    By Larry Vaught

    Kevin Knox Sr. was a football player at Florida State and thought for many years that his son, Kevin Jr., might be an even better college football player than he was.
    Kevin Knox Jr. was a quarterback who could throw the ball 85 yards in the air, according to his father.
    “He could move and throw on the run,” Knox Sr. said. “But when he got to be 6-7 and wearing a size 16 1/2 shoe, we kind of started saying at 15 years old we might need to take a look at this.”

    REGION TOURNEY UPDATE: The Knights defeated the Hart County Raiders, 14-4, to advance to the semifinals in the regional tournament. Marion County played Bardstown Tigers Tuesday, May 30.

    Marion County made history against the LaRue County Hawks, notching a 20-win season for the first time since 2002. The Knights made more history against the Campbellsville Eagles, adding some illustrious hardware to the trophy case and doing something a Knights squad hadn't accomplished since 1988. 

  • Changing times

    The National Football League announced on May 23 that it was relaxing rules concerning touchdown celebrations among other rules changes. 
    The NFL, sometimes mockingly called the No Fun League for what many see as overbearing and restrictive celebration rules, will now allow players to use the football as a prop, celebrate on the ground and group celebrations. In a statement, the league said it was relaxing the rules on celebrations "to allow players more room to have fun after they make big plays."

    Jarred Vanderbilt will be reporting to Kentucky June 6 as scheduled and apparently is fine after injuring his lower right leg/ankle late in the Jordan Brand Classic in April.
    “Everything is going well,” said Robert Vanderbilt, Jarred’s father. “He’s feeling good, looking good. He just can’t wait until he gets his opportunity at Kentucky.”
    Robert Vanderbilt said his son was told to stay off the leg after the injury and has been doing exactly that.

    REGION TOURNEY UPDATE: The Lady Knights defeated the North Hardin Trojans Monday, 5-0, to advance to the semifinals in the Fifth regional tournament. Marion County played Hart County last night.

    Haley Mattingly was pitching lights out. 
    She had to, with her offense unable to find many runs. Then Abby Scott put a single into centerfield and later slid into home plate in the bottom of the fourth when Kelly Overstreet hit an RBI double with two outs.
