Bardstown has a Marshall at the controls- @Amonti07 @_K_Young14 @BardstownFootb1 @Coach_Dunn_ @minguabeefjerky @840WHAS @1776Bank @KyHighFootball

Amonti Marshall is among the more versatile athletes running a 4A football team anywhere in the commonwealth of Kentucky. In’23 he threw for nearly a thousand yards (953) and ran for nearly another (862) while being a defensive leader who contributed 9-TFLs and a pair of QB-sacks. He is a 315-pound presser and squats 410. Little wonder this 3.0-GPA student would run 40-yard dashes in 4.6-seconds flat. The Tigers have been preseason picked 5th in Kentucky 4A by NationsElite. Players like Marshall will do that for a coach every time. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch

Leelen Vanover, from Madison Southern High, is (likely) the best lineman in the KHSAA in its 2027 class @Leelen75 @Drake_Jackson52 @coachpayne64 @CoachHarpMS @FBCoachWolf @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @840WHAS @KyHighFootball

Leelen Vanover has been judged one of Kentucky’s top five (5) OL in the high school game we would suppose. We believe it must be an overall ranking because we can’t fathom there being four other freshmen/rising sophomore linemen in Kentucky on par with Vanover. Vanover is 6’2,” 280-pounds of grown looking and he has a 4.0 GPA. He is getting Division-1 looks right now and that attention is only going to get more common and fierce as we move along his high school career. He can play any of the five (5) upfront slots along the offensive line. Enjoy this feature. Friday Night Fletch.

Ballard just another in a long line of Wolverine football stars @Zach_Ballard54 @CoachYong41 @WHHS_Football @CoachVanderpool @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @840WHAS

Zach Ballard is a long, tall drink of water who plays DE mostly now but may thicken into an extremely mobile DT before his playing days are through. He is 6’5,” 225-pound, rail thin edge rushing specialist who plays a considerable amount of time in the opponent’s offensive backfield. If he’s going to be back there that much, might as well invite him into the huddle. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch.

They call him ‘Coen’ @Coen_Taylor2 @FCFlyerFootball @840WHAS @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank

Jacob Taylor is one of two “Taylors” on the Flyers’ roster. The Flyers, under Head Coach, Eddie James, has been among the more stocked and successful rosters at the 4A level of play. Jacob prefers to go by “Coen” and the 5’8,” 165-pounder carries a 4.0-GPA a believes in hear over height. His 45-receptions a year ago indicate his play backs up his hashtags rather well. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch.

Peyton Collins from North Laurel still finding his stride @peyton_collins1 @npcombine @teeroyhowell @NLJAGSFOOTBALL @athletics_nlhs @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @840WHAS

Sometimes a player’s maturation lags behind the player’s frame. This is often true of young bigs who take some time to agile their way into their incredibly large, tall, and long frames. Peyton Collins has a frame which commands respect. With his nearly 7-foot wingspan, 6’7″ of height, and 280-pounds of heft, this guy figures to be among the more recruited linemen in the ’26 graduating class before all is said and done. We are looking for his PT to increase substantially this coming Fall. When his “man muscles and agility” arrives, look out! Friday Night Fletch.
