    Through the dedication of KHSAA, coaches, school officials, referees, parents, and players navigated one of most difficult seasons history and got it done. It wasn’t easy but through perseverance and luck got it done so give yourself a hand. Looking forward to a normal 2021 season!

    Awesome! Congrats Highlands, congrats Coach Sphire. I don't see this as a home run hire by Highlands, I see this as a grand slam hire by Highlands.

    This move by Coach James reflects negatively on him, not on Highlands. Regardless of the reason he went back to Franklin County, there is nothing Coach James can say that takes the negativity in this move off of him. Unfortunate, but true.

    Coaches accept jobs, do the intro presser, reach out and talk to kids and then back out in less than 48 hours? That happens all the time? I guess we just never talk about it around here...

    Guys, Coach James is a good guy, like any of us he is not perfect. I would say if you asked him he wishes he would have handled it different. Most likely he did apologize. Big thing I see, is you folks that post on here on behalf of Highlands need to humble yourself, your not helping your program, with your online antics. Your program is in disarray according to most of you, and when you didn't get your way today, you guys threw a tantrum. I imagine you guys would not want your kids or a coach to act this way on the field ? But somehow it's commonplace with how you guys talk about coaches and admin at your school behind the computer. Good luck to you guys! We are tickled to death, to have our coach back. If you wanna play give us a ring. You guys are gonna find your guy, you got everything you need to do it right....

    Good to see the HHS faithful with such reasonable expectations for the new coach’s first season.

    Thank you both. This recognition, in my case, is a reflection of the amount and quality of work our coaches and players across the state put forth so that we could have this season. I have never been more proud to be a KY HS Football Coach and I love KY HS football. Cam sounds like his uncle Greg. Back in 93 & 94, most teams when we(Paris HS) scouted them, by formation, we knew what they would do. Not Mike Yeagle's Beechwood teams with Greg Hergott at QB. They could hit every area of the field in most every set. Very different for the early 90's. Cam is the same type of player. Congrats to Cam ... and Congrats to all of our kids & coaches across the state of KY that got a fall football season in 2020. It wasn't easy... but WE did it!!!!

    Last night was very uneasy. Today, things seem much better. Thank you to everyone who has supported our kids playing. And, I genuinely believe having our kids in athletics will hold down Covid numbers. Turning them loose right now would be a disaster. Also, one reason I have supported BGPreps and theGuru over the years is how he keeps the conversation civil. Without civility, there is no dialogue. Especially in 2020, we need all the civility and dialogue we can get.

    Just want to stress this note about Coach Scroggins. Until 2007, Zero... None. Zilch... ZERO African American Coaches had won a KY State Football Championship. Scroggins was the first to do so. He then did it four more times to make sure that the bar was properly set! This man was a legend.

    I believe the "transfer portal" culture is creating situations like this. At some point it might be time to look in the mirror. I know when he left HHS the football program got crushed by people saying they were running him off by not having him play varsity football. Now he transfers again because he isn't getting what he wants at CCH. At what point does it stop being someone else's fault?
  15. 11 points
    The seniors were 40-3 during their three years on the varsity roster. For the full four year run, there has never been a better span in CCH football history. 55-3 and the following accomplishments: 1. Undefeated at home in regular season 2. Undefeated against the birdies in varsity competition (second class in a row that can boast that) 3. Undefeated against all NKY competition 4. Two undefeated seasons 5. Three undefeated regular seasons 6. Four regional championships 7. Three state finals 8. Two state championships I fully understand that this class stood on the shoulders of giants. However, these numbers speak for themselves. So, forgive me for not giving a rip right now about what this team lacked - heard plenty about that, throughout the year, from our experts. I also don’t give a darn right now about who’s coming back. Time for that later. Someone from our own side commented that BG “wanted it more”. Really? How do you know? BG played better. Period. They were the better team, last night. Let’s not kick our kids in the shins by speculating that they “didn’t want it bad enough”. Congratulations to the 2020 Colonels and best wishes to the seniors - you created a lifetime of memories for yourselves and your families.

    I logged onto BGP, and I seldom get a few minutes lately, but excitedly headed into the Football Forum to catch up on some opinions of this weekend's great games. I see CovCath and the Purples have 12 pages of predictions -- I was giddy. I've spent a lot of time in BG, have a great friend (who first name rhymes with BG) who coached basketball there and is now a suit, so I always follow the Purples from afar with great interest. Wow...then I read every...single...post. Whew. A lot in this thread to unpack. So I'll act like I just got to a vacation, leave the case packed, and just head out to see the sights. BG is a great program, with a great team this year, and they are certainly the favorites on paper. Hope it is a terrific game, everyone stays healthy, and I hope the post-game thread is a little better than this one turned out to be. 😎

