Paintsville will bring in a 9-2 record to the matchup, and bring an offense that is scoring over 36 points per game and giving up just over 11 points per game.
Kentucky Country Day brings a 10-1 record to the matchup, and an offense putting up close to 41 points per game and giving up just over 12 points per game.
These two teams comparing by numbers on paper appear to be a mirror image of one another. The Paintsville Tigers also got another weapon back in the Jake Hyden who played quarterback earlier in the year,and was injuries late in the regular season and Paintsville has decided to keep with the hot hand in Kartsen Poe. Kentucky Country Day will once again lean heavy on its two-headed monster of Dickerson and Caldwell and surprise you with a pass every now and to Jalen Todd.
Who wins your 1A State Championship? Does the Mountains of Eastern Kentucky bring another back? Does Kentucky Country Day bring there first ever to Louisville? The good thing one team gets its first state title.
