Pulaski County has had so many it is hard to remember them all. Here are a few from the past:
2013 - Against Damian Harris and Madison Southern in the Region Championship Game, Pulaski trailed by 10 in the 3rd quarter, and rallied to win 32-28 in the muddiest game I have ever seen.
- Also last year - Pulaski trailed Anderson County in the Semi-State Final Round of the Playoffs, 20-10 with 4 minutes to go. On the road. QB Riley Hall hit Christian Coots for a long TD pass to make it 20-17. Anderson County fumbled on their possession, and PC drove 60 yards to win in the final minute on a TD pass from Hall to Jake Johnson. The highlight of the drive was a scramble and run by QB Riley Hall on 4th and 13!
2012 - Also against Madison Southern on the road, Pulaski trailed by 2 TDs with 4 minutes to go. QB Riley Hall threw a TD to Tyler Goins. Then they held Harris and Southern 3 and out. Goins scored on a 38 yard run with less than a minute to win 37-36.
- Also earlier that season, PC trailed 21-0 at North Laurel in the 3rd Quarter, and rallied to win 28-21.
2010 - PC trailed arch-rival Southwestern 14-0 in the third. Rallied to win 21-14.
2009 - Pulaski was behind Whitley County in the second round of the playoffs, by 2 TDs. They scored with 5 minutes to go, on-sides kicked and got it, and tied the game up with about a minute and a half. Then intercepted a Whitley pass on the 10. Went 90 yards in less than a minute and won 40-34.
- Same year. Trailed at Rockcastle 41-27 in the 4th quarter. Scored 3 TDs in 5 minutes to win. The last one with 20 seconds or so to go. Final 47-41.
2008 - Trailed Ricky Bowling and South Laurel by 2 TDs with 4 minutes to go. Drove and scored, on-sides kicked and got it, and scored again with less than a minute to tie. Won in overtime.
- Same year. Trailed Knox Central 21-0 early. Rallied to tie in the 3rd. Knox went ahead 28-21. Pulaski drove 80 yards in a minute and a half to score, went for two and won. 29-28.
2007 - Pulaski was a 21 point underdog to Somerset. Game was tied at 43 with 4 minutes to go. Had a lightning delay. PC scored 3 TDs in the last 4 minutes to win going away.
All the way back to 2003, my favorite - PC trailed Louisville Waggener 61-41 with 6 minutes to go in the 3rd quarter of a second round playoff game at Waggener in the rain. Pulaski scored 41 points in a quarter and a half (yes you read that right) to win 82-68. I think it is still the highest scoring game in KY high school history.
Come to Pulaski and see the Maroons play. You won't be disappointed.
