    The Knights used a powerful running attack to grind out 424 rushing yards on 58 carries. Senior running back Joseph Hazelwood scored four touchdowns, including runs of 31 and 41 yards. Clayton Smith and Austin Turner added the two other scores.

  • Marion Co. at SCHS, 7:30 p.m...

    It has been a tough road for Shelby County High School’s football team in its first season under the local two-school system, and tonight’s game with Marion County could prove to be equally bumpy.

    Experiencing a natural dilution of talent because of the formation of cross-town rival Collins High School, the Rockets (0-3) have been further hampered by injuries to key two-way starters Brandon Ford, Justin Stewart and Logan Forrest.

    Collins no longer in King of the Bluegrass

With touted sophomore Darryl Hicks figuring to be part of the Titans' team, Collins was an early invitee to this prestigious event.

Jeffersontown, fueled by its own flow of out-of-state transfers, is expected to be a state championship contender this year.
