    I think the schedule should have said 63rd district tournament instead of 64th unless for some reason they moved Russell which I haven't heard about.

    How are things going in Flatwoods? There has been a lot of turmoil at Russell in recent history. Will this hire be the answer to some of their problems. I believe they have some decent players returning. Will that result is more wins?

    This coach seems to have them working hard based on what I've saw on twitter, but we'll have to see if it leads to more wins. Russell just about beat Boyd County this past season and beat Ashland once although Villers was out. Russell is right there, just need to be able to win close games consistently. Russell can be pretty good, It's all about how much hard work they put in.
