Has there been a better RB in the KHSAA over the past several years than Senior, Blake Birchfield. Not for our money! Birchfield has his Panthers knocking on the door of yet another title. We thought it would be a good idea to award him a box of protein goodness to fortify him for the journey. Enjoy this article and don’t forget to make the time to #savortheflavor of the country’s finest all-beef jerky products. HB.
Year after year Pikeville High School has talent come off its bus which defies all logic in evaluating a Kentucky 1A roster. We would suppose that is why the Panthers are perpetually in the Title hunt at the 1A classification in football. Wade Hensley, and talent very much like him, promises the Panthers are likely to be in the hunt in ’22 also. Enjoy this feature. HB.
Brenden Anthony is one of Kentucky’s very finest at the MLB position Kentucky-wide in the ’25 class.

I want to begin this edition of Hail Pikeville with a declaration about what a fabulous time KPGFootball had at the Pikeville game. We were able to attend Pikeville’s game with Williamsburg where Pikeville would win its 23rd Regional Championship and berth in Kentucky’s Final Four for its football classification. We […]
They have participated in 6 Kentucky Middle School Football Association (KYMSFA) playoffs, prior to the one in which they are now participating. They have won the Middle School State Football Championship in their division 4 times and advanced to the State Semifinals a fifth time and losing by only two […]
I don’t believe anyone knew more about playing linebacker than Dick Butkus, nor do I think anyone in human history was more suited to play there. Butkus, who was constantly accused of targeting people when he played in the league once said When I played pro football, I never set out […]
KPGFootball has been pretty effusive in our praise of Coach Chris McNamee’s returning Panther’s prospects in the upcoming season. We have ranked them #1 in our preseason poll, so I would color KPGFootball impressed. Why shouldn’t we be? Pikeville reeled off seven straight wins last season before narrowly falling to […]
