We had another big week and so did these guys we have featured in this weekly series. This week we feature 31-current stars among the performances “singled out.” We believe one of these guys is very likely to win the Mingua Beef Jerky Award this Wednesday. We know this…there isn’t a bad choice in this entire article. Enjoy this look at some of the very fine performances we saw this past Friday night. 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.
This is a huge get for Wildcat fans as this kid is, by consensus, one of Kentucky’s premier players both in the class of ’21 and at his position (linebacker) commonwealth-wide.
This week’s “Revolutionary Player of the Week” is a top-flight, 2022 defensive end who helped lead the Purples to the 5A State Title, last season when Bowling Green defeated the always tough bunch from Owensboro Senior High.

Austin Oppel is a former Team Kentucky Future Star who we have followed on KPGFootball for years. He is tearing up the 6A classification and has the Green Wave looking to get out to a 2-0 start.

Ethan Phillips is a gifted player we covered when he was playing for Team Kentucky Future Stars. Programs don’t get quality, up and coming, offensive line talent like this all the time. Programs like Ft. Thomas Highlands gets players like this more than most. That is why they seem to always be winning championships. Enjoy the article. HB.
One of our favorite players in Kentucky, Hunter Scott, a.k.a. “The Gooch” is what we call a down-hiller in the offensive line play industry. This article should explain that. HB
There is no a surprise here. Austin Gough, the 2021 LBer who has been at the top of KPGFootball’s board at his position, Kentucky-wide, since we first watched him in 7th grade play for Team Kentucky, has snagged a D-I offer from Southeast Missouri. This is the first of many. Enjoy the article. HB.
He had a splendid sophomore campaign at Frederick Douglass before bolting for the prestigious IMG Academy for his Junior campaign. Well, he must have missed us (we sure missed him) because the player they call “The Flash” is back in Lexington and ready to saddle up for one more rodeo with Frederick Douglass. Enjoy the article.
