As a reward for all of the dutiful coverage to the Kentucky Future Stars football program, KPGFootball has contributed through the years, Director Ricco Hughes has agreed to permit this publication to be the first outlet to break the rosters of those selected to Team Kentucky Future Stars. We are enormously gratified by this and promise to publish and distribute the football players gaining selection to the respective rosters as soon as that information is transmitted to us. Now we will get the information from the selection committee Sunday, May 6, 2018 in the neighborhood of 6:00 p.m. EST. I can not fathom any way this information will be available any sooner so if you get to our site a few minutes early and it isn’t posted yet, don’t freak out. Also, if it takes us a minute or two to post it, again, don’t freak out. I promise you we are as eager to see the rosters as many of you.
For those of you who have missed one of the three combines which have, thus far, occurred, and you would still like to try-out, all is not lost. Tonight, May 1, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. at Louisville Ballard High School, there will be a make-up tryout. Now the make-up tryout is something which occurs every year so this isn’t something either special or peculiar to 2018. Ballard High School is located on 6000 Brownsboro Rd, Louisville, KY 40222. The make-up tryout, traditionally, is a combine from which quite a few players have made the Future Stars Roster. There will be a few big names planning on attending this tryout and I should have a story up later about a few of the big-timers who will be showcasing tonight. In any event, the make-up tryout has a long history of producing superstar players who go on to the summer classic and show out and even go to next-level stardom.
Overall, through three combines, I must say I have been pleased with the class of 2022 & 2023 players who have shown up and I believe Kentucky will be tough this summer. The 2022 class has some really good speed, maybe even faster than year’s previous, from top to bottom and not all of the speed is in the skill positions either. On behalf of KPGFootball, a big thank you to Kentucky Future Stars football for what amounts to a hearty endorsements of your efforts covering Kentucky players.
This is Fletcher Long reporting for KPGFootball reminding you to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE!
