Trojans return experienced starters as they move to 6A BY WILL PERKINS

Special to the Daily Times

The Trojans opted to be ineligible for postseason play in 2018, and they finished last season with a 3-7 record, defeating Monroe County, Ballard Memorial and Edmonson County. In 2019, Barren County will be competing in the 6A division. “We’re not ready yet, but just excited to get going,” Trojan coach Jackson Arnett said, adding that they have “a bunch of seniors” and “a bunch of experienced guys.” “We’re just ready to play,” he said. The Barren County coach said all of the seniors are the leaders of the team. “Most of them are returning starters,” he said. “Seniors are going to have to lead if we want to be very good.” After losing signal caller Zach Johnson to graduation, sophomore Jameson Buie is set to take the role as the starting quarterback for the Trojans. “He’s learning,” Arnett said of Buie. “He’s young. He’s very talented, but he’s young and learning. So we have a ways to go with him, but he’s ahead of most sophomores I would think.” Buie does have limited experience at quarterback as he threw two passes for two completions totaling 13 yards as a freshman. The Trojans will return senior running back Tyler Bush, who rushed for 386 yards on 71 attempts with two touchdowns. Barren County also returns offensive weapons in juniors Gavin Withrow and Jamarcus Miley. Last season, Withrow rushed for 251 yards on 64 attempts with one touchdown and caught 13 passes for 137 yards and a touchdown. Miley led the Trojan receivers with 369 yards on 20 receptions with four touchdowns while rushing for 95 yards on 13 attempts. On defense, now senior linebacker Easton Frazier led the team with 87 solo tackles while adding a forced fumble. Bush caught three interceptions, returning one of them for a touchdown.

The Barren County Trojans will depend on senior leaders like Tyler Bush as they move up to Class 6A in 2019.

“We still have a ways to go before we’re ready to compete in 6A ball,” Arnett said. “But that doesn’t mean we won’t. I just have to see more from us in practice. We just have to keep getting better, that’s the main thing.” The Trojan coach said this will be the first “normal year” since he’s been at the helm of the program. “First year we’ve had no stadium,” he said. “Last year we had mostly home games and we didn’t get into

the facilities until right before the season started. So this is the first normal year we’ve had where facilities are functioning and everything is rolling the way it’s supposed to be.” Arnett said he hopes having that stability during the offseason will translate to more consistency on the field. The Trojans will open their season on the road against Class 2A Metcalfe County.

Senior-heavy Caverna team more disciplined and more dedicated BY WILL PERKINS

Special to the Daily Times

Last season, the 1A Colonels went 1-10 (after Green County forfeited their contest due to an ineligible competitor). Caverna is looking to continue building its football program, and coach Eric Lasley, who is heading into his third year at the helm of the program, said he is excited about his returning players. “We’re senior-heavy this year,” he said. “So I think that will be a bonus for us. “It’s my third year, so they know what to expect from me. So I think we’ll be OK.” Senior starting quarterback Drew Rhodes is “definitely our leader,” Lasley said. As a junior, Rhodes threw 115 passes for 45 completions, collecting 599 yards with six touchdowns and eight interceptions. Rhodes also caught 10 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown. On defense, he made seven solo tackles. “This is our third year together, so we’re not changing anything,” Lasley said of him and Rhodes. “He knows what I expect from him, and we’ve done a lot of talking in the offseason, and he’s ready to accept that role and step up.” Senior Zyier Yates is also another leader, the Colonel coach added. Last season, Yates rushed for 128 yards

on 37 attempts with two touchdowns. He also caught 12 passes for 155 yards and one touchdown. On defense, Yates caught an interception and made 10 solo tackles. Lasley said senior Mark Webb “is definitely going to be an asset for us this year.” As a junior, Webb rushed for 146 yards on 54 attempts, and caught 13 passes for 163 yards and two touchdowns. On defense, Webb made 11 solo tackles. After two seasons as the Colonel coach, Lasley said “if you looked at it by wins and losses, people will say we haven’t really progressed.” “But actually we have,” he said. “We’re a lot more disciplined now than we were. Our numbers have kind of decreased, but I think that’s because we’ve weeded out the guys that really don’t want to dedicate themselves to playing. “So I’m pretty excited about who we have.” Lasley said he is also happy to add Logan Baker as defensive coordinator. “Couldn’t ask for a better pick,” he said. “I don’t know how I got so lucky, but I’m just really glad to have him. “He brings a lot of energy, and he brings a lot of knowledge. He’s a great mind to have. I just couldn’t be happier with having him.” The Colonels open their season at home against 3A Hart County.

