We first started covering “Hoss” when he was in middle school playing for Team Kentucky. As low to the ground and powerfully as he plays, he is a problems for framed-out O-Linemen to try to block. Enjoy this article about one of 2022’s best on either side of the football along the interior. HB.
Okay, we are unabashed Zach Yates fans around KPGFootball. He made two of our previous All-State teams. Read this article and perhaps you will see why. HB.
This bit of news will shock the high school coaching fraternity in Kentucky as Coach Peach had garnered a level of success over his stint at Anderson County which would make one think him immune from a decision like this. Peach had a wonderful tenure for the Bearcats and took the program to unprecedented heights over the course of his career there. He was 114-63 at Anderson County with a trip to the Championship game (2011) and a trip to
No team gets them all. The Coaches’ All-State Football team was just announced and it was a fine one with every player we saw deserving of selection. Still, we feel they undervalued some of the players and missed on some others. So here are our “friendly amendments and additiions” to the Coaches’ team. The media team will be out before you know it and I am pretty sure we will screw the pooch in the eye of many when it
First off, everyone of the “spectators” who will be taking in the festivities in round 2 of the KHSAA football playoffs would rather still be playing. However, if it so happens your team isn’t still playing, pure football fanatics for the Kentucky high school game still enjoy going to watch their friends and fellow stars play. That is the case for this Friday as the Riverbank in Jackson, Kentucky will be welcoming some true Kentucky high school football dignitaries and
The two players we are featuring together in this article are two guys who both relocated to Jackson, Kentucky (as luck would have it) during this summer. Both of their parents found employment in the area and uprooted their respective families. The Collins family has long-standing ties to Breathitt County High School as the Collins boys prior to CA Collins all played at Breathitt. The Longs had never been to Jackson, Kentucky before finding employment in the area and deciding to locate there. It has worked out swimmingly for a team which no media outlet predicted would do much in 2019 but which is absolutely killing it with considerable contribution from the two guys who have (naturally) bonded. Individually they are “CA Collins” and “William Long” but together they spell Double-Trouble for Breathitt opponents.Read more
It is getting time to start thinking about All-State selections. When it comes to voting on the All-State team (AP), we nominate guys positionally for inclusion. What we mean by that is when the AP asks for five linemen we nominate a center, two guards, and two tackles. The way we treat it is who would we want if this mythical team were going to play a game against another team and we really, really wanted to win. When we are asked for 4 defensive linemen, for instance, we give two DEs and two interior guys for the mythical defensive line. We nominate two safeties and two corners for the back end, so on and so forth. Our criteria is a simple one, our first team player would have to be good enough to transfer anywhere in Kentucky and be first team wherever he landed at the position at which he is being nominated. With that as a working criteria, which isn’t going to change, we will feature, from now through the opening of the ballot, players we believe fit that bill. We will start with a DE from Anderson County for which there will be little to any debate.Read more
Here is how we see 10 Friday-night match-ups fleshing out on October 11, 2019. We haven’t quite figured where we will be Friday night, leaning toward taking in the Anderson County at Bourbon County game in Paris, Kentucky. Anyway, this level of sarcasm is protected content for subscribers only. Sorry. #UMustPayToHateUs!
Talking to a friend of mine and KPGFootball contributor/scout and he was telling me about the Franklin County-Anderson County game. Franklin County won 53-13 and, yeah, the Flyers are loaded but he was also telling me he has coached teams against Franklin County’s splendid Class of 2021 WR prospect Fred Farrier. He told me the kid has been separating and snaring aerials practically without drops since he was a 3rd grader. Thought it would make a fine feature article.Read more
