Throughout the season we pick weekly winners. It was one of our more popular segments a year ago. This year we will decide which games we cover based on our “hits.” Read us, you get covered. Ignore us, we ignore you. These are some Friday night match-ups in areas where we get a lot of views. This week we thought we might enliven things by focusing on 20 games from areas where we have the most subscribers. We haven’t pulled
Here’s a player with incredible length and frame to play right where Breathitt has him deployed. Want to know why the Bobcats’ defense is being raved about all over the Bluegrass? Having a 6-5, 240-pound DE with incredibly long arms and upper-level mobility sure doesn’t hurt. Read about this prospect playing on one of the hottest teams in Kentucky’s young 2019 football season this year. HB
We at KPGFootball are, once again, very pleased to represent our readers and subscribers as voting members of the Associated Press here in Kentucky. The following is this week’s top 10 polls in all six Kentucky high school classifications.Read more
How does a Georgia State beat a Tennessee in Knoxville and not just beat the Volunteers, but dominate them? Well, it starts by requiring the coaching staff to select the team’s roster and not out-sourcing it to some recruiting service which is assigning stars to the players they find the prettiest and most statuesque. Football isn’t a track meet or a fashion show, it is about blocking, tackling, running between the tackles, getting down hill, and other things unrelated to how one looks. It is a contact sport played by tough guys. We used to know that, and at Georgia State, they appear to still know it.Read more
Old Coach got to feature a player today from Decatur, Tennessee even though it is well outside our coverage area. If it gets us a few new members or nets us a tremendous amount of “views” they might let me expand our coverage area a bit and get more of these type players from the East Tennessee area. Enjoy this article about Luke Pendergrass.
When Cary Fowler called Dre Boyd’s performance one of the all time single game performances in Kentucky high school football history, we thought he had lost his mind. In looking back on the night statistically, we would have to agree. Man, did Dre Boyd ever lay out an all-time performance this past Friday night. Makes one wonder how he figures to do the rest of the year. Enjoy the article.
There are predictions of which you are so sure you want to remind everyone of what you before said just so they won’t forget where they first heard it. In January of 2019, we predicted Bridger Knee would be a day one, snap one defensive, down-lineman starter for the Purples in 2019. On the brink of kickoff, we thought we would remind everyone what we said in January. That’s how confident we are in our being right (and first). Enjoy
They call minor league teams supplying the majors with talent a “Farm system.” You will see writers who cover MLB talk about news “Down on the Farm.” We have borrowed from that principal for this weekly segment on outstanding performances from middle school stars who will shortly be starring on Friday night. Believe me, their time will be here before you can possibly. believe. Enjoy this regular, in-season, look at what is going on down on the farm. HB.
With the season right upon us, we like looking at the freshman from around the commonwealth of Kentucky we think will see the field early. We think Colton Feese is someone sure to hit the field early and probably at QB with the departure of senior Grant Wilburn from Russell last season, and possibly immediately. They really are going to need help at QB for Russell to experience the same type season it enjoyed in 2018 this coming year. When
This Stewart Williams Company Robertson County Player of the Week is Austyn Day, a 2021 player at Springfield High School who gets to be the most popular player on this or any team. However, he is one step away from being on the field full-time and the junior has gotten plenty of prep-time in SHS’s scrimmages. Enjoy this look at Springfield’s second string QB and join us next week as we look to recognize another Robertson County worthy player.Read more
