By ChiefSmoke - If you know of a family that would benefit from this information, please share the link below. Thank you- ChiefSmoke This time of year, parents begin to ask me about summer camps for their son. Here is how I handled it when I coached my oldest son, John Combs. He went to three tough camps that worked him hard and helped him improve at the linebacker position. Before his freshman season, he spent 3 days at the UK camp, working with Chuck Smith. Before his sophomore season, he spent three days at the Tennessee camp, working with Sal Sunseri. Prior to his junior year, he spent three days... Read More →

Signs: A good one.... and spring football is on the way

By ChiefSmoke - 60268 My good friend Bruce Jones brought back our helmets today from the reconditioner, Capital Varsity. Bruce does a great job making sure our stuff is right when it gets back to us and I really appreciate that about him. As we popped open those boxes and got out our helmets, which always look new when they get back from the reconditioner, I felt like a little kid again. I am thankful that I am getting ready for another season of football. It always takes me back to when I was four years old and my mom took me out to see my Dad one summer afternoon at Boyle County. He and the... Read More → Girls' Basketball Feb 2 Wrap Up

Inside the 9th Region (1/31)

By Walter - With three weeks left in the regular season, the top 3 have pretty much remained the same, while one team has emerged a clear 4th best team in the region. Here are this week's rankings. 1. Covington Catholic (20-4) After a bit of an upset loss to South Laurel, the Colonels have won 8 straight and seem to be clicking on all cylinders, despite being without leading scorer CJ Fredrick.

Inside the 15th Region (1-30-17)

By 15th Region - Overview: The 57th district has been extremely fun this season and week nine did not disappoint. Timmy Dalton and Mason Blair continue to be top 20 in the nation in scoring per max preps. The top of the region is beginning to separate its self from the rest as post season rapidly approaches. Although difficult to do this season, we are back to traditional rankings after nine weeks of play. 1. Johnson Central (17-6) – The Golden Eagles went 3-0 in week nine with wins over Lawrence County, Belfry and Sheldon Clark. In the Lawrence County game, Mason Blair went for a school record 58...

By mcpapa - Last week saw the region's top team's 16-game winning streak snapped and the region's new number 2 take home the All-A hardware. Here we go... 1. Campbell County (20-2, 8-1 region). Coach Russell's squad ran into a buzzsaw at state top-5 Covington Catholic last week, bringing an end to "the streak". Bertsch, Day and Hegyi tallied double figures and hung tough for the better part of three quarters, but CVH and crew were too much. The Camels rallied later on for easy victories over Montgomery County and Bourbon County, with Hegyi and Bertsch again leading the way. Harrison County,... Read More →

The Firm Always Knows Best- Smith, Smith, Coverdale & Holcomb

By ChiefSmoke - I got a phone call today from Mike Holcomb. Great guy and one of the greatest HS football coaches of all time in our state. Here is a column on "THE FIRM." Smith, Smith, Coverdale and Holcomb. The Firm. Specifically, the four names are Homer Smith, Chuck Smith, Andrew Coverdale, and Mike Holcomb. I hear that expression several times through the season and every now and then during the offseason. John Arn (our former oline coach and defensive coordinator) came up with the phrase but I think Shawn Thompson (the defensive coordinator before John Arn) was the first to announce that the...

Inside the 3rd Region (1/30)

By ApolloFan98 - Apollo retains their top spot this week, but the gap between them and the rest of the region may have gotten a little closer. After a disappointing showing against Bardstown on Saturday, it will be interesting to see how the Eagles respond. Owensboro is the team to watch, after getting a big time win over a very good Evansville Bosse team. Outside Apollo, Daviess County has shown the most consistency, while Owensboro Catholic continues to prove up and down. Outside the city, Ohio County looks like they may be the team to emerge down the stretch. 1. Apollo Eagles(17-3) SAME - The Eagles... Read More →
