  • Wildcats, Warriors deal with...

    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.

    To keep the classes as numerically even as possible, the KHSAA has to go through a regular recycling of the classes and districts every four years.

  • Dorshefski begins new era for...

    The Eminence Warriors will have a new football coach this season. Brian Dorshefski will be the third head coach in three years for the Warriors.

    Dorshefski has been an assistant coach at Carroll County for the past five years. In his time with the Panthers he served as running backs coach, head JV coach and last year was the defensive coordinator.

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

  • The old coach couldn't keep...

    Coaches can be an obsessive lot. I know, because I was.

    When I finally moved from an assistant basketball coach to a head coach, in the late ‘90s my outlook changed completely. As an assistant I think I was intense, competitive and responsible for the most part.

    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.

  • Dewitt cycles 100 miles to fight...

    sports@hclocal.com

    Bobby Dewitt, a Henry County native who lives in St. Louis, took on a challenge that many would have deemed impossible when he agreed to do a 100-mile bike ride around Lake Tahoe in early June.

    Dewitt had a good reason to take on the challenge. The ride was organized to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, a group that raises money to find a cure for blood cancers.

    Dewitt’s father, Roy, died of lung cancer so he thought the opportunity to do something to help others fighting cancer was worth the ordeal.

  • Kodiak moment: Local man bags...

    In last week’s edition Steve Chappell watched in horror from a distant vantage point as a large Kodiak bear charged toward his unknowing son and friend. In this week’s second part Chappell has another close encounter that ends in success.

  • Sparky's Boys need help

    Fantasy sports have taken the country by storm since the advent of the internet.

    I have been involved in fantasy baseball since well before all the leagues were put on the web.

    In fact, there was some resistance amongst the old codgers in the Bluegrass Baseball League when it was suggested that we bring our game into the modern era. Some didn’t want to stop meeting every year for the draft. They liked that we got together and actually sized up the competition face-to-face.

  • Storm romp past Trybe

    sports@hclocal.com

    The Kentucky Storm football team suffered a tough 40-6 loss just one week ago in their home opener against the Knoxville Knights. It was not how the team wanted to show off their game to the fans of Henry County.

    This week the Storm came out and played with a vengeance from the opening kickoff to defeat the Indy Trybe 38-0 and show the home fans that they are better than the display from a week ago.
