It was the first time Collins had ever beaten Anderson and put the Lady Bearcats, the two-time defending district champions, in a major hole to earn the district tournament’s No. 1 seed for the third straight year.

    Although no one knew it at the time, the three little blessings Troy and Benita Young received in 1986 turned into one big blessing for all of Anderson County.

    Troy Young, then an officer with the Lawrenceburg Police Department who would arguably become the most accomplished sheriff in Anderson County history, had all but packed his bags for a job with the Jefferson County Police.

    “I went through the testing and got called to be in the next [training] class,” said Young. “That’s when, eight weeks early, our triplets were born.”
