@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.

@TylerMo21734318 (Tyler Moore), Class of ’22 from @PurplesFootball is the @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @CoachSpader

High School football has always had undersized, over-achievers glorified for what they can contribute to their high school football teams in front of the hometown fans. Tyler Moore is a slightly undersized kid, frame-wise, for where the Purple play him but his production is nothing short of D-1. This kid would be a brilliant pick-up for quite a few in-Kentucky, college programs. He’s our kind of guy because he gets the absolute most out of every gift the good Lord game him. This is what makes him our Revolutionary Player of the Week. Congratulations!

@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.

@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.

@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.

@TOP_SMOKE55 (Davon “Smoke” Rudolph) from @duPontFootball is the @1776Bank ‘Revolutionary Player of the Week.’ @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

This young man intends to “bring the smoke” this season for the duPont Manual Crimsons. One thing is for certain, Scott Carmony’s ball club is never hurting for athletic talent, and next season will be no exception. Join us again next week as we crown another worthy recipient. HB.

@EastonMesser from @centurions_fb is the @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week. @CenturionAD @PrepSpin @minguabeefjerky @KyHighFootball

This week’s recipient is simply among the hottest in-commonwealth prospects in all of Kentucky presently. With his academic performance, particularly where he has performed, expect him to fetch offers other athletes can only dream of getting. Kid is a true 4.4-second forty, you don’t see those very often playing HS football in Kentucky. Enjoy the feature and join us next week when another worthy recipient is similarly honored. HB.

@dbutler105 (Dustin Butler) from Hart County is the @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer” of the Week. @CurtisB05159591 @1776Bank @HartCountyFball @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

Here’s a guy who is a star in the ’21 class but who is young enough to stay back and reclassify as a ’22 player. There is at least one college football program we have consulted who would like to see him reclassify and would like to take a run at him should he decide to do so. This guy has D-1 skills. He has an ample frame. He has a huge brain. There are lots of possibilities for Butler on the next level. Enjoy this look at this week’s “Protein-packed Performer,” Hart County’s Dustin Butler. HB.

@JadairionS from @BallardFball is the @1776Bank “Revolutionary Player of the Week.” @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

Jadairion Smith is among the very elite recruits at his position nationally. He is also listed among the elite Kentucky ’22s which goes without saying. Independence Bank like to both seek out and recognize the very best among Kentucky high school athletes and this young man certainly qualifies. Enjoy the feature and join us next week as we award this to another worthy recipient. HB.

@AndrewH77762733 (Andrew Hardwick) from @BCRebelFootball is the @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer” of the Week. @1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @BoyleRebelsTF

Again with the big guys? What can we say, these big boys are hungry all the time. We promise we will get to some skills as we go along toward the opening of the football season in the Fall of ’21. While recognizing the bigs however, how about this big boy right here? He’s Andrew Hardwick and may be among the best linemen in Kentucky’s class of ’23. Enjoy the feature and join us next week as we award this to another worthy recipient. HB.
