Hazard, KY. 8-17-18 – With what has become an annual tradition, the Belfry Pirates and the Hazard Bulldogs squared off Friday night in each teams last pre-season scrimmage at Hazard’s Daniel Field.

After a refocus in practice the Pirates were looking to shore up assignments and responsibilities before the season starts next week against perennial Power Huntington High and the # 2 offensive tackle in the nation and # 9 over all 5 Star player (according to 247 sports) in Darnell Wright.

The Breathitt County Bobcats made the trip to Mount Sterling in hopes of avenging last year’s loss to the Montgomery County Indians.  Along the way, as the rain came down, the Bobcats would face their first adversity of the season, and evening, as the new equipment trailer would run over a screw resulting in a flat tire on the Mountain Parkway, resulting in the kickoff being pushed back to 7:45pm.

     New Perry Central Coach Ovie Canady and his Perry County Central Commodores kicked off the 2018 season by hosting the McCreary Central Raiders in the Inaugural John C. Combs Bowl.  It didn’t take PCC long to show their identity of tough hard-nosed football, just like olf “Punkin”.  PCC won the toss, chose to receive, and then drove the ball 59 yards on 10 plays and scoring on a Jayden Neace 4 yard run.  The extra point was no good, making the score 6-0 with 8:15 left in the first quarter.

            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.

UK Basketball – Big Blue Bahamas Observations

After watching the Wildcats play four games in just five days the Kentucky fan base are the most excited they have been since the ’14-’15 season. 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
