Getting a College Football Scholarship - Part 3

By Ram - This is part three of a four part series on college recruiting and scholarship acquisition. This is a topic that is widely misunderstood and complicated. Every year, I know of several players who could have received money for college though football but could not because they were not educated in the recruiting process.

Inside North-Eastern Kentucky Football (9-29-13)

By Ram - The Week in Review: For the most part, this week in North-Eastern Kentucky was a yawner. All but, one game was pretty much a forgone conclusion, with the outcomes highly predicable. Fairview remains unbeaten. Lewis continues to surprise some, but as I predicted, they are doing well and will have several more games prior to their matchup that will determine second place in the district, versus Russell. Ashland is improving and will be a much better team by playoff time. Let’s take a look at what happened this week. Lawrence County 38 Raceland 35 Did I say they all were predictable?...

Battle of the unbeatens — Can Wayne sustain its momentum against Corbin?

By Les - Obstacle No. 1 is out of the way for Shawn Thompson’s Wayne County Cardinals, and now they have another tough test in Week 6 against unbeaten Corbin. A win over the 5-0 Redhounds would almost assure Wayne County its respective district’s top seed with remaining district games against Casey County and McCreary Central, but if Corbin can pull off the upset, the Redhounds would have the inside track to the district’s top seed. But this we do know — it’s going to be awful hard to beat Wayne County. The Cardinals handed the Bobcats their worst loss of the season with a 41-6 win this past week,... Read More →
