’26 two-way guy presses 360-pounds and squats 520 while sporting a 4.0 GPA

Sawyer Hall is 6’0,” and tips the scales at around 290-pounds. He entered the ninth grade among Kentucky’s most decorated MS players, went directly into the starting lineup where he has remained ever since. Entering their junior years, both Hall and Wolford look to us to be the best two interior OL in all of Kentucky and they are both toiling away in the Appalachias.

Sawyer Hall BP’ing 360-pounds

Breathitt High is among the more storied football traditions in Kentucky’s small school classifications. The Bobcats have won three titles, have before won 42-consecutive games, and have routinely drawn four-plus thousand fans to the Mike Holcomb Athletic Complex, nicknamed “The Riverbank,” to catch home football games.

In a town with 2,000 citizens, ball park; its drawing twice that to home games tells you it is the “Friday Night” destination for Breathitt and surrounding counties. We have seen the Bobcats have some right formidable teams. So have many of you.

You build teams with talent. The Bobcats often have upper-shelf talent particularly up front.

One guy of whom we are very fond and of whom we are big fans is 2026’s, Sawyer Hall. Hall plays OG at Breathitt for its famed “Big Blue Wave (O-Line)” and has shown out in the limited duty the kid has drawn playing along the D-Line.

Hall’s flourishing is no mystery. The 6’0,” 290-pounder presses 360-pounds, squats 520-pounds, and still carries a 4.0 GPA.

Coach Casey Allen, Offensive Line, Breathitt High

Hall came to the HS ranks a very decorated, commonwealth-wide prospect. Hall, while in MS, played the FBU (Football University) circuit and all the other, “all-something teams” Kentucky could muster at that level of play.

We caught up with Hall’s position coach at Breathitt High. Coach Casey Allen related to KPGFootball the following about Hall:

“Hall is a player who is only a sophomore but is already a 360-pound presser and 520-pound squatter. Hall is an excellent athlete, student, and an even better kid.”

We asked Allen would he offer Hall (a college scholarship) if it were up to him. “Are you kidding? In a second!”

Now, the two major OL in the mountains of whom you always and consistently hear are Belfry’s Bo Wolford and Breathitt’s Sawyer Hall. These two guys share many strength attributes and both are tremendous players.

Wolford is a little taller (6’3,”) and a quite a bit lengthier. Both guys have tremendous feet, punch, leg kick, strength, explosion, and motors which are always revving at a very high rate.

Watch these guys, going forward, this coming season. Both of them will be deployed on both sides of the ball. Both will be in the mix for numerous All-State teams.

To the extent any lineman can factor in a Mr. Kentucky Football race, don’t be surprised to see one or both of them getting attention for that award their senior years. Stranger things have before happened.
