Grayson Cook, quietly and while many of us had diverted our attentions, pushed his commitment announcement from the 12th of July to the 18th. Should this be of concern to the team located in Colorado Springs, Colorado? Check out this article as we check in with 2020’s top OLB/DE prospect and what, if anything, his pushing his announcement to the 18th means for the Air Force Academy, or any other school pressing for a commitment from this prospect.
No matter what some key board assassin or self-described football “expert” may write (us included), real football players know each other when they see each other. That is why peer recognition will always mean more to a player than what some pundit may either write or think. As the old joke goes, “One can’t fool a nit-nat.” Everyone is on the Crowdus train and, truthfully, if he played in a locale more known for producing football talent, he would likely
We love to scour the statistics and then glorify the skill players who compile them. Many of these skill players become our heroes, our kids’ heroes. We forget that Johnny QB or Johnny RB didn’t just run out on the field and run over the defensive 11, single-handily. Someone or 5 particular “someones” have to bust their butts for recognition from only the most knowledgeable few. We love offensive linemen at KPGFootball and Logan Smith is one of our favorites
We have heard thunder only happens when it is raining. We have also heard where there is thunder there is also lightening. Well, opponents of Caudill Middle School have been experiencing some terrible weather over the past three seasons. The two backs we have featured today, Kenyatta “Thunder” Hodge and Brady “Lightening” Hensley, are the most dynamic and productive backfield in Kentucky’s Class of 2024. Enjoy the article. HB.
You know what we encounter at KPGFootball too many times? Parents inordinately anxious about whether their son will be offered a football scholarship. We have talked to many a father on the brink of despair. For some of these fathers, their level of anxiety is both unwarranted and, frankly, ridiculous, if we are being completely honest. Let this article be a lesson to every Kentucky prospect our there with the dream of playing on Saturdays. You keep handling the parts over which you have control and leave the rest to the experts. Your level of football will find you, will invite you to camp, and will want you. It is out there for you. Don’t despair! Enjoy this article about a kid who was considerably anxious but now is entering his senior campaign on top of the world. We always said he would get there, ask him if we didn’t. HB.Read more
Preston Spurlock is one of our favorite players commonwealth-wide and someone we have selected to our All-State team two straight years. He is someone for whom opposing coaches have to plan to contain. Failure to game-plan him is costly. We call him around the Magazine either the Mountain Hit-Machine, or the Leslie County Hit-Man. Yeah, we’re pretty clever. Enjoy this article which will fully explain the high regard in which we hold this guy who will play on Saturdays should
KPGFootball was able to catch up and interview our friend, Anthony White, about his plans for the Atherton football program. This upcoming football season will be his first at the Rebel helm. Of course, we know White by his nickname “Nino” like virtually all of the Louisville area and the Team Kentucky fraternity. We also know him to be a winner. There are bright days ahead for this program. Enjoy this article.
At KPGFootball we admire the players who kind of have to work for stardom and then do. Anthony Johns has a good frame which appears likely to still be lengthening but his is not the best OL frame we have seen. However, his attention and dedication to strengthening, conditioning, and doing even the little things the right way is among the best we have seen. There aren’t any players in the Class of 2022 which work any harder than this
We got a note from someone advocating our doing a feature on this particular player. With his having played on two successful and victorious Team Kentucky Future Stars it was easily time to be featuring him. The person sending us the information said “He may not be feature material, but I think he’s a name worth remembering.” Well, we couldn’t disagree with you more about the first part. We absolutely think he’s “feature material.” In fact, here’s his feature right here. Enjoy the article. HB.Read more
This is part two of a two part series we are calling the “Freshman Fifteen.” These aren’t necessarily the best fifteen football players or prospects in Kentucky but they are fifteen players we believe most likely to play before the 2019 season is over in the varsity lineup. Some will play because the team has specific need where they are slotted and some will play because they are just that good. We published the first 8 players in this series
