National Signing Day!

February 5, 2020 Henry Lyon 0

Well, it is National Signing Day and some kids we kicked off covering when we first came on line are leaving us for the college ranks. We don’t feel as sad as the parents, but it is pretty close. Going to always remember the class of 2020. We are going to miss the class of 2020.

Big E Commits to University of Charleston (W.Va.) as we tearfully say good-bye to our first class of Sophomore All-Staters…

January 28, 2020 Henry Lyon 0

We have chosen to bid farewell to a class of football players on whom we “cut our teeth” so to speak. These guys were on our first KPGFootball Sophomore All-State team. These guys never let us down and we don’t see them disappointing us in college either. Good-bye class of 2020, we will miss you…we will forever love and remember you. Coach Lyon, individually and for the entire staff of KPGFootball.

We are going to say something here with which Isaac Dixon, who we know well, would readily agree. He doesn’t gain 228-yards rushing on 15 carries and walk away from Kroger Field with the Class 3A, State Championship Game MVP hardware without Ethan “Big E” Wolford and the rest of “Haywood’s Hogs.” In a game dominated by grown men able to move the unwilling from A to B despite the latter’s protestations, Belfry reinforces the adage one has to “run the damn football” to win games in November and December in the commonwealth of Kentucky. We are going to miss Big E.

Coach Lyon’s Class 3A preseason top-10 football poll…

July 26, 2019 Henry Lyon 0

Someone contacted old Coach Lyon and asked when we were going to put out our preseason top-10 football polls for each classification. Well, today seemed like as good a day as any to continue the tradition. Since KPGFootball started with the top classification when picking district winners, this time we started with Class 1A and yesterday we projected Class 2A. Today we give you our projections for the next classification up from the lowest one, here is Class 3A!

It is STUDENT-athlete, not student-ATHLETE; the migration toward elite academics over the football factory

June 20, 2019 Henry Lyon 0

This may be the most important article we have published. There is a trend taking over the commonwealth of Kentucky and we love it. The trend, committing to elite academic institutions over waiting on D-1s to come-off with an offer, appears to be spreading and thank the good Lord for that. Look people, it is STUDENT-athlete and not student-ATHLETE. Let’s be smart out there and use our athletic talents to set us up with academic opportunities which set us up for rewarding, fulfilling, and comfortable lives.

Is Owen LeMaster, Johnson Central, Kentucky’s best interior OL in the Class of 2022?

June 12, 2019 Henry Lyon 0

At KPGFootball, we can’t be higher on any young interior offensive lineman than we are on Owen LeMaster. This kid is a bull in the tradition of an Ethan Wolford or even an Andrew Clifton. Heck, he even kind of favors Clifton. We feel LeMaster is the best OG in Kentucky in the graduating class of 2022. If we were selecting a football team from that class, he would be our first choice at the guard slot from out of all the guards playing Kentucky football presently. Read this article about a member of #Brotherhood and former Team Kentucky Future Star in honor of Team Kentucky’s starting camp for the annual classic today.

Team Kentucky Future Stars-8th, Evan Miller, Class of 2023, from Breathitt County. He’s from the mountains…He is a mountain!

One of the big advantages the commonwealth of Kentucky has in the Kentucky-Tennessee Future Stars Classic over its Tennessee counterparts is our ability to mine the coalfields up in Eastern Kentucky for rugged, tough, and often huge linemen. Evan Miller is such a specimen. This kid is 6-2, 305-pounds now and judging by what he did to the size 17 cleats he brought to the Somerset combine, he’s only just begun to grow. Enjoy this article about “the next big thing” at the tackle position in Kentucky HS football, circa Class of 2023.

Kentuckians shine with performances at the APC…

April 28, 2019 Fletcher Long 0

We couldn’t get to every Kentucky performance and there were more outstanding performances from Kentucky athletes than we could possibly record. However, these performances were extraordinary and were worthy of mention on what was a find day for Kentucky prospects demonstrating they should be recruited as hard as any other state represented.

Belfry’s Ethan Wolford dominating his second sport…

We have, over and over again, extolled the virtues of high school athletes playing multiple sports. We have patiently explained how much college football recruiters favor recruiting and signing multi-sport athletes to play college football and by a very large percentage we might add. We have been just as generous […]
