  • Scrimmage set for Friday with special teams still unsettled

    The Harrison County Thorobreds football squad heads northeast to Rowan County Friday night for a 6 p.m. scrimmage. 

    This will be a full-contact scrimmage with three regular 12-minute quarters and one quarter with a continuous clock, so not to be a regulation game. There will be no extra periods. 

    Ticket prices are $4 for adults and $2 for students.  After last Friday’s Maroon/White game, many questions have been answered and some mistakes noted and corrected, but the special teams still have some questions. 

  • Fact or fiction: Officials continue to delve into sightings of wild animal at Connersville

    Rumors continue to spread about a possible wild animal in the Connersville area.

    “His dog was tore all to pieces,” Conservation Officer Patrick Brannen said about Tim Humpheries’ dog.

    Humpheries’ dog was attacked twice in the month of July.

    Last week, another Connersville resident Wanda Jones took her dog to the vet after it was attacked.

    “Whatever it was that attacked that dog, it was the meanest animal you could think of...” Brannen said.

  • Sportsmanship in high school, maybe other levels too

    Before every high school football game, a sportsmanship statement is read to the players and over the public address system in the stadium. 

    Because it is long and there is a lot of noise, it is often not heard in the stadium and many officials choose to paraphrase rather than read the whole statement to the captains. 

    As football season approaches, I thought it would be appropriate to write it in my column so if someone actually reads my column, they will know what is being said on Friday night.
