@c_pennington10 from @lexsayrefb is this week’s @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @PrepSpin @sayreschool

His is one of the most recognized names in Kentucky football. Largely because his dad, Chad Pennington, who is also the head football coach of the Sayre’s program, played 10-years in the NFL, was a Heisman Trophy finalist for Marshall’s Thundering Herd, and was drafted 18th-overall, as the first QB in the 2000 NFL draft. However, his son’s ability to play the same position is drawing quite a few apt comparisons. Enjoy this look at a feature about the son and not the dad and join us again next week as we feature another outstanding candidate. HB.

@SageDawson from Boyle County, Kentucky looks poised to ‘Break-out’ in ’21. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

We first told you about Sage Dawson in an feature we wrote about Caleb Burns in May of last year. Sage had started under center much of his freshman campaign for the Admirals and had drawn considerable notice then. Well today Sage gets his own feature. Congratulations! Dawson is a guy whose name you will hear more and more on the recruiting trail as he matures and develops. His development and “coming out” party will take place and kick off in Gatlinburg, Tennessee on May 22, 2021 at the Appalachia Prep Combine. Can’t wait to see what he does. HB.

Breathitt’s @Jason_Perry59 is a player who’s sure to ‘Break-out’ though, arguably, he’s already arrived! #Brotherhood @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

He came out of Middle School one of Kentucky’s very finest prospects. His freshman year performance didn’t dampen anyone’s enthusiasm. This kid here is a “Break-out” certainty, and a rocket-explosion straight to stardom near-certainty. He’s worked pretty hard getting the hay up into the barn, now its time to go get paid. Enjoy this feature about one of ’24’s premier players at his positions. HB.

@TylerMo21734318 (Tyler Moore), Class of ’22 from @PurplesFootball is the @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @CoachSpader

High School football has always had undersized, over-achievers glorified for what they can contribute to their high school football teams in front of the hometown fans. Tyler Moore is a slightly undersized kid, frame-wise, for where the Purple play him but his production is nothing short of D-1. This kid would be a brilliant pick-up for quite a few in-Kentucky, college programs. He’s our kind of guy because he gets the absolute most out of every gift the good Lord game him. This is what makes him our Revolutionary Player of the Week. Congratulations!

Talk about your guys ready to “Break-out,” you better be watching @BigShaunC_2005 (Shaun Roberts) pretty closely @BCHS_Rebels1955 fans! @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

Shaun Roberts is a powerhouse and a former Kentucky Future Star. He will also have a tremendous year, we are predicting, Breaking-out onto the scene in the Fall of ’21. He is a low-to-the-ground heat seeking missile the “big-boys” always struggle with blocking because he is perpetually playing “below the hands.” Enjoy this look at a guy from whom you will be hearing much, much more. HB.

@Zaynehatfield7 from @BelfryFootball1 is the @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” @CraigYeast @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

We thought we would travel east this week and recognize a guy who is among the very best in the ’22 class playing the defense’s 3rd-level. This guy here already has an offer from Kentucky Wesleyan and he is far from through fielding offers. Enjoy reading about one of the Belfry Pirates favorite residents on Pond Creek. Join us next week when we award some more of Kentucky’s finest beef jerky to another worthy recipient. HB.

@TDWilson22 from @CovCathFootball has been offered already by @MT_FB and looks to be leading the ’22s at his position. There is a reason for this…and it’s a good one. @CovCathFBAlumni @mingubeefjerky @PrepSpin @1776Bank

Middle Tennessee came through Kentucky and plucked Wilson Kelly from Boyle County from out of our ’20 class. All he did his first year in Murfreesboro was challenge for a spot in the starting lineup all season. Looks like that worked out well for the Blue Raiders. Well, now they are targeting Trevor Wilson from Covington Catholic. As this feature will demonstrate, targeting him is a good idea. MTSU won’t be the only team to think of it. Enjoy the feature. HB Lyon.

He’s Back! @Adrian Stringer6 will “Re-Do” his senior year at @HopkinsCentral. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

Many people around the area considered Adrain Stringer the best QB west of Louisville in HS football in ’20. Many were sorry that his senior season was basically taken from him as the Storm only got 6-games in ’20. Well, Stringer has elected to “Re-Do” his senior year, and as a very young member of the ’21 class, his reclassifying to ’22 looks to be a smart move on his part. In any event, we are sure glad to get to enjoy his on-field performance for another year. How much will he get to play? There is a fine player chomping at the bit for his turn at the wheel in Jaden Brasher. Enjoy the feature. HB.
