A subscriber contacted us and asked us whether Caudill Middle School’s 2019 football team which just won its second, consecutive KYMSFA football championship is the “best middle school team” to ever take a Kentucky football field. It is an interesting question and one which we discuss at some length in this article. Enjoy!

Gough is used to doing things well before anyone thinks he can. He started at one of Kentucky’s premier high-school programs as a freshman, he set the school’s single-season tackle mark as a sophomore, he made the AP All-State Football First-Team as a sophomore. The list just never seems to end. When he broke his leg the projections were he would be through for the year. Well, in keeping with Gough tradition, he was cleared to return to action in

The two players we are featuring together in this article are two guys who both relocated to Jackson, Kentucky (as luck would have it) during this summer. Both of their parents found employment in the area and uprooted their respective families. The Collins family has long-standing ties to Breathitt County High School as the Collins boys prior to CA Collins all played at Breathitt. The Longs had never been to Jackson, Kentucky before finding employment in the area and deciding to locate there. It has worked out swimmingly for a team which no media outlet predicted would do much in 2019 but which is absolutely killing it with considerable contribution from the two guys who have (naturally) bonded. Individually they are “CA Collins” and “William Long” but together they spell Double-Trouble for Breathitt opponents.Read more
It is getting time to start thinking about All-State selections. When it comes to voting on the All-State team (AP), we nominate guys positionally for inclusion. What we mean by that is when the AP asks for five linemen we nominate a center, two guards, and two tackles. The way we treat it is who would we want if this mythical team were going to play a game against another team and we really, really wanted to win. When we are asked for 4 defensive linemen, for instance, we give two DEs and two interior guys for the mythical defensive line. We nominate two safeties and two corners for the back end, so on and so forth. Our criteria is a simple one, our first team player would have to be good enough to transfer anywhere in Kentucky and be first team wherever he landed at the position at which he is being nominated. With that as a working criteria, which isn’t going to change, we will feature, from now through the opening of the ballot, players we believe fit that bill. We will start with a DE from Anderson County for which there will be little to any debate.Read more

Everybody in Kentucky is talking about Boyle County’s Reed Lanter or Beau Allen from Lexington Catholic and those guys are fantastic. However, don’t forget about a guy who QB rating is probably the very best in the commonwealth and who has his team in the mix, week after week, for so long as he has been under its center. Drew Hartz is an exceptional performer and one for whom a feature is WAY OVERDUE. Enjoy the article.
Reece Jesse is killing it out there for the Tigers as they head into their 5th game. This game is against the cross-town rivals, Christian County, who is winless on the year. If the Colonels can’t solve the Jesse-riddle regarding how to keep him from beating them, they will leave Friday night remaining “winless.” You can throw the records out the window when these two play. KPGFootball will have someone in Hopkinsville watching the game for us. Matter of fact,
Colleague of mine called me just yesterday and asked if I had heard about the game between Jordan Miles (Trigg) and Joshuah Keith (Todd) I asked him, “Are you serious? What kind of an outfit do you think we’re running over here?”
Hey, when two of the best football players in Kentucky’s 2024 class lock-horns, KPGFootball is going to be there. The result of the confrontation was gloriously played football played between two very fine football teams.Read more
