    Floyd Central is now 4-0.

    I have a question. Why do these new consolidated schools nearly always go with “Central” in their name? Then they put Central on the front of their jersey, same as what seems like a hundred other “Central’s throughout the state. Not Floyd Central on the jersey. Only “Central”.

    What would have been wrong with simply calling the new school Floyd County High School?
    At least Harlan County finally got it right.

    I think it was to pay tribute to the two schools being combined Floyd Co and Allen Central this Floyd Central it was.

    I agree totally that the jersey should not just have central on them.

    I’m also the guy that doesn’t like shortened mascot names on the home unis. If they are the jaguars then why put jags on the jersey

    Clark Co does the same thing with calling the Cardinals the Cards

    Isn’t there really only one true Central High School in the state and that school resides in Louisville? They can truly put Central on the name of their uniforms because it’s the actual name of the school.

    If I'm not mistaken doesn't Johnson Central's jersey's say just "Central"?

    I do agree that if your gonna name a school something Central, at least put the first name on the jersey's other than saying "Central"

    Then why not name it Floyd Consolidated??? That’s really all the term Central means anyway.

    The way I see it is:

    South Floyd +Allen Central = Floyd County High School


    No need for the Central. Everyone already knows it’s a consolation into a central system. Once all the schools are combined they’re simply a single county school. Harlan County (consisting of a consolidation of Cawood, Cumberland, and Evarts) decided to go with the name Harlan County instead of Harlan Central. Good for them. There’s already a zillion Central’s.

    Floyd County still has two other high schools.
