Kory Combs (’25, Breathitt, LB/FB) and Blake Evans (’25, Bell County, LB/FB) appear to be friends. This would make perfect sense as the two of them are the best two LB’s in the Appalachia mountains in their graduating class. We have featured Combs many times. We are long overdue featuring this guy. FL.
This is a fun time of year. Every team is 0-0 going into round one and it is ‘loser go home.’ How long of a ride will Breathitt get? How long will any of us last? It will take hard work, good fortune, and a lucky bounce or two. Enjoy this look at a young man running a team performing optimally at the right time of year. HB.
This kid has all the upside in the world. He literally can go as far as he is willing to work toward going. Congratulations to the Hoskins family and to Bears fans across Kentucky for what is a very shrewd offer. Enjoy the feature. HB.
At “KPGFootball,” we think high school fans tend to get too consumed with who is or isn’t a college recruit or prospect. Sometimes fans fail to fully appreciate the stars of the high school game, the game we have built a business on covering. Isaac “Wheels” Turner is a bright light among a pantheon of high school football stars who wow us weekly with incredible feats of physical skill often amounting to either victory or defeat for our beloved alma maters across the commonwealth of Kentucky. Let’s not forget these guys. Well, we won’t. Enjoy this feature written about a true “Friday night hero.” HB.
Here is our KPGFootball preseason top 5 for the ’22 Fall football season in the 2A classification. We have made an exhaustive search of the respective rosters of the teams listed and believe these five to be the class of this particular classification. Enjoy. HB.
We have a real find for you today. How many of you remember the big time linebacker who played at Magoffin and then transferred to Paintsville before heading to Marshall’s Thundering Herd? His name was Mason Lovely. Today’s feature mimics Lovely’s production in several key ways, thought not completely. Enjoy this look at a Breakout Player you may not be soon to forget. HB.
Jacob Parker, the one to whom the white arrow points, is a late to the party player like so many others we have before featured. Parker transferred in to Breathitt from a high school which didn’t field a football team. He has been a wonderful surprise with a work-ethic which encircles many kids his age and has now worked himself into someone we have noticed. Look for him to start along the Big Blue Wave in ’22 at OT and to contribute at DE. HB.
An agent of the magazine was at this scrimmage which was “Meet the Cougars” night at Letcher Central. The Cougars got to meet one of Breathitt’s more potent offensive weapons for the ’21 season in Isaac “Wheels” Turner. Turner was scintillating in this scrimmage and gave a foreshadowing of what kind of threat he poses opposing defenses on the schedule in ’21. Enjoy this feature and join us next week as this gets awarded to another fine recipient. HB.
He came out of Middle School one of Kentucky’s very finest prospects. His freshman year performance didn’t dampen anyone’s enthusiasm. This kid here is a “Break-out” certainty, and a rocket-explosion straight to stardom near-certainty. He’s worked pretty hard getting the hay up into the barn, now its time to go get paid. Enjoy this feature about one of ’24’s premier players at his positions. HB.
Ashton Adams reminds many of us around the magazine of Breathitt’s Lane Weddle (Class of ’21). There is nothing on a football field where he can’t make a way to contribute and contribute meaningfully. He is a definite “Break-out” player for the Fall of ’21. Enjoy the feature. HB.
