We love to scour the statistics and then glorify the skill players who compile them. Many of these skill players become our heroes, our kids’ heroes. We forget that Johnny QB or Johnny RB didn’t just run out on the field and run over the defensive 11, single-handily. Someone or 5 particular “someones” have to bust their butts for recognition from only the most knowledgeable few. We love offensive linemen at KPGFootball and Logan Smith is one of our favorites
We have heard thunder only happens when it is raining. We have also heard where there is thunder there is also lightening. Well, opponents of Caudill Middle School have been experiencing some terrible weather over the past three seasons. The two backs we have featured today, Kenyatta “Thunder” Hodge and Brady “Lightening” Hensley, are the most dynamic and productive backfield in Kentucky’s Class of 2024. Enjoy the article. HB.
At KPGFootball we admire the players who kind of have to work for stardom and then do. Anthony Johns has a good frame which appears likely to still be lengthening but his is not the best OL frame we have seen. However, his attention and dedication to strengthening, conditioning, and doing even the little things the right way is among the best we have seen. There aren’t any players in the Class of 2022 which work any harder than this
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
We aren’t sure at which position Tyler Morris is the best player in Kentucky’s 2022 graduating class. We are sure he is probably Kentucky’s best player at several of them. We know this, if we were picking an All-Kentucky team of 2022’s to tour around and play other states or commonwealths we would pick him with our first selection. Enjoy this article about an unparalleled football talent from Lexington, Kentucky. He will start getting offers this next offseason. Book it!
He’s the top rated linebacker in Kentucky’s class of 2021 and the class’s overall top rated football player at any position. He has been setting records with his play at Owensboro Senior High School a program which has produced a few players in its day. Now, Austin Gough is killing it on the camp/combine circuit and some big-timers are clamoring for his services. Enjoy this article about a kid who will start getting offers in short order. From head to
This is a prospect KPGFootball has featured plenty of times. This is also a prospect the instate schools can ill-afford to allow to slip down the interstate to Knoxville, Tennessee. Some Power-5 school is going to lock this guy down here pretty soon. If you are either a U of L, UK, or WKU fan, let’s hope it is one of those.
If they belong to #Brotherhood, they can play the sport of football. Myriad are the examples of this. Yesterday, KWC extended offers which included offers to these three members of #Brotherhood. None of these three have seen their last offer. We got to watch all three perform at KWC’s prospect camp and we came away as impressed as Coach Yeast. Enjoy the article.Read more
His older brother is bracketed as the No. 1 overall prospect, particularly QB prospect, in Kentucky’s Class of 2024 with Joshuah Keith. This version of Hodge QB looks definitively, at least to KPGFootball, to be the Class of 2025’s very best signal caller and, maybe, its best football player. We know he is one of Kentucky’s best basketball players in his graduating class, ask anyone knowledgable on the subject. Don’t know what they are drinking around the Hodge home, we
One of the big advantages the commonwealth of Kentucky has in the Kentucky-Tennessee Future Stars Classic over its Tennessee counterparts is our ability to mine the coalfields up in Eastern Kentucky for rugged, tough, and often huge linemen. Evan Miller is such a specimen. This kid is 6-2, 305-pounds now and judging by what he did to the size 17 cleats he brought to the Somerset combine, he’s only just begun to grow. Enjoy this article about “the next big thing” at the tackle position in Kentucky HS football, circa Class of 2023.Read more
