Young plays for WKU against Vols

Former Harrison County offensive and defensive lineman Chris “Buba” Young saw his first varsity football action last weekend on a big stage. Young has earned the starting nod for Western Kentucky University’s Hilltoppers as the team’s long-snapper. Young, a red-shirt freshman, played for the Toppers in their 63-7 loss to the Tennessee Volunteers on Saturday at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville.

Young was a four-year starter for the Breds and was team captain his junior and senior seasons. He was named third-team all state as a center following his senior year in 2007. He is the son of James Young Jr. and Marye Ellen Young of Cynthiana.


HCHS season passes

Season ticket prices and game admission prices will remain unchanged for the 2009-10 school year, with one additional option available .

At the new stadium, there are 300 chair back seats in the middle section of the bleachers. Those seats will be offered as reserved seats for $50 per seat. If a family, or group, purchases at least four seats, they will also receive a parking pass that will get them a reserved parking spot close to the stadium.

In addition, to the five home varsity games, reserved seat holders will also get free admission to all junior varsity and freshman home games that will be played at Ingles Stadium.

Current varsity football players have been responsible for selling those seats as a fund-raiser for the football team. Anyone interested in purchasing those chairback seats can do so at the high school during regular business hours.

Ushers will be on hand at all varsity football games to ensure that only reserved seat ticket holders will occupy those seats.
