It's still Option Football

By CoachBuckett - Over the years football coaches have always tried to find ways to get an advantage on their opponents. Coaches have spent countless hours with a pencil and paper creating the next great play, formation, or offensive or defensive schemes to win the next football game. There was a time in this great game of football everyone want to be the next great wishbone team. At one time the wishbone offense was thought of as one of the most innovated offenses in its time. The wishbone goes back to the 1950’s. Although a ton of credit goes to the Texas Longhorns who some would argue made the wishbone... Read More →

Inside the Southeastern Six Football (9-15-13)

By Les - Week Three is now official, and we’ve got one team left undefeated in the Southeastern Six — the Corbin Redhounds. Corbin handled Danville with ease, and is off to its best start since 2009 when Steve Jewell’s Redhounds opened with a 5-0 mark. The Redhounds are much-improved, I’m just hesitant to put them at the top spot of the Southeastern Six rankings just yet. Jewell’s squad’s first four opponents have a combined record of 2-13. Their upcoming game against Wayne County in a couple of weeks will allow me to gauge Corbin a bit better, but make no doubt about it, this team has... Read More →

Greenup County scored several times early on big plays then Raceland’s experience took over while the Rams racked up 480 yards of offense. South Point 23 Boyd County 19 The Pointers scored late in the fourth quarter to come from behind and spoil Boyd County’s plan for the first win of the... Read More →

Mercer might be headed toward its best season since 'that' season

By thegeneral - The last time folks outside of central Kentucky paid much attention to Mercer County was in 2006, when it made off with the Class AA championship in 2006. It’s time to take notice of the Titans again. This Mercer team isn’t yet being considered a championship contender, but it is doing things it hasn’t done since that special season seven years ago — and even longer, in at least one case. To put it simply, the Titans are winning. They have won their first three games out of the gate, giving them their best start since 2006, when they went 15-0. And they are on track for a second...

By CoachBuckett - What makes a team your rival? As I think about all the great rival games in high school football across the state I wonder what really makes that game a rivalry. There are games such as Trinity and Saint Xavier or Male and Manual. Also there are rivals like Mayfield and Paducah Tilghman that have been going on for a 100 years. Everyone will argue what the best rival game in the state. I am not here to debate who is the best. Because the one thing I have learned is every rivalry is important.
