Connor Marshall (Class of 2020) has come into his own, looking for big senior year

How was Ray Graham able to step in and turn around a Thoroughbred football program in Cynthiana, Kentucky (Harrison County) which had won a total of 9 games from 2014-2017? Well, it certainly didn’t hurt to have a Marshall on hand. Coach Graham had previously coached two other Marshalls, one named Bubba, the other named Cliff. Now he’s coaching Connor.

Adam McCune, football is a family tradition (Featured Photo: Brendon Miller, Bluegrass Sports Nation)…

A lot of people questioned the legitimacy of our Class 5A poll because we didn’t have Montgomery County’s Indians among the top-ten teams. The mild uproar was understandable as Egli’s Indians have scalped 19 of the previous 25 opponents over the 2017 & 2018 seasons.
