  • REGIONAL CHAMPS! Bearcats slog...

    Anderson County was not going to let this one slip through its hands.

    The Bearcats scored with 3:02 to play, then intercepted two Franklin County passes in the final three minutes to defeat the Flyers, 31-28, in the Class 5A, Region 3 football championship game Friday night on a muddy field at Anderson County's Hollie Warford Stadium.

    The game-winner came when Zachary Carmichael sneaked into the end zone from two yards out. Carmichael then hit Ross Cox for the two-point conversion to set the final score.

  • FOOTBALL: Cox shines under...

    The media contingent that descended on Anderson County Friday night was a bit more than usual, even for a playoff football game.

    The reason, of course, was a chance to see Conner quarterback Drew Barker, who has committed to the University of Kentucky and is considered one of the Top 10 quarterback prospects in the nation.

    Anderson's defense pressured Barker enough that he completed just 6-of-23 passes. However, several on-the-mark passes fell through his receivers' hands.
