Pigskin stories

Recent high school football coverage of note from the Herald-Leader and other outlets across the state:

First date (Josh Moore, LHL): Alex Slitz and I experienced the St. Xavier-Trinity rivalry — Kentucky’s most prolific — for the first time last week. Slitz produced a fun video recap of the day, too.

Broncos’ leader back (Josh Moore, LHL): Frederick Douglass head coach Brian Landis was absent from last week’s game against Bryan Station but is back for the Broncos’ big game at Scott County.

Logan’s run (Elliott Pratt, Bowling Green Daily News): Elliott Pratt recapped Logan County’s come-from-behind win against Hopkinsville to remain undefeated.

‘I’m not mad at that at all.’ (Josh Moore, LHL): Tates Creek defeated Madison Central on Thursday night, in part thanks to a heads-up touchdown that could have went the other way.

Wright arm (Jason Frakes, Courier-Journal): Milton Wright, a junior star, is now starting at quarterback for defending 2A champ Christian Academy of Louisville.
