@c_pennington10, c/o ’22 QB committed to @HerdFB is filling the Friday night air with footballs. @sayrespartans @lexsayrefb @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball

Being a Pennington isn’t easy. Being a Pennington headed to Marshall to play QB will prove to be even more challenging. So far Cole Pennington has performed excellently and led a new program to unprecedented heights in 1A’s toughest district. Enjoy this feature about an acorn which didn’t fall too far from its tree.

Ethan Gough from @SrHighFootball; in @KyHighFootball are ‘Goughs’ ever really freshmen? @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @1776Bank @AGLOADING26

What do you do when you are joining a roster your big brother just left as the school’s all-time, career tackler. Ethan Gough would say just take his number and show everyone you can play a little football too. That is exactly what Ethan “Big E” Gough is doing. Better watch out Red Devil opponents, there’s more to come from a No. 26 named Gough on that Senior High team going forward. KPGFootball is glad to be well position to enjoy the ride! Enjoy the feature. HB.

Is this the face of Kentucky’s best two-way, ’26 lineman? For our money it is… @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @1776Bank @bchsbaby @BreathittCoach @SawyerHall19

The words, “the best…” can get thrown around and excessively used. No outfit is anymore aware of this than we. In the end, it amounts to a bunch of hyperbole and little more most times. However, every now and then the term is used and appears accurate. This may well be one of those times. Enjoy the feature. HB.

The Independence Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week Award is among the commonwealth’s oldest and most respected weekly awards. Of course, Mr. Football is the ultimate award for any high school player in Kentucky to win. It is a huge honor just to be in the running. This week’s Revolutionary Player has been named to the preseason “Watch List” for Mr. Football. That is quite an honor. So is winning this. The details about why he has been so honored by us today is within this feature. Enjoy and join us next week as we award another distinction to another worthy middle or high school player. HB.

Twenty-five’s “Fantastic-Five;” Five (5)-Frosh Hitting the Field for their teams this Fall! @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @1776Bank @KyHighFootball

Here are five (5) freshmen we believe will play this coming year. Some of these guys play for lower level teams which routinely challenge for titles at the respective classifications and others play for teams playing in large classifications where freshmen rarely see Friday Night action. All five of these guys here are just too good not to play, and therefore, we are saying they definitely will. Enjoy the feature. Get ready for the coming season! HB.

@ShyhiemDrew from @DunbarBulldogs1 maybe the ‘best kept secret’ in Lexington, KY. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @1776Bank @MaxPreps

It would be hard to imagine a prospect at either WR or OLB in Kentucky’s ’22 class who more “looked the part” than Shyhiem Drew. At 6-5, 210-pounds with tons of athleticism and length, he certainly looks the part of a “big-time” football star and prospect. His performance, thus far, hasn’t been what one would expect but we believe his best football is ahead of him. A college will give him the opportunity to hone his skills, either on the hardwood or the gridiron, and if properly developed some lucky school will be getting quite a catch. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@vpalladino_5 from @Tomcat_football better come ready to carry the load in ’21! @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps @1776Bank

They just keep reloading at programs like Ashland-Blazer. Vinnie Palladino is poised to step up and take the reins in the offensive backfield and continue his defensive contributions too. He will be recruited heavily in the coming year and will end up playing collegiately is our educated guess. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@kadenmoorman4 from @FranklinCoHS is the @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week! @minguabeefjerky @BadgerFootball @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps

This kid has to be the number one or two athlete in Kentucky’s ’23 class of high school prospects. That is why it was shocking we have never before awarded him this coveted title. Well, Independence Bank and we thought we might do something about that this week! Enjoy this feature. HB.

@ashton_adams14 from @MasonCoFootball is the @minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer of the Week. @PrepSpin @CentreFootball @MaxPreps @1776Bank

Mingua Beef Jerky appears to really appreciate versatility. Maybe that is the reason its superior product comes in a variety of forms and in many different delicious flavors. Ashton Adams reminds us of a guy who won this prestigious award for his play in ’20, Breathitt’s Lane Weddle. Adams adds so much production and value to his roster and lineup. Colleges are taking notice. Enjoy this feature. HB.
