If you like fishing stories, @HanoverFTBL dipped into Kentucky waters to see @Coach_Jay53 hook a doozy of prize in @ajoppel5. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

You talk about dipping your bait in Kentucky waters and pulling out a whale of a prospect, that is exactly what Hanover College appears to have just done with Austin Oppel from Meade County. Congratulations all the way around here. Enjoy this victory lap of an article. HB.

@_reecejr (Reece Jesse Jr., Hopkinsville High) reports commitment to @UofLFootball

He has consistently been ranked among Kentucky’s finest and just completed a career at Class 4A Hopkinsville absolutely supportive of his rankings. Reece Jesse, Jr., with many options to go away and play Division I, FBS football far away from home has elected to stay home and be a Louisville Cardinal. Good luck to this young man we have enjoyed getting to know and watch play over the course of his fine high school career.

@willmcdaniel_ from @BCRebelFootball comes off the board, commits to @CentreFootball

There are some schools around Kentucky absolutely feasting on in-state football talent in filling out the programs’ football rosters. We couldn’t be happier about it. Some real ‘prime-timers’ are finding considerable value in pursuing options other than waiting around and hoping there is room left for them at the heel of some bigger school’s football program during these uncertain, unchartered times. Because of this, some D-1 skill sets are finding their way into the student bodies of some prestigious academic institutions and on the rosters of some prestigious football programs. In-state college football play will absolutely benefit. Many area schools are already nationally ranked at their levels of play. These kids stand the chance to really benefit too. Enjoy this article.

@WilsonPendleton from @ryleraiderfball prime example of an all-state caliber player flying under the radar. @Minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

There is a reason we never get too riled up about whether this guy or that guy made this team or that. There is no way to get them all. There are whole parts of Kentucky which always seem to get the short-shrift on postseason Kentucky-wide teams and Northern Kentucky is one of those. Mighty good football played up there and some very fine players. This guy here is no exception. Enjoy the article. HB.

@LCAFootball2020 and @CoachDCharles would probably tell you there was nothing ‘freshman-ish’ about @ParkerChaney9, or his play in ’20. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighSchool @1776Bank

There is nothing about Parker Chaney which looks “freshman-ish.” Of course, after having started all year for a finalist in 2A, he really isn’t a freshman anymore. He’s more like a junior. Enjoy the article. HB.

Kentucky Coaches vote @CamHergott24 from @BHSTigerFBall its “Mr. Football.” @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

Cameron Hergott won the Coach’s “Mr. Football.” He is also a former recipient of the Mingua Beef Jerky’s “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” That should show you the Mingua people know their football! Here is an interesting look in this article about how a “Mr. Football” winner can only be “Honorably Mentioned” on the All-State team published by the same group which voted on “Mr. Football,” KFCA’s members. Enjoy the article. HB.

@russosb_3 heading his class and plenty of other classes too for @SVCoachHiatt’s Wildcats. @Minguabeefjerky, @PrepSpin, @KyHighFootball

We are compiling our Freshman, Sophomore, and even our middle school teams right now. The selection committee is meeting and, when we get done, we are sure we will have teams which please a few, enrage the vast majority, and stimulates a ton of discussion good for the overall health of the game of football. There won’t be much debate should this particular
QB make the team. Read about the year this guy had!

All-State team reflects bigger problem than who did or didn’t make it…

For those of you who pay this site for its unvarnished candor, here you go. The coach’s all-state football team was published yesterday. It generated furious debate and discussion, which is what it is designed to do. There were some grossly undervalued players, there were glaring (and I mean unbelievably glaring) omissions, and there were some selections right on the money. Pretty much the same can be said every time a team gets published. The Associated Press’s team will open nominations in about a month, and will be the last team published, and those wishing to criticize “get ready” because I am quite sure we will screw it up just as badly as the coaches. The debate about whom should have made it over this guy or that, is a healthy one and shows how much the sport means to all of us. That we care is good.

Not voting when you have been sent a ballot. Well, that is not so good. In this article we speak out about a topic on which our commentary was specifically requested. Be careful for what you ask, you might get it.
