Report Card: The Morning After Grade on Our Dirty Dozen Picks… @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighSchool @1776Bank @PrepSpin @MaxPreps

It is one thing to claim being the “best in the business.” We prove it week after week. We have polished off a pair of consecutive 11-1’s. What is even more remarkable is the times we are able to get the score and/or margin pretty close to dead-on. Check out our prediction of the LCA/Pikeville score. Top that!

Payton Cope from Allen County-Scottsville is this week’s @1776Bank ‘Revolutionary Player of the Week.’ @Acope01 @ACSFBCoach @acspatriotradio @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin, @MaxPreps

We have another good one for this week’s Revolutionary Player in Scottsville’s Payton Cope. Okay, technically Independence Bank doesn’t have a Scottsville branch but it has a Bowling Green branch on Scottsville Road. Looks like the commonwealth’s fast growing bank appears headed that direction anyway. Enjoy this feature and join us next week as we will do this all over and gladly. HB.

Lucas Hughes from @HoptownFootball is the @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Player of the Week.’ @PrepSpin @1776Bank @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball

This week’s Mingua Beef Jerky’s Protein-packed performer is OT Lucas Hughes (’22) from Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Sometimes a company which prides itself on selling only the finest cuts of beef needs to recognize the guys up-front who make a living moving meat around a football field. This offensive lineman’s best football is still ahead of him. Enjoy the feature and join us again a week from today where we will do this for the next worthy recipient. HB.

’22’s Lucas Hughes from @HoptownFootball exploded on the @CCHSColonelsFB Friday night and demonstrated why his ‘upside’ has recruiters talking… @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball

We believe in rewarding and reporting on outstanding line play at KPGFootball. We have been sent clips from the performance of Lucas Hughes from Friday night’s game with cross-town, hated rival Christian County and we must confess we were impressed. This 6-4, 270-pound class of ’22 “late bloomer” is showing that the flower which blooms last often blooms longest. Enjoy the feature. HB.

Chase Mims from @BLESbobcats is the @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Player of the Week.’ @PrepSpin @1776Bank @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball @BLESbobcats @jammin_jamey @WMDJFM100Sports @DavidandDarryl

We went a little off-script this week. For the first time since the award was incepted, we awarded the prize to a player whose information wasn’t included within the Monday article, “In the Running…” Hey, we have to keep people honest and mix-it-up occasionally. Anyway, enjoy this look at one of Kentucky’s undiscovered diamonds in the rough, Betsy Layne’s Chase Mims, 6-5, 215-pound QB and class of ’22 standout! HB.

@c_pennington10, c/o ’22 QB committed to @HerdFB is filling the Friday night air with footballs. @sayrespartans @lexsayrefb @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball

Being a Pennington isn’t easy. Being a Pennington headed to Marshall to play QB will prove to be even more challenging. So far Cole Pennington has performed excellently and led a new program to unprecedented heights in 1A’s toughest district. Enjoy this feature about an acorn which didn’t fall too far from its tree. HB.
