The Shelby County football team will try to defend three things tonight – its home field, the Class 5A, District 4 title and a very formidable foe.
If the Rockets can do all three, they surely will be celebrating.
They host Bullitt East at 7:30 in their Homecoming at Robert Doyle Stadium. A victory means they capture the district title for the second year in a row. If they lose, they’ll be seeded No. 2, 3 or 4, depending on a tiebreaker, in the state playoffs, which begin in two weeks.
Shelby County (4-3, 1-1) faces no simple task.
