    The Shelby County High School football team was rested and ready Friday night.

    The Rockets returned from the bye week in a big way, hammering visiting North Oldham 29-3.

    The Rockets (4-3, 1-1 in the district) dominated from opening kickoff, racing out to a 20-3 lead in the first half, and limiting the Mustangs (3-4, 1-1) to just 95 yards of total offense for the game, including -9 running the ball.

    The dominating performance, SCHS coach Todd Shipley said, is due in large part to the players getting used to their roles on defense.


    The Collins High School football team reset its focus on the end of the season with its bye this week.

    The Titans are 1-6 on the season, picking up their first win Sept. 21 before falling at Franklin County last week before their bye.

    Collins head coach Jerry Lucas said team took a back-to-basics approach on offense and defense this week.

    “We’ve worked on fundamentals this week, and we put a lot of time in on our offensive and defensive schemes,” Lucas said.


    Fresh off a bye week, the Shelby County High School football team finds itself ready to go tonight as the Rockets play host to North Oldham High School at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    “The week off was good, hopefully we’re a little healthier,” SCHS coach Todd Shipley said.
