    By Larry Vaught

    JJ Traynor has gone from a player who averaged 11.2 points and 8.6 rebounds per game for Bardstown, which only had a 15-16 record last year, to a top 100 recruit nationally in a matter of months.

    The 6' 8" Traynor, the son of 1993 Kentucky Mr. Basketball Jason Osborne, is now the highest-rated in-state player in the 2020 recruiting class and Bardstown coach James “Boo” Brewer, a former Louisville player, says he has changed dramatically as a player in recent months to earn that boost in the national rankings.

    According to Head Coach David Hibbard, Marion County’s performance in the Bowling Green Scrimmage was a significant improvement from a lackluster effort in the Bluegrass State Games earlier this month.

  • BOYS SOCCER: Knights shut out in...

    The Marion County Knights were playing well in the first half. The second half? Not so much.

    The Knights were shut out in their season opener, 3-0, against the Thomas Nelson Generals on Aug. 13 in Bardstown.

    While Marion County had only four shots on goal in the first half, Head Coach Greg Conley said the Knights played well in the first half.

    “We played absolutely outstanding in the first half,” he said. “Stringing passes together. Controlled most of the game. We looked good, and we played very well. Played like a unit.”

  • Over a helmet

    In March, NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown was traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Oakland Raiders. The trade came after Brown had become increasingly upset with the Steelers. Brown’s issues with the Steelers included a rocky relationship with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who wasn’t afraid to publicly criticize the star receiver. Brown also showed up late to several team meetings, and he was benched in the Pittsburgh’s season finale last year, just to name a few issues.
