    That would be a great idea. I would say that the folks at Rose Hill would love to have something like that for the programs also. You know, Fletch was in the first graduating class. He could probably help out a little. I belive he actually played basketball also...(that is when he wasn't sleeping in class) can you picture that? Now he's the one keeping students from sleeping in his class.

    I am a little surprised you have not received more responses from applicants at this point. Wednesday is the deadline, at this point, and you only have a handful to choose from. Hopefully everyone is doing research and you will get many applications on Wednesday.

    You guys and gals need to take advantage of this offer, it's a great return for a small investment of your time.

    I agree Watusi, maybe some do not understand the thread , maybe it should read " Free BGP for students", or something. I know out of 5,000 members there are more HS and college students out there...

    The problem is - if they don't drop their name in the hat, we don't know who they are. Any applicants out there?

    Garrard County High School Football History

    Garrard County High School opened its doors in the fall of 1964, welcoming students from five high schools within the county. County high schools Buckeye, Camp **** Robinson, and Paint Lick consolidated with city high school Lancaster. The fifth school was Mason High School which was the black high school in Garrard County prior to desegregation. The campus was built on land donated by the Duncan family and in fact the large tree in front of the school was a bargaining tool in the school board obtaining the land—if the school was to be built there, the tree had to remain. It is still there today! The first season of football was played just up Maple Avenue at Leavell Field at Lancaster Elementary. That field is now home to GCHS soccer. Grateful for the Duncan families generosity, the new football field that would be opened the following season (1965) was named Duncan Field. Several years later it was renamed Duncan Field at Dyehouse Stadium in honor of longtime Lancaster High School and three year Garrard County High School coach Coy Dyehouse.

    Waddell Murphy, a former standout at Western Kentucky, was named the first head coach in Golden Lions history. Garrard debuted at old Irvine High School and played to a 6-6 tie, one of three ties in the first season for Garrard. The other two were both in Lancaster, against Knox Central and Nicholas County. Garrard County would only be involved in one more tie game, another 6-6 game, this time at home against the Kentucky Military Institute in 1968. The KHSAA would adopt a national tie-breaker system soon after. The 1964 squad would finish the season with an awkward record of 3 wins, 3 losses, and 3 ties. They allowed only 99 points that season (11.0 per game), which still ranks fifth all-time at Garrard after 39 seasons.

    After a 3-7 campaign in 1965, Coy Dyehouse moved from assistant to head coach and promptly led the Golden Lions to a 7-3 record. Highlighting the season was the first ever victory over Boyle County, 20-6. This was truly remarkable when considering that the Rebels had defeated Garrard 56-6 the season prior. With a solid crop of seniors, the 1967 season promised to be a successful one. The Golden Lions didn’t let anyone down, compiling an undefeated 10-0 regular season, which included six shutouts, four of which came in a row (Jessamine County, 41-0; Berea, 27-0; Anderson County, 39-0; Madison Central, 40-0). The streak ended the next week against Harrodsburg, although the Lions still were victorious, 57-6. Ranked #8 in the ENTIRE state, a classes encompassing, the Golden Lions met Bardstown in Lancaster to decide the regional championship. Garrard was a prohibitive favorite, lead by Central Kentucky Conference Coach of the Year Dyehouse and first-team all-stater, the late Norman Davis. It wasn’t in the cards, however, as Garrard fell to the Tigers 26-20. Bardstown would go on to win the Class A state championship leaving many Lions fans to ponder what might have been.

    Dyehouse would coach one more season before his untimely death in 1968 sent the program into a downward spiral. A 7-3 campaign in 1969 under Charles Harkleroad was the zenith before five straight losing seasons (four 3-7's, one 4-6). Two of Garrard’s worst offensive seasons came during this stretch, scoring only 74 points in 1970 and following that with only 72 points in 1971. The streak would end in 1975 under Coach Sam Burke although it technically wasn’t a winning season, a 5-5 mark. The next actual winning season wouldn’t come until 1978, when led by first-team all-state Wilbur Dunn, the Lions finished 8-2. Garrard County High School had went eight seasons without a winning record! Normalcy returned the following season when GC finished 2-8 and were shutout three times in their last five games.

    Things didn’t look much more promising in the eighties as Garrard County posted losing records in seven of the first eight seasons. A 7-3 campaign under Steve Sullivan in 1985 was the lone highlight. Several dubious distinctions came with the 1980s at Garrard. The 1983 team scored the fewest points ever with 71, including four consecutive shutouts midseason (Anderson County, 21-0; Paris, 28-0; Harrodsburg, 35-0; Lincoln County, 6-0). The 1982 team allowed 67 points against Somerset, a record that would last eighteen years, while the 1984 team allowed 61 points to a dominant Paris team. The lowest point was in 1987 when Garrard County completed their worst season in school history. A suprise 20-0 upset victory over old Madison High School was the lone win in an otherwise brutal season. The offense sputtered to only 88 points, while the defense allowed 322, the most ever at Garrard. Seven times in ten games the opponent scored over 30 points. The tide, however, was about to turn.

