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.

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.

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.

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?

We are going to say something here with which Isaac Dixon, who we know well, would readily agree. He doesn’t gain 228-yards rushing on 15 carries and walk away from Kroger Field with the Class 3A, State Championship Game MVP hardware without Ethan “Big E” Wolford and the rest of “Haywood’s Hogs.” In a game dominated by grown men able to move the unwilling from A to B despite the latter’s protestations, Belfry reinforces the adage one has to “run
Charles Andrew “Genny” Collins is on the cusp of eclipsing a Kentucky High School rushing record for yards per rushing attempt over the course of a year. The mark is presently held by Taveon Hunter who averaged 16.47-yards per rushing attempt over the course of 78-carries. The mark was formerly held by Ryan Timmons of Franklin County who averaged 15.73-yards per carry the year he set the record. What is Geeny doing? We have it for you right inside this
