    Trimble County cancels 2018 football season due to low numbers

    I just saw this announcement. My heart breaks for the kids who won’t get to play.

    Maybe they should have kept Poynter.

    Best coach they’ve had for sure. But they also have district problems going on that are causing an exodus of students (and teachers) from the district.

    Was talking to a mutual friend of ours yesterday and when he told me the enrollment I was stunned a bit.

    Any chance we see Kentucky move to co-op teams like Illinois?

    What happens to teams on their schedule? Imagine it would be tough to find replacement games this close to season.

    Could make for some good games but long drives.
    I believe there are seven teams in Ohio, that was on Millersport schedule. Millersport,is the team from Ohio that just dropped their football program.
    I know that 2 schools in Indiana also dropped their programs and teams there to should have openings.

    Bracken County was scheduled to play Trimble County on September 7th. They now have the option of playing either Shawnee on Sept 7th or Owen County on Oct 26. Both opponents of Trimble County.
