  • Peach warns giddy Bearcats, ‘Don’t get distracted’

    Mark Peach wasn’t about to dampen the spirits of his Anderson County football team Friday night.

    Not on a night when the skies were threatening to dampen everything around Louisville.

    And especially not when the Bearcats had dismantled Valley to go 4-0 for the first time since 2009. That doesn’t seem that long ago, but when you remember that the current Bearcats were in the first, second and third grades the last time Anderson was still perfect four games in, it really is significant.

    LOUISVILLE -- Kicking the door in? This was a total demolition.

    “All week, he had been saying we needed to come out and kick the door in,” Anderson County junior Charles Andrew Collins said of Coach Mark Peach’s effort to motivate the Bearcats for Friday’s football game at Valley.

    The door was down in 15 seconds. On the game’s first play from scrimmage, Collins took a handoff, then motored 60 yards for a touchdown. It was the perfect start to a night when Anderson did little wrong in routing the hosts 45-7.
