The Freshman All-State Team from 4-years ago. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

Looking back a few years, here was our very first Freshman All-State Football team. It really is scary how very accurate we were. Four years later, many of these guys are still the “big dogs” around the KHSAA at their respective positions. To make this team, you had to produce on Friday nights. We didn’t evaluate freshman or JV highlights then. Still don’t now. HB.

Today we give you our projections for the next classification up from the lowest one, here is Class 3A!

And so it begins…July 22…

Today, all over Kentucky, is the first day teams have been able to wear what the KHSAA calls “shells.” What gear constitutes “shells” is set out in Bylaw 23 and its subparts. “Shells” are defined as shorts, helmet, and shoulder pads. Judging from some social media postings we have viewed in advance of today, some of you were confused as to exactly when you could add shoulder pads to your practice equipment. We watched one middle school video of a member school practicing in “shells” last week. Anyway, the donning of shoulder pads means different things to different players so we sent out a query to some of Kentucky’s best high school players to see what, if anything, it signified to them. This article contains what we received back from some of the players asked.

Class of 2020 QB, Jaden Stinson (@jadenstinson14) of Mayfield HS…Not a more effective QB in @KyHighSchool Football

Jared Stinson is in the top three signal-callers in all of Kentucky’s 2020 graduating class. Mayfield has lost a ton of ground production from last year’s backfield, but the passing game returns almost completely intact. What will Stinson’s numbers be in 2019 with his top receivers returning? If the last two years are an indication, could be off the charts.
