Inside the Southeastern Six Football (10-20-13)

By Les - If you’re a fan of the Southeastern Six football teams, then oh, what a Friday it turned out to be during Week Eight action. Four of the six teams won in fine fashion while two lost, as Bell County secured a home playoff game by blanking Corbin while Harlan County moved one step further to a district title by blowing out Whitley County. Knox Central assured itself one home playoff game with a win against Rockcastle County and Williamsburg did the same thing by rolling past Berea. With that said, there are a lot of things to talk about before Week Nine kicks off. Southeastern Six Player... Read More →

Mercer's substitute quarterback appears to be the right man for the job

By thegeneral - Offensive coaches have always tried to get the ball in the hands of their best athletes, and sometimes that means the best athlete has to play quarterback. Craig Yeast did that years ago in his senior season at Harrodsburg, when the Pioneers had no viable options at the position. He couldn’t throw passes to himself, but he could cover a great deal of ground in a hurry. Chris Crawley-Goodman isn’t the same type of player as Yeast, but he is filling the same role for Mercer County, albeit on a temporary basis. And in two games at his new position, he has proved to be a very quick study. ... Read More →

St. Xavier Insider- Week 8

By AvidTiger - 9 games into this season and who would've thought with all the pre-season hoopla the tigers would be .500 and down to 1 of the original big 3? :no: honestly no one. But with the regular season dwindling down, the tigers find themselves fighting for third place in a division they were believed to win going away. Poor coaching, injuries, and a lack of disclipine has plagued this team all season. The tigers look to get above .500 when they travel to manual stadium to face a squad that has all the confidence in the world. Offense The offense definitely showed promise and looked like what the... Read More →

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. (Side note: Mother nature denied some incredible symmetry in the event when the Bryan Station game got rained out earlier this year. 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 →

The game did not disappoint with offensive fireworks on display. Beechwood opened it up with a long TD pass from QB Kyle Fieger to... Read More →

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

By DragonFire - Inside South-Central Kentucky Football (10-14-13) Not a lot to be said this week as only one area team played. #BYEWEEKPROBLEMS (for all you hashtag haters) -South Warren (7-1) rebounded from their first loss of the year in the usual fashion - a shutout win - this a 41-0 win over district mate Adair County. That's the sixth shutout in eight games for the Spartans, and they allowed only 22 yards of offense on the night. They pressured the quarterback early and often, knocking not one, but two quarterbacks from the game. By the end, Adair was down to third stringer (and punter) Brandon... Read More →

Last week I graded Bell County, Corbin and Harlan County, and this week it’s Knox Central’s, Whitley County’s and Williamsburg’s turn.
