    A little disagreement in the Highlands vs. Holmes game back in 1974. Highlands won 7-0.

    Phil "Whitey" Simms in 1973 playing for Louisville Southern. The Trojans lost 16-0 to Trinity in the Kentucky AAA state finals. At that point in time, the AAA division was established solely for the Jefferson County high schools.

    Not sure of where the nickname came from, but we were called that name throughout the football season.

    Ashland 1929

    One of the seasons in a 6 year stretch (1926-1931) where they Tomcats were unbeaten by any team in Kentucky. A win over Male in Louisville. Looks like Richmond (consolidated into Madison Central) and Catlettsburg (consolidated into Boyd County) didn't even see 'em coming when they played Ashland.

    Coach Paul Jenkins was one of the real Kentucky coaching giants in the first half of the 20th century. He experienced unparalleled success during that era coaching football at Ashland: 62-6-2 over seven years with five unbeaten teams and a few mythical "state championships". In addition to football, he also coached basketball for the Tomcats, going 79-9 over three seasons. He left Ashland in the mid 30's to return to his hometown of Louisville to coach football at Male, where he endured further success. He eventually moved to Florida to serve as the athletic director and football coach at a couple of schools before retiring over sixty years ago.

    Before getting into coaching, Jenkins was a multi-sport star at UK, excelling in both football and basketball. Quite an accomplished individual.

    1907 Paducah High School football team.

    Paducah-Tilghman replaced Paducah High School in 1921, and adopted the school's rivalry with Mayfield High School. The rivalry stands as the 2nd oldest rivalry in Kentucky.

    1907 was the 4th meeting between Mayfield and Paducah High. The game was a 5-5 tie. Check out this snippet from the McCracken County Public Library's entry about the old days of the rivalry:

    “Paducah High School Boys Return in Disgust” reads the headline of the Nov. 11, 1907 article in the Paducah Evening Sun. The short article only quotes an unnamed Paducah High School team member:

    “Speaking about raw deals, we got one at Mayfield. We went through the lines four abreast and mopped up with the home boys. In the last half, when we had the score 5 to 0 in our favor, a fumble by one of the Mayfield boys was picked up by a Mayfield substitute, who made a touchdown. The substitute was not in the game. We played all around the boys, but they tried to take the game from us by fair or foul means.”

    And if we have learned anything about history, sports, football or rivalries, we know there are two sides to every coin. The final score – a 5-5 tie – seems undisputed, at least. (Also, we’re slightly befuddled at a touchdown being considered 5 points, but we’re just reporting the facts here.)

    The Mayfield Daily Messenger reported on Nov. 12, 1907 that there was a fair amount of disgust among Mayfield’s own ranks. The visiting boys, the article stated, began their “ugly tactics” as soon as the game began.

    “The Paducah boys were a set of rowdies and tried in every way to injure the home boys and one made a break for his pocket as if to bring out a weapon,” the article said.

    The article said the mood was “warlike” before the “big city dudes” vacated the grounds.

    And people complain about officiating today?

    Lord knows what all went on back then.
