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

Like we did last week and will continue to do in succeeding weeks, we will go around the commonwealth of Kentucky and update, on Mondays, the performances we believe to be jerky-worthy. We had some really fine team and individual performance during this week of competition in the KHSAA. 

When our Protein-packed Performer gets named this Wednesday, it is very likely to be one of the below players. The following guys were all nominated for the award this week. Let’s see who gets it on Wednesday! 

Corbin’s Huff getting it done…

Huff from Twitter

Seth Huff (’22), who transferred to Corbin after playing for Knox Central a year ago, carried the football only seven-times Friday night in Corbin’s 42-0 trouncing of Wayne County. Three (3) of the seven (7) were for touchdowns. Huff gained 129-yards on the evening. Brayden Reynolds (’22) had himself a night. Reynolds had 13-stops, 2-TFLs and a QB-sack. Troy Faulkner (’23) had 11-stops and a TFL.

Up in Northern Kentucky at Covington Catholic…

Trevor Wilson (’22) made his opportunities count in Covington Catholic’s 27-7 win over Conner. Wilson only had four stops but two (2) were TFLs and the other two (2) were QB-sacks. Darpel Nicholas (’22) and Zion Mason (’23) each picked a pass as the 6-3 Colonels brace to play Class 6A Ryle before entering the playoffs. Ryle is coming off a 47-22 win over Simon Kenton and is 7-2. 

Ton of talent playing for Louisville Ballard…

Talk about defensive play, what about Ballard’s Gavin Willis (’23)? Willis had 11-stops and 3-TFLs on Friday night while Josiah Jackson (’22) contributed a QB-sack, the club’s lone one on the night when Ballard overcame Scott County 24-21. Ballard is 6-3 and preparing to play a North Hardin team with has struggled mightily this year, going 3-6. 

Bryan Station prevails in the “Battle of Central Kentucky 6A’s…”

J. Hocker

Trenton Cutwright (’24) had a big night against Madison Central for Lexington’s Bryan Station. Cutwright completed 10 of his 20 passing attempts for 272-yards and 3-TDs. Cutwright also gained 42-yards on 7-carries.

Jason Hocker (’24) had 12-tackles with a TFL while JahMalachi Hood (’22) had one of the club’s two QB-sacks. Amadeus Taylor (’22) had the other one. 

Bryan Station ran the old record to 8-1. More importantly, they sewed up the top seed in the district rounds of the upcoming KHSAA playoffs over second-seeded Madison Central.

What’s happening in the wild, wild West…

Omar Harrison (’22) carried the football 20-times against Warren East in Franklin-Simpson’s 41-14 victory. Harrison gained 184-yards and scored 3-touchdowns.

Isaac Callis (’23) was five (5) for five (5) on PATs and Mathias Dickerson (’24) paced the defense with five (5)-tackles and three (3)-of the team’s five (5) TFLs. Dakyrus Burr (’22) had the lone sack. Isaiah Rigsby (’24) picked the lone pass.

The Wildcats have now won three (3) straight. They will finish the regular season at Glasgow (3A, 8-1). 

Back to Central Kentucky where the Lions roared!

James Sparks (’22) led the Garrard County Lions defense in its 14-13 sliver of a win over Rockcastle County. Every play mattered as Garrard County ran its record on the year to 4-6 with a date with Class 4A Clay County (5-4) still on the docket.

Sparks had 18-total tackles with a TFL and a QB-sack. Jacob Brown (’22) had the other TFL among his 11-stops and Maishaun Baker (’24) had 13-stops himself.

Super-frosh, Montavin Quisenberry (“Q,” ’25), threw for one of the two scores and rushed for the other in amassing 102-yards over his 17-rushing attempts. “Q” has gained 1,113-yards rushing, with another 843-yards passing, accounting for some 23-TDs this year either running or throwing in what has to be one of the finer freshman campaigns in recent memory.
