  • Wildcats, Warriors deal with realignment


    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association has finished the thankless task of realigning football districts again.

    The main factor for this realignment is that schools change classification as their enrollments shrink or grow. With six classes, there are always going to be teams moving from one class to another.

    Dorshefski, 35, is from Mountaintop, Pa., where he attended Crestwood High School. He played football through middle and high school.

    I had no idea, even after years as an assistant, that putting the word head in front of coach would make so much difference in how I approached coaching.

    That first year as a head coach I did everything obsessively – scouting, practice plans, game plans.
