The Breathitt County Bobcats come into this week’s matchup with the Leslie County Eagles having flipped the script on their 2018 season.  Coming off their first win, the Bobcats seem to now have momentum on their side.  With each passing week, the Bobcats have steadily improved on both sides of the ball.  Breathitt’s ability to both throw the ball, as well as run the rock, has developed the Bobcats into one the region’s most explosive offenses.

0-3 ….. That is what the Bobcats  were coming into last night’s game. Most teams would be ready to throw the towel in and give up. Not these Bobcats.

When you think of Eastern Kentucky high school football two schools are usually in everyone’s conversation.  The Breathitt County Bobcats and the Prestonsburg Blackcats are both prestigious football programs located just 45 minutes apart.  In the early 2000’s you could not go to a KHSAA State Championship game unless you went through both schools.  The teams have met several times in the playoffs, resulting in one of the fiercest rivalries in Eastern Kentucky.  Since KHSAA re-classification a decade ago, the programs have been in separate classes, putting a strain on the rivalry, and will be fully reborn next season when Breathitt moves down to 2A and the schools will be District Rivals once more!

The biggest question mark during the offseason was at quarterback for the Wildcats.  That question was finally answered this week as Coach Stoops announced that Junior College transfer Terry Wilson was taking the reins.
