    Last week, University of Florida starting quarterback Will Grier was suspended for one year after testing positive for performance enhancing drugs (PEDs). Grier since apologized for what he claimed was a “mistake” and said that he failed to check with medical staff before taking an over-the-counter supplement.
    That one mistake has potentially cost him his entire football career.

    Coming off a bye week, the Marion County Knights traveled to play the East Jessamine Jaguars on Oct. 16. The Knights, still looking for their first win, could not muster any offense, and were shut out, 58-0.
    "It was a lopsided game," Knight Head Coach Corey Crume said. "We had a really slow start and we couldn't match their speed and athleticism."
    Crume also said that the Knights (0-8) gave up several long runs early to the Jaguars (6-3).

    The Marion County High School girls soccer team ended their season last week when they lost 0-2 to LaRue County in their first and last game of the 18th District Tournament.
    “We came out on the losing side of things, but I thought the girls did really well following the game plan,” Head Coach Derek Cissell said.
    Having faced LaRue County before, the Lady Knights knew what they were up against. They were anxious about LaRue County junior, Gillian Nunn, who scored for the Lady Hawks.

  • Celebrating my newfound freedom

    Received some good news Friday!
    For those who didn’t know, or maybe care, I broke my left upper arm back in April. Since then I’ve been in a ‘clam shell’ cast, which really limited my movement. To make matters worse I was also told to “avoid people.” For me that was actually the worst part.
    So, no people, no driving, no nothing except staying inside and staring out the window… For the last six months!
