In the Running…Lots of performances around Kentucky-candidates for @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Performer’ award. @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps @PrepSpin

For the third consecutive week we canvass the commonwealth digging for exceptional performances to highlight and perhaps reward. This week we featured some 21 or so performances, and 26 if you want to count the offensive line from Madisonville who will be tough to beat for any award with their performance from this past weekend. Anyway, here is this week’s “In the Running…” Enjoy the feature. HB.

@coachthomp9 star RB, Malachi Rider, from @pths_football is @1776Bank ‘Revolutionary Player of the Week.’ @minguabeefjerky @KyHighFootball @PrepSpin @MaxPreps

This week’s ‘Revolutionary Player’ may among Kentucky’s most highly decorated and recruited player in the ’24 class at the RB slot. If not the highest, he is certainly among them. He had a tremendous night against the Eagles of Graves County though, regrettably for his teammates and him, in a losing cause. Join us again a week from today and we will do all this once more. HB.

Ethan Gough from @SrHighFootball; in @KyHighFootball are ‘Goughs’ ever really freshmen? @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @1776Bank @AGLOADING26

What do you do when you are joining a roster your big brother just left as the school’s all-time, career tackler. Ethan Gough would say just take his number and show everyone you can play a little football too. That is exactly what Ethan “Big E” Gough is doing. Better watch out Red Devil opponents, there’s more to come from a No. 26 named Gough on that Senior High team going forward. KPGFootball is glad to be well position to enjoy the ride! Enjoy the feature. HB.

Eli Thomas may be our first ’28 to feature on this site. Oh well, gotta start somewhere. This young phenom is a star in the backfield for one of the finer youth programs in the eastern part of Kentucky, the Northfork Lumberjacks. Enjoy this look at a kid whose name is one you will likely hear many times over in coming seasons. HB.

Remembering “C6H0” 100-years later… @minguabeefjerky @CentreFootball @MaxPreps @PrepSpin

Several places on the Centre College campus you will find what appears to be some elemental compound or formula for some substance on the periodic table, “C6H0.” What does it represent? Well, on October 29, 1921 it was the formula for disaster for the Harvard Crimson’s undefeated football team on New York’s “Polo Grounds.” We take a look back at this remarkable game. HB.

@JadairionS (Edge Beast) from @BHSBRUINS is @1776Bank ‘Revolutionary Player of the Week.’ @minguabeefjerky @KyHighFootball @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @Ballard_Sports

This week’s ‘Revolutionary Player’ may be Kentucky’s most highly decorated and recruited player in the ’22 class. If not the highest, he is certainly among them. He had a tremendous night against the Tigers of Hoptown in spite of his not playing as many snaps as opponents will like see from him in succeeding weeks. Join us again a week from today and we will do all this once more. HB.

@jacksivori2, ’22 QB, comes back from injury stronger than ever! @StXTigersFB @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @Maxpreps

Has Jack Sivori proven he’s among the best dual-threat guys in Kentucky in out-dueling Owensboro’s Gavin Wimsatt this past Friday night at Red Devil stadium? We’re not sure. We are sure he has shown himself to be fully restored post-labrum surgery and his high ankle sprain. Enjoy this feature. HB.
