  • They're fulltime now 

    NFL officials.  
    Arguably, they have a very thankless job, receiving sharp criticism from players, fans and coaches alike. They are tasked with making split-second decisions with over 60,000 fans in the stands- not to mention the millions more tuning in from home via the television - watching and ready to voice their disapproval of any of those split-second decisions. Not to mention, they are also tasked with applying and enforcing a 244-page rulebook during the games they officiate.

    By Larry Vaught

    With all the football he watches on the practice field or in the film room, Kentucky secondary coach Steve Clinkscale doesn’t always want to watch football on TV when he gets home.
    Often, though, his wife, Jasena, has a different idea.
    “My wife watches more football at home than I do. I come home and I don’t want to watch football and she wants to watch football all day Saturday and Sunday. I just want to watch TV and relax. But not her. She loves watching football,” said Clinkscale.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Knights face...

    When Marion County takes the court for its first volleyball games, a win is not a given. In fact, the first three games Marion County has on the schedule could go either way, according to Head Coach David Hibbard.
    “It just depends on how well we show up and play,” he said. 
    The first matchup of the 2017 season Lady Knights, against Woodford County Yellowjackets, was last night in Versailles. Hibbard expected it to be an evenly contested matchup.
