On July 10th at 6 p.m., Breathitt County High School Football Team’s 2018 campaign officially began.  The Bobcats have spent the past month practicing in the hot summer heat, with their minds set on the regular season.  While most kids are at home playing Fortnite or sleeping in, these Bobcats have been putting in work.  Countless drills, reps, and sprints have all lead up to tomorrow, when the Breathitt Bobcats travel to Montgomery County for the 71st Annual Rec Bowl.

            Ovie Canady is the new commander at the helm of the Perry Central Commodore football program.  Perry had been in the hands of Legendary Coach (and future Hall of Famer) Tom Larkey since 2014, but after 37 years and 303 career victories, Larkey decided to call it a career in February.  Perry Central began their coaching search, but then decided to look internally, instead of bringing in a new administration, and promote Canady to the job after serving as defensive coordinator since 2014.

If you were able to catch any of the games, it is evident why. It’s not always easy to judge how good a team will be by their performance in an exhibition game (the Fox/Monk team beat Asbury by 93 points) but Kentucky played veteran teams in the Bahamas and won them all by an average of 29 points. I could write 10 pages on how well the team played, but instead let’s list some of the most impressive points from the games. Continue reading UK Basketball – Big Blue Bahamas Observations

This Kentucky basketball team came into Atlantis with high expectations, and the fans left with even higher expectations. Kentucky went 4-0 against solid competition with an average margin of victory of 29 points! The team chemistry was great for this time of the year. There were lots of high fives and flying chest bumps. The veterans (sophomores) seemed to help the youth excel in the new environment. It was evident during the first open practice that Quade Green, Nick Richards and especially PJ Washington were helping coach the freshmen, and they overachieved during the four game stretch.  Continue reading UK Basketball – Blue Skies for BBN in the Bahamas
