    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.

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.
