    “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.

We looked at where we are and made some changes. We made some changes in the formations. We had some players in different spots. We have to be willing to play the spots the team needs you to play.”

    Mark Peach almost seemed out of place Friday night as he talked about Anderson County’s performance in a storm-shortened 28-0 win at Mercer County.

    “You think about Kentucky in 1997,” the Anderson football coach began.

    Well, yes, that glorious Wildcat season saw Tim Couch throw for about a million yards as Hal Mumme’s “Air Raid” made its debut in Lexington. A whole bunch of those yards went to Craig Yeast, who had played his high school football at Harrodsburg on the field a few yards from where Peach was talking.
