  • Morehead hit the ground running

    In the Shelby County Rockets’ triple-option offense every runner is a threat to break away, aiding in the misdirection caused from fake handoffs.

    But none have been more valuable than the fullback, or ‘b-back’ whose job it is to pick up the tough yards between the tackles.

    With the graduation of Malik Manica, junior Caleb Morehead has seized that role this season, all while leading the team in rushing, despite having missed one game due to injury.

  • Collins faces familiar foe in...

    To borrow a phrase from the famous Yogi Berra, “It’s déjà vu all over again” for the Collins Titans as the 2016 KHSAA Class 4A playoffs get underway this week.

    Collins will travel to Western High School to face the Warriors Friday.

    “They are really big and loaded with athletes all over the field,” Collins quarterback J.R. Lucas said. “They always are. It’ll be a good game, like the times we’ve played them before.”

  • North Oldham eliminates Collins...

    The Collins High School volleyball team had its season ended by a visiting North Oldham squad on Wednesday night.

    “I think we came out hesitant right off the bat,” Collins coach Cary Clark said. “We got down early in all three sets to be quite honest. Once we got into the game and started competing, I thought we played really tough with them. But you give a good team like that a lead like we did, it made it really difficult to come back.”

  • Rockets face undefeated South...

    Tonight, the Shelby County High School football team will look to extend its winning streak to nine straight games when the Rockets (8-1) welcome South Oldham to Robert Doyle Stadium.

    The Rockets are 4-0 this season when playing at home, and are outscoring opponents by a combined 185-61 in those four contests.

    That home record will be tested when an undefeated Dragons team (9-0) comes to town.

  • Collins looks to bounce back...

    The Collins High School football team will look to rebound tonight when it welcomes a visiting Anderson County team to Shelbyville.

    “We obviously didn’t play very well last week,” Collins coach Jerry Lucas said. “We have things we think we can correct this week. Once we get into the postseason, it’s just survive and advance.”

    As expected, the Titans (5-4) sport an aerial attack that is hard for teams to compete against.

  • Titan volleyball players hit...

    Despite having its season ended on Wednesday night, two Collins High School volleyball players will have their names remembered forever.

    In the team’s Oct. 13 win over Ballard High School, Senior Krysta Ethington logged 1,000 digs and sophomore Caitlyn Gehrman passed the 1,000 assists mark for their high school careers.

    Gehrman reached her mark faster than anyone in school history, in just her second year on the team.

    Neither of the Titans players had any idea the milestones were upcoming.

  • Creque sets UofL points record

    It has been a season of record-shattering performances for the University of Louisville football team, and former Collins kicker Blanton Creque has earned his place in the record books.

    The Shelbyville-native handled the kicking duties for the Cardinals in the 54-13 win over North Carolina State University on Saturday, and set a UofL record for most points scored by a kicker, with 18.

    The former Collins athlete says he did not know he had set a record until after the game.

  • Bearcats upend Rockets in region...

    In the opening round of the 8th Region Volleyball Tournament on Monday night, Shelby County had its season ended by Walton-Verona in a back-and-forth affair.

    “That was the most fun, greatest game I’ve seen them play all year,” SCHS coach Kristen Kapp said. “I mean, they fought the entire time. They wanted it, and I told them in the locker room that it’s not the fairy tale ending unfortunately, but they shouldn’t be upset with themselves.”

  • Rockets clinch district title...

    The Shelby County High School football team wrapped up its second straight district title with its second straight win over rival Collins High School Friday.

  • Rockets, Titans impress on the...

    Although Collins High School may not have been happy with the result, the Shelby County-Collins game last Friday was full of impressive performances.

    Several Rockets and Titans made individual statements in the game with their play, and left lasting impressions on fans and coaches.

    Despite struggling to the throw the ball, Collins’ running back NaSean Roseberry put on a show and made the most of every carry, ending up with 147 yards and a score on just 14 attempts.
