Coach Joe Prince - Thoughts on Football

By theguru - Coaches, 1st I am leaving KY to coach in another state. So my opinions are probably irrelevant, but here goes. I do not want to offend anyone in any way, form or fashion. So please just consider what I have to say. 2nd I was very active at one time in the FB Association. I appreciate what the coaches before me did for our programs, i.e.. Gerald Poynter, Lynn Ray, Sam Harp, Jack Morris, etc. Football has been great for me and my family throughout my life. It truly saved me from being just another poor uneducated person. 3rd We did all the 7 on 7 in June, workouts in July,... Read More →

2015 14th District Tournament Preview

By DragonFire - Coming into the season Bowling Green was pegged as the district and region favorite with Warren Central running just behind. South Warren was considered the dark horse with Warren East and Greenwood bringing up the rear. And now three months later…. that's pretty much where we’re at. For the fifth time in the last six years we have a tie at the top, with both Warren Central and Bowling Green finishing at 7-1 in the district. It was suggested at the district meeting that a different method for breaking the tie be used in the future, but this year we had the standard. Each coach flipped... Read More →

24th District Tournament Preview (6th Region)

By GoHardITP - 24th at Mercy * Wednesday – Whitefield Academy (4) vs. Bullitt East (1), 6:00 Tyler Sharpe and the Bullitt East team has already defeated Whitefield once this season in early January by 33 points. There is not any way that Whitefield can close that gap, and BE has been playing much better of late. BE wins by 20 or more in this one. * Wednesday - Jeffersontown (3) vs. Fern Creek (2), 7:30 This is going to be a tough battle that likely goes down to the end. Senior Brandon Johnson for JTown will not go down in his last game of a great career without a fight. If he goes off for one... Read More →

22nd District Tournament Preview (6th Region)

By GoHardITP - 22nd at Western * Monday – Iroquois (5) vs. Butler (4), 6:30 Butler has struggled this season with 5 wins and 18 losses. They have lost 6 in a row to end the season, but their last win was against Iroquois which leaves them hope in this game. In fact, Iroquois has only won 6 games and lost 21 with a 9 game losing streak. Both teams are incredibly young and are a mirror image of each other. I predict the team that has been able to continue believing in their coaching staff during the string of losses will win this one. On that note I am going to predict Iroquois given that Coach...
