    The Marion County Youth Football Junior Team romped LaRue County 30-6 to win the league title late Saturday night at Nelson County High School. The game was tied 6-6 at the half, but Marion County scored 12 points each in the third and fourth quarter to clinch the league title.

  • A new man

    Weight loss is a difficult journey for anyone to take on. Focus, self-accountability and support are all needed to make the weight loss journey a successful one.

    If you ask La’Bryant Churchill, he’s got all three. The junior football player for the Marion County Knights has been on quite the weight loss journey recently, losing more than 80 pounds in a span of four months.

    It’s a journey that Churchill is very thankful he went on.

  • The media and sports

    After the Alabama Crimson Tide football team took a 51-14 win over the Louisville Cardinals in the Camping World Kickoff back on Sept. 1, ESPN reporter Maria Taylor asked Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban about Alabama’s quarterback situation, which was a hot topic since last season’s national championship game. Then, Saban benched starter Jalen Hurts at halftime for Tua Tagovailoa, who led the Tide to a comeback victory. Saban refused to name a starter heading into the game against Louisville. Eventually, Tagovailoa started the game. Hurts saw action as well.

  • Vaught's Views: Wandale Robinson is elite athlete and a needed recruiting boost

    Kentucky football got a terrific athlete when Western Hills star Wandale Robinson committed to coach Mark Stoops’ team over Nebraska, Alabama, Ohio State, Purdue and Michigan last week. But Kentucky also got a huge boost for in-state recruiting when Robinson reversed a three-year trend of the state’s top players picking out of state schools.

    Robinson decided he wanted to be what former UK offensive coordinator Neal Brown called a “hometown hero” and play for the state school knowing it could have lifetime benefits for him.
