  • Records can be deceiving

    I’m sure that there may be some disagreement with me on this, but I think Henry County might have played their toughest schedule ever this season. Statistically, their opponents were pretty impressive.
    The Wildcats opponents’ overall record was 59-41. When you take out Elizabethtown’s 1-9 record it is 58-33. Aside from E-town, the only team with a losing record was Class 5A Woodford County who played a pretty tough schedule themselves and finished 4-6.

  • Helping dreams take flight


    While many students were using fall break to catch up on their sleep or playing video games incessantly, the Eminence Warriors football team was helping a group of people to better the quality of their life. At the same time, the Warriors were learning some great life lessons.

  • Wildcats fall to Bears, 21-0, in...


    Wet, windy and chilly conditions on Friday made for a miserable night in more ways than one for the Henry County Wildcats.
    The Cats fell 21-0 to visiting Spencer County in the regular season finale, a game in which the dismal conditions resulted in turnovers for both teams.
    But Spencer County found enough offense to take advantage of the Wildcats’ miscues, scoring 3 touchdowns on the night. Henry County mustered just 108 yards of total offense for the evening.

  • Wildcats claw past Panthers

    With few exceptions, the Henry County Wildcats defense put on a clinic last week at Elizabethtown.

    The Cats traveled to Elizabethtown on Friday and came away with a 21-7 district win against the Panthers.

    The early going was tough for the Cats as E-town struck first at 10:12 into the game on a 52-yard touchdown run by Panther quarterback Josh Williams. Henry County head coach Jason Spencer said the touchdown was the result of two missed assignments. The extra-point attempt was good and the Panthers took an early 7-0 lead.

    When you meet Matt Sallee you quickly realize that you are talking to a young man who, as normal as he wants to be, is extraordinary.

    Sallee is an 8th grade football player and track athlete at Henry County Middle School. And he has a prosthetic leg.

    It’s been awhile since I wrote a column. Two months to be exact.

    It’s not because I have run out of opinions. That’ll never happen.

    It’s not because I’ve run out of embarrassing stories to tell on myself. Unfortunately that’ll never happen either.

  • Turnovers doom Warriors in 70-14...

    For 1.5 quarters the Eminence Warriors hung tough against the highly regarded Frankfort Panthers on Friday.

    But a late second quarter scoring spree by Frankfort doomed to the Warriors to their worst defeat of the season. The final score was 70-14.

    But with 2:43 left in the 2nd quarter Eminence trailed by 8 points at 22-14.

    A series of turnovers allowed the Panthers to score 27 points in just 2:42 and at halftime, what had been a competitive game became a rout as Frankfort went into the locker room leading 49-14.
