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.

Tennessee will have to do something this year we don’t believe they have ever before had to accomplish in series history. The 7th-grade Team Tennessee Future Stars will again face the same QB who came back and beat them in the game a year ago when that guy was in the 6th grade. Can Cole Hodge win Offensive MVP in the 7th grade game two years in a row? We don’t know, but it sure will be fun to see
When guys like this win, it feels like we all win. This is a kid we have been praising and featuring through the years since coming on line. He has earned a scholarship offer to a Division I program which is also one of the country’s most elite institutions of high learning, and its second oldest. Congratulations to Ethan Bednarczyk from all of your friends at KPGFootball. #GoTribe.
The two young men whose pictures are attached to this article and published on the front page of the magazine will be in next month’s Future Stars Classic QBing Tennessee and Kentucky. Joshuah Keith is an athlete and QB with physical skills which would make him exceptional were he a senior in HS. He’s presently a 7th grader. Read and enjoy this article about a special player and athlete whose equal you may not see again for many years in
Old Coach Lyon didn’t know anything about this kid and couldn’t learn anything either through conventional techniques so I asked Coach Long if he wouldn’t lend a hand. Lucky for KPGFootball, Long was able to get Director Hughes who couldn’t be quiet about the kid and his abilities. It would appear this kid is the total package at the TE position. Enjoy the article about Louisville’s Cole Wickliffe.
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