Caverna senior quarterback Drew Rhodes will lead the Colonels on offense in 2019 as they look to continue building the program under coach Eric Lasley.

‘More athletic’ Glasgow squad ready for move to Class 3A BY DANIEL SUDDEATH

dsuddeath@glasgowdailytimes.com

The Glasgow Scotties will look a little different this season, but they have plenty of tools to again make a deep run in the playoffs. Gone from a year ago are three starting offensive linemen including Tanner Bowles, who graduated and is now playing for the Alabama Crimson Tide.  But returning for the Scotties are an abundance of athletes and experienced players including senior quarterback Tanner Abernathy and senior running back Nick Mitchell.  “We’re not as big and strong as we were last year, but we’re more athletic,” Glasgow coach Jeff Garmon said.  Mitchell is coming off a 2,000-yard rushing performance in 2018, and Abernathy has been starting at quarterback since midway through his sophomore season.  The Scotties advanced to the region championship game last season where they lost to Walton-Verona. Garmon said Glasgow must adjust if it wants to make a deeper playoff run in 2019, and that means finding more sources for offensive production.  “No doubt he’s going to have a bullseye on his back after rushing for 2,000 yards,” Garmon said of Mitchell. “We’ve got to come up with some counterpunches, and that’s what we’ve been working on all summer.”  Expect to see a heavy dose of sophomore running back and receiver Hunter Scott in 2019. Scott was third on the team last season in rushing with 387 yards and four touchdowns on just 42 attempts, as he was primarily used to spell Mitchell.  “You’re going to see a lot more of Hunter and Nick on the field together,” Garmon said. “We’ve got a really good weapon in him.”  Though Jaden Franklin isn’t on the roster this year, Glasgow returns its leading receiver from last season in Kynarious Flynt. He will be complimented by sophomore receiver JaMarion Long and senior Denzel Wood.  “I really like our quarterback play. I like our running back play. I like our receiving play,” Garmon said.  Defensively, Garmon is concerned about the linebacker position and second tier after losing multiple players to graduation. Glasgow does return a key group of defensive linemen led by Chase Jones, Darian Johnson and Duran Johnson.  Julian Austin returns at cornerback for the Scotties and Carter McKeever is expected to start at the other corner.

Glasgow Scotties senior running back Nick Mitchell was among the state leaders in rushing last season.

GDT FILE PHOTO

Abernathy and John Myers will likely see a lot of time at the safety spots for Glasgow. The Scotties will be playing in a new district this season as they were bumped up from Class 2A to Class 3A. Garmon said it’s not something the team thinks about much, though he conceded Taylor County is considered the favorite in Class 3A District 2 after coming down from Class 4A.  There’s also a change in the postseason format this season that will see the first two rounds of the playoffs decided between district foes.  “The difference is the district championship isn’t decided in the regular season anymore,” Garmon said, referencing the fact that district teams will face each other during the first two rounds of the postseason. 

In addition to a new district, Glasgow is also facing arguably its toughest schedule in the past four years. Glasgow will face two defending state champions in Franklin-Simpson and South Warren. Glasgow’s opening opponent, LaRue County, advanced to semistate last year, as did Taylor County in Class 4A.  “You can’t beat them if you don’t play them,” Garmon said.  While this year’s squad may not have as much preseason attention on it as last season’s team, Garmon believes the 2019 version of the Scotties has a high ceiling and can be a threat in November.  “I think there’s enough here that we can do just fine and have a really solid football team when all is said and done,” he said.

Hornets are young, but ‘tough’ and ‘physical’ BY WILL PERKINS

Special to the Daily Times

Last season, the Class 2A Metcalfe County Hornets went 2-9 with victories over Adair County and Caverna. But with a lot of returning players, Metcalfe County hopes to improve in 2019. “I’m excited,” Hornet coach LJ Harbison said. “We return most of our players. We’re still young, but we return like 24 of our 30 players from last year. “We’ve got a group that knows the offense, knows the defense — so we don’t have to install a lot this year. We can build off of what we have. That’s always a plus, but we’re still going to be young — mainly sophomores and juniors. “We’ve had good practices so far and we’ve gotten better each day, so hopefully we can keep building.” Harbison said junior Gabe Zurmehly will lead the Hornets on defense and offense. “He led us in tackles (95) last year,” Harbison said. “He’ll probably break the 100 mark this year if we keep him healthy — he’ll be a running back also. He’ll get most of the loads.” Last season, Zurmehly rushed for 502 yards on 112 carries with three touchdowns. Sophomore Peyton Dial will be in his second year at the quarterback position. As a freshman, Dial threw 57 passes for 28 completions, collecting 229 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions. “Hopefully we’ll get him a little more comfortable,” Harbison said of Dial. “As the year went on (last season), he got his reps in and started seeing it better. He’s gotten to know the offense a lot better. “We’ve got to get him a little more vocal, but right now he’s taking control of the offense. He knows what read to hit. He knows what route they’re supposed to run, and then if they mess up, he goes and tells them: ‘Hey man, you can score a touchdown if you do this for me.’”

