@H_Bradley16 from @McCrackenCounty is the @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball @McCrackenHFC

The Independence Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week Award is among the commonwealth’s oldest and most respected weekly awards. Of course, Mr. Football is the ultimate award for any high school player in Kentucky to win. It is a huge honor just to be in the running. This week’s Revolutionary Player has been named to the preseason “Watch List” for Mr. Football. That is quite an honor. So is winning this. The details about why he has been so honored by us today is within this feature. Enjoy and join us next week as we award another distinction to another worthy middle or high school player. HB.

Isaac “Wheels” Turner from @bchsbaby is the @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Performer of the Week.’ @KyHighFootball @1776Bank @MaxPreps @PrepSpin @BreathittCoach

An agent of the magazine was at this scrimmage which was “Meet the Cougars” night at Letcher Central. The Cougars got to meet one of Breathitt’s more potent offensive weapons for the ’21 season in Isaac “Wheels” Turner. Turner was scintillating in this scrimmage and gave a foreshadowing of what kind of threat he poses opposing defenses on the schedule in ’21. Enjoy this feature and join us next week as this gets awarded to another fine recipient. HB.

@KnoxStory from @MHSCardinalsFB looking to #Riseup in ’21. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps @mhscoachjoe

We believe Knox Story from Mayfield will offer the Cardinals some steady and consistent play along the offensive front in ’21. We also believe his ending up a NASA scientist isn’t out of the question either. This is a kid we think will play quality snaps this coming year as we look for Mayfield to #Riseup! Enjoy the feature.

@ShyhiemDrew from @DunbarBulldogs1 maybe the ‘best kept secret’ in Lexington, KY. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @1776Bank @MaxPreps

It would be hard to imagine a prospect at either WR or OLB in Kentucky’s ’22 class who more “looked the part” than Shyhiem Drew. At 6-5, 210-pounds with tons of athleticism and length, he certainly looks the part of a “big-time” football star and prospect. His performance, thus far, hasn’t been what one would expect but we believe his best football is ahead of him. A college will give him the opportunity to hone his skills, either on the hardwood or the gridiron, and if properly developed some lucky school will be getting quite a catch. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@vpalladino_5 from @Tomcat_football better come ready to carry the load in ’21! @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps @1776Bank

They just keep reloading at programs like Ashland-Blazer. Vinnie Palladino is poised to step up and take the reins in the offensive backfield and continue his defensive contributions too. He will be recruited heavily in the coming year and will end up playing collegiately is our educated guess. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@kadenmoorman4 from @FranklinCoHS is the @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week! @minguabeefjerky @BadgerFootball @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps

This kid has to be the number one or two athlete in Kentucky’s ’23 class of high school prospects. That is why it was shocking we have never before awarded him this coveted title. Well, Independence Bank and we thought we might do something about that this week! Enjoy this feature. HB.

@ashton_adams14 from @MasonCoFootball is the @minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer of the Week. @PrepSpin @CentreFootball @MaxPreps @1776Bank

Mingua Beef Jerky appears to really appreciate versatility. Maybe that is the reason its superior product comes in a variety of forms and in many different delicious flavors. Ashton Adams reminds us of a guy who won this prestigious award for his play in ’20, Breathitt’s Lane Weddle. Adams adds so much production and value to his roster and lineup. Colleges are taking notice. Enjoy this feature. HB.

Lucas Hughes from @HoptownFootball is our last break-out player of this offseason… @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

This is a kid who has developed late and is young for his age. He didn’t elect to stay-back under SB-128 so he will graduate as a young senior in the ’22 class. He gets better and better every year and he also keeps getting bigger, badder, and thicker every time we look his direction. We have no problem believing he will have a tremendous, break-out year for the Tigers in ’21. Season’s around the corner, ain’t nothing left but the getting! Enjoy this feature. HB.

Some guys just look the part. Guys like @browncaleb29 from @WoodfordFBall for instance. @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

This guy didn’t get a ton of varsity action over his sophomore year but he did get some. By the end of the shortened season, he was looking more and more like a player the team would, one-day, rely on heavily. We think the time is now. He has put in the work and his frame and dimensions are perfect for where he projects capable of playing. Ladies and Gentlemen, we give you Caleb Brown! Enjoy the feature. HB.
