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.
As we say farewell to another group of ballers we have covered since they played in middle school, we get to meet and update our database with an entire new class of up-and-coming stars who will play their freshman seasons this coming Fall. Many of these guys will start on Friday Night sometime during their initial campaigns. Some of these guys will start night one, snap one and we aren’t talking about on specials either. Today, we are highlighting a kid we call around the magazine a “No-doubter.” Why? Well, you may have to just read this article and find out. HB.
If you have been reading our weekly “Outstanding Performances…” articles, the series of articles should have impressed upon you how very difficult winning this award really is. We had another spectacular week where there were numerous performances any one of which would have been a fine performance to single-out. This week, week two of the playoffs, we honor a senior who did a whole lot of everything in leading his team to its District Championship. This guy contributed to his team’s success in multiple phases of the football game. Read the article and see! Enjoy the article and join us next week as we honor another worthy recipient. HB.
We are 22-3 over the last two weeks and 30-3 for the season. Here are fourteen games for Friday night and what we think the outcome will be. Some of these games are “toss-ups” and some will be blow-outs. There are a few in here which will be quite closer than odds-makers believe and we have seen this phenomenon all year. Enjoy the article. HB.
