    Sad times at the Rock. Just found out that one of the best players for Rock has broken his neck. This makes 7 starting players that the Rockets have lost this season.

    Scott Dauttery broke his leg and ankle and was probably the Rockets best defensive lineman and guard on offense. He is only a 10th grader though so this will not hurt next years team.
    Dusty Miller tore his ACL after 3 games and was starting tailback for the last 2 years, a very fast runner with Barry Sanders moves. He was also a junior and will not hurt next years squad.
    Travis Smith was a senior and played center and defenive line was goinf to really help the offense a bunch.
    Jared Brown was a senior played defensive back and wide out has an extreme concussion he got this in the Bell County game the first time they played at halftime.
    Alex Centers awesome wideout and halfback he was a senior and started every game and played great linebacker. Caught a bunch of cluth catches against Mason County and Ashland and Bell County the first time his last game was the Ashland game when he heard he wasn't able to play anymore.
    Bucky Skinner a senior and three year starter payd fullback, tailback, linebacker, punter, placekicker he did it all. He got hit in the 4th quarter in the Bell County game last week and broke his neck, 2 vertabrase are broken and he still played the rest of the game and noone knew he was hurt he gets my iron man award. The tema found out today he has to wear a brace for 4 months. We all need prayers for him and the rst of the injured.
    I would've loved to see this team at full strenght I mean if we can do what we have this year with what we got then what we did have would have been AMAZAING BABY!

    Not to mention our 2 big studs on offense and defense line have had high anke sprains almost all year and out outside linebacker. This team has fought throuhg adveristy and prevailed in more ways that 1 baby, the Rock is hard and must fight fight fight til lthe end. I love my Rockets! Still noone has given themm any respect throughout the year because knowone knew what the team was delaing with and they still have a 11-2 record. Yet no polls include them. Rock dont need no stinking polls though. Sports Overtime represents us well thanks to them!
    Some statitically history for soem folks are that since Rock has been 3A in 1999 they have been to all but 2 regional title appearences and those 2 years they were beaten by a combined 8 points and 2 overtimes. They have won the region 4 times. DOMINANCE and thanks to all the mountain folk who pull for us, I lve the mountains as a ex resident of Harlan County.

    I was in Mt Vernon yesterday and today and ate at this little diner by I 75. I believe Jean's was the name. AWESOME food. Therefore, I'll go with Rockcastle in this one. 21-17.

    That's bad. Hope he gets well soon. What number is he?

    Sounds to be an exciting game, but with this game being in Lexington on the turf I have to give the advantage to Lex Cath.

    I cant believe what I saw yesterday. Rockcastle's offense lining up in 4 and 5 wide throwing everywhere. I know the qb is pretty good but they ran the ball about 3 times. I asked some of the players why and they said it was because Lex Cath did such a good job of shutting down the run that Rockcastle was going to suprise them by opening up the air attack. The place I went to school was Black Mountain Ele. in Harlan Co. the same place JD Harris went to. I am in Evarts today for Thanksgiving. I think the Rock air attack will catch Catholic off guard.

    This is a hard one to predict!! I would feel better about Rockcastle if not for all the injuries. Lex Cath is very good this year, maybe not any better than some of the other semi final teams, but they get the publicity because they are in Lexington. I hope that Rockcastle can win this one. I don't think playing at Lex Cath has any significance whatsoever. Any team that can make a long trip from Rockcastle to Ashland and win against a pretty solid Ashland team at Putnam Stadium WILL NOT be at any disadvantage playing at Lex Cath. BUT the injuries could hurt them. I think at full strength that Rockcastle is the better team this year. Hopefully they have enough left after Ashland and Bell County to get it done.

    Should be a close one regardless of who wins, but I'll give the edge in this one to Rockcastle by 3.

    Rockcastle has impressed me two weeks in a row, but I'm still not convinced. I say Lex Cath all over them.

    42-14

    Sorry but I searched the threads on the 23rd and it was not even on my first page. It must have not received a lot of action so it had been pushed down. That's why I started this one.

    A mod can push these two together if they like.

    The injuries do hurt the Rock in a significant way, but just look how they have capitalized through the season. I am very proud of the Rock this season and hope they continue their run to state. Maybe this is the year who knows....Good luck Rock in your battle against the knights

    Don't give a scouting report!
