Stealing Reps, Utilizing Quality Coaches, 21st century reality

By ChiefSmoke - We had our first day of spring football today and it was a very good start. For the first time, I am not coaching a position. I will continue to call the offense. But, with Trosper, my son, on the way as a QB, I don't need to be his position coach. And, we have a highly qualified, former college QB and former HS head coach on staff in Graham Heasley who is doing a great job with that position. Practice flowed much smoother without me worrying about coaching the QBs. It also freed me up to interact with all positions, coaches, and kids. I really liked that part the best. When I coached the... Read More →

Spring Football 2017

By ChiefSmoke - We will begin our spring practice on Monday (3/13). We can adjust from day to day, but every practice schedule is completed and reviewed by our staff before we begin. All offensive period & some scout offensive scripts are done ahead of time as well. The planning ahead makes sure that we get everything covered and we don't leave anything out. Our first two days are almost exclusively individual/fundamental work by position and special teams. The 3rd day we will go 11 on 11 scrimmage. Regardless of how many days we go, the first scrimmage is usually rough and ugly. I like to get that done... Read More →

10th Region Tournament Recap, Final Rankings and All-Region Players

By mcpapa - The 10th Region tournament, to coin a phrase, came in like a lamb and went out like a lion.

My Journey from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu White Belt to Blue.

By mexitucky - In early September of 2015, I was furious. While not out of my usual character, this was far worse. One of my sons was being bullied at school. The current atmosphere had created a depression in him that was extremely difficult to take. There had been an issue in 6th grade when a person broke into his locker and wrote an incredibly racist comment on a white board inside. Two years later, another racial insult had come his way during a church festival in August. Now in September, he was having issues again. Luckily, this was a personality clash and not outwardly racial. Either way, the... Read More →


High Positive

By ChiefSmoke - Yesterday in church, I saw Coach Phil Morse who was the Defensive Coordinator at Centre College for Coach McDaniel back in the mid 80s. 30 years ago, I was in a Sunday School class with Phil, my dad, and Steele Harmon. I learned alot about Jesus and coaching football. Coach Morse always said there were 4 types of coaches: High (intensity) Positive Low Positive High Negative Low Negative He always said High Positive is best. Low negative is the worst. Of all the coaches I have been around, Chuck Smith(Boyle County) was the most intense & Dale Mueller (Highlands) was the most... Read More →


Getting players names out there??

By CoachAdler - My name is Todd Adler, I'm the head coach at Logan County High School. I'm in my 2nd year being head coach and I'm looking for some advice. Everyone knows the struggle our program has went through over the past years. We are working really hard to try and change that this year!! My question is what is best way to get kids names out there to college coaches? No matter the size of the college, what's the best way to get them to notice a kid? I know of course the kid has to be a player, have size, speed, athletic, etc. Just seems like it's always been a struggle for Logan County kids to get... Read More →


6th Region Tourney Preview

By coachlee - The 6th region has had many say that the depth of good teams this year has made it one of the best regions in all the state this year. When teams like Bullitt East, Butler, Fairdale, and even Iroquois fail to make the regional championships it highlights just how good the Top 10-12 teams really are. All of those aforementioned teams have good victories this past season, but failed to punch their ticket to the 6th regionals. But 8 did and here is the preview for each. All 1st seeds receive the advantage of home games and playing two seeds. In order of the draw: Valley at Southern- ... Read More →


1st Region Tournament Preview

By silo11 - 1st Region Tournament Preview (Part 1 - Quarterfinals) There is only 1 real intriguing matchup in the first round of the Region 1 tournament. Quarterfinals should be great! All games will be at Murray State University in the CFSB Center Wednesday March 1: 6:00 Hickman County vs Mayfield This should not be much of a game. These teams met in the regular season and Mayfield won both games by 40+ points. I do not see much of a change in region play. Hickman just isn’t strong enough to hang with the Guthrie brothers and Mayfield. Mayfield wins big. 7:45 Paducah Tilghman vs... Read More →
