It is getting time for the now former 8th graders to report to their varsity teams. The Storm, when opening camp, will certainly have some prime timers joining them from middle school looking for PT. KJ Hayes will be one of them. As the reigning KYMSFA, Region I, Division I, Player of the Year, it wouldn’t surprise many to see this kid in the lineup early in his HS career. Enjoy the feature.

This isn’t the story of a simple friar who became the patron saint of one of the larger metropolitan areas in the state of California. Ours is a story about a simple sophomore who entrenched himself in the lineup of the most storied and successful 2A football program on the western end of Kentucky. We hope you like our story as well as the other one. Friday Night Fletch.

Storm Warning: Charles (Dylan) Beringer hoping to make the surname famous for more than wine @beringervyds @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @840WHAS @HopkinsCentral @KyHighFootball

We have been focusing on versatility this offseason and Charles “Dylan” Beringer fits that bill. Beringer plays along the OL and the DL and appears to run track and cross country. He may be called upon to contribute mightily in ’24 along the varsity lines of scrimmage. Let’s see if he will be up to that challenge. Friday Night Fletch.

The Colonels continue to amass a coaching staff which is the marvel of many around the western part of Kentucky. Coach Greenwell will be using technology to improve individual, team, and staff performance. He’s been doing it at Trinity High and they seem to be doing alright. Enjoy the feature.

Breaking News Story: CCHS brings back Greg Abren; Atchley continues commitment to adding former Colonels to staff @ColonelFootball @CoachAtchley @ThinLizzy_ @840WHAS @1776Bank @minguabeefjerky @Christian_Co270

Coach Atchley continues to add to his staff at Christian County as the two area high schools march toward consolidation. The new Colonel head man appears bent on bring back on staff coaches from the not too distant past who remember what a championship caliber program resembles. Getting back Greg Abren goes a way towards bring back the program’s swag. Friday Night Fletch.

We take a deep dive into the matchup between Paducah Tilghman and Covington Catholic upcoming this Friday night in the semi-state. The game is being played in Park Hills, KY and we have broken down the relevant subparts to answer the equation (we believe anyway). Enjoy this “deep dive” into the matchup. We didn’t put in many pictures, this is a “meat and potatoes” article and not one for an unserious, high school, football fan. Enjoy, Friday Night Fletch

It isn’t uncommon for players to play high school football for their dads. Matter of fact, 1956 Heisman, runner-up, and College Football Hall of Famer, Johnny “The Drum” Majors, played for his dad in high school (Shirley Majors) at Huntland High. Often, as was the case in the Majors’s situation, the son is the dad’s very best player. Mike Marksbury has done a wonderful job at Spencer County. One has to wonder how much his son, Kellen, has done to further dad’s coaching career. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch

Williamsburg High has a ‘Goodin’ at QB and he is back next season- @WhsJacketPride @1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @kyhighs @HLpreps @MaxPreps @HopkinsCentral @840WHAS @sfitz_840whas @evans02_Mike

Nate Goodin is among the more productive dual-threat QBs in the mountains and plays for, historically, one of its stronger programs. Williamsburg hasn’t been as good this year as they have been in others but, they are young, and with talent like Nate Goodin around, the Yellow Jackets figure to be in the mix going forward. Of course, the young Jackets, coached by Jerry Herron, Jr. have to attempt to survive a trip to Pikeville, Kentucky in round two. That trip to Pikeville has taken down a many Yellow Jacket football team in years gone past. Friday Night Fletch

Anyone hoping to get past Bracken County and the Polar Bears would do well to avoid the Tarter Sauce- @TarterDaulton @brackencounty @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @kyhighs @HLpreps @MaxPreps @evans02_Mike @840WHAS @sfitz_840whas

We love to come up with something clever in the title. Daulton Tarter’s name lends itself to “Tartar Sauce” references easily and we decided to go with that. I wanted to make a “Steak Tartare” reference but Coach Lyon pointed out the spellings were significantly different. Coach Lyon really enrages me some days. Enjoy this feature. Friday Night Fletch
