    The Grant County Braves were held scoreless in a season-opening 19-0 loss on the road to Owen County.
    Braves Coach Jamie Dalzell put the blame for the loss on the team’s poor fundamentals.
    “Offensively, we must cut down on turnovers and penalties,” Dalzell said. “The turnover margin was too much to ever expect to win.”

    In the game, Grant County fumbled the ball six times, losing possession on five of the fumbles.
    Owen County gave the ball away on two fumbles.


    Kentucky opens the football season Sept. 2 at Southern Mississippi with high expectations after a 7-6 season and bowl bid last year. The Wildcats have been picked as high as third in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division by some college football analysts.


    With all the football he watches on the practice field or in the film room, Kentucky secondary Coach Steve Clinkscale doesn’t always want to watch football on TV when he gets home.
    Often, though, his wife, Jasena, has a different idea.
    “My wife watches more football at home than I do. I come home and I don’t want to watch football and she wants to watch football all day Saturday and Sunday. I just want to watch TV and relax. But not her. She loves watching football,” said Clinkscale.

    Experience normally proves invaluable for Southeastern Conference football players at any school. Kentucky certainly is no exception.
    Just ask junior cornerback Derrick Baity, a three-star prospect from Florida. He played all 12 games as a true freshman in 2015 and started four. Last season, he started all 13 games and had three interceptions, seven pass breakups and 42 tackles.
