    Holmes Vs Boone County What does it prove?

    With the bulldogs beating the rebels EASILY last night Does this prove that they are the best in the 9th region? Or is it just another game the bulldogs should have won? Is the biggest test of their season friday? Let me know your thoughts

    It proves they won a game they should have won. No one thought Boone County had a chance to win that game.

    As to proving who is the best in the ninth region, Holmes is #1 in the region with little dissent and they will get to prove to everyone they are #1 in the region in a couple weeks at the BOK.

    Here is an article you and others may enjoy concerning the chase for perfection:

    The last team to reach Rupp undefeated was Clay County in 1989.

    Same team former Holmes coach Dave Henley played for.

    Henley played for Carlisle County, and in 1983 as a senior they lost in the state finals to Henry Clay 35-33 in 3-OT's

    I see where you got the "Clay" part... and I almost just typed that they lost to "Henley Clay"...

    You're right.

    I knew it was one of those southern schools that started with a C.

    Bulldogs should have beat Boone and did, the answer to the second question will be answered friday night. I personally don't think NCC has enough speed.

    Ran one of the best motion offenses I have ever seen. Craner Slone was the head coach. Good dude!

    Henley's not from here? I thought I read a few years ago that he had some relatives in this area.
