    Former Rockcastle football players & brothers featured in their university newspaper

    Here is a story about two former Rockcastle boys that appeared in the Washington University in St. Louis "Student Life" newspaper. It gets a little "hinky" in parts, but, I guess that was the take on the interview by a city kid.

    Wonder why they didn't attend Garrard County High School.

    They have family that works in Mt. Vernon. Bus ride to Lancaster vs. riding with family to work in Mt. Vernon and same distance drive. I'd take the car ride myself. They attended Rockcastle from kindergarten to graduation.

    There are always a few Garrard kids that go to Rockcastle. The distance from deep southern Garrard to Lancaster means they're closer to Mount Vernon.

    I've wondered before if they would have had much of an impact, if any, on Mark Scenters 2011 Semi final team. Garrard County lost by 7 points to Belfry in Lancaster and a 3A state championship bid that year. That would have been the elder Lake boy's senior year and he was recognized All State offensive line that year. I live in the area where Rockcastle, Madison and Garrard come together and know the boys and Mark Scenters as well.
    I attended the first game for Garrard that year when they played against Clay County. Four overtimes I think and Garrard squeaked it out. Clay had that big Hyde boy that went on to play at UK playing for them in the middle at linebacker. He should have been the noseguard. I was really impressed with Markell Hayes play for Garrard and Billy Abney was coming on for Garrard about then.
