Collins Notebook (9/1/14)

By blueandblack14 - “We’ve just got to get better.” Collins Coach Jerry Lucas uttered this phrase after his Titans took a loss to South Oldham at home for the first regular-season two-game losing streak in school history. The Titans were destroyed on the ground as South Oldham RB Kevin Kuriger piled up 246 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries. Collins struggled on offense as well, gaining just 190 yards and only 58 on the ground. There were a few bright spots for the Collins offense, however, as Browning Becherer threw at 39 yard TD pass to EJ Burk and a screen pass that Gabe Nash took 80 yards for a TD. Other...

Collins Notebook 8-27-14

By blueandblack14 - The Titans didn’t start out the season quite the way they wanted to on Friday night, losing on the road to Simon Kenton 33-14, but that won’t stop them for having big goals and aspirations for this season. Collins played 32 players Friday night with a lot of them seeing their first varsity action. The youth and inexperience of the Titans showed in the first half, as mistakes and missed opportunities led to a 20-0 halftime lead for Simon Kenton. However, after a lengthy halftime due to a lightning delay, the Titans showed us a bit of what could be to come as they fought back to within 26-14... Read More →
