’23 WR/DB performing incredibly coming down the home stretch to 6A title chance
Camron Brogan is a ’23 prospect and the 5’11,” two-way star is performing at an incredibly high clip entering the 6A title game matchup with Louisville’s Male High. The Chargers won this matchup earlier in the year but that will have zero impact Saturday on Kroger Field in Lexington. In fact, the earlier win could hurt Bullitt East. It is incredibly hard to beat a good team twice. What will make a difference is if Brogan plays up to his recent standard and should he get a little help from his friends, Travis Egan and Mason Gauthier.Fletcher W.

The Beetles wrote one fine song for a movie it released entitled, “Yellow Submarine.” To be more specific, the song was a collaboration between John Lennon and Paul McCartney, but that could be said about most all of the Beetles’ songs.
The song was released in 1967. It was entitled, “With a little help from my friends.”
Bullitt East would do well to be humming that song entering Kroger Field around its 4:00 PM kickoff with Louisville’s Male High this coming Saturday. The fact the Chargers won the game between the two on October 21st in Mount Washington, Kentucky won’t mean much Saturday.
The fact the Chargers have won 13 in a row, haven’t lost a game since the opener (19-16) with Spencer County (10-2; Class 4A, District 3), or that Male High enters the game tagged with four losses (10-4), equally meaningless. Male High is a perennial contender for the 6A crown.
Male’s Bulldogs beat PRP, St. Xavier, Henderson County, and Ballard to get here. Don’t kid yourself, Male will be favored to win its 16th title overall and 9th “official” title (Titles: 1924, 1937, 1943, 1944, 1945, 1951, 1954, 1960, 1963, 1964, 1993, 1998, 2000, 2015, 2018) when the two teams square-off this weekend.
Still, we like the Chargers in this game provided they get high-level production from where the team has been getting it. In the semis, the teamwork shone both brightly and brilliantly.
QB, Travis Egan, one of our top dual-threats in Kentucky, was 20 for 28 for 247-yards and 4-TD’s in the game with Bryan Station (Lexington). Egan, showing off his hooves, gained 74-yards on 17-carries with a TD over the ground to complement his passing statistics.
Mason Gauthier was certainly no “slouch.” Gauthier carried the football 19-times, gaining g 162-yards and scoring a pair of rushing TD’s in the Bryan Station game.
Those two spectacular performances aside, it is hard to favorably compete with what Camron Brogan did on both sides of the football. Brogan, a 5’11” WR/DB combo player who also plays guard on the varsity basketball team, caught 10-passes, gaining 141-yards receiving with a TD-reception to his credit.
Defensively, Brogan had a whale of a game too. Now Passes Broken UP (PBU’s) is not a statistic which gets regularly recorded until one gets to college. However, though we don’t have an accurate number for you in PBU’s, we can tell you he was active back in the defensive third level.
What we do know is Brogan had two tackles. Brogan also picked a Bryan Station pass and returned it 40-yards to pay dirt.
Like we said, Brogan came up “big time” on both sides of the ball in the semis.
If Brogan can replicate that type performance in the championship game, and if he can “get a little help from his friends” Egan and Gauthier, this Bullitt East team may just put a “Charge” into the Mount Washington community Saturday night. They may do more than that; they just might walk off the field 6A champions.
