  1. I'm slow to respond to all of this, because despite the fact that I've been working elbows-deep on the front lines of the covid pandemic, most Kentuckians don't care about the truth. It is the unvaccinated that are filling up hospitals right now. There's no way around that argument. I work in a large hospital system with 2 major medical centers, a 3rd community hospital, a 4th still-smaller hospital, and closing in on 5 critical access satellite hospitals. Granted, we exist primarily in Indiana and Illinois, but two of our hospitals are in Kentucky, and they ALL funnel critical care admi

  2. Does anyone else sorta feel like the win for Highlands over BG isn't nearly as impressive and a little inflated with the result BG just had with McCracken County. I just have this feel that BG isn't elite. They very well make reach that spot later in the year, but have been very underwhelming. McCracken County was just beat the week prior by PT and gave up 35 points, while BG only could muster 14 against that same McCracken defense. Did I also mention that the same PT team was just beat by Graves who lost by two touchdowns to Mayfield. I'm just not sold on BG being a huge win as of yet.

  4. The bottom line is if you are the DC and the head coach has a problem with something you are doing on that side of the ball and he tells you to do it a different way you do it a different way. Same at your day job. If my principal tells me to change the way I am teaching in my classroom and I refuse to do it differently I should expect to be let go or face disciplinary actions. If you want to do things your way then get a head coaching job and you can run the show. The head coach sits in that seat so it is his call because he is the one that has to do the coaches show and explain why thing

  5. A few thoughts after finally getting a chance to watch this one: BELFRY - Belfry is probably going to finish 4-6 and have a very competitive game with Lawrence County and Pike Central in two of those wins. That schedule is stupid. With that said, they still have a chance of reaching the Semi's again. Somehow. - Lots of Belfry fans gnashing their teeth about Dixon as QB where you limit his number of carries. I dont agree. With that said, Belfry has to find more wrinkles if they want to do anything special. Just not a lot of firepower besides Dixon right now. I want to see a littl

  6. Bardstown has a very nice team. I appreciate the class and effort they played with. I also feel the same way about our kids. It was a hard fought physical battle. Both squads left all they had on the field. I am particularly proud of my freshman starters and the other freshman that stepped into that type of atmosphere and gave us all they could. I really think the playoff type atmosphere will help both teams down the line. Go Dawgs!!

  7. Maybe I'm wrong here, but it seems people are throwing Franklin under the bus, when they have played two really good teams, it isn't like they have played bad teams and taken losses. Ballard is number 4 in 6a and Corbin is as good as anyone in 5A and down. I think FC will be fine, and will get better as the year goes by.

  8. Word spread quickly throughout Facebook yesterday that we have lost yet another standout Highlands football alum in Rob Reynolds (class of 1993). If you followed NKY Football in the early 1990’s Rob Reynolds and John Schlarman were the Dynamic duo lineman on the 1992 State Championship team. Before you had Smith & Lorenzen, there was Schlarman & Reynolds! Rob along with John both went down to the University of Kentucky to play football. His adult life was filled with stories of him giving back to so many. He was involved a few years ago with the Jr Football league in F

  9. Here is the type of things happening under the new LEADERSHIP at Highlands. Not going to mention who wrote it but it speaks volumes… “Let me tell you about Coach Bob Sphire. Last night I emceed the Highlands Middle School Kick-Off Party before the first Highlands home football game for my 8th year. Every year we are blessed with incredible performances from the HMS cheer squad, HMS dance team, JV dance team, and the HHS marching band. Never before has a representative from the varsity football team spoke at the party…until last night. Coach Sphire wanted to talk, and opened

  11. @coachhawk has done a super job at Bryan Station. This will be a big challenge for our team & we are looking forward to it. Makes it even tougher, my old QB, Harry Lewis is on the Defender staff. Wonderful young man! On matching wits... job number one for me is not over coach and screw up the good players that we do have!

  12. Our biggest challenge currently is getting every starter on the field at the same time. I like our team but we were missing some kids last Friday night and will be missing more this coming Friday for a variety of reasons. The positive from that is that backups and sometimes freshman (we started a couple last Friday and played some more as back ups) get live varsity reps. Hopefully we can hold off Covid and other injuries this season. I think many schools are in the same situation currently. Thanks for the positive outlook. We just try to keep our head down and get better daily.

