@jaylifts_ (Jalen Dunnavan) from @NBEagles_Fball is this week’s @minguabeefjerky “Protein-Packed Performer of the Week.” @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @PrepSpin

When people ask us what we cover during the offseason, as we are strictly a football magazine, we tell them there is lots of stuff to cover offseason. Sevens, Track & Field, baseball, Powerlifting, all of these sports have football players starring in them as well as on the gridiron. Today we are giving some beef jerky to a phenomenal talent but on the gridiron and in the weight room. Congratulations to Jalen Dunnaven from North Bullitt High School on his incredible feats accomplished at this past weekend’s Kentucky Push-Pull Powerlifting Championships. Join us next week as we reward and identify another incredible high school gridiron star. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@Dj_griff15 (David Griffith) from @DeSalesColtsFB is a player who will absolutely explode onto the scene in ’21. @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @PrepSpin

Some of these “Break-out Players” are players many in the Kentucky Press Corp should have already been featuring. This guy here would have to rank among ’22’s top returning players. He has everything you would look for were you recruiting to a Division I program at the LB position. He plays RB too, but we see him in the defensive second level as a collegian. Collegiately, we believe he will be somewhere in either the FCS or FBS. Enjoy the featue. HB.

@omarion_riddick from @toddco_football is the next in our series of ‘Break-out Players’ in ’21. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

Omarion Riddick is a name you should know around the commonwealth of Kentucky. He is a tremendous athlete with a college future though at what level exactly we just can’t accurately predict. He will be fast and tough enough for anyone. Enjoy this look at a “Break-out Player” sure to be on the tip of many reporters’ tongues in ’21. HB.

Noah Mize, class of ’22, from @Football_Hornet is the @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week! @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

Noah Mize is a guy opponents better not sleep on in ’21. This guy figures to be more of a factor this coming fall offensively for the Hornets and was plenty productive in the defensive backfield in ’20. He’s the kind of player around whom successful high school programs build. He’s also this week’s Revolutionary Player of the Week from your fastest growing financial institution in Kentucky, Independence Bank. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@c_pennington10 from @lexsayrefb is this week’s @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @PrepSpin @sayreschool

His is one of the most recognized names in Kentucky football. Largely because his dad, Chad Pennington, who is also the head football coach of the Sayre’s program, played 10-years in the NFL, was a Heisman Trophy finalist for Marshall’s Thundering Herd, and was drafted 18th-overall, as the first QB in the 2000 NFL draft. However, his son’s ability to play the same position is drawing quite a few apt comparisons. Enjoy this look at a feature about the son and not the dad and join us again next week as we feature another outstanding candidate. HB.

@SageDawson from Boyle County, Kentucky looks poised to ‘Break-out’ in ’21. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

We first told you about Sage Dawson in an feature we wrote about Caleb Burns in May of last year. Sage had started under center much of his freshman campaign for the Admirals and had drawn considerable notice then. Well today Sage gets his own feature. Congratulations! Dawson is a guy whose name you will hear more and more on the recruiting trail as he matures and develops. His development and “coming out” party will take place and kick off in Gatlinburg, Tennessee on May 22, 2021 at the Appalachia Prep Combine. Can’t wait to see what he does. HB.

Breathitt’s @Jason_Perry59 is a player who’s sure to ‘Break-out’ though, arguably, he’s already arrived! #Brotherhood @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

He came out of Middle School one of Kentucky’s very finest prospects. His freshman year performance didn’t dampen anyone’s enthusiasm. This kid here is a “Break-out” certainty, and a rocket-explosion straight to stardom near-certainty. He’s worked pretty hard getting the hay up into the barn, now its time to go get paid. Enjoy this feature about one of ’24’s premier players at his positions. HB.
