    This year, the Braves finished 11th overall at the state tournament, which was held at Bowling Green Country Club Oct. 3-4.

  • Braves dominated by Anderson...

    Anderson County’s Andrew Lykins returned the kickoff 48 yards for a touchdown to open the game and the Bearcats never looked back.

    How could Kentucky not have seen an uncovered Florida receiver on two different plays that gave the Gators two easy touchdowns? How could no one on the field seen a receiver waving his arms for the football because no one was lined up close to him? How could 11 UK staff members in the pressbox not noticed or how could no one on the UK sideline not seen a player standing five yards from them with no one on him?
