Fort Campbell should beat Ballard Memorial in a couple of weeks to earn a return trip to Mayfield in the first round of the playoffs. Jayden Stinson was 9-10 passing for 251 yards and 3 TDs for Mayfield. They outgained Fort Campbell 400-92.
This used to be one of the marquee series in the late 1970s and early 1980s when the winner would be the team to make the playoffs. Some very, very good teams at Mayfield and Fort Campbell sat at home in November because the other won the regular season game.
I'm not sure what the problem is at Fort Campbell. It's hard to imagine a program that won three state titles in three years goes a decade later and is lucky to win three games. Yes, they have kids move away every year but they seemed to keep their nucleus intact from 2006-11.
One issue is the dumb government rule that says kids cannot attend a DODea school (Fort Campbell or Fort Knox) once their enlisted parent retires from the Army. They then lose those kids, usually of high school age, to the Clarksville, Tenn. schools right outside their door. They can live on post but their kids can't go to FCHS. They have lost some good kids in all sports due to this.
