We’ve been bringing it to you all year long. We will break down the Friday and Saturday articles in separate pieces. Easier for the digestion. Here is how we see the first three unfolding. Enjoy this article. 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
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
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
I will always remember 2024 and the season which provided fans plenty of suspense and thrills. It will always stand out to me of the “season which could have been.” Enjoy this look back at the year and look forward to stomping the ever-loving, gob-sobbing, crap out of Fulton County tomorrow night. Friday Night Fletch
Trigg County has a hoss middle school team led by a hoss. You may not remember Coach Taylor McGee but he was an All-State player for Trigg County High, broke the Kentucky Powerlifting Meet bench press record (at the time) competing in the sport’s Heavyweight Division (435-pound bench), played in college at KENTUCKY WESLEYAN, and is now coaching the Middle School Wildcats where he has enjoyed unparalleled success at the helm. Enjoy this feature about a team certainly one of the more talented competing at the middle school level anywhere across the commonwealth. Friday Nigh Fletch
Lexington Christian Academy (LCA) is tracking that title this year in 2A and the Eagles have all the flight power needed to walk off Kroger Field very, very happy. The strength of the team isn’t subsumed in its passing attack. LCA has (perhaps) the best rushing attack in Kentucky’s high school game. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch
Ballard certainly knows something about developing top-flight talent at DE. Remember Jadairion Smith? We sure do. Ballard is now 6-3 with Woodford County remaining and Mikel Clack is the new “Jadairion Smith.” Clack leads the commonwealth in sacks and has a long frame, albeit slight, but he can really move. Ballard is staring down the barrel of a 7-3 finish, and with the 7th-highest RPI in the class, the 6A, 5th district Bruins hope to host to host an opening game. Friday Night Fletch
Bryce Button, a ’25 QB at South Warren in Bowling Green, KY, over the first seven (7) games of this ’23 season has been the very picture of Swiss-made precision. Last week he completed close to 80% of his passing attempts and threw for four (4) TD’s against 0-picks. Regardless of college potential, and he has his fair share, this kid is a dynamite high school football player. Enjoy the feature and celebrate with us the services, people, and financial products which have caused a revolution in Kentucky’s banking industry. FL.
