Preseason look at Class 4A; here’s our look at the top 5. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

These preseason polls have been super hard to research and write. For one, SB-128 has made forecasting who’s back and who’s moved on super dicey to predict. Thank the Lord for Twitter. Here is our look at Class 4A. This classification figures to be super competitive, especially for the 5th slot in the poll as 6-8 teams could have been slotted there. Anyway, it is all for fun. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@_reecejr (Reece Jesse Jr., Hopkinsville High) soon to be playing for @UofLFootball is the @Minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” @KyHighFootball @1776Bank @HoptownFootball

Another prototype here in Reece Jesse, Jr. at the WR position. Man, what a career he enjoyed and what a spectacle he provided for all of us fans to enjoy. We predict big things from this guy next level. It is only fitting a company known for selling one-of-a-kind, hand-cut, solid pieces of beef in its beef jerky products should decide to award its weekly distinction to a one-of-a-kind performer at the receiver position. Enjoy the article. HB.

@_reecejr (Reece Jesse Jr., Hopkinsville High) reports commitment to @UofLFootball

He has consistently been ranked among Kentucky’s finest and just completed a career at Class 4A Hopkinsville absolutely supportive of his rankings. Reece Jesse, Jr., with many options to go away and play Division I, FBS football far away from home has elected to stay home and be a Louisville Cardinal. Good luck to this young man we have enjoyed getting to know and watch play over the course of his fine high school career.

This Time Around: We pick five District Championship Games which we believe will end differently this time around than their regular season counterparts…@minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball (Featured Photo Credit: Zack Klemme / The Daily Independent)

This is a new concept we are calling the “Second Time Around.” All of the teams we have chosen to feature played the other during the regular season. These are five matchups we believe may turn out differently than when the two teams first met in 2020. Here is our breakdown. Enjoy the article!

Montrell Rogers from @CountyLaker is the @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week!

July 31, 2020 Henry Lyon 0

This week’s “Revolutionary Player of the Week” is a top-flight, 2022 defender playing for Calloway County High School. His name is Montrell Rogers. He, very quietly and without much fanfare, had over 80-tackles in just 11-games in 2019. This feature is brought to you weekly by the folks over at Independence Bank. Go on by and see our friends and thank them, not just for this series, but for the outstanding service and products which have started a revolution in the banking industry.

Class of 2020’s Quinton Carlton moves to the “next level”

February 28, 2020 Henry Lyon 0

Quinton Carlton has worked tirelessly and has performed sufficiently well enough to get to do something, going forward, that only 6.9 % of high school players will ever get to do. He has signed to play in college. We suspect you haven’t heard the last of this outstanding player as his talents will really shine once he hits the field on Saturdays. Enjoy the article. HB.

Justin Bair, Kenwood HS, is this week’s Meeks and Meeks Attorneys Montgomery County Player of the Week…

August 23, 2019 Fletcher Long 0

Both Kavarius Moody and Justin Bair grew up playing football for me when I was on the coaching staff in the Packers organization in Clarksville, Tennessee. It is gratifying to see both of them starring for Kenwood High School and both appear poised to factor largely into the game with Hopkinsville tonight. This kid, like Moody, is a winner and a player who makes teams for which he plays better. Can’t complement any young player anymore than that. Enjoy the article.

Hopkinsville’s Denarius “Red” Barnes (2020) is the Meeks & Meeks Montgomery County area Player of the Week

August 16, 2019 Fletcher Long 0

Red Barnes has been a favorite of ours since he transferred to HHS from Wonder Junior High in West Memphis, Arkansas to play his sophomore season. He is one of the best defensive linemen in the Class of 2020 and one of its leading citizens too. This is a kid who we believe is a college football player (no doubt) but isn’t likely to be positioned in college where the Tigers have deployed him. The fact he has thrived along an even defensive front, though undersized, buttresses everything good about his ability we have consistently maintained. This kid is a winner and a player who makes teams for which he plays better teams. Can’t complement any young player anymore than that. Enjoy the article.
