    By Larry Vaught

    Fans will have a chance to meet and greet University of Kentucky football players Saturday at Commonwealth Stadium during Fan Day. My guess is that one of the most popular players will be freshman linebacker Kash Daniel of Paintsville.
    Sure, he's a Kentucky guy. And a Kentucky guy from eastern Kentucky who never wavered in his commitment to the Wildcats.
    He's also a special football player with unique skills. He won the Paul Hornung Award in Kentucky and was a U.S. Army All-American.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Mixed results at...

    The Marion County Lady Knights were in action in the Bluegrass State Games over the weekend.

  • BOYS SOCCER: Coach has ‘high...

    The Marion County High School Boys Soccer Team is looking to build off its 2015 campaign, in which they advanced to the Fifth Region Tournament as runner-ups of the 18th District. The Knights finished with a 10-11 record last season.
    "We were competitive last season," Head Coach Greg Conley said. "We didn't go as far as we wanted to go last season, and this season I am looking to make sure that doesn't happen again. I want to do something this postseason. I have high expectations for this team.”

    I don’t always get the chance to read these columns once they go to print. And as many of you may have noticed, I don’t do a very good job of editing them before I hit the send key on my laptop.
    So you can imagine how I felt when I did look at the headline in The Kentucky Standard that accompanied my June 29 diatribe.
    “Bunkers still pose a challenge for this duffer.”
    I’m a duffer, huh.

  • Back at it

    It's already the end of July, and we are quickly approaching the beginning of many things: school (not particularly looking forward to it personally), football season and high school sports. As the season draws closer, the sports team are already out on the field practicing their techniques, getting in shape for the upcoming season, and receiving advice from their coaches. Sports players themselves have all sorts of responsibilities and jobs, from protecting the quarterback, to protecting the basket, to guarding their man, and many, many other tasks.

  • GIRLS SOCCER: Lady Knights will...

    The Marion County High School Girls Soccer Team is looking to put a winless 2015 season behind them and start new. This season, the Lady Knights have a new head coach, Daniel Johnson, who was hired to take over for Derek Cissell earlier this month.
    "I wasn't the coach last season, but even though they didn’t win any games, they were competitive and had a shot to win in the district tournament," Johnson said.
    The Lady Knights will have 25 players this season, including three seniors: Taylor Simpson, Holly Hutchins and Hannah Peterson.

  • Southern Kentucky Kats champs

    The Southern Kentucky Katz girls 8U softball team won the 2016 SummerCruise in Somerset on July 23rd. The Southern Kentucky Katz beat Bluegrass Force out of Lexington 12-8 in the championship.
