The penultimate in high school football is gaining the inestimable privilege of getting to practice football on Thanksgiving. Well, there are 24 teams left who get this privilege and get to build this life-long memory. Half of the remaining will run out onto Kroger Field and play for a championship. Which 12 will it be? We attempt to answer that for you right here. Friday Night Fletch
Xavier Biggers was among the top players in western-Kentucky a year ago at Murray High. This year he has moved over to Mayfield, the top program in the western end and (maybe) in the entire commonwealth. Enjoy this look at our Revolutionary Player of the Week and learn what makes our people, products, and financial services revolutionary in the Kentucky banking industry! FL.
This kid will be as good as his frame finishes. He’s going into the 8th grade and the 5’10.5,” 180-pounder is one of the more dynamic and productive second level defenders in the western end of the commonwealth. Enjoy the feature. FL.
Jaylen Bass is a guy who, were he a few inches taller, would be one of the more coveted LG’s in the country among High School ’24’s. Fact of the matter is he has the tools to overcome a lack of height. He has controlled and dominated all parts of the equation over which he has any semblance of control. Enjoy the feature. FL.
How in the world did it take so long to appreciate the on-field performance of Michael Hughes, Jr.? Frankly, we are a tad embarrassed to admit not knowing the answer to this. It would help if the kid would sign up for Twitter like every other football prospect in the known universe. Still, this presents a real opportunity for college programs looking for D-1 skill-sets in non-traditional frames. Here’s one right here! You’re welcome. HB.
What a job Chase Flaherty did filling in at RB for the newly crowned 2A Kentucky Champions, Beechwood, after it lost its “Mr. Football” candidate Mitchell Berger. Almost makes you think the Tigers are elite across the offensive front, which is the case by the way. Still, the championship game came down to Mayfield’s extra-point attempt sailing wide of a college goal post which would have been good had the kicker been kicking toward a high school goal post. Football is a game of inches. Enjoy the feature. HB.
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.
We are at the win or go home point in the career of these seniors across the commonwealth. There will be a point in the not too distant future where we will stop featuring ’23’s to highlight the classes who will compete again next season in this seemingly endless merry-go-round. For now, let us bask in the glory of some of these ’23s, and specifically the ones who have battled so valiantly and performed so brilliantly. HB.
This is a young player who made the most of his limited opportunities over his freshman season. We believe he is poised and preparing to make his move up the depth chart at Mayfield this coming season. Read why we feel this way. HB.
Both Independence Bank and KPGFootball send out their very best to all the families impacted by the recent tornado which ravaged Mayfield, Kentucky as hard as any area in the Bluegrass.
