Inside NKY Footall: 9/23

By Walter - For most teams, this past week was the final “tune up” before preparing for the part of the schedule that actually means something. District play.

Mascot Search

By CoachBuckett - Trying to find the perfect mascot. Behind every athletic team across the world we find a Mascot. What is the thought process in selecting team mascots? As I took the time this weekend to look at the mascots for each of the football playing schools in Kentucky I am puzzled as to how schools decided on a mascot. I give the state credit we have a wide variety of mascots that represent the athletic teams across our great state. We actually have 85 different mascots being used by teams. Because I was unsure how Mascots where selected I thought I would Google to find out? The number one thing... Read More →

Getting a College Football Scholarship - Part 2

By Ram - Getting a College Football Scholarship - Part 2 This is part two of a, more then likely, 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. “My son wants a College Football Scholarship, now what?” A common thought for parents of players who want to help pay for their education by playing football. Don’t worry, you are not the only one who... Read More →

Inside North-Eastern Kentucky Football (9-22-13)

By Ram - The Week In Review: Raceland 42 Coal Grove (OH) 33 The Ram’s dominate offensive and defensive line was tested this week facing a team with a very similar set of linemen. Coach Grove has a large group of linemen and Raceland’s linemen were up to the test. Coal Grove proved to be a formidable opponent for the Rams and the Rams will be better prepared for the playoffs because of this game. Ashland 42 Ironton (OH) 20 The Tomcats are proving to be a team on the move. It also looks like the deciding factor is Quinten Baker. Every game that Baker has rushed for 200 yards has been a big...

Inside the Southeastern Six Football (9-22-13)

By Les - Week Three is now finished, and the big question is — do we know any more about our teams in the Southeastern Six? I say yes. Corbin remained unbeaten at 5-0 by blitzing South Laurel, 53-0, on the road. This is the same Cardinal team that dropped a 36-7 decision to Wayne County in Week One.

Boyle County may be a work in progress, but progress has been good so far

By thegeneral - Dog bites man. The sun sets in the west. Boyle County is pretty good. Perhaps none of those things qualifies as news, but the latter item might at least be a least a little surprising to those who had written this off as a rebuilding season for the Rebels. A month ago, Boyle had more question marks than “The Riddler’s” green bodysuit. The defense was made up almost entirely of first-year starters, the offensive and defensive lines had been reconstructed, and the sheer volume of youth and inexperience left many wondering what kind of year it might be at Boyle.
