Cole Hodge has had a sensational career at Christian Academy-Louisville (CAL). He has been a star on the hardwood and the gridiron. The 6’2,” 190-pounder is going to Eastern Carolina to lead its program into college football glory. I get a feeling some in-state schools are going to regret letting this guy get out of Kentucky, mark our words. In the meantime, the Centurions look poised to win a title this year and the Hodge brothers (Cole and Conner) will play a huge part in it. Enjoy this feature and don’t forget to celebrate with us the services, people, and financial products which have caused a revolution in Kentucky’s banking industry. Friday Night Fletch

Franklin County has been knocking on the door of a championship for the last several years. They sit at 13-0 and get to host the semis, which is always considered a huge advantage. Of course, they are hosting the Boyle County Rebels. Uh…that’s not a very good draw. Griffin will have to be at his best, as will the rest of his compatriots.

Isac Earl is a guy who got plenty of run his freshman year, especially for a freshman at QB. This year he took another step toward the player he ultimately will be. This kid is a pretty polished play-maker and is growing into quite the dual threat QB. Enjoy the feature. 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

Boyle’s Geordon Brown with long strike capability as Boyle downs Whitley County 41-6- @Geordon3_ @Brown7G @BCRebelFootball @1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @kyhighs @HLpreps @MaxPreps @840WHAS @sfitz_840whas @evans02_Mike @MontavinQuisen1 @CoachHaddix11

Every one talks about Montavin Quisenberry around the Boyle program and rightfully. However, Boyle has another athlete on its roster clipping off fully automated 10.8-second, 100-meter track times. That converts to a 40-yard dash time of 4.5-seconds (fully automated) which is blazing. This guy has averaged over 30-yards a reception this year and is second on the team in TDs receptions. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch.

Montavin Quisenberry, or “Q” as we call him around our offices, is the best football player in Kentucky’s ’25 graduating class. We have thought this for around three years, since back in his Garrard County days, and he has done nothing to dispel this belief. His night against Frederick Douglass, we felt, was jerky worthy. We could give him this award every week. Enjoy this feature and pop some of Kentucky’s finest jerky products in your mouth and savor the flavor! #SavorTheFlavor! 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

Gatorade’s slogan, or one of them at least is, “Is it in you?” That is a very appropriate question and one which bears on how this kid came to commit to EKU. Hensley’s father was a four year football letterman at EKU and both his parents graduated from EKU. Do you know what is in him other than a legacy to EKU? We think the Gatorade Kentucky High School Player of the Year. Give this man a Gatorade. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch

Middle School Spotlight: Bryson Johnson, the best MS football player in Kentucky, Period! End of dictation-@1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps @minguabeefjerky @840WHAS @evans02_mike @sfitz_840whas @PerryCoCentral @WYMT

This is Bryson Johnson and he is the best football player in 8th-grade anywhere in Kentucky. He forecasts as a LB, most likely, in high school but could find a home in the offensive backfield. His being omitted from ANY middle school all-star, all-state team is a gross omission. Friday Night Fletch.
