Storm Warning: How fast does KJ Hayes hit the field for the Storm? @HopkinsCentral @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps @1776Bank @_CoachManning

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.

Jacob Savage, 2026 LB/RB/ATH from Ryle High School, is the @minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer of the week @Ryle_Football @jacobsavage2125 @1776Bank @840WHAS @KyHighFootball

May 22, 2024 Fletcher Long 0

Jacob Savage is one of a bevy of superstar LB’s in the ’26 class around Kentucky. Savage is so much more than just a LBer as he is among the top RBs on his team and receivers too. In an offseason where we have focused on versatility, this Savage cat is just right in line with the type talent on whom we have been focusing this offseason. Enjoy this feature and don’t forget to #SavorTheFlavor. Friday Night Fletch.

“He’s just a punter!” That sentiment will get you beat in a football game. It will literally cost you a championship one day, we promise. Football is a three (3) phase game and each of the three phases are critical and have to superlatively executed for any team to function at a high level. There have been three punters taken in the first round of the NFL draft. Ray Guy became the first punter ever selected in the first round of a National Football League draft when the Oakland Raiders tapped him as the 23rd player chosen in 1973. Punters are important. This one we are featuring here may be the best punter in his class (’27) across the commonwealth of Kentucky. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch.

Brady Atwell is no stranger to fame. He also is not stranger to this award, having before winning it in August of 2023. He enters ’24 the favorite to win Mr. Football. The contents of this feature should explain that.

Storm Warning: Jaylehn Johnson looks to launch in ’24 @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @HopkinsCentral @_CoachManning @840WHAS @KyHighFootball

May 16, 2024 Fletcher Long 0

Jaylehn Johnson is a versatile athlete who has made the most of his limited appearances on the grid iron. Johnson runs Track & Field and competes in the 400-meter where he clips off that longish sprint in around a minute flat. That isn’t too bad. He should get more opportunities in ’24 and, judging by what he did in limited appearances in ’23, should bode well for our Storm. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch.

Storm Warning: If Isaac brings what he can (physically) to the athletic table, it could me a long (Mc)Knight for Storm Opponents @HopkinsCentral @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps @1776Bank @_CoachManning

Isaac McKnight is a freshman who played 3-games as a freshman in ’23. Notwithstanding the limited run, he still registered 7-tackles, a TFL, and a QB-sack. That is phenomenal, if we are being honest. His production would rocket in ’24. Enjoy this feature and don’t forget to #SavorTheFlavor. Friday Night Fletch.

Kris Hughes is one Bad Bunny @krishughes2026 @BJNFBall @ClayClevenger @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @840WHAS @KyHighFootball

May 14, 2024 Fletcher Long 0

Kris Hughes is one bad bunny. Matter of fact, we can’t find where we have before featured him and that is somewhat alarming to us. Hughes had a tremendous sophomore season for first-year head coach Clay Clevenger and he looks to have the Briar Jumpers back on the title track, if last year’s trip to the semis, and 10-4 finish, are any indication. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch.

Dylan Lee, one of the best athletes playing football anywhere in Kentucky, has his Raiders thinking championship @DylanLee36 @Ryle_Football @RAIDERSPORTSNKY @unionraidersfb @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps @840WHAS

Dylan Lee just finished his sophomore year. It would be difficult to imagine anyone having a better sophomore season than what we just witnessed out of Lee. He is a sprinter on the track team, plays basketball, and was a three-way contributor to a 6A ball club which made it all the way to the regional finals in Kentucky’s largest classification of competition. What will he do as a junior? Sky is literally the limit here. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch.
