    Rob Reader believes a coach-led team can be good. A player-led team, however, can be great.

    In two months as Marion County’s head football coach, he has shown his commitment to that belief.

    A team council, tasked with discussing team issues with Reader, was formed. The council, which the players voted on, wrote a mission statement that will guide the team into a new era after four seasons of struggle: “Rise from the past to change the future.”

    By Larry Vaught

    His first two years at Kentucky he played in all 26 games but linebacker Kash Daniel really was not much more than just a special teams player.

  • ‘Experience of a lifetime’

    Marion County High School senior Jayla Cowherd recently returned from Australia, where she competed in the Down Under Sports volleyball tournament. Cowherd, a member of the MCHS volleyball team, said the trip greatly benefited her as a volleyball player.

    The 2018 season for the Marion County Knights was rough. The Knights only managed three wins — though one was a district tournament victory.

    David Hibbard believes this season could be a season to remember for the Marion County Lady Knights.

    That is, if everything falls into place.

    The Lady Knights return a considerable amount of firepower off last season’s team, and reinforcements might be on the way as Marion County prepares for a potentially history-making 20th season.

    Four seasons have passed since Marion County’s last district title in 2014. Since then, the Lady Knights have watched as the Taylor County Lady Cardinals have won four consecutive district titles.
