For one cold, October Friday night, Whitley County got back to its winning ways

By Les - Many expected Jim Black’s Whitley County Colonels to compete for its respective district title this season even though the Colonels graduated the likes of Boston Bryant, who was a mainstay on both offense and defense during his four years at Whitley County. Add Bryant’s graduation along with succumbing to a lot of injuries while playing one of the toughest slates in the schedule, and you can see why Whitley County got off to its worst start at 0-8 dating back to the 1984 season. But for one cold Friday night in October, all was well at Colonel Stadium, as Whitley County surprised many by... Read More →

McKinney, other two-way players help Boyle succeed with reduced roster

On any given Friday night, at almost any game in Kentucky, you can find plenty of players who play both offense and defense. Even at schools like Boyle County, the Class 4A school for which McKinney plays, two-way players are commonplace, even necessary in a year such as this when the Rebels’ roster is smaller than normal. And while a number of them have helped the Rebels get to where they are this season,... Read More →

How Special are your Special Teams?

By Ram - Football talk always involves conversations about the offense and defense, but there is another unit that helps determine wins and losses. Sure, we all like to hear about the leading rushers, the leading scorers, the leading tacklers, but what about this other specialized unit? We all think of scoring and the pursuit of stopping scorers as key to a victory, but they don’t call Special Teams “Special” for nothing. Every football team has different schemes for their offense and defense, but what do teams do to give them an edge on Special Teams? Some Special Team units are an after... Read More →

By DragonFire - Inside South-Central Kentucky Football (10-21-13) -Friday night provided confirmation of something that everyone knew already, that Bowling Green (7-0) is far and away the best team in the area, truly without peers.
