“No sir, you ain’t moving ‘Big Baby’ nowhere!” I remember hearing Kentucky Future Stars’ Director yell this at Team Kentucky camp three years ago like it was yesterday. Three years later it is even harder to move this 6-2, 290-pound DT/NG. He’s at Pikeville High School now, like they really needed the help (denote sarcasm). Enjoy the article. HB.
Sometimes we forget that not every kid comes in and slides straight into the Friday night lineup as a freshman. This is especially true at the 5A level of football in Kentucky. However, by year’s end we saw more and more of JT Adams patrolling the Colonel defense’s second level. Get ready, you will certainly see way more of that this year out of a kid we have consistently ranked among the top 2-3, 2023 LBs. Enjoy the article. HB.
If you are looking to fight a war, like the ones staged each Fall on football fields across the 6A classification, we suggest you show up with a warrior. Here’s one, his name is Trent Clavey. Enjoy the article. HB.
Gough is used to doing things well before anyone thinks he can. He started at one of Kentucky’s premier high-school programs as a freshman, he set the school’s single-season tackle mark as a sophomore, he made the AP All-State Football First-Team as a sophomore. The list just never seems to end. When he broke his leg the projections were he would be through for the year. Well, in keeping with Gough tradition, he was cleared to return to action in
Colleague of mine called me just yesterday and asked if I had heard about the game between Jordan Miles (Trigg) and Joshuah Keith (Todd) I asked him, “Are you serious? What kind of an outfit do you think we’re running over here?”
Hey, when two of the best football players in Kentucky’s 2024 class lock-horns, KPGFootball is going to be there. The result of the confrontation was gloriously played football played between two very fine football teams.Read more
We make no bones about it, Joshuah Keith is the best QB in the class of 2024 anywhere in Kentucky in our opinion. He may be 2024’s very best football player too. A lot of what makes him different is his poise and football IQ. Than there is an 8th grader who runs in the high 4.6’s, low 4.7’s, in the 40 and shuttles in a blistering 4.0-flat. Of course his throwing a HS ball 59-yards this summer in Knoxville
KPGFootball was able to catch up and interview our friend, Anthony White, about his plans for the Atherton football program. This upcoming football season will be his first at the Rebel helm. Of course, we know White by his nickname “Nino” like virtually all of the Louisville area and the Team Kentucky fraternity. We also know him to be a winner. There are bright days ahead for this program. Enjoy this article.
First we appreciate our friend, Brendon Miller with the Bluegrass Sports Nation for providing some of the photographs we have been using in our features of the Kentucky Future Stars players. Secondly we would like to tell you any person who claims to be an aficionado of Kentucky middle or high school football and are unfamiliar with the surname “Monroe” may well be selling you a bill of goods. The Monroes can flat out ball, son. Enjoy this article about
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in [Kentucky] now a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us [today against Tennessee]. William Shakespeare, Henry V, Act IV.
Tennessee will have to do something this year we don’t believe they have ever before had to accomplish in series history. The 7th-grade Team Tennessee Future Stars will again face the same QB who came back and beat them in the game a year ago when that guy was in the 6th grade. Can Cole Hodge win Offensive MVP in the 7th grade game two years in a row? We don’t know, but it sure will be fun to see
