  • Cats without a head football...

    In a twist of events that has left Henry County High School searching for a new football coach, Ray Graham unexpectedly decided to leave the squad just 17 days before practice starts.

The first few days back after an enjoyable vacation could be the toughest, especially with all that has happened that has made me feel a bit out of the loop.

    With Ray Graham making the decision to leave Henry County for Lexington Christian Academy, there’s no denying the fact that the football program is in a tough spot.

    For one team, it was a shocker. For the other, it was dominance.

    After the season-ending tournaments two weeks ago, the Mets won the Henry County Youth Baseball League Major League division and the Red Sox won the HCYBL Minor League division. The Mets 5-3 win over the favorites Yankees in the championship game was a shock to most, while the Red Sox 14-2 win over the Reds in the finals for the younger players showcased the dominance they showed all season.