    Garrard County roared to an 8-2 season in 1989, including losses to Harrodsburg and Frankfort. Controversy marked the Frankfort loss, a 14-9 decision, in which a tough call gave the Panthers a first down late and stole away any chance Garrard had for a final score. Away with it went the hopes of the first playoff berth in 21 years. The ‘88 team allowed only 63 points all season, eclipsing the mark of 65 set in 1967 by the last playoff team. Two years later Garrard County wooed Danville assistant coach Jerry Perry to Lancaster and with him came the makings of the finest era in Garrard County High School football history. In Perry’s first season the Golden Lions finished the regular season with an 8-1 record. Included in that was a tight 15-13 victory at Harrodsburg which secured Garrard’s first playoff berth in 23 years. This was the last year only two teams per district made the playoffs and would be Garrard’s first of seven consecutive trips to the playoffs. An obviously over-hyped and over-matched Golden Lion club fell victim to Paris, 33-7. It was the tenth loss in ten meetings with the Greyhounds.

    Garrard would win its first playoff game the next season, a close 35-28 win over Campbellsville. The Lions and Eagles would meet four more times in the playoffs in the next five years. Riding a 10-1 record, Garrard traveled to Springfield to meet Washington County in the regional semifinals. A lightning storm the season before had cancelled the Garrard/Washington game. Earlier in the 1991 season Garrard had defeated Washington County 19-17 on a late safety. A nip-and-tuck affair saw two horrendous calls make the difference, a 14-13 victory for the commanders. Washington County head coach Jimmie Reed walked onto the field to reverse a fumble call which Garrard had recovered. Not only that, the ball was placed about ten yards closer to the goalline. Still in the game, Charlton Jeffrey trotted out to kick the winning field goal. One goalpost official slipped during the kick and the second official looked down at his partner instead of the goal. But looked at one another and eventually signalled “no good,” much to the disbelief and chagrin of the Garrard faithful. Eleven seasons have since passed but no one in Lancaster has forgotten!

    Perry brought perhaps his finest team to the field in 1993. Lead by freshman quarterback and future all-stater and Eastern Kentucky standout Nick Sullivan they would score 474 points on the season, shattering the old record of 421. A close 13-12 win at Harrodsburg sealed the district title and two playoff romps over Green County and Campbellsville set up the regional final at Bardstown. Garrard was ranked #1 in Class A while Bardstown was coming off a state runner-up appearance in 1992. A late run by Sheldon Burnside got Garrard in position to try a 42-year field goal. Junior kicker Adam Montgomery’s kick fell just yards short and Bardstown escaped with a 14-13 win. Twice now Bardstown had taken away potential state titles from ol’ GC.

    The 1995 campaign saw Garrard return to the regional final, this time against Harrodsburg. A week earlier Garrard had finally defeated Bardstown, leading an over-joyed Coach Perry to exclaim “ding-dong the witch is dead!” The joy wouldn’t last long, however, as Garrard fell to Harrodsburg 14-6. A telling stat during Perry’s tenure was the inability to consistently beat Bardstown and Harrodsburg. Garrard was a combined 3-9 against the two schools during that seven year stretch, although it must be noted that the average score in those twelve games was 18-9. Perry would leave following the 1996 season. He took with him the best record by a coach in Garrard history: 65-18. The 1993 team had the most victories (12), while two other times he won 10 games. Two Garrard players, Nick Sullivan and Gordon Crowe would be all-state. Both went on to stellar collegiate careers, at EKU and UK respectively.

    Jeff Hester, a former Garrard County and Morehead State player, took over the reigns in 1997. After seven seasons as assistant coach under Jerry Perry, Hester finally got his shot. What he got was a tough Class AA district and a sharp drop-off in talent. Hester’s first team finished 2-8 and the next season saw a 3-7 mark. 1999 would mark a return trip to the playoffs for Garrard County, this time as a #4 seed. On the road at Newport, the Golden Lions pulled off a remarkable upset, winning a double-overtime thriller, 28-27. A second consecutive upset seemed too tough and the Lions lost at Lexington Catholic. While earlier in the season GC had lost at Catholic 43-14, the playoff game proved much closer, a tight 22-7 ballgame. The next year Garrard could not sustain the momentum it had obtained the year before and bottomed out at 2-8. Hester left that offseason to become an assistant at Boyle County. While many could complain that Hester was unable to maintain the foundation Perry had built, it must be noted that three state champions came from GC’s district during his four seasons (Bourbon County, 1997; Boyle County, 1999 & 2000). Also, Danville finished runner-up to Caldwell County in 1998. Many could argue as well that Lexington Catholic was the best team in the state each of those four seasons! More than anything, Garrard just inherited an impossible district.

