The Brothers Hughes hope to be The Brothers Grimm to 2A, District 6- @KammHughess_ @krishughes2026 @1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps @minguabeefjerky @HopkinsCentral @evans02_mike @840WHAS @sfitz_840whas

Somerset is 4-2 with a huge tilt upcoming on the Riverbank against Breathitt High

Kam (’24) and Kris (’26) Hughes are leading the Briar Jumpers back to prominence

The Hughes brothers have come up huge for the Briar Jumpers this season. The Jumpers are 4-2 with a one point loss to a Class 4A team with the same won/loss record (Perry County Central) and a seven point loss to a 1A team which currently stands at 6-0 (Campbellsville). That makes Somerset close to 6-0 themselves. Somerset will travel to Jackson, Kentucky to play Breathitt on “The Riverbank” with the winner virtually guaranteed the regular season, district crown.

The Brothers Grimm  (die Brüder Grimm or die Gebrüder Grimm) Jacob and Wilhelm were German academic and cultural researchers of some renown. If you don’t know them by “The Brothers Grimm” then you would certainly know of the works they collected and published into folklore.

“Cinderella,” “Hansel and Gretel,” “Little Red Riding Hood,” and “Sleeping Beauty,” were among some of the more noteworthy of their collection, though certainly not the only works with which we would expect you to be familiar. Jacob died in 1863 while Wilhelm died in 1859.

Calpreps.com says on a neutral field: Somerset 31 (75%), Breathitt High 20 (25%)

Who isn’t dead at all are The Brothers Hughes. They are alive and well and so are the district title hopes of their team, the Somerset High Briar Jumpers.

Kris Hughes, ’26

We wrote an article about them with one of the more clever titles we have ever before mustered. Do you remember the article, Landon Fields from Somerset High School is One of the Baddest Bunnies in the Briar Patch? We first ran it on April 18, 2018. Hard to believe that was more than five (5) whole years ago.

Kam and Kris Hughes are some mighty bad bunnies themselves. Kam is a ’24 prospect who is tearing it up this season. He has rushed for 781-yards, so far, and scored 12-rushing TD’s. He has 211-receiving yards, two (2) INT’s, 44-tackles and a combine verified 4.5-second, 40-yard dash.

Kris Hughes (’26) has rushed for 427 yards while scoring six (6) TD’s

Kris is a ’26 prospect whose production isn’t lagging very far behind big brother. Kris has gained 427-yards rushing, scored six (6)-rushing TD’s, caught 18-passes for 222-yards and two (2) TD’s while registering 34-tackles.

Somerset sits presently at 4-2. They are a one-point loss to Perry County Central (4A, 4-2) and a seven point loss to Campbellsville (1A, 6-0) away from being 6-0.

Breathitt sits at 2-4 but lost to the same Perry County Central team by three (3) points and just lost a nail-biter to Letcher County (4A, 4-2), 25-21, in Whitesburg. Plus, the game is being played on The Riverbank in Jackson, Kentucky; a tough place to play.

On a neutral field, Somerset is an 11-point favorite with a 75% chance of winning. How many points is the home field worth to Breathitt? I suppose we will learn that on Friday night.

KPGFootball's call: Somerset 35, Breathitt 28