    I usually read these race discussion topics to hear different thoughts on the topic, but usually do not feel moved to comment. However, I have been reading through this topic the last day or so and felt the need to share. I am so tired of hearing how football makes boys into better men. The lessons they learned from football they carried with them all their lives and were better for it. Blah...Blah.... It can also coddle kids in the classroom and outside of it, because they are really good at football. So in some cases we help set the bad example that these kids can get away with things, because they are good at football. So here is an opportunity for the team, the coach, the administration, and the community to step up and teach -- an opportunity to make boys into better men. Here we sit bickering about if it happened or not. Here we sit bickering about 'ratting' teammates out. Here we sit bickering about 'fairly' punishing those that are guilty. It literally, could not be more black and white to me. My team does not condone this behavior. We sit down in this room. We look each other in the eye and we deal with this as team right now. OR we walk away and leave your uniform. This conversation is so much more important than some random high school football game. If you said it, then own it and all that comes with it If you know who said it and you are not willing to step up, then you are part of the problem. I am not saying I know the correct level of punishment, but the team needs to understand this is not acceptable and as leaders we would rather not play, than fail to address this issue. Again, an opportunity to make better men out of young boys -- if we want things to change, then it starts with these young people. Do not let them slide and make the same mistakes other generations have made! It might be a tough lesson, but the world is tough, and this lesson is worth it. I will step down off the pulpit now and leave you with my favorite quote, because I think it applies here and many other situations. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”― Edmund Burke (in a letter addressed to Thomas Mercer).

    Our son just found out today that he has received a giant feather in his academic cap. He has been awarded a Fulbright Distinguished Chair Post at the University of Warsaw (not Kentucky). The official verbiage is "Distinguished Scholar in Humanities and Social Sciences at the American Studies Center, University of Warsaw". Will be teaching and lecturing there for the Spring 2022 semester. Heck, the coolest academic thing I ever did was test out of Comp 1 and 2 my freshman year at Morehead.

    Breathitt County 51-0 over Corbin 2002 Danville 42-7 over Beechwood in 2003 **Should probably go in the "Coaches Quote" thread, but following the Danville win....Coach Harp took my dad (Marty Jaggers, then Offensive Coordinator) into the press conference after the game...reporter made the comment/asked dad... Reporter- "Coach Jaggers. You all only attempted one pass in the game, comment on winning as big as you all did despite not being very BALANCED." Dad- "I think we were really balanced....this RB had 26 carries for over 200+. The other RB had 27 carries for over 200+." 🤣

    Coach stipends have implications on more than just other coach's salaries. There are Title IX issues involved, general budgeting and others. Some of you are correct in stating this isn't college. And the booster money some are suggesting might be even more closely monitored than the general fund money for just these kind of reasons. There's this thing in public schools called "Red Book" that governs all expenditures and it doesn't compromise.

    Ok, I've cooled down a bit. He really just wasted a bit of time, that's really it. He just wanted to go home to his community and continue what he had built. You can't really hate on him for that. Coach James didn't deserve my reactionary harsh comments. I apologize and good luck to him continuing at Franklin County. He seems like a great coach.

    In my opinion, I think an individual should only repeat a year of school if there are major glaring academic issues. It just doesn’t sit well with me for someone to repeat a year of school, even though they are an A, B student. To me that takes away from the sole purpose of the 5th year, by making the return more about sports than academics.

    To be fair, The Cru went belly to belly and didn't back down. If the Colonels didn't play well enough throughout the game, one call on a last second shot, well ... We got beat. We got beat twice by a band of brothers. Respect. Row Cru!

    He was teaching at CovCath while I was there from 89-93. One of the kindest, most unassuming men I've ever come across. He truly had the respect of every single person that walked those halls...which, as we all know, isn't easy when you're talking about teenage boys. I didn't have him for any classes and didn't play basketball..but he couldn't have been any more kind and gracious towards me in every single encounter I had with him. We were blessed to have him while we did.

    Clay is a wonderful coach and very good friend. I hate this. Having said that, the next coach should be able to ask for anything and get it. The Danville administration is in a bad spot. They have to do everything in their power to make the next coach successful, or a bad situation will get even tougher and uglier. 100% opinion.... if the next coach is NOT successful... merger talk will increase substantially. Most school admin will not admit this truth.... success on the football field can be a very important driver for the entire school system. That success also is a huge part of building a positive school culture in the classroom and elsewhere. Many of your top academic schools are top football schools. That is not a coincidence. I'll never be a superintendent... .but if I was, football would be a huge priority because that would benefit my entire school system.

    Most people think the progression is OC or DC to head coach. The best progression is from freshman/JV coach to head coach. You already know how to run your own program. It depends on the setup, but at Paris, Mason County, & Mercer County, our freshman coach ran the program. Same offensive & defensive system, but handled logistics, personnel, practice schedules, accountability, communicating with parents, etc. In the 21st century, the freshman coach is bigger than the OC or DC. If you don't have a good one, the OC and DC won't have players to coach. Your frosh coach these days needs to be a rock star.... like Larry Harris (Mason County) or William Harris (Mercer County)!

    Yep take note. He had multiple chances to walk it back- after applying, after interview, after offer and after acceptance before the presser. He did not choose for it to be an issue before heat from where he was currently located. Better now than later, but still handled very poorly.

