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.

Garrard County’s Hayes Preston, Class of 2025, proof of Team Kentucky’s fallibility

Hayes Preston didn’t make the Team Kentucky Future Stars-6th grade team but was an alternate. We know what Hayes can do and we still believe him to be among the very best football players in Kentucky in his graduating class. We can say this because look at everything else he has done. Not everyone in football thrives in shorts and shirts running around cones. Some people need to pad-up and thud-up for the evaluator to get a complete and accurate look at what the kid can do as a football player. We think our buddy, Ricco Hughes, missed one here. We miss on far more guys than he does. Nobody’s perfect, though he is pretty close.

Belfry’s Adkins adds Future Stars to a growing list of accomplishments

We were thrilled to hear yesterday from the Adkins family Jonah has been added to the Team Kentucky Future Stars-7th active roster for the June 15 show-down with Tennessee. Jonah, in an effort to keep himself physically ready, had been working all along in the event this opportunity should present. Yep, that is the Jonah Adkins we know. That is why he will thrive both in the game, June 15th, and thereafter. Enjoy this article about one of the hardest working and talented members of Kentucky’s 2024-class of football players.

Team Kentucky’s Carson Wright; Is he 2023’s very best LB in the commonwealth? Maybe…

There is an ongoing debate in Kentucky as to whether Carson Wright or Oscar “JT” Adams is the very best LB in Kentucky in the Class of 2023. Well, old Coach Lyon isn’t sure he can resolve that debate for you other than to say both teams set to add either to its roster this coming Fall is mighty fortunate. Today we will spill some more ink over Carson Wright and are equally sure we will come back and spill ink on JT Adams on down the road. Both of these young men, in Team Kentucky’s defensive second level, spell trouble for Tennessee’s intermediate passing game or its run from scrimmage hopes (for that matter), that is for sure.