Coach LJ Harbison is entering his fifth year at the helm for Metcalfe County High School.

Harbison said the receivers are responding really well to that approach. “(Dial) has done a good job of taking control of the huddle and the offense,” he said. “You have to have that as a leader. It’s hard for a young buck to come in and take leadership, but he’s done it.” The Hornets have lost their linebacking core, Harbison said. “We’re going to be young,” he said. “There’s going to be some guys who played backup last year, but they’ve been looking good.” Harbison spoke highly of sophomores Luke South and Cole Shive, who are going to be stepping up on defense. “(Shive) is going to have some good

size on him in the future, we’re going to put some weight on him. But he can fly,” the Hornet coach said, adding that Shive is “a bruiser down there.” “Both of them got backup reps and ended up starting a few games (last season,” Harbison said. The Hornet coach said his lineman on both offense and defense are going to be young. “Not a lot of depth,” he said. “But, man, those guys, they’re working hard and there’s about 10 of them, and they work hard every day — day in and day out. “It’s a group that’s tight-knit. They want to push each other and that’s what

GDT FILE PHOTO

you gotta have.” Harbison described his players as “tough.” “We’re going to have to be tough,” he said. “We’re really young, and there’s going to be plays that an older guy is going to make on them — and they have to respond to me mentally, and they’ve got to respond physically to the challenges that’s going to be ahead. “We’ve got to be mentally and physically tough, and hopefully we can do that.” The Hornets will open their season at home against 6A Barren County on Aug. 23.

Falcons hoping to stay healthy and compete for district title BY DANIEL SUDDEATH

dsuddeath@glasgowdailytimes.com

Like other smaller schools within Class 2A, the Monroe County Falcons aren’t blessed with a huge roster, but the heart of their players makes up for what the team lacks in numbers. “We’re built on playing hard, hitting hard, running the football and playing sound defense,” Monroe County coach Billy Joe Murphy said.  The Falcons are hoping to continue their tradition of toughness while shedding one aspect of the game that plagued them last year — injuries.  Class 2A Monroe County played multiple quarterbacks last season due to injuries.  Senior Curtis Petett was one of those who went down to injury. He missed the past two seasons with leg injuries, but is back and ready to lead the Falcons in 2019.  “He’s doing a good job for us, leading, controlling the huddle and performing well,” Murphy said.  Monroe County advanced to the second round of the playoffs last season before falling on the road to Walton-Verona.  Senior Falcon Jholdi Brooks, a running back and defensive back, had to step in at times in 2018 and play quarterback. He believes the team will have an advantage this season just because more players will be back at their natural positions.  “I think our strength is definitely going to be offense this year. We have a lot of linemen back so hopefully our running game is a little better, and our protection a little better,” he said.  Fellow senior Gary Gearlds, a receiver and defensive back, said the defense will be hard-nosed and the offense will have a good balance in the passing and rushing attacks.  “We’re excited. We’ve been practicing really hard and the team is coming together,” he said.  In order to compete for a District 3 title and advance in the postseason, Gearlds said the Falcons will have to continue to grow together as a team.  “Teamwork makes the dream work,” he said.  With Glasgow moving up to Class 3A, there will be a new District 3 champion this season. But with district teams playing each other in the first two rounds of the playoffs beginning this year, Murphy said there’s not as much emphasis on the regular season district games as

Monroe County receiver Wade Thompson is among the Falcons with considerable playing experience who will be returning for the 2019 season.

there was previously. But Murphy said that won’t change Monroe County’s weekly preparations.  “It’s different, but we’re going to treat every game like it’s the most important, because it is,” he said.  The Falcons return several starters and contributors from last season including Wade Thompson, Kale Hagan and Nick Coffelt. Murphy said Monroe County will lean on its seniors and hopefully stay healthy in 2019. 

Attention to detail will also be important for the Falcons. “When your players buy into the game plan and have great practices, you’re going to see the results,” Murphy said.  The Falcons open with Clay County (Tennessee) before playing against Hart County and Glasgow.  “We’re excited about the schedule. It’s going to be challenging as always,” Murphy said.
