6-games in ’20. Well, Stringer has elected to “Re-Do” his senior year, and as a very young member of the ’21 class, his reclassifying to ’22 looks to be a smart move on his part. In any event, we are sure glad to get to enjoy his on-field performance for another year. How much will he get to play? There is a fine player chomping at the bit for his turn at the wheel in Jaden Brasher. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@HaydenDick_, Class of ’23, from @BJNFBALL is a sure-fire “Break-out Guy” this coming Fall. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

We’ve been sweeping the commonwealth in search of under the radar talent to feature in a series we’re calling “Break-out Players.” Some of these players, arguably, have already burst out onto the scene while others have been skimming along just beneath the surface. Enjoy this look at a rocket on the Briar Jumpers’ roster set to launch in ’21. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@loftonhoward1 (for the second time) from @GHSGatorFball is the @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week! @minguabeefjerky @KyHighFootball @PrepSpin

We featured this guy during the ’20 season after his having a huge game against Logan County. We decided to check back in and see how the rest o the season went for him and were really impressed. This kid is a football player. Enjoy this feature brought to you by the fastest growing bank in the commonwealth, your friends and ours, Independence Bank. HB.

@EliWhite02 (Elijah White) from @CooperFootball is our next “Break-out Player.” @minguabeefjerky @KyHighFootball @1776Bank @PrepSpin

Here is another kid about whom you have likely never heard but from whom we believe you will hear plenty in the coming year. Elijah White is a ’23 guy who has been staffing the stat sheets playing for Class 5A Cooper High School. The Jaguars are mighty glad to have him. In this article you will see why that is. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@jager_burton committed to @UKFootball and from @FDouglassFB is this week’s @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank @coachnatemcpeek

If winning co-Mr. Football from the Associated Press isn’t worth this award and the prizes which come along with it, then what does one possibly have to do? All kidding aside, we have already awarded this distinction to Cameron Hergott so it is only fair Jager should get a T-shirt and some delicious beef jerky too. Enjoy this feature from our friends at the Mingua Beef Jerky Company. HB.

@braynewborn (Braxton Newborn) from @LHS_PanthersFB is a ’22 Panther definitely on the prowl! @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball, @1776Bank

There are all-state caliber players all over the Kentucky high school landscape. Braxton Newborn is a prime example of this. He is one of ’22s most dynamic, two-way performers and one of its surest next-level bets. Enjoy the feature about a kid we both should already know and know well. HB.

@clark_kissick from @WoodfordFBall looks to be another “No-Douter” to us. He also looks to have a very bright future… @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

It is not every day you have rising ninth-grade “Bigs” who appear destined to challenge for early playing time. Then again, not every program has them coming out of MS 6-3, 290, highly decorated at the level of play the player is leaving, and already being followed on Twitter by college programs intent on recruiting the young player in the “not too distant” future. Enjoy this look at an OL who figures to be among the best along the front in his high school graduating class (’25). HB.
