Throw records out the window, as a new season begins in the Bluegrass state. In the 8th region it is really hard to say who will be playing in Roy Winchester gymnasium.

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.
