By DragonFire - A Not So Brief History of the Bowling Green-Warren Central Rivalry Friday’s game against Warren Central will mark the 999th football game in Bowling Green High history, and the 100th game against a Warren County opponent.

Friday would have been the 1000th game coinciding with a home game against their chief rival.) Once upon a time, there were no teams within Warren County that even existed to play the Bowling Green Purples. Most of the small community... Read More →

Inside South-Central Kentucky Football (10-14-13)

By Ram - “Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me”. Well, that’s not totally true, words do invoke a response from us, maybe not an outward response, but we, as people, are emotionally affected by the words that are said to us. Of course, the above commonly used quote was meant as a way of teaching us a lesson about not responding the wrong way to being called names, but lets look at a not so derogatory name we may be called - Coach. Lets start with a little background before we get into what the word means: think back to what coaches that you know did for you. I... Read More →

Recent history matters more in this battle between old rivals Danville, Somerset

By thegeneral - There are rivalries that go way back, and then there are rivalries like Danville-Somerset. The Admirals and Briar Jumpers don’t play every year, but they have played often enough and long enough to develop a history that few regular rivalries can equal. But kids don’t care about a hundred years of history, so we’ll talk about that later. In the here and now, both teams badly need a win in their showdown Friday at Somerset’s Clark Field.
