Talk about your protein-packed performers, this 5-11, 190-pound RB/DB for Belfry High School (3A) had a quite a night this past Friday. Matter of fact, he’s having quite the year. We think he is a bone fide “Mr. Football” candidate. He’s been in the running every week for the “prize.” If a night like what he had Friday doesn’t get you a T-shirt and some beef jerky, it is hard to imagine what one has to accomplish to win the award. Enjoy the article and join us next week as we honor another worthy recipient. HB.Read more
Talk about you programs with committed fan bases, Belfry will host Pulaski County in Friday Night’s opener on Pond Creek. We have the game broken down for you here like only we can. Enjoy the article. HB.
We are going throughout Kentucky and listing its top teams in each area. We thought we would start with the Mountains. HB.
Everybody has to start somewhere. Josh Baisden isn’t as large as his brother, Jacob, and he hasn’t been as productive for the Belfry…yet! Jacob Baisden is moving on to college and many believe Josh is headed for the Belfry D-Line rotation in spite of his only seeing action in 3-games in 2019. Enjoy the article. HB.
This guy has the frame colleges covet. Has the length too and is mighty effective along the first level in the down-hill run game. Enjoy this look at 6-6, 330-pound, Spencer County’s biggest Bear, Gavin Phillips. HB.
We thought we would check in on a kid which Belfry (lucky them) seems to grow on trees over there. Rudy Blackwell, Jr. made our Freshman All-State Football team in 2019 and considering how he played and the numbers he put up it really wasn’t a close call. Heading into his sophomore year, if he continues to develop physically, grow a little thicker to go with his growing taller, there is really no limit to how good he can be.

Man these mountains are loaded with talent. We tend to find every last one of them too. Why? Because we have Mark Cook on our team and other publications don’t. So when Coach Cook says Brad Lowe can play, and he raised and trained Grayson Cook, we figured he would be in a fine position to know. Enjoy the article, see if you don’t agree with him! HB.
We have chosen to bid farewell to a class of football players on whom we “cut our teeth” so to speak. These guys were on our first KPGFootball Sophomore All-State team. These guys never let us down and we don’t see them disappointing us in college either. Good-bye class of 2020, we will miss you…we will forever love and remember you. Coach Lyon, individually and for the entire staff of KPGFootball.
In the business of covering Kentucky High School football we have a term we call “Championship Level Defense.” What we say about it is simply a Kentucky high school football team will never win a championship without playing defensively like a champion. Go back through your favorite team’s statistics and see whether you team played defensively commensurate with championship level play. What is championship level defensive play? Well, this article will tell you. HB.
