Throughout the season we pick weekly winners. It was one of our more popular segments a year ago. This year we will decide which games we cover based on our “hits.” Read us, you get covered. Ignore us, we ignore you. These are some Friday night match-ups in areas where we get a lot of views. This week we thought we might enliven things by singling out some games for witty commentary.

They call minor league teams supplying the majors with talent a “Farm system.” You will see writers who cover MLB talk about news “Down on the Farm.” We have borrowed from that principal for this weekly segment on outstanding performances from middle school stars who will shortly be starring on Friday night. Believe me, their time will be here before you can possibly believe. Enjoy this regular, in-season, look at what is going on down on the farm. HB.
Well, week “zero” is in the books and old Coach Lyon was 63-50 this weekend. That wouldn’t be too bad if we were a major league baseball team but we aren’t accustomed to a win percentage south of 60% around KPGFootball. I literally can feel Fletcher Long out there smirking (He won with much more frequency last season). Anyway, it would help Coach’s win percentage considerably if defending State Champions could manage to beat 2-win teams from 2018 at home,
Both Kavarius Moody and Justin Bair grew up playing football for me when I was on the coaching staff in the Packers organization in Clarksville, Tennessee. It is gratifying to see both of them starring for Kenwood High School and both appear poised to factor largely into the game with Hopkinsville tonight. This kid, like Moody, is a winner and a player who makes teams for which he plays better. Can’t complement any young player anymore than that. Enjoy the article.Read more
This Stewart Williams Company Robertson County Player of the Week is Ian McKinzie, a 2022 player at East Robertson High School who helps along the offensive line at guard which is, really, the very backbone of any high school football team. Enjoy this look at a guy ready to “come into his own” along the Indian’s offensive front in 2019 blocking for Cameron Swift and the boys as they open with Forrest High School tonight on the road in Chapel Hill, Tennessee. Join us again next week as we look to recognize another of Robertson County’s worthy players.Read more
Congratulations to Blasin and Cooper Moore who both play football (and basketball) for Hopkins County Central for their revolutionary play on the field and court. Oh yeah, before we forget, congratulations for being this week’s Independence Bank Revolutionary Players of the Week. Join us next week for another selection.Read more
There are predictions of which you are so sure you want to remind everyone of what you before said just so they won’t forget where they first heard it. In January of 2019, we predicted Bridger Knee would be a day one, snap one defensive, down-lineman starter for the Purples in 2019. On the brink of kickoff, we thought we would remind everyone what we said in January. That’s how confident we are in our being right (and first). Enjoy
We picked our Friday night “Winners” two days ago. We promised we would come back as the weekend drew nigher and pick the Saturday “Winners” too. Now we have done just that. Let the debate rage.
We thought we start out game week with a little pep-talk based, principally, from the lyrics from one of our favorite songs. For the Seniors out there know that “…for once in your life, here’s your miracle…[So], stand up and fight…” Have a great season! HB
