  • EARLIER: Titans face Western without Axline

    As if facing off against a Top 10 team wasn't hard enough, the Collins football team will do so without one of its biggest playmakers Friday night.

    Senior wide receiver/free safety Ben Axline has a torn anterior cruciate ligament and will miss the Titans' Class AAAA quarterfinal, Region 2 title game against visiting Western. Axline suffered the injury in Collins' second-round playoff win over Fairdale last week.

    "It's one of those unfortunate things that happen in sports," Titans Coach Jerry Lucas said.

    The towers are being applied for by New Cingular Wireless, which lists the same Louisville address as AT&T.

  • EARLIER: O-line big reason for Collins' season

    One of Jerry Lucas' biggest concerns entering his first season as the head coach of the Collins football team was up front.

    That's because he had absolutely zero starting, and barely any varsity, experience on the offensive line.

    Fast forward a few months and Lucas has no distress. In fact, he couldn't be happier.

    "They have just been phenomenal all season," he said recently.
