  • My Madden Memories

    Many of his biggest fans weren't even alive to see him coach the Oakland Raiders to 1977 Super Bowl. They didn't see any of his winning seasons, which were all of them. They've never seen him with anything but white hair.

    But they've seen that achieving grin on old school Nintendo box art. They've heard his stuttering football commentary, and they've played his video game - for the last 20 years.

  • Marshall takes coach's...

    On the court, Charlotte Marshall always played like a coach – barking at her teammates, pointing them to the right spots on the floor.

    Even as a high school player at Shelby County, it appeared evident that Marshall would wind up pacing the sideline. Former SCHS girls’ coach Sally Zimmerman always said she hoped that Marshall would go into coaching.

    Well, she officially has gotten her wish now.

  • EARLIER: The art of the return:...

    There is no more exciting play in football than a kickoff return for a touchdown.

    One player racing past 11 defenders gets one big block, and he’s gone.

    “No, there’s nothing bigger,” said Edwin Thomas, Shelby County’s kick returner. “If I can run one back, especially on our sideline, it gets everybody up.”

    SCHS Coach Todd Shipley echoed Thomas’ reaction.

  • Too soon for Collins'...

    Rumors circulating about possible new coaches at Martha Layne Collins High School are very premature.

    The school, which will open next year, is nowhere near hiring coaches.

    According to Gary Kidwell, Shelby County Public Schools' director of Student Accounting and Support Services, the new school won't be hiring until next year.

  • EARLIER: Lady Rockets coast past...

    The SCHS volleyball team went through the motions Monday in a 2-0 (25-22, 25-15) victory over Spencer County in the first round of the 8th Region Tournament at Shelby County.

    SCHS Coach Felicia Pace said the Lady Rockets (22-5, 15-2 in the 8th Region) normally play down against Spencer (11-18, 7-9), but it's still a victory.

  • EARLIER: Rockets dominate Fern...

    If football games are won in the trenches, it’s no shock the Rockets dominated Fern Creek, 39-13, Friday.

    The Rockets (6-2, 1-1 in Class 6A, District 4) thoroughly controlled both lines of scrimmage.

    Fern Creek (6-2, 1-1) entered the game averaging 239 yards rushing and 37.9 points. The Rockets’ defense shut out Fern Creek in the second half and allowed just 70 yards on the ground.

  • EARLIER: First day of girls...

    BOWLING GREEN -- The Lady Rockets will have to wait one more day before taking the course at the KHSAA Girls Golf Tournament.

    The KHSAA has postponed the first round of the 36-hole tournament until Saturday morning because of heavy rains that saturated Bowling Green Country Club's course.

    No one played a single hole as rains began early Friday morning.

    Players and coaches seemed to be glad not to have the day dragged out, said Butch Cope, KHSAA's assistant commissioner.

  • Cross country: Karas, Webb lead...

    The SCHS girls’ cross-country team finished 12th out of 22 teams at the Lexington Catholic Invitational large school 5K race Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    Caterina Karas led the team with a 10th-place finish, in a time of 19 minutes, 59 seconds, out of the more than 160 individual runners. Taylor Webb was just behind her in 23rd, with a time of 20:42.

    Sacred Heart’s Emma Brink won the event in 18:49; she was the only runner under 19 minutes.
