    A school official told me once that one year they qualified for the region at Mason County and the tournament officials produced a pamphlet and write-up on all the teams. The section on Estill said, “Not much is known about Estill County.” Lol. He said they were located so far south in that region that they didn’t play any of the teams in the northern counties and the article was accurate. Which as far as location they’re not any better off in the 14th, along with Powell County they’re the farthest school located to the west, in their case northwest. But the competition is not as formidable as the 10th.
    The 10th didn’t make much sense to me.

    I agree, 10th wasn’t a good fit for Estill County.
    But their problem is they are in a far corner of any region they could possibly be in. Their location places them at the southern end of the 10th, southeastern end of the 11th, as far north as location can be in the 12th and 13th, and the farthest school to the northwest in the 14th. They’re actually not a good fit for any region if one is looking at it geographically.

    The job will be removed as open on Dec. 12th which is next Wednesday so we should know something very soon. Not much interest in this job outside of Irvine.

    While I was out in Richmond yesterday I did hear that theirs some assistants at some local schools that have shown interest.

    Jordan Marcum is one of the candidates. Has a good relationship with Estill superintendent, Jeff Saylor.
