Kory Combs, ’25, is a no-doubter. @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

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.

The Freshman All-State Team from 4-years ago. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

Looking back a few years, here was our very first Freshman All-State Football team. It really is scary how very accurate we were. Four years later, many of these guys are still the “big dogs” around the KHSAA at their respective positions. To make this team, you had to produce on Friday nights. We didn’t evaluate freshman or JV highlights then. Still don’t now. HB.

At 6-0, 230-pounds, this cat makes plays all over the field. Austin Gough (Owensboro Senior) and he are the consummate 2nd-level players in Kentucky.

Sooner or later, the cream will rise to the top. Enjoy the article! HB.

Coach Lyon’s Class 6A preseason top-10 football poll…

Someone contacted old Coach Lyon and asked when we were going to put out our preseason top-10 football polls for each classification. Well, the day we were called seemed like as good a day as any to continue that tradition. Since KPGFootball started with the top classification when picking district winners, this time we started with Class 1A, then 2A, then 3A, then 4A, and yesterday we projected Class 5A. Today we give you our projections for the largest Kentucky classification, Kentucky Class 6A. We have now completed this series and hope this has peaked your interest in something we love around here with all our hearts…Kentucky High School football. Have a great season, everyone of you. We can’t wait to both watch and report on it.

…With Liberty and Justice for all…Ballard High’s Justice Thompson, dispensing justice in the middle of the Bruins defense!

You bring the liberty and we will provide the Justice. Justice Thompson from Louisville is about whom we are ranting. This is one of the most feared faces patrolling any second level of any defense among any of the 6 classifications of football playing in the commonwealth of Kentucky. What’s all the fuss? You’ll have to read this article to discover the answer to that.
