We traveled with Breathitt County to EKU’s Passing League Tournament and were pleased with what we saw. First of all, this isn’t the type of event at which any Bobcat football team is going to be too proficient. It really doesn’t fit with what generally constitutes the strength of the Breathitt attack. That aside, there were some really good things we saw and we thought you would want to know. We have also included some commentary on a Pikeville squad which certainly didn’t disappoint in the performance from the Panthers we got to watch. Enjoy the article.Read more
Anderson County has made the move from 5 to 4A. In Kentucky, the classification in which a team plays is meaningless as we have argued many times previously. Kentucky has good high school teams and bad high school teams and they are all over all 6 of its classifications. Still, Ryan Stratton is one of our top 2021 offensive centers. If you like them big, strong, and imposing, he’ll also be on your board of top players at the position.
Grayson Cook, quietly and while many of us had diverted our attentions, pushed his commitment announcement from the 12th of July to the 18th. Should this be of concern to the team located in Colorado Springs, Colorado? Check out this article as we check in with 2020’s top OLB/DE prospect and what, if anything, his pushing his announcement to the 18th means for the Air Force Academy, or any other school pressing for a commitment from this prospect.
Congratulations to Peyton Caraway for being this week’s Independence Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week. This is a RB/MLB who appears to us to really enjoy playing football and whose role will expand in the absence of Cline, Baldwin, and Miller all being lost to graduation. When you gain 1,038 yards in only 95 carries, which works out to only 7.916 carries a game, you need to be getting the football more anyway. Join us next week for another selection.Read more
This Stewart Williams Company Robertson County Player of the Week is Drake Alsup a player we have before featured but not at the QB position. He is a big-time prospect at WR already sporting offers having to play QB this year to help the team as regular starter, Cameron Swift has been lost for the season. Sometimes the most important players on any team are the ones sufficiently versatile to play more than one place. That certainly sums up Drake well. Enjoy this article brought to you by the fine folks at your locally owned, hometown Stewart Williams Furniture Company. Don’t forget to stop by again next week as we crown another deserving recipient.Read more
Here is a Clarksville area prep player who has opted to play for a Nashville private school football power though he still resides in Clarksville, Tennessee. We have been extolling his virtues as a big-time QB prospect for years and everybody has been trying to make him a LB instead. Well going into his sophomore year it appears we knew about what we were talking this whole time. Enjoy this look at a player whose best football is ahead of him and we mean immediately ahead. Check back in with us next week as we recognize another, worthy, Montgomery County area player brought to you by your friends at the hometown, home-owned, Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys.Read more
This is part three of our three-part series “Wandering through the wasteland…” Today we predict the district winners in Classes 2 and 1A. This concludes our series. I would mention Fletcher Long, formerly a writer here at KPGFootball and now working for Bluegrass Sports Nation called and said some coaches have taken strenuous exception to this analysis. To those offended, I am saddened you take offense. Still, we strive to be true to our craft and our opinion is just
This is part two of our three-part series “Wandering through the wasteland…” Today we predict the district winners in Classes 4 and 3A. Tomorrow, we will conclude the series with the 2A and 1A classifications.
We have wandered through the abyss that is the KHSAA “Dead Period” and into the first day of real preparation[…]
No matter what some key board assassin or self-described football “expert” may write (us included), real football players know each other when they see each other. That is why peer recognition will always mean more to a player than what some pundit may either write or think. As the old joke goes, “One can’t fool a nit-nat.” Everyone is on the Crowdus train and, truthfully, if he played in a locale more known for producing football talent, he would likely
