Just to give you an idea the role Kentucky Prep Gridiron plays in the promotion of the kids we cover, we thought it would be neat to look at this year’s AP All-State Football Team and see just how many of them have, either formerly or presently, make one of our All-State Teams. The results were illuminating. HB.
Rivals Dave tweeted out that he treats information sent him about Appalachia Mountain, Kentucky football players as “spam.” Well, we disagree with Rivals. We think there are fine football players all over the mountains. The USAF Academy agrees with us and was in the mountains last night to scout some 2021s and check in with its 2020 signee, Grayson Cook. Who did the Falcons evaluate? We have the “who’s” and the “why’s” in this article.
No team gets them all. The Coaches’ All-State Football team was just announced and it was a fine one with every player we saw deserving of selection. Still, we feel they undervalued some of the players and missed on some others. So here are our “friendly amendments and additiions” to the Coaches’ team. The media team will be out before you know it and I am pretty sure we will screw the pooch in the eye of many when it
First off, everyone of the “spectators” who will be taking in the festivities in round 2 of the KHSAA football playoffs would rather still be playing. However, if it so happens your team isn’t still playing, pure football fanatics for the Kentucky high school game still enjoy going to watch their friends and fellow stars play. That is the case for this Friday as the Riverbank in Jackson, Kentucky will be welcoming some true Kentucky high school football dignitaries and
The two players we are featuring together in this article are two guys who both relocated to Jackson, Kentucky (as luck would have it) during this summer. Both of their parents found employment in the area and uprooted their respective families. The Collins family has long-standing ties to Breathitt County High School as the Collins boys prior to CA Collins all played at Breathitt. The Longs had never been to Jackson, Kentucky before finding employment in the area and deciding to locate there. It has worked out swimmingly for a team which no media outlet predicted would do much in 2019 but which is absolutely killing it with considerable contribution from the two guys who have (naturally) bonded. Individually they are “CA Collins” and “William Long” but together they spell Double-Trouble for Breathitt opponents.Read more
Here’s a player with incredible length and frame to play right where Breathitt has him deployed. Want to know why the Bobcats’ defense is being raved about all over the Bluegrass? Having a 6-5, 240-pound DE with incredibly long arms and upper-level mobility sure doesn’t hurt. Read about this prospect playing on one of the hottest teams in Kentucky’s young 2019 football season this year. HB
Throughout the season we pick weekly winners. It was one of our more popular segments a year ago. This year we will decide which games we cover based on our “hits.” Read us, you get covered. Ignore us, we ignore you. These are some Friday night match-ups in areas where we get a lot of views. This week we thought we might enliven things by singling out some games for witty commentary.

Both Kavarius Moody and Justin Bair grew up playing football for me when I was on the coaching staff in the Packers organization in Clarksville, Tennessee. It is gratifying to see both of them starring for Kenwood High School and both appear poised to factor largely into the game with Hopkinsville tonight. This kid, like Moody, is a winner and a player who makes teams for which he plays better. Can’t complement any young player anymore than that. Enjoy the article.Read more
We thought we start out game week with a little pep-talk based, principally, from the lyrics from one of our favorite songs. For the Seniors out there know that “…for once in your life, here’s your miracle…[So], stand up and fight…” Have a great season! HB
Scrimmage results are flying across chat rooms, newspaper headlines, and blogs all over the commonwealth of Kentucky. The winners believe it is a credible forecast of success, the losers either believe the team was trying to “not show too much” or it is a forecast of a forthcoming “long year.” Well, truthfully, neither is true. Enjoy this article about scrimmages and why the outcome shouldn’t either dampen or intensify your seasonal expectations.
