Ethan Gough from @SrHighFootball; in @KyHighFootball are ‘Goughs’ ever really freshmen? @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @1776Bank @AGLOADING26

What do you do when you are joining a roster your big brother just left as the school’s all-time, career tackler. Ethan Gough would say just take his number and show everyone you can play a little football too. That is exactly what Ethan “Big E” Gough is doing. Better watch out Red Devil opponents, there’s more to come from a No. 26 named Gough on that Senior High team going forward. KPGFootball is glad to be well position to enjoy the ride! Enjoy the feature. HB.

Breathitt’s Eli Thomas (’28) blazing a difficult trail for others to follow. #NorthforkLumberjacks @minguabeefjerky @KyHighFootball @Maxpreps @PrepSpin Featured photo: James Fugate/for the ‘Jackson Times-Voice’

Eli Thomas may be our first ’28 to feature on this site. Oh well, gotta start somewhere. This young phenom is a star in the backfield for one of the finer youth programs in the eastern part of Kentucky, the Northfork Lumberjacks. Enjoy this look at a kid whose name is one you will likely hear many times over in coming seasons. HB.

@jacksivori2, ’22 QB, comes back from injury stronger than ever! @StXTigersFB @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @Maxpreps

Has Jack Sivori proven he’s among the best dual-threat guys in Kentucky in out-dueling Owensboro’s Gavin Wimsatt this past Friday night at Red Devil stadium? We’re not sure. We are sure he has shown himself to be fully restored post-labrum surgery and his high ankle sprain. Enjoy this feature. HB.

@omarion_riddick from @toddco_football is not only the little engine that can…he’s the little engine that does! Feature Photo: YourSportsEdge @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank @MaxPreps

Omarion Riddick has quietly been producing big-time since transferring to 2A Todd County from 5A Christian County. Riddick tore it up this past Friday night and the casualty happened to be Trigg County’s Wildcats. Didn’t see this one coming, did you? HB.

@JaycobDavis77 from @FCHSPILOTSFB maybe the biggest ’25 in Kentucky! Can @JamesBridgesFC make him the baddest? @minugabeefjerky @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

You won’t find a bigger player in the ’25 class if you scour the entire commonwealth. Jaycob Davis, at 6-4, 405-pounds, will be called upon to play early and often at a 1A program on the western end of Kentucky which produces quite a lot of talent. Enjoy this look at a monster OL prospect who seems to “get it.” HB.

@Daisjaunm1 (Daisjaun Mercer) from @HoptownFootball is the @Minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer of the week! @1776Bank @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball @EKUFootball @EKUWWells @g_mcpeek

The Hoptown Tigers are LOADED! We had an agent at the Tigers scrimmage with Class 6A McCracken and they came away impressed. Their words reporting back to the office at the first of the week were, “These guys look all the way back to me…like mid-90s back!” That is saying quite a bit. It also means we likely had a serious omission from our preseason Top-5 in the 4A classification. However far the Tigers go this coming season, they will lean heavily on Daisjaun Mercer, this week’s award recipient for the reasons we have detailed herein. Friday night we have season openers so this is our last offseason award. It is all over but the crying now. Join us next week as we give this award to another worthy recipient. HB.

Better climb aboard Bulldogs, ’21 is your last opportunity to ride the “Night Train.” @TrellNighttrain (Martrell Horton) is pulling out of the @Dawgs_Athletics station for its final run! @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @CoachWatson11

His is one of Kentucky High School football’s better nicknames. Enjoy this feature about Martrell “Night Train” Horton. Horton is one of the more dynamic and explosive players in Kentucky 5A football particularly in Louisville. Horton plays for Fairdale High School and the Bulldogs figure to be quite good again in ’21. HB.

Is this the face of Kentucky’s best two-way, ’26 lineman? For our money it is… @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @1776Bank @bchsbaby @BreathittCoach @SawyerHall19

The words, “the best…” can get thrown around and excessively used. No outfit is anymore aware of this than we. In the end, it amounts to a bunch of hyperbole and little more most times. However, every now and then the term is used and appears accurate. This may well be one of those times. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@PrestonBC00 from Boone County a young ‘up and comer’ with plenty of potential. @BCHS_Rebels1955 @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

Right off the bat you have to love the personality of any lineman who choses to wear “00” as a number. This is a young ’26 prospect who has the type of frame which indicates there is literally no telling how big he gets in the end. He seems to have plenty of length and good feet and athleticism right now, which is something you don’t always find in “bigs” his age. Enjoy the feature. HB.
