    By Larry Vaught

    If you are a Kentucky football fan, you either know Freddie Maggard or know about him. The former University of Kentucky quarterback has become a popular football media analyst for Kentucky Sports Radio, the UK Radio Network and others since his retirement from the National Guard.
    Most of us regard Freddie as one of the nicest, most caring people we have ever been around. However, his sister -- Samantha Burton of Corbin -- says her brother has his moments just like anyone else.

  • FOOTBALL: Too many turnovers...

    The Marion County Knights took the field on Sep. 2 for the season's first home game against the Bardstown Tigers and looked to bounce back from a rough loss at Elizabethtown a week earlier. But, they could not overcome first half mistakes as they lost 46-20.
    Knights Head Coach Allen Harmon said his team did not play a clean first half offensively.
    "We had too many turnovers," he said. "Just like against Elizabethtown, if you give them opportunities, they're going to make you pay."
