  • COLUMN: Got to love a kicker

    I never dreamed of throwing a touchdown pass or making a game-saving tackle in the Super Bowl.

    I just wanted to kick the game-winning field goal.

    Maybe it was because the first time my favorite team, the Dallas Cowboys, made it to the Super Bowl, they came up short. A rookie kicker, Jim O'Brien of the Baltimore Colts – THAT designation is showing my age – split the uprights from 32 yards with only five seconds to play.

  • Football: Bearcats to host old rival Mercer Friday night

    Remember those days when Anderson County and Mercer County was a good old-fashioned knock-down, drag-out fight on the football field?

    Through the 1980s and early 1990s it was arguably the biggest game on both teams' schedule in terms of post-season play since they were in the same Class AA district. Win, and chances were that team would have a good seeding in the state playoffs.

  • Bearcat soccer routs Bourbon for first win of season

    Anderson County got its first win of the boys' soccer season last Thursday, when the Bearcats routed visiting Bourbon County, 5-0.

    Bourbon fell to 1-10 on the year.
