    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.

    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.

    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.
