  • Just hold the mushrooms

    We only thought Anderson County's football turnaround came about when Blake Curtsinger and Matt Sprague blocked a Bullitt Central extra point, in overtime, back on Oct. 8.
    Makes sense, you know. The Bearcats were 3-3, teetering on the brink of .500 or less. Since then, they are riding a six-game win streak, managed to win only the third district title in school history and have rolled to a pair of playoff wins for the first time since Kentucky started determining state football champions with a tournament in 1959.

    The question has come from Anderson CountyBearcat faithful and opposing fans alike.
