Every season someone comes out of virtually nowhere to have a killer year. We saw this when Breathitt’s Caden Hogg came out his senior year with an All-State caliber year after having spent most of his time, before then, warming the bench. Will Ethan Gipson pull a Caden Hogg? Well…he just might! Enjoy the article. HB.
The Class of the Commonwealth was released by the Lexington Herald-Leader. Many of the seniors heralded were “mountain kids.” We broke down the “mountain kids” for you in this article and talked a little more in depth about each one. Enjoy the article and congratulations to every kid, mountain or otherwise, who made the squad. HB.
No team gets them all. The Coaches’ All-State Football team was just announced and it was a fine one with every player we saw deserving of selection. Still, we feel they undervalued some of the players and missed on some others. So here are our “friendly amendments and additiions” to the Coaches’ team. The media team will be out before you know it and I am pretty sure we will screw the pooch in the eye of many when it
First off, everyone of the “spectators” who will be taking in the festivities in round 2 of the KHSAA football playoffs would rather still be playing.

The mark was formerly held by Ryan Timmons of Franklin County who averaged 15.73-yards per carry the year he set the record. What is Geeny doing? We have it for you right inside this
The two players we are featuring together in this article are two guys who both relocated to Jackson, Kentucky (as luck would have it) during this summer. Both of their parents found employment in the area and uprooted their respective families. The Collins family has long-standing ties to Breathitt County High School as the Collins boys prior to CA Collins all played at Breathitt. The Longs had never been to Jackson, Kentucky before finding employment in the area and deciding to locate there.

Someone contacted old Coach Lyon and asked when we were going to put out our preseason top-10 football polls for each classification.
