Has there been a better RB in the KHSAA over the past several years than Senior, Blake Birchfield. Not for our money! Birchfield has his Panthers knocking on the door of yet another title.

Enjoy this article and don’t forget to make the time to #savortheflavor of the country’s finest all-beef jerky products. HB.
The Tigers chances of repeating as Champions seemed to take a hit when Mitchell Berger went down with season ending surgery. Programs like Beechwood reload, not rebuild. So the Tigers loaded a couple of sophomores in the backfield behind maybe the commonwealth’s elite offensive line and they are right back in the Semis challenging for the program’s third straight 2A title.

Kory Combs is the very picture of guts. That is why this article has the title it does. That is why Combs is so highly regarded among his football playing brethren across the commonwealth. Enjoy this article. HB.
We talk about ‘no doubters’ in football. Those are prospects who come from the middle school ranks likely or even destined to play, and play early, under the Friday Night Lights sometime over the course of their freshman seasons. We are very good at identifying those types. Our track record of correctly calling it before it happens is well documented. Well, Ty Phillips, from Webster County, looks like a ‘no doubter’ to us. Enjoy the feature. HB.
There are numerous stars ladening the LCA football roster and some “up and comers” of whom you may not even know presently destined to be stars.

We promise you, we dug harder to get this article published than any college coach is going to work to find him or any other “under the radar” player out in the commonwealth. Enjoy the feature and try to learn something. HB.

Now he takes his game to a larger stage and to the brighter lights of Andy Frye Stadium.
We have awarded some tremendous jerky products to some outstanding football players since the award’s inception. We have never awarded this prize package to a better football player than Harris Phelps from Paintsville, Kentucky. Playing 1A football kills kids chances of getting recruited at some levels of football and that is senseless. Where a family chooses to live and in what type environment the family chooses to rear a family, be it a small town or large one, has NOTHING to do with what kind of athlete or player the kid develops into being. This kid proves this as well as any. Enjoy this look at Harris Phelps and don’t forget to get out and buy a big bag of Mingua Beef Jerky. Life is short, so #savortheflavor!