  16. I totally understand having differences with coaches and “it being time to move on”. That stuff happens and is honestly probably good for both sides. However, I don’t care how anyone spins it, quitting mid season and quitting on the team is not a good look… for either side. Things are not about “you” as a coach, they’re about kids. You finish it out. Period. Coach Behymer and Coach Weinrich knew exactly what they were getting into by coaching with each other again; heck they coached in the same program for almost 20 years. Zero sympathy.

  18. I believe that is the best compliment and highest praise a public high school could ever hope for. Students from across the region choosing to travel daily to a public high school and pay over $3,500 a year to do it - is there any higher praise than that? I am sure Beechwood supporters thank you for pointing that out. In addition, there are many, many more students beyond just football players who do that at Beechwood.

  20. This program has been working hard to instill a work ethic and to change the culture of what's expected from it's players and to hold each other accountable. Not accountable to coaches, parents or fans but to each other. To rely on each other and to play for each other more than themselves. They are better than they were last year. You have to win the games you are supposed to and at some point you have to win some games you shouldn't. You have to overachieve. I think Graves is probably a better team. They should be favored. But I think Bullitt East has a chance to win one of those gam

  21. I think on one side, he is correct that today's athlete's are much more entitlement minded (examples: NIL, skipping out on your team mates by choosing not to play in a bowl, etc.) but on the other, I don't know if players 50 years ago were as duty minded quite to the degree as he portrays. I think 50 years ago players had a bit more of a "its more about the team than it is about me" mindset than today. Whereas today I think players do not have the same degree of dedication to their team and team mates as they used to. So to recap, I would say he is correct to a degree.

  27. This should be a great game. We know that @ChiefSmokewill have his kids ready to play. We are excited about playing against a well coached team. These early games will make us a better team in the long run. I just hope we can line up right and compete.

  29. We disagree, no one is stopping COVID, we have to live with it. And at this point it appears vaccinated people are the ones spreading it and not unvaccinated people with natural immunity. Masks don't work, even N95s from a recent study, so there is nothing any adult is going to do to stop anything. On your scenario, I don't think it is realistic but to answer you forfeit.

  33. Well isn’t this what people of the community that know what Highlands football is all about have been saying for last few years. Complacency can kill a program and it almost did. There is and has been talent to be better than .500 each and every year. Realists know you cannot win state titles each and every year, but if kids give effort and have faith in what they are being taught more good than bad happens. You are seeing the groundwork being laid for that now. Unfortunately I was unable to attend last night, but heard that there was a middle school pep rally before game. Coach Sphir

  35. I'd say you're not alone after the way this one played out. I really thought Male would win handily with so many of X's top defenders out. Not only could they not pull away, they were shutout in the second half. This score leaves me way more impressed with the Tigers.

  37. I believe, for non-district games like this one, the ball is basically in Boyle County's court since Danville is the team that is unable to play this week, as originally contracted. Boyle County can choose to reschedule the game, in which case there will have to be some schedule shuffling by one or both teams, because Boyle's bye week is Oct 1 and Danville's bye week is Sep 24, so a straight "postponement" isn't possible without someone moving things around with some opponents. Boyle also has the option to schedule a replacement game this Friday with an open team, in which case they're b

  38. So many things you can say about this game. Sloppy, poor execution, poor play calling, tried to make substitution needed but only stayed with it for 2 plays, coaching staff get costly penalty vs. Resilient, didn't quit, actually made plays in the 4th quarter this week, critical win for confidence purposes, still can put the right guy in, trending upward although not skyrocketing. Onward, Go Purples! And congratulations to McCracken County, they came into this game having given up 35 points to their 3A rival on their home field and played with great effort and determi

  43. I am going to call these most surprising versus most impressive. One week in, it is hard to know for sure how "impressive" a win is. These are the games that I consider surprising: 1. Woodford County 56 Glasgow 0 ... an unranked team beats the #5 team in 3A and beats them by this score. 2. Pulaski County 55 Belfry 13 ... Close call between this one and number 3, but when you consider Belfry was ranked #1 in 3A, the history of Belfry along with Pulaski County being lower ranked than Franklin County - all that makes this score more surprising to me. 3. Franklin County 43 Scott Co
