    Corbin Redhounds - 2016 Grade

    A-

    The Redhounds had a very strong season in 2016 for having only made it to the semifinals. During the regular season they averaged 37 points per game, and only gave up a total of 12 touchdown, and their only loss was by 1-point to a solid Mayfield team. Their season was ended in a 42-17 defeat by the undisputed 3A champion Belfry Pirates.

    The biggest knock against Corbin in 2016 was for losing to a team from a lower classification - although Mayfield isn't just any 2A team. As far as losing to Belfry goes, well, in a lot of ways there's not much you can do about that one...Belfry has been rolling with a hell of a head of steam in the 2010's.

    Do you agree with a A- for Corbin? What grade do you give the Redhounds?

    I agree with you @Colonels_Wear_Blue, the Redhounds had a great season, worthy of a solid A-. When your only losses are against blueblood programs like Mayfield and Belfry, you're doing alright.

    They fell just short of completing a tremendous comeback against Mayfield and put a good scare into Belfry before the Pirates woke up and came roaring back. Corbin did what most expected them to do in 2016.

    IMHO they were the 2nd best 3A team.

    Their two losses really centered around a couple very key plays with a similar theme. Against Mayfield they went for two instead of the tie and failed, as a result losing 35-34. Against Belfry the Hounds had all the momentum late in the Third up 17-7 and chose to go for the TD instead of the easy FG, the trick play failed and Belfry took over. Could have been 20-7 heading into the 4th, but instead Belfry turned that turnover into a long TD and it was 17-14 and we know how the rest of the Quarter played out once Uncle Mo shifted.

    Corbin had a win over Louisville Central, a 28-7 win over a very good Danville, a 20-8 win over Southwestern (who at the time most thought was the best 5A team in the East), and a 42-6 win over 5A Whitley County who went 8-2 in the regular sason.