    Steve Stonebraker was hired away from Casey County in the summer of 2001 in hopes of leading Garrard back to being a state-wide power. In his first season, Stonebraker lead the Lions to a 7-4 finish, losing a rain-soaked playoff game at eventual state semifinalist Mason County. The second season under Stonebraker was a disappointment that saw the Lions open the season a promising 3-1 only to struggle in district play and finish off 4-6. A new year in 2003 awaits with a move to a new district. Casey County, Russell County, Wayne County and Corbin make up the new district which includes many old foes. Gone are the long trips to Northern Kentucky. Hopefully better days lie ahead for Garrard County football.

    In all, Garrard County has played 39 seasons of football. At the end of the 2002 season they had compiled an all-time record of: 203 wins, 199 losses, and 4 ties...a winning percentage of .505. Ten seasons have ended with playoff berths, three times finishing regional runner-up. While the tradition and history at Garrard might not be as storied as other schools in the state, it certainly is exciting to fans from all over the county. Buckeye to Camp ****, Paint Lick to Lancaster.

    Larry A. Ryle High School

    Ryle Football

    Ryle High School started it’s football program in 1992 under Coach Eckstein who is the current coach at Carrol County High School. Ryle only competed in 5 varsity games it’s first football season, and went 1-4 in play. The next year they went 3-7 in there first full season of Varsity, and played in 3A. Every since then they have compiled a overall 57-45 win/loss record.

    Early on Coach Eckstein was blessed with some good running backs, and just like it’s close neighbor, Boone County High school, Ryle adopted the “smashmouth”offense . In the early years of the football team such players as All-State running-back Eddie Smith,Linebacker Josh Ray, QB Willie Schrogie,DL Josh Turner,OL Dustin Tymensky, and RB Jamie Elliot led the team to some exciting seasons, and a few playoff appearances in 3A. The coaching staff since then has almost completely dismantled. Coach Eckstein is now the head coach at Carrol County. Coach Kyle Neiderman is on the Boone County coaching staff. Coach Riegler is currently the Head Coach at Scott High School. Coach Ashworth is a principal at Glen Este High School in Ohio, and Coach Parrish is the current Head Coach at Ludlow. In 1998 the football team went 7-5 losing 14-28 in the playoffs to Covington Catholic. They also played Beechwood who won state that year to a close 22-27 loss at Nippert Stadium. After the season Coach Eckstein left the Ryle Football Program.

    In the offseason prior to the 1999 football season Ryle brought in current Head Coach Kyle Hockman. Hockman brought with him a more pass originated offense. With a gunning quarterback in Justin Parr, a 1st Team All-State Wide Receiver in Micheal Setters, and a quick slashing All-State Running back in Travis Grant, Ryle was set to make some noise in there new 4A class. The 1999 was a year full of good games. They picked up there first win over Covington Catholic in school history early in the season. Ryle also played Shane Boyd lead Henry clay to a 21-14 Henry Clay win, and Class 4A Runner Up Bryan Station to a 22-7 Bryan Station win. Ryle might not have had the best record, but win it came time for the playoffs they were defiantly a force to be reckoned with. They traveled to state perennial power Trinity High School in Louisville for a first round playoff game, and lost 26-32 in double overtime. 2000 saw much of the same type of action. The team went 8-4. They also recorded the first Home Playoff win in against Ballard, but soon fell to Class 4A Runner-up Trinity 35-3 in the second round. 2001 was a unsuccessful season, and the first losing season for Coach Kyle Hockman. The team went 2-8, and failed to make the playoffs. 2002 was a different season though with the team going 5-6, and getting wins over school rivals Covington Catholic, and Boone County. They qualified for the playoffs, and lost to Trinity High School in the first round.

    Gone are the days of the black and silver Raiders, and in are the days of the Orange, Black, and White Raiders. The team has gone from new to a quality program in the eyes of many Northern Kentucky people. The smashmouth team left, and the finesse team arrived. A great coach left, and a great coach arrived. The one thing that is sure though is that the Ryle Football Program is on the rise. One thing that has helped of lately is the success of the Ryle Sports Festival. It’s a multi-event sports festival held at the beginning of every football season, and the football games are phenomenal .Ryle is currently 2-0 in the bowl game, and the success of the event has opened many doors for the Ryle Football Program. Ryle is not known as the new team on the block anymore, but rather as a team to be reckoned with, and Coach Hockman and company look to continue that thought in the 2003 season.

    hey guys...

    This is an awesome idea and very generous from you guys. Just like Eku05, I am from Belfry too. I really have been a good fan of the football team in recent years, but there is no real resource for us to get information on our past teams. Like Eku, I could go several years back and give knowledge from memory the best I can.

    I am in college 3 hours from home, so there is little chance of me going to the high school and getting records. (honestly, i doubt they would provide me with them.)

    Let me know what can be done. I would love to earn one of these scholorships. Does our application have to come in school report form, or can we try something more creative?
