  • Thorobreds’ offense hopes to...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds face a daunting schedule this season even more so with the addition of AAA state runner-up Belfry and must figure out a way to score more points.  
    One way is to improve the passing accuracy of returning starting quarterback Joe Korona.

    The potential comes from last year’s leading scorer and fastest runner senior Jacob Marsh, who is currently being sidelined by a severe ankle sprain. Marsh suffered this sprain before the regional track meet last spring and is still being treated for the ailment.
