The Tigers graduated only a few seniors and return almost every starter on offense and defense. A large number of freshmen and sophomores last year started and/or saw significant playing time. It is still a young team. They appear to have had a great offseason, particularly in the weight room, and the remaining core of the team is very blue collar. Rising sophomore QB Brady Clark has gained a little size and appears poised for a more consistent sophomore campaign. Rising junior H-back Elijah Rogers had a stellar sophomore season and is a dual-threat player. They must replace the right side of the offensive line. While Central is easily the class of the district, the rest of the district lost a lot to graduation, and the postseason draw this year is favorable. If this ship stays the course and avoids too much battle damage, I would expect Bardstown to be playing for a region championship.