    How bout them REBELS !!!! Man, what a game. Will McDaniel is one tough nut !! Congratulations to Eddie James and Franklin County. I think Franklin County has turned the page on what it takes to build a championship caliber program and I expect to see them making runs the next few years. I think their talent pool is very good and is going to be a force to be reckoned with for at least the next few years. If the administration supports the program like they should they are going to continue to build and compete every year. Broyles had a dream season and I think his younger brother is a frosh and also a QB. Moorman is a soph and is a beast. #3 Ledford is a soph and led them in tackles tonight. #44 was their second leading tackler tonight and is a Jr. They lose Farrier and Broyles which is huge but they return a lot. Now for my Rebels. Jagger Gillis has nerves of steel. Clark had a whale of a game. McDaniel obviously played unbelievable. Boyle the last four years has played in 3 finals, winning 2. 1 runner up and another 13-1 season losing in the semi's. Out of those 4 teams I think this one might have had the best Oline from top to bottom. The other 3 had at least 1 D1 guy but from tackle to tackle I'm not sure this one wasn't the best and most consistent. The holding calls were killer. The 4th down stands by FC were huge. Boyle should have came away with some points at the end of the first half. Franklin County just made big time play after big time play. Boyle out gained FC by 144 yards but had little to show for it. I wish we had tried to take it down the field and score a TD after the interception instead of playing for the field goal. The tackle for loss on 3rd down was huge. Clark's catch and run and cutback was so huge. The interception by Avery Bodner, who is a freshman, was unbelievable. A couple of comments about the officiating. Don't know if the holding calls on Boyle were legit. May very well have been. But Zeismer was obviously held on FC first play from the 1 yard line in the end zone so that's a missed safety. The block in the back when Gills was scrambling around seemed pretty lame. But the incomplete pass called a completion in overtime was inexcusable !!! A couple of people from that end of the stadium thought Boyle got in on the first 4th and goal from the 1 but I had no vantage point from which to see it. Congrats again to the Rebels on number 9 and congrats to FC on a heck of a season. FC better make sure and hold on to Eddie James. Jeff Hester, Boyle's DC for the last almost 20 years is my friend and I'm really going to miss him. The young men he has mentored will miss him also. To many young men Jeff has been more than just a coach. To many young men Jeff has been the only guidance and example of leadership and what it is to be a man of character and integrity that young men need in their lives, especially in today's world. Boyle has had and does have a lot of great coaches. But these shoes I'm not sure are fill-able. I'm sure glad he went out with a win and I'm glad it was a defensive stand to win it. Number 9 sure feels pretty good right now. WHO YA WITH..........

    Instant. Classic. Lots can be said about this one, here are my Top 3 things: 1. Bravo boys! What a game. What a display of coaching. What heart. A truly great football game that was played very well. 2. Cameron Hergott is Mr. Football. Anyone else and this award needs to be done away with. Tonight was the equivalent of his "Heisman Moment". Come from behind win with a gutsy two point conversion to cap it. 3. Beechwood will have all the pomp and pageantry of the 2A Finals so let me just take this time to give an electronic standing ovation to West Carter. So impressive. Legit. Tough. Clutch. Just someone had to win and Beechwood was one point better. Here's your standing O Comets courtesy of one my all-time favorite movies as a kid!

    The other side of that is most people on here and media project BG to win and rightfully so. However, as a Cov Cath alum and fan, I'm in on a "nobody believes in us attitude" for a team that has lost 2 games in the last 4 years.

    Again? I don't want to sidetrack the thread from game focus but I will comment since this is a topic in here and you have complained about this in other threads as well. Few things are more annoying than someone who chooses to send their child to a private school whining about the cost of of that choice. Extremely annoying. Every school has lost gate money this year, be it private or public. Public schools rely on that gate money to support their programs too.

    Someone asked a question, I answered. Sorry to offend. I take zero joy in it. Next time, I’ll be mindful of what time I post. Thanks for the moral reprimand. Shame on me. Oh, one last point... If relaying this info is so hurtful, then why have a thread with this topic? Stop the double standard. Seriously, people have been pining for months about this dude’s job, and I’m the bad guy for answering a question. Have the kids not been looking at BGP until, miraculously, today? Come on. I get it. Makes perfect sense. And for the record, I hope my source was wrong. I hope BW is at H forever!

    Anyone who has spent a few minutes on BGP knows that I am a huge supporter of mask wearing, social distancing and ultimate respect for COVID. However, I strongly disagree with these football teams and other sports where athletes and coaches have done a great job avoiding infection being punished just because others in their community have not done a good job. My opinion is teams should get to play on unless they have an infection within their team. Even if a team has an infection, if the rest of the team gets tested and tests negative, that team should get to play on without the infected players. I don't like group punishment and that is what this is.

    This so bogus it makes me want to puke. There are untold number of laws that restrict freedom that people follow every day. Wear your seat belt; no drunk driving; concealed carry; speed limits; stop signs; no smoking. I could go on and on. Indiana just passef a law that people cannot hold a cell phone while behind the wheel, even at a red light. You enforced many of those laws. To act like wearing a mask in this situation is some great, unbearable infringement on freedom is totally bogus.
