  • FOOTBALL: State's top rusher visits Friday

    Anderson County's defensive game plan for Friday night could be an exercise in futility before it ever gets tested.

    The mission? Stop Devin Taylor.

    The odds of that happening? Oh, roughly equal to the chances of going through the grocery store checkout line without reading something about the Kardashians.

    It ain't gonna happen.

    VERSAILLES – There would be nothing strange happening at Woodford County Stadium Friday night.

    “It is a lifelong dream. It hasn't really sunk in yet,” senior Nick Wilson said Thursday, as the Bearcats gathered at Wild Turkey Trace for a practice.
