Storm Warning: Jeremiah Groves is ready to be found- @HopkinsCentral @evans02_mike @_CoachManning @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps @PrepSpin @logan_rodgers_ @jacklongFb

Every week we bring you a feature about a member of the Storm's football roster

’26 athlete very versatile & made the most of freshman opportunities

Jeremiah Groves is a kid who doesn’t appear to have any highlights on his Hudl account, doesn’t have a Twitter page, doesn’t appear to have a Facebook page, he is a complete and utter social media ghost. He doesn’t exist. That has to change, assuming he would like to be recruited, because he had a fine freshman year, has an enviable athletic skill set, and could play next level provided the schools which might be interested can find him.

Jeremiah Groves has to be among the better athletes in Western Kentucky in the ’26 class. He got seven (7) games of run in varsity football, played varsity basketball, and ran track all during his freshman year.

Groves is 6’3,” weighs 180-pounds (ball park), has a tremendous amount of length; and, according to the offensive coordinator Coach Mike Evans, “…can play any of the skill positions and successfully.”

Yet, there is no picture of him anywhere we could find online. There are no highlights of him on his Hudl. It is like Groves is trying to remain anonymous.

Well sorry, Bub! KPGFootball is outing you today!

This kid is a playing. He got seven (7) games of run in ’22, which is quite a bit at the 4A level (Central has realigned to the 3A class but was 4A in ’22).

Groves (’26) caught 7-passes for 83-yards, registered 13-tackles, tied for club lead with 2-INT’s, and among leaders in PBU’s.

Groves wasn’t just “out there” either. He produced.

Over his seven games, Groves caught seven (7)-passes on offensive for 83-yards. Groves registered 13-tackles from his safety post. Groves tied for the club lead with two (2)-INT’s and was among the leaders in PBU’s.

We reached Chris Manning for comment on his prized rising sophomore. Manning told KPGFootball, “Groves is a big target with great hands on offense…and his tall frame helps him cover ground in the secondary on defense.”

Apparently, this kid has been the talk of the area since middle school. His middle school coach at Browning Springs, Tyrone Gregory told us, “Can play multiple positions, on either side of the ball. Groves works hard and is harder on himself than a coach can ever be.”

Why is it so hard to even find his picture? We have to do better than this.

We are hoping this article today launches this outstanding prospect. We are hoping this puts him on the radar. We are hoping, in the future, when you run his name that Groves’ athletic accomplishments, and maybe even (dare we say) a photograph will appear.

We associate regularly with some programs across Kentucky which field college football teams. We are pretty sure there are some recruiting coordinators across Kentucky hoping many of the same things as we.
