    Henry County High School Athletic Director Jon Kasten has instituted a new community outreach program for all Wildcat sports teams this year.

    “The idea is to give back to the community because they give us so much,” Kasten said. “Just go up to the football field and see all the help the community has given us. It’s the same with basketball and other sports. So we want to give back.”

    Many of the teams are still in the planning stages for their programs but some of the teams have already helped out.

    None of them ever mentioned the interference call that wasn’t called that prevented another Louisville touchdown that would have helped them beat Clemson.
