Gatorade’s slogan, or one of them at least is, “Is it in you?” That is a very appropriate question and one which bears on how this kid came to commit to EKU. Hensley’s father was a four year football letterman at EKU and both his parents graduated from EKU. Do you know what is in him other than a legacy to EKU? We think the Gatorade Kentucky High School Player of the Year. Give this man a Gatorade. Enjoy the feature. Friday Night Fletch
We broke down 1A yesterday and promised to dissect 2A today. As promised, this is how we see it. This is the one classification where the team listed as No. 5 on our list could still win it all. These five (5) teams, for the reasons we state, are the best five in the classification. Enjoy the read. FL.
The Johns family has become one of the first families of Central Kentucky HS football. First Anthony Johns starred at LCA on his way to EKU and now little brother is pulling the trick. Will he end up at EKU? Who knows, he is a rising sophomore and we have to wait and see how his frame finishes. Enjoy this feature about one of Kentucky’s very best interior OL guys in the ’26 graduating class and don’t forget to pick up a bag of Kentucky’s finest all-beef jerky products at your area convenient store today. #savortheflavor, FL
Oakley Watkins, the Associate Head Coach and OC at LCA, a perennial state title contender at its level of play, has called Hayes Preston, “the most athletic OL I have coached” and a “can’t miss next level prospect.” With as many “next level prospect(s)” as that program produces, that is high praise in deed. Enjoy this feature and get some of the country’s finest all-beef jerky today. #Savortheflavor! FL
Parker Chaney has long been one of the definitive WR’s in Kentucky. He plays a mean DB and is wonderful on the diamond for the baseball version of the Eagles program. Now, he has been chosen by Mingua Beef Jerky to be both fed and clothed. Enjoy this look at one of the better football players in the entire commonwealth and don’t forget to #Savortheflavor. FL.
We are approaching round four (4) in the KHSAA playoffs. All of these teams left standing are very good. There are exactly no bad apples left in the barrel. It will be the “little things” which differentiate between winning and losing at this point. “Mighty Mayfield” has themselves the home field and a kicker in Lincoln Suiter who has before come through for the Cardinals in a “big game,” with the game on the line. If called upon, Friday night, will he come through once more? We shall see, but the Cardinals are confident. Enjoy the feature. HB.
There are numerous stars ladening the LCA football roster and some “up and comers” of whom you may not even know presently destined to be stars. Still the straw which appears to stir the drink of the ’22 version of the Eagles football team appears to be this Will Nichols kid. There is very little about him online and we had to work hard to bring you this report. We promise you, we dug harder to get this article published than any college coach is going to work to find him or any other “under the radar” player out in the commonwealth. Enjoy the feature and try to learn something. HB.
Hayes Preston had a tremendous freshman campaign. What we believe he will do as a sophomore will astound all but the most astute of high school fans. Preston is at the very top of the class among ’25s. We could see him playing a multitude of posts depending on how his frame finished. Enjoy the feature. HB.
We have covered Frankie Knight since he was a middle schooler setting the curve in the 40 at the Future Stars combine. He is still fast as his work on the track as a sprinter would suggest. He’s also a real diamond in the rough football prospect too who may be finding his dance card filling up really soon. Enjoy the feature. HB.
We have made it no secret we enjoy publicizing the players who rarely get any publicity, the offensive linemen across Kentucky. Well, if I were putting together a line of scrimmage from all of the linemen across the commonwealth of Kentucky to play a football game, the Big Nashty would be prominently discussed as a starter on this line. Congratulations to him on winning this week’s award and join us next week as we award this to another outstanding player from across Kentucky. HB.
