  • A fighting chance

    Luke Inman’s boxing career didn’t begin in the gym.

    No, it began much earlier.

    From the darkest of circumstances, Inman has battled to build a boxing career. Last week, Inman realized one of his biggest dreams, signing with USA Boxing.

    Inman, 16, began boxing approximately three years ago. He said self-defense first motivated him to step into the boxing ring.

  • Never lose hope

    He went 26-2 as a starting quarterback. He led his team to two national championship game appearances. He was named the Offensive Player of the Year in the SEC a few seasons ago.

    Then, in the national championship game against Georgia at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, he was benched after a lackluster first half of play. The quarterback who replaced him led a second-half comeback and won the national title in overtime. Then that quarterback is named the starter for next season and he became the backup.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights hungry for win against Indians

    Zion Harmon is gone. Corey Melton is gone. Dre Boyd is gone.

    What’s not gone is Marion County’s burning desire to finally grab a win over the Adair County Indians, and the Knights’ first chance to get it comes at 8 p.m., Eastern, Friday, at the Roby Dome.

    Since upsetting Adair County 68-57 in the district tournament on Feb. 25, 2016, Marion County has been blanked by the Indians, losing five straight. That losing streak includes a heartbreaking 79-77 loss in January of this year and an 86-76 loss in last season’s district tournament.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights off to undefeated start

    Defense has been the name of the game for the Marion County Lady Knights. Through three games, Marion County is allowing a mere 29.7 points per game and is off to a perfect 3-0 start.

    “3-0 is pretty important,” Head Coach Kelly Wood said. “You want to start well. I’ve been doing this a long time and I know it’s not a sprint. It’s a marathon. We got to continue to get better and not rest on what we’ve accomplished in one week.”

    Wood complimented his players and the fan support Marion County has received this season.

  • Vaught’s Views: Kentucky commit J.J. Weaver impresses with “freakish” ability on field

    If you want to know how good Louisville Moore defensive end/linebacker J.J. Weaver is, let Western Hills receiver Wandale Robinson explain.

    “When you want to talk about freak, that is a freakish athlete right there,” Robinson, a four-star player and winner of this year’s Paul Hornung Award as the state’s top football player, said. “That is somebody who is 6-6 and to be that big and move the way he can with a first step like he has, he can do a lot of different things.
