Throughout this fall, Herald-Leader visual journalist Ryan C. Hermens is venturing around Kentucky to capture how high school football brings communities together.
Most recently, as part of the ‘Friday Night Lens’ series, Ryan traveled to Pikeville to watch the Raceland Rams versus the Pikeville Panthers.
“Friday nights in Pikeville in the fall are always just a special time,” Jason Booher, Pikeville High school principal, said.
The Panthers defeated the Raceland 12-6.
Next up, Ryan will venture across the state, over 400 miles west of Pikeville, to Graves County for the county rivalry at Mayfield.
