Game Report Ashland 51 Lawrence County 20

By newarkcatholicfan - Last night at Putnam Stadium in Ashland the hometown Tomcats hosted Lawrence County to kick off the 2012 football season. Ashland, who lost a ton of talent wasted no time in letting the quiet crowd know that they were not lacking in talent as they sprinted to a 44-7 first half lead. Two defensive touchdowns by Cade O’bryan, on back to back possessions was the high light for the defense and a long pass play from new quarterback Aaron Elam to Logan Salow was the big play for the Tomacat offense. Freshman Quinton Baker would end his huge night with three touchdowns and three, two point... Read More →

2012 Kentucky High School Football Preview - Class 4A

By theguru - 1. Highlands – What else needs to be said? It’s Highlands. Like Trinity in 6A, Highlands has been unbeatable. However, Patick Towles is gone and CovCath came within five points last year in the regular season match-up. The Birds return a lot on Offense. Towles is a big loss, but his spot should be capably filled by Sr. Donovan McCoy. Jr. Drew Houliston is a very capable backup who would be starting at a lot of high schools. Turner, Christian, Collinsworth and Green are all very talented receivers, who give the Birds many options. Colin Seidl (a RB last year) could either line up as a RB or in... Read More →

2012 Kentucky High School Football Preview - Class 2A

By theguru - 1. Covington Holy Cross - Head Coach Bruce Kozerski’s Indians return as defending State Champions. Will they be able to repeat the most successful year in school history after graduating an outstanding senior class? First year QB Travis Gabbard looks to be the man to take the snaps, but he will see preasure from new arrival, Mitch Trail, from Arizona. Whichever man gets the job should have enough time to run the plays. The offensive line returns starters Alex Russell (SR), Andrew Monson (SR), and Jacob Ketron (JR) who look to lead what they hope will be the toughest offensive line in class... Read More →

2012 Kentucky High School Football Preview - Class 3A

By theguru - 1. Central – Sure; record-setting tailback, Anthony "Ace" Wales is gone, but this is Central. With this team, it's just a matter of reloading with the best collection of speed and athletes to be found in any of the smaller classes. The Yellowjackets won last year's state title, even though Wales missed much of the final with a shoulder injury. As usual, they'll be tested by a rugged schedule that includes 6A powers St. Xavier, Ballard, Manual and Pleasure Ridge Park. Deris Cox will assume Wales' role as the primary ball carrier. But the real strength of the Yellowjackets is their swarming... Read More →

2012 Kentucky High School Football Preview - Class 1A

By theguru - 1. Mayfield - Which was the real Mayfield? Was it the Cardinals that destroyed nearly everything in its path among the Class A ranks for much of the last two seasons, or was it the beaten-up squad that admittedly laid an egg in the state championship game? This club could go either way, as it pursues a second state title in three seasons and a fourth consecutive trip to Bowling Green. Jonathan Jackson, a 6-0, 215-pound senior, is far western Kentucky's top two-way player and one of the state's top linebackers. He anchors a defense that could be among Class A's best, despite the fact that DE... Read More →

2012 Kentucky High School Football Preview - Class 6A

By theguru - 1. Trinity – In 2011, with many local teams refusing to face them in non-district games, the Rocks were forced to schedule powerful teams from Tennessee, Indiana and Ohio to fill out their schedule. Trinity not only cruised to another 6A state championship, but they also blasted all of these nationally known programs – parlaying a difficult multi-state schedule into a national championship. The majority of a marvelous offensive line graduated, but many of the rest return, and they’re looking for an encore performance against an identical schedule. This team is loaded with a phenomenal, five... Read More →

By newarkcatholicfan - The football violations included providing a scholarship check to an athlete before his certification, accepting two recruits' Facebook friend requests before the allowed date, texting a recruit's father and giving recruits impermissible documents.

2012 Kentucky High School Football Preview - Class 5A

By theguru - 1. Bowling Green – Bowling Green begins the defense of their 2011 5A title with only four returning starters – just one of them on defense. The purples lost 30 seniors to graduation last year. That said, their 29-7 scrimmage victory againstManual was very encouraging. Also encouraging are the very strong junior and sophomore classes, including AP first team all-state WR Necarius Fant, who snagged 56 passes for over 1100 yards and nine scores last year. Head Coach Kevin Wallace really likes junior QB Devin Hayes, who takes over for the departed Scooter Hollis. Junior running backs Blue Tisdale... Read More →

3 on 3 Olympic Basketball?

By HammerTime - Could three-on-three basketball join the Olympic lineup? LONDON – Could three-on-three basketball be coming to the Olympics? If three-on-three basketball is added to the Olympic program, it likely will be no less intense than the action in this game between the USA and Argentina. Sponsored Links It will if FIBA, the international governing body, has its way. Secretary-general Patrick Baumann said Saturday that his group planned to propose it to be played as early as the 2016 Rio Games. Read More →

Rodriguez's long journey

By LRCW - A great story about Eddy Rodriguez and the long journey to the majors by the former Reds farm player. I wish it showed him being interviewed. He really got emotional when talking about his mom, and all the sacrifices she had made. Read More →

2011 Kentucky High School Football Class 1A Playoff Preview

By theguru - REGION 1 Favorite: Without a doubt, it's defending state champion Mayfield, also the #1 team in the final BGP rankings. The Cardinals rolled through the regular season unscathed for the second consecutive year, albeit in slightly different fashion than last year's team, which had one of the state's most explosive small-school offenses in recent memory. This year, it's been on the strength of a stingy defense. Led by linebacker Jonathan Jackson, end LaBront Scott and cornerback William Higginson, all returning starters, the first-team unit allowed only 40 points even while enduring... Read More →
