    @Cats3x ...Poynter has been around the block and he's a great coach. He's taken on tough jobs, and given the correct support, he's done well with them. He was the HC at Bellevue most recently. That was a tough one for him, driving about an hour and 45 minutes each way to work, and dealing with a program that is really struggling for players and support.

    Bath has some talent coming up.

    Former Bourbon County and Bellevue head coach. He spent 3 seasons at Bourbon County (17-17) and 2 seasons at Bellevue (14-10)

    I'm glad Bath is getting a good coach. Coach Poynter deserves a shot and will do well at Bath. If there is any talent he will figure out how to get the most out of the kids. I hope it is his final stop and he has a long career at Bath. Good luck!!

    I believe that to have a friend a man must first be one. That God put the firewood there, but that every man must gather and light it for himself. In being prepared physically, mentally and morally to fight when necessary for that which is right.

    Poynter will have 15 SR's on this team all with varsity experience (and nearly as many JR's). He and his staff will have the Wildcats in competition for the district title this year.

    Right on 64. Between Mt. Sterling and Morehead. 15-20 miles from both. Good little spot.
