  • SO CLOSE!

    Anderson County was nearly perfect on the football field Friday night.

  • Some real Friday Night Lights

    Well, Anderson County, how did you like some real Friday Night Lights?
    Just for a few minutes, forget the fact that John Hardin overcame a late deficit to defeat Anderson in the Class 5A, Region 2 championship game Friday night. The hurt, especially for the  nine seniors that put on shoulder pads for the final time as Anderson County High School students, will last. There is no denying that. The tears shed in the Bearcats' post-game meeting were profuse.

  • Rams' middle schoolers open...

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg Rams middle school basketball team has played three games so far this season, winning all three. 

  • Wishing hunting season had...

  • Picking the best ever not so easy

    Ralph Beard or John Wall?
    Really, who was the better guard? Was it Beard, the leader of Kentucky's Fabulous Five of the 1947 and 1948, or Wall, who did things on the basketball court never before seen in Lexington?
    Wall's year in Lexington might have done as much to educate fans who had never seen Beard – virtually everyone – due to several TV outlets doing stories on the comparison and showing 63-year-old film of Beard shooting from well out on the floor or dominating a defense.

  • Bearcat season ends in final...

    John Hardin quarterback Eli Mitchell found Jeremy Harness open in the end zone with 2:16 to play to give the top-ranked Bulldogs a 28-24 win over Anderson County in the Class 5A, Region 2 championship football game.

  • Bearcats out to prove state...

    Everyone knows the magnitude of the challenge facing Anderson County on the football field Friday night.

  • 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.

    (Editor's note: This article contains some of the writer's personal observations and explanations of the “All-time team” selection process.)

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